Create Interiors That Give You a Sense of Calm
Many of us have feelings of stress because we are overwhelmed by the demands in our lives. What better goal to consider in your home decorating plans than to create a home environment that’s calming and relaxing, both on the eyes and on the soul.
Simple doesn’t mean plain or unattractive. Simple design can create a sophisticated, traditional and elegant look or a modern and minimalist feel. The goal is to reduce chaos and over-decoration and to minimize clutter and confusion.
Plan on having only one or two focal points per room so that you can really “see” their beauty, rather than having a hodgepodge of color and design elements.
Limit the number of colors in your design and stick with subtle colors, rather than bold primary colors.
Make color transitions gentle. Avoid making too strong a statement between dark and light colors, such as black and white. However, keep in mind that you may want energizing colors in a room; for example, in a kitchen or home office where you’d like to be engaged and active.
Once you’ve created a simple, clean design, enjoy it! Allow yourself relaxing time to read a book or watch your favorite TV show, without answering the phone or responding to text messages. Spend time with your family or friends in a quiet way, without over planning your activities.
