Anxiety doesn't come with an off switch. On top of that, the recent fluctuating regulation changes to curb the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic are an additional stress factor that leads to a further decline in positivity.
That being said, there are several ways to help relieve stress and channel calm in your personal space—starting from your bedroom. A safe haven where you can rest and recuperate, bedrooms are intimate spaces that are centered around individual tastes. There’s nothing quite like the importance that we place on our bedrooms, which is why crafting a rejuvenating space where you can express your personality is essential. With the proper decor and luxe accents, you can create a serene personal sanctuary for you to relax and unwind.
1. A monochromatic colour scheme
Colour plays a huge significance in design, particularly when it comes to evoking certain emotions. Bold tones like red hues deliver energy and vibrance, but the aggressive shade can also increases our heart rates and ramp up stress levels. Opt for a natural and uniform palette with a neutral shade such as white; the serene colour can create an ethereal setting within your bedroom.
If you’re looking for a different neutral, try a cool grey hue. The versatile colour lends a sense of peace that makes it especially appealing for bedrooms. Calming hues such as shades of blue and green have also been proven to reduce blood pressure and significantly reduce distress.
