Wellness and Decorating
Our homes can have a major impact on our health in the subtlest of ways. Abi shares her tips on ensuring your space promotes wellness and positivity.
If lighting is bright, paint colours garish or if our homes are full to the brim with clutter it’s not going to make us feel relaxed and at peace.
Create a Sense of Calm
Choosing calming and restorative paint colours, adding in some uplifting and energising accents can all promote creativity, balance and a general sense of well-being.
Add in some natural accents and a beautiful mix of materiality.
Wood, papier mache, stone, marble, basketry, wool and silk are all tactile elements that promote a grounding sense of calm and will make you want to hunker down and linger longer in each and every room.
Create a cosy nook
In every room, Abi carves out a relaxing nook that’s reserved for reading, a comfortable, safe place to flick through a magazine, listen to a pod cost and reset.
Enjoy the little moments.
The sound of soup puttering away on the stove or the flickering, flattering flames of candle light, or the way the light bounces and reflects off a mirror.
Savouring such moments awakens our senses, reduces stress and actually makes us enjoy life more.
