More often than not, your home is the place you return to after a long, hard, stressful day, and it’s important that you feel utterly relaxed there. So for all those who’re searching for that elusive tranquil and serene abode, today we’ll be sharing 5 simple tricks and tips to design the most relaxing interior designs ever! Let’s take a look:
1. Beachy blue and sand
The sound of wave crashing, the feeling of sand crunching underfoot and a cool breeze playing with your hair is one of the most universal definitions of serenity you’ll ever find. This is why you can go for an elegant beach themed interior design to emulate a relaxing aura in your interiors. The sand-like media wall and sponge-painted blue accent wall in this image are the perfect way to start this venture.
2. Lots of white
The basic idea is to stay away from as much visual clutter as you’re able to in order to evoke a truly relaxing aura. When you’ve got the beach as your backdrop, you need little else to formulate a foreground. So aside from the essential furniture, try to avoid any frou-frou accoutrements while decorating your spaces.
3. Mood lighting
Whether you’re opting for a summer or a winter beach-side, the sun is always there beating loudly above the water. So if you want to go full-scale authentic, you can opt for some creative mood lighting to enhance the tranquil mood. You can do this through elegant light fixtures that emit a gold, incandescent glow and get reflected on the white surfaces of your design.
4. Backlit blues
The halo if blue that has been artfully created around this platform bed is a great way to bring the beauty of the beach inside your cityscape bedroom. It makes the bed seem as if it’s floating inside a vast expanse of sea and all your worries have been left behind within the clutter of the city – partial chromatherapy at its best.
5. Backlit shades
As far as window coverings go, we suggest going for something that could be elegantly backlit – maybe roller blinds or honeycomb shades. Total black-out shades will take away the whimsy of your beach theme, even when the rest of your design looks stunning.
