Top 5 Tips To Style Your Room For Maximum Comfort
With summer peeping its head just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to say ‘out with the old’ and ‘in with the new’. Which is why we’ve put together our top 5 tips to style your room for maximum comfort this season.
Colour Me Comfortable
The psychology of colour is scientifically proven to affect your moods. So when it comes to choosing a palette for your space try to incorporate soothing colours like greys, blues and dusty pinks. Unlike more stimulating colours like reds, oranges and yellows these colours will instantly create a warm and comforting environment, perfect for relaxation.
Cushions and blankets and throws (oh my!)
It might seem like a no-brainer but introducing more soft furnishings into your home is the perfect first step towards creating a welcoming environment. Be sure to invest in luxurious textiles like linen, velvet, organic cottons and silk. Buying smaller, high quality items are an easy way to give your room a lift without having to resort to a full style overhaul.
Take a deep breath
Did you know that your sense of smell is one of the major factors in relaxation? Which is why designing a ‘scent aesthetic’ for your space can be just as important as deciding on the visual one. Enhance your surroundings with calming scents from organic soy candles or mist your linens and textiles with a lightly scented room spray. Not only will it refresh your furnishings, but also your sense of wellbeing.
Get in touch with your natural side
Harsh lighting and unnatural surface textures like plastic and vinyl can instantly make your space feel cold and alien. So if you’re looking to tone down your space and make it feel more inviting, try introducing more natural fibers into your space with quality accents like hand woven baskets and linen table runners.
Tone down the lights
While you always want your space to be well lit enough to navigate without sustaining injury, there’s nothing quite like a harsh or abrasive lighting schemes to make you feel on edge. Filter harsh sunlight through silk net curtains to give your room a welcoming glow, or invest in quality warm LED light bulbs. You’ll be amazed what softening your room’s light can do to make it instantly feel more comfortable and relaxed.
