How You Can Create a Calming  Space at Home

By Temple & Webster Head of Styling Vanessa Colyer Tay and Stylist Allira Bell

 

With more of us spending time at home, and the lines between work-life and home-life becoming as faded as James Dean’s jeans in Rebel Without a Cause, it’s important to have a space where you can automatically switch off. 

Home is your safe haven, and if you have a favourite nook, why not use some of the following inspiration to turn it into something more?

 

1. Freshen up with greenery

‘Green tones are naturally soothing, and faux plants are an easy way to create instant calm. Designed to be perfectly imperfect, artificial greenery mirrors real plants, but conveniently doesn’t require upkeep.

When curating your collection, mix leaf shape and vary plant height to inject tactility and abundance into your home.’ – Allira Bell

Adding indoor plants instantly freshens up the space

2. Create a Wellness Area

According to Akira, “when it comes to zen spaces, details matter. Creating a peaceful retreat is simple with small additions which awaken your senses of sight, smell and touch.

For sight, shaded lamps generate warm glowy lighting, while sheer curtains soften direct sunlight.

For smell, aromatic diffusers and soy candles naturally enhance air quality.

For touch, chunky cotton throws add cosiness, while plush woollen rugs make for comfortable yoga surfaces.”

3. Use Quiet & Confident Material

‘Use materials that are bold in their raw appearance. Include timbers that hero their grain, ceramics that are earthy, and pieces that aren’t overly decorative.’ – Vanessa Colyer Tay

Quiet, yet confident!

 

4. Allow the eye to rest

‘Stay mindful of your room’s overall ambience. Steer clear of any colours or decor that command attention.

Instead, work with low contrasting tones, light colours, and natural materials.’ – Vanessa Colyer Tay

Keep uncluttered so the eye has somewhere to rest
