Have you ever wanted to enter your home and find yourself in a tranquil, calming environment free of worries? Me too — but it's not always that easy to relax in our homes. Maybe your children have made a mess while you were away, or you've piled up some dishes and laundry because you're busy working all day. The stresses of daily life can get to us and make it harder to keep our home clean and organised, leaving us feeling anxious and unsatisfied. But what if it were easier to feel instantly calmed by your own home?
Using a calming colour palette is an easy way to curate a better home environment, so that by walking in the door, you'll be invited to relax and unwind. Cool colours like blues, purples, and greens can achieve this sort of effect. And by using a majority of calming colours, you'll find that you won't always need everything to be perfect in order to feel calm.
1. All about blue
Blue is the colour that comes to mind for most of us when we think of calm. Soothe your soul by adding pops of blue to your bedroom.
2. Golden glow
Warm colours can relax us too — think mustards, deep greens, and rustic reds or browns. These colours look very gentle in this bedroom, and it might be nice to dim the lights for ultimate relaxation.
3. Lovely earth tones
Earth tones are a go-to for a calming colour palette. Use vibrant greens, dull olives, and pale blues or greys for a lovely escape in your living room.
4. Neutral nest
Sometimes the most soothing tones are barely there colours like beige, grey, and white. Consider using neutral notes to keep a room from feeling too busy.
5. Moody luxe
Sometimes setting the mood and dimming the lights of a room can make for instant calm — do add pleasant shades of green and beige tones and let in natural light, but don't add too much artificial light. Luxe fabrics look rich and comfortable.
6. Pick pastels
Especially for children's rooms, pastels are a brilliant choice if you want to create a soothing environment. Pinks and muted greens go great together, but purples, blues, and yellows could look nice as well.
7. Seafoam blue
There's no better colour for a relaxing room than the colour of the sea meeting the beach. Seafoam is a great colour because it's a pale blue with reflections of grey or green. It looks great with almost any palette, but looks especially charming in this all-white room.
