    HOW TO STYLE A SPACE THAT CREATES A SENSE OF CALM 

    We all need a space that we can go to escape the demands of modern-day life and to gain a sense of calm and rejuvenation. However, when left unchecked our homes can often become a place that leaves us feeling more overwhelmed than grounded. To help you style a space that feels like a serene sanctuary, we’ve pulled together our three top tips.

    CREATE SPACE 

    Styling a space that evokes a sense of calm begins with selecting pieces that embrace a simple, timeless aesthetic. These pieces will provide the perfect foundation for a sanctuary that will effortlessly evolve with your personal style over time. We recommend furniture that features clean lines and neutral colours to create a space that feels inviting and unencumbered. In addition, selecting pieces crafted from natural materials, such as solid-oak, will ensure their durability and longevity. 

    ADD FLOW 

    Just as we experience a sense of tranquillity and rejuvenation in nature, your home should be a sanctuary that supports calm and clarity. To achieve this, we recommend creating flow through considered styling and seamless storage. Designing your space in a way that allows for effortless movement, by considering the natural foot traffic of the room will make your home feel as though it is in harmony with your lifestyle. In addition, incorporating pieces that seamlessly store your items will create a sense of simplicity and alignment that helps you to find clarity. 

    A TOUCH OF GREENERY 

    There’s nothing quite like coming home to a space that helps you to feel reconnected with nature. Styling your space with touches of greenery is a simple way to achieve this while enjoying the added benefits to your wellbeing. Whether it’s a luscious Fiddle Leaf Fig or an eye-catching Palm, indoor plants are uplifting additions that can be carefully chosen to suit any space.
