Amazing spaces: How to create a relaxing environment
Your home should be a haven but the reality is often quite different. Mess, kids, gadgets, laundry can all send stress levels soaring. But you don’t have to have a complete home makeover – coverting a small space is equally effective.
Inspired Wallpaper’s, Design Manager, Rebecca Baddeley, said: “By blurring the lines between work and rest, it can be hard to switch off. If you associate your home with working, it’s easy to get stuck in the trap of working when you should be relaxing. If you’re always checking emails at home, or stuck in your home office at the weekend, you might end up feeling burnt out and stressed.”
Here are Inspired Wallpaper’s top 5 tips for creating a sanctuary at home.
1. Go a shade paler
Pale greens, blues and lilacs are relaxing on the eye and help to promote a sense of wellbeing and relaxation.
2. Pick a nature print
Bring the outdoors in with a floral print inspired by nature. Palm trees, birds or flowers will provide a harmonious backdrop to your time out.
3. Think small
Don’t have a spare room? Don’t worry, using a small space to create a retreat can force you to be more creative. A reading nook, painting corner or even a window seat can be implemented almost anywhere.
4. Light it up
Natural lighting works best and will give you a Vitamin D boost, which can help with your muscle and bone health. Giving your windows a good spring clean can increase the amount of light in your house, so get scrubbing!
5. Make it sensory
Furnish your new space with super soft and cosy fabrics to really help you unwind after a hard day’s work.
