How To Make Your Home Interiors More Mindful

There’s no doubt about it. Most of us have spent more time at home over the last two years than we ever have before. Now, it’s more important than it’s ever been to ensure our interiors are calming, encouraging spaces, assisting us with the process of being mindful at home.

So what exactly is mindfulness all about?

Mindfulness is the act of being acutely aware of where we are, what we’re doing and how we’re feeling. It’s a type of meditation that encourages you to acknowledge this moment by moment awareness with an attitude of kindness and tranquility.

To appropriately practice this mindful behavior, it’s vital that our surroundings soothe us and create a calming atmosphere.

Check out our five favorite tips for achieving mindful interior design. 

1) Don’t underestimate the value of deploying your sense of smell to help create a tranquil space. Candles and diffusers dotted around your kitchen, bedroom or living area in your favourite aromas can go a long way to creating a sense of peace. We particularly favour lavender and vanilla-based scents.

2) Encourage a connection to nature and the outside world to stay firmly calm and grounded. The best way to incorporate this at home is to bring in some greenery and use earthy, reassuring hues within your home decor.

3) Minimal, uncluttered aesthetic styles are the best for ensuring a relaxing interior. Choose your accessories and display pieces carefully, only showcasing items that truly spark joy.

4) Have you ever heard of Feng Shui? The placement of your furniture can play a big part in the flow of energy between rooms (and your mood overall as a result)

5) Avoid harsh lighting where possible and instead opt for as much natural light as you can muster and where that’s not an option, choose soft, warm lighting to add to the overall ambience of your room.
