Home is our refuge, the place where we feel at ease and safe. We want it to be a place that gives us rest and relaxation after a long day’ work or study.

In this post we offer some tips on how to create a relaxing atmosphere in your home, room by room. These are all simple ideas that you can easily put into practice.

The living room

This is where life happens, where we get together with family and friends, watch TV, read or just put our feet up and unwind.

To create a soothing atmosphere in your living room, consider the following:

  • Keep it tidy: Create a system that helps you keep everything organised in a way that suits your lifestyle.
  • Soft hues: Use pastel tones for walls and furnishings to evoke a sense of calm and tranquillity.
  • Nature’s touch: Plants, flowers and branches can help create a calmer, more harmonious environment. They also purify the air, infuse life into the space and perfume the home.
  • Decorative accessories: Create a cosy, personal atmosphere with items that resonate with you and that convey a sense of calm and well-being, such as family photos or pretty candles.

The bedroom

The bedroom is where we rest and recharge our batteries. It needs to be a quiet, relaxing space that will help us get to asleep.

Here’s how to make it the sanctuary you want it to be:

  • Soft lighting: For a warm atmosphere natural light is best, but in the absence of sunlight warm, dim light from lamps will create a soothing ambience.
  • Aromatherapy: Use scented candles, scent diffusers, or oils. Citrus aromas, such as orange or lemon, are stimulating and can help you feel more active. Floral scents, such as lavender or rose, promote relaxation and can help you fall asleep.

The terrace

The terrace is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. With a little planning, you can transform your terrace into an oasis of tranquillity, away from the stress of everyday life.

  • On a small terrace, a sofa or lounger will provide a cosy seating area. Add a side table for drinks or books and an umbrella or awning to protect you from the sun.
  • On a larger terrace you can divide the space to create a chillout area, a dining area and a reading nook.
  • To create a cosy, relaxing atmosphere, use soft, warm lighting such as candles, lanterns, or floor lamps.
  • For a personal touch, add items that have a special appeal for you and make you feel comfortable, such as a rug, cushions in your favourite colours or a water fountain.

The bathroom

The bathroom is where we make ourselves ready for the day. It should be clean, tidy and pleasant to be in. Try these tips:

  • Keep it clean and tidy. Clutter can create stress. Set aside time each week for a deep clean.
  • Decorate a corner or two with items in neutral or pastel tones for a calming vibe.
  • Add scented plants, flowers or candles.
