Soft Touches to Creating a Relaxing Room

Creating a relaxing room starts with creating a feeling of calm. Soft touches such as pillows and a throw will warm up a leather chair. In other words, you want to add a feeling of comfort. As an example, having a few plants in a room will also bring a feeling of nature to your home. The biophilia hypothesis also called BET, suggests that humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life.

Neutral Colors

The eye is calmed by neutral colors. Don’t get me wrong I love colorful interiors. But there is something very soothing and relaxing about neutral colors. As an example, with a gray, beige, white and cream color scheme, maybe just adding a bit of black. Your eyes have a chance to rest.

Textures Create a Relaxing Room

The textures you bring into a room will help with creating a relaxing feeling. Feeling the soft texture of the sofa in contrast to a few nubby pillows, and a hand-crocheted throw bring a feeling of comfort. And finally, as an interior design professional. I try to add some elements to the room the person or family all relate to. It may a gallery wall of family photos or a set of comfortable chairs for an afternoon of reading or conversation.
