Turn your home into an oasis of peace

Our homes are our own private sanctuaries. And while we all want to create a beautiful interior with an inspiring design, we should really be focusing more on creating a space that fosters love and peace everywhere you look.

However, achieving perfect peace and a balanced, harmonious design can be somewhat elusive with scattered shoes in the hallway, piles of clothes on the floors of bedrooms and everyday clutter in the living room – not to mention dirty dishes in the kitchen. On the other hand, by implementing simple design tweaks here and there and introducing slight changes to your lifestyle, you’ll easily manage to turn your home into an oasis of peace. Don’t believe us? Just watch.

Welcome everybody


The change of these proportions should start right from your very doorstep. First of all, don’t treat your entrance door like just a passage that leads indoors. Show them some love and make all of your visitors feel welcome as soon as they approach them. Aside from treating them with a fresh coat of paint and making sure they look nice and polished, you should embellish them with an interesting door ornament or a seasonal wreath. Furthermore, make sure to add an interesting doormat that can even turn to an excellent conversation starter.

Cosy feelings all around


Next, make sure you touch-up your hallway design a bit as well. If there are a lot of shoes in your household, make sure you enhance your storage space, so that everyone has a place to leave their belongings – and thus contribute to keeping your home looking clean and clutter-free at all times. Additionally, spice the design up by creating a fun DIY key holder – this can even be a fun family project – that will add some visual interest to this area.

Take care of the heart of the home


The kitchen is the place where we spend some of the most precious moments with our family. Whether we’re preparing food or enjoying it together, the most important thing is that we’re all together. However, the thing that most commonly hinders every kitchen design is dirty dishes. So, to make sure that your kitchen always looks presentable and clean, ask your family members to rinse and load their plates and cutlery into the dishwasher as soon as they are done eating. This way, all of the dirty dishes will be stored out of sight, patiently waiting to be cleaned.

Cozy-up the living room

The living room is usually the second busiest room in a house. Therefore, no matter how well-put-together it is, make sure you try to cosy it up just a bit more. First of all, take care of the everyday items that create a visual mess, such as magazines and TV guides, by getting beautiful storage solutions – for example, wicker baskets, where you can put those items away when they are not in use. Next, enhance the design by creating a gallery wall where you can display all of your favourite family photos. If you have a beautiful family, don’t hide it! Finally, fill the area with greenery as plants are known to have a soothing effect on us.

Don’t forget about romance

When it comes to your bedroom, the only two vibes you should really be aiming at are comfort and romance. While a lot of people neglect the latter, keeping the romance alive is of the utmost importance. So, if your bedroom is already pretty cosy, boost the romantic vibe by filling the space with amazing candle jars that will help you set the mood just right whenever you feel like you need some extra cuddling.

Indulge all your senses


Finally, the bathroom is the place where we start and end each day of our lives. That’s why it’s very important that our bathrooms are designed in such a way to foster relaxation and self-care. Give your bathroom a spa twist by decluttering it, adding some scented candles, playing soothing music whenever you take a bath and filling it with another spa-like decor.

So, if you feel like your home could use some of these touch-ups, get inspired, roll up your sleeves and treat your home to a few simple upgrades that are bound to make a world of difference.
