For instance, bright red, neon green and fluorescent yellow would create the opposite effect to what you’re going for. Instead of that,

pick a colour scheme

that makes you feel peaceful and relaxed. Choose three main colours for your space. Don't go overboard with them as you'll feel overwhelmed not relaxed. Pick one colour for the walls, the other for larger elements, such as armchairs and sofa, and the third one for details that stick out.

Upgrade your living room 

No, you won't have to spend a fortune in your living room. You can do easy and simple things that will by far improve the way your living space looks and feels. The first thing you can do is create a more comfortable furniture layout. Depending on your preferences and room size, you can clutter your furniture in the middle or go for a more extravagant style.

On top of that, don’t forget to add comfort. Fluffy cushions, different patterns, duvet colours and soft rugs are the way to create a peaceful oasis you’ve always dreamed of. Keep in mind that too many things can cause chaos and clutter so, keep in simple but comfy.

Have you noticed that each house or apartment has its own smell? Whether it’s very pleasant or not, each home has a specific recognisable scent. Do you want to make your house smell amazing? Choose relaxing smells and impress your visitors.

What scent makes you relaxed? Is it lavender, freshly cut grass, lemon or ocean breeze? To

make your home smell nice

, pick up the dirty socks from the floor, take your shoes outside or store them in the cabinet and let the fresh air in regularly. You can also always add essential oils or natural ingredients that create the ideal soft smell you’re going for. 

Have nature's touch

Think about the times when you were most relaxed. It’s probably somewhere outdoors in the sun with the fresh air caressing your face and hair, while the soft grass tickles your feet and the tree canopies creating the perfect shade. 

You can recreate that magnificent atmosphere at your home. If you have a yard, plant enough trees, fresh grass and bushes if you'd like. Have a garden with flowers and tender them in your free time. In case you don't have a yard, you can create an oasis in your home or balcony. Bring in some house plants and create a fresh and comfortable area for everyone.
