The beginning of 2020 calls for a major focus on stress-relief and relaxation! Making way for a place in your home that is solely dedicated to positive vibes only is the ultimate form of self-care! With a simple refresh, you can create a Zen Den made to help you unplug, unwind and let go of all your daily stresses.
How To: Create Your Zen Den
Colour Me Softly
Never underestimate the power of colour and how i translates into a soothing and productive mood in your home! A zen-inspired design is all about neutral shades, such as white, grey, and beige. If you’re a fan of colour, soft blues, greens and lavender are also known to induce a sense of relaxation and calmness.
Surround Yourself in Comfort
Instead of solely focusing on what the room needs to do, or the certain way you want it to look, focus on the feeling you want your zen den to embody. This is captured both by touch and sight, making your design come to life through cozy and textured upholstery, throws, cushions and poufs.
Look to Nature for Inspiration
Not only do houseplants have a calming effect through their soothing green colours, they also absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen to promote better health for your home. Quite often, a simple splash of greenery is all you need to shift energy in a room from stressed and anxiety-ridden to calm and collected!
Less is More
A calming environment is characterized by a sense of simplicity, avoiding complication, and unnecessary “stuff.” For a fully harmonious space, it’s all about cutting the clutter and embracing a minimalist design. Your storage situation is an important aspect to pay attention to, as excess items may prevent energy from flowing freely in your room.
