If you want a more relaxing vibe in your home, you might also want to play around with the colour scheme. The new year is a wonderful excuse to repaint the walls for a fresh look.
For instance, light colours and blue always create an instant relaxing tone that would be a help when creating a calm home for 2019. An example is the photo above, where the light blue-grey walls and white trim make for an open, relaxed space.
You might also want to look into colours that say relaxation to you on a personal level. Earthy tones tend to be relaxing. Or you might feel particularly soothed by lavender. It’s your calm home space, so make sure it speaks to you individually.
Don’t forget the plant life if you equate relaxation with nature. For nature lovers, there’s nothing quite as relaxing as having nature around you in the home. A great example is the photo above. This artsy space shows how a few floor plants can fit into the most contemporary of styles.
You can also put plant life on dining tables, end tables, mantels or shelves. The more you surround yourself with natural elements, the more relaxing the vibe of the room tends to feel. If you have a black thumb, you can also place highly realistic-looking faux plants around your home.
