It’s very easy to feel stressed out and overwhelmed in today’s world. From the incredibly vitriolic discourse of social media to the general business of the soundscape when walking in urban or suburban environments. While many of us do feel relatively able to overcome the intensity of living from day to day, it can wear us down if we’re not careful. For this reason, it can be healthy to have a space where you can have therapeutic comfort and feel relaxed no matter what, or at least take a load off at the end of a busy workday. This way, you can enjoy a little refuge that helps you feel your best self, without worrying about having to conform to outer standards or keep up with the latest thing happening in the news or on Twitter.
Designing your interior for therapeutic comfort can be a great place to start with this. A non-threatening, comforting, and otherwise calming room can help your focus shift elsewhere, especially in the little things such as when cooking a light meal, reading a book, or spending some time enjoying a creative hobby.
In this post, we’ll discuss a few measures for arranging your space for optimal therapeutic comfort.
PLANTS + GREENERY
It’s important to have some greenery in your home space. No matter the style of your decor, even if you’re going for a relatively modernist aesthetic with clean lines and relative minimalism – greenery can always spruce up the place. This is because a beautiful indoor plant adds a sense of wellbeing and vitality to the room, rarely ever making a space seem ‘cluttered’ in any way. Greenery can also help cluttered or ‘busy’ rooms seem a little more vibrant and connected to the world outside. It does make a real difference.
A CAP ON DECORATIONS
It can be very easy to place everything you like and love around your room in order to make a space feel nurturing to you. But like a busy desk you have to work from, often it’s the more intensive resources around you that make you feel a little worn out mentally. This is why it’s good to limit just how much you’re willing to decorate in the space, or rather, how many places for stored items you have on show. Keeping things minimal with some creative use of storage, such as under the bed or in hanging storage baskets, can be a big boost and help you think more clearly.
NEUTRAL, COMPLIMENTARY COLOURS
It’s good to make sure that the colours used within a space work well together and don’t add too much visual clutter to the space. Intensive patterns, clashing colours, and rich colours that add more to the visual space can all make a room feel busier than it actually is. This can be a little intensive if you’re just trying to unwind, or have larger patterned decorations like tapestries or a feature wall. With neutral, complimentary or pastel colours, this can be achieved more easily, allowing you to add a uniform sense of style that works capably.
With this advice, you’re certain to design your interior for therapeutic comfort in the best way.
