If you’re anything like me, the space I live in needs to be calming. I need my living area to be my sanctuary and my peace. If not it has such an impact on my mental health. So I thought I’d share some tips on how you can create a peaceful and calm space in your home.
Light colours like white, grey, light brown, stone, light green colours really help to give a room that calm vibe. Whenever I introduce bright colours or a lot of pattern into my bedroom I find it really distracts me. It’s too much stimulation for my brain, so I tend to steer clear of bright and patterned things.
GREENERY IS ESSENTIAL
Plants really calm me (real or artificial). They brighten a place up and really help to bring some life into any room. Heres a list of plants that are effective for reducing stress but you can of course use whatever plants you love!
- Peace Lily
- Aloe Vera
- Spider Plant
- English Ivy
I have 2 pieces of wall art in my bedroom, they are of plants (shocker). Including wall art in your space that have calming words or images of calming places really help too. My favourite place to get wall art is Desenio. They have such a wide variety of pieces you can choose from.

Some people are blessed with homes that have big windows to let in lots of light and some of us don’t have much light at all. Create the calming atmosphere with dimmed lighting. Even adding a lamp into the room can make such a difference. I myself have a main light in my bedroom and a lamp. I tend to use the lamp post as I prefer the cosy feeling it gives.
SAY NO TO CLUTTER
For me when my space is messy or cluttered that usually means my mind is too. A clean space = a clean mind for me. It’s essential that things are put away and that spaces are clean and tidy. I also think its very therapeutic to throw away things you don’t need anymore. Another tip to help reduce anxiety or stress. Get rid of junk!
