6 Soothing Colours to Use at Home

When it comes to choosing colours for your interiors, you may have grey areas on which colours to use and which ones not to. Don't bother. We are here to help you make good decisions so that your home can be an oasis of calm and a soothing place to abide in.

And of course, we won't be suggesting you old-school white or shocking pink, but some muted and pastel colours that have an enormous impact on you, psychologically, emotionally and even physically as well as hues that make your space seem more expansive and cosier. All you have to do is know what kind of feeling you want in the room. If relaxation is your goal, these are definitely the colours to consider.

1. Sky Blue
When we are down in the dumps we always turn to nature and we subconsciously look for blue, like blue skies or beach or ocean on a beautiful day. A gorgeous, cool colour for your interiors is sky blue. Studies say that looking at the colour blue can produce chemicals in the body that promote a calming effect. Sky blue hue induces tranquillity, comfort and serenity, use this colour to add cooling and soothing effect in your rooms. It is also ideal for bathrooms, because it is associated with water. When used in bedrooms, it induces sleep by calming the mind. Peaceful, calm and gentle, blue has tremendous power to manage stress. It's a very soothing colour that helps calm your mind, slow down your heart rate, lower your blood pressure and reduce anxiety. This hue makes your room look bigger than its actual size. Soft, light shades of blue bring an airy, relaxing vibe to a room and also provide a calming atmosphere that is subtle and effortless. Whether on the walls or as an accent colour for furniture, the colour gives a very summery, fun vibe to the whole interior.



2. Butter Yellow
How can one think of summer and not think of yellow? The bright, happy colour can revamp any room with a splash of sunshine. There's something very positive about this colour that makes you feel lively and energetic the moment you lay your eyes on it. Yellow gives off energy and warmth. Plus, science suggests that this colour is bound to make you feel happy. A very light, soft pastel yellow can stir feelings of calmness. It doesn’t get much more relaxing than that! So if you want to jump start your day on an energetic note, keep a significant 'yellow thing' in a prominent place at home. A recent research found out that people in the yellow room appeared to be more active and conscious than people in other rooms. It exudes warmth, inspiration and joy. Besides sunlight and spirituality, yellow is also associated with wealth, as it is the colour of gold. Play up the colour in your living room by introducing yellow sofa or a vase filled with marigold and daffodils or any other accessory.  And since yellow pairs great with both lighter and darker tones, the colour balances a room, making it look cheerful and energetic.



3. Soft Green
The cosiness of a soft green is unparalleled. Paired with neutral bedding and decor, it's the epitome of stress relief. It makes perfect sense since this is the colour we associate with nature and the outdoors and it instantly makes us feel relaxed. Pretty much any shade of green will leave you feeling calm, but the lighter shades will have you feeling more chilled out than brighter ones. Green is a restful and a quiet colour. Because it symbolises nature, green attracts harmonious feelings that can diffuse anxiety and help us stay calm and refreshed. Being surrounded by them while inside your home, can elicit feelings of serenity and contentment. Green is a great hue for your bedroom, as it has both warm and cool elements to it. As the colour of the natural world, green represents freshness and abundance. It has soothing and comforting characteristics. The colour is proven to have a therapeutic effect and is suitable for rooms that focus on well-being and rest.



4. Soft Grey
The right shade of grey can actually be very calming and relaxing. It’s a perfect neutral colour, which means it works well with pretty much any colour or palette. It’s a great option for any room in your home as it makes it feel larger and airier. Many of us think of grey as a dull, boring and a bit depressing colour. But the truth is grey has a very soothing and cooling presence. Grey, when paired with blue or white elements, can create a relaxing atmosphere. For a lighter option, consider soft grey. Just a touch of grey, whether a sofa or an accent can bring about a very calming presence. Keep it soft and subtle. The best part? As a neutral shade, it works well with all of your furnishings you currently own. Its gracefulness and subtlety is perfect even for a dining room. In general, greys and neutrals with a hint of colour makes us feel welcome and comfortable in any given space.



5. Pastel Pink
A blush-painted room filled with plants and natural decor screams relaxation. It's the perfect space to sit back and get lost in a good book. However, a soft pastel pink can definitely bring an element of peace and calm to a space. When choosing the right shade of pink, think soft and light, since a brighter shade could leave you feeling overstimulated. Pastel pink is another colour that promotes tranquillity and peace. In fact, Feng Shui believes pink soothes various energies in a room and keeps them understated. Its peacefulness promotes balance of your energies. It's time to flush the stereotype down the drain that pink is a feminine colour. Use the right shade of pink and at the end of it, we're sure your rooms will look beautiful. Pink is an emotional colour and connotes sensitivity and a caring nature. Hence, it is ideal for bedrooms, as it gives a peaceful touch and makes it look lively.



6. Lilac
Choosing a lighter shade of purple, a soft tone like lilac can bring balance and inner peace. Choosing to imbibe this hue in your interiors can create a peaceful environment. In case you don't want to opt for all-lilac look, try placing a lilac cushion or add curtains in the living room. A muted lilac wall colour is a sophisticated option for a master bedroom. Lilac is thought to be stress-reducing, so this super soft one is sure to lend a calming aura.



Everyone has their own likes and dislikes, shades they consider beautiful, and shades they do not. While you may be tempted to paint your home in the hues you deem most attractive, you may go ahead, but understanding the psychological effects of a tone can help you achieve a specific mood, energy, and ambience in your interior spaces.

8 Ways To Bring Nature Into Your Space

In the interior design world, the colour green induces calmness, relaxation, freshness and elevates one's mood levels making them happy. Being humans, we have a bond with nature which is innate. The great outdoors are breathtaking that we want to bring them inside even if it means to add a bed of pebbles in our gardens or a terrarium to set the mind at ease after a hectic day. Here are a few tips if you wish to carry nature straight into your home.

1. Indoor Plants
There’s no better way to bring the outdoors in than with indoor plants. Get some easy maintenance plants like Split Leaf Philodendrons, Peace Lilies, Snake Plants, Fiddle Leaf Figs, Asparagus Fern, Cacti, Aloe Vera. Plants like rubber trees are easy to grow and maintain and get as tall as eight feet, adding significant style to your space. You don't need lots of shelf or floor space to start an indoor garden. Coffee tables, side tables, and room corners are all great places for putting plants. An important aspect to consider: Make sure your indoor plants have good drainage by providing them with a pot that has a hole in the bottom.



2. Deck the Balcony and Windows
If you have plenty of space on your balcony, you can introduce plants like Areca Palm, English Ivy, Dracaena, Spider Plant, Weeping Fig. The kind of plant you want to grow also depends on the amount of light the space gets. Plants that require low light are Philodendron, Devil’s Ivy, Dracaena and Peace Lily. Also, if you don't have huge terrace or balcony it is totally fine. All you need is a little space right inside your home for these beautiful and useful plants.
When it comes to windows, you can add small herbs and flower pots on your windowsill. Keep the windows open so that the fresh air keeps your room ventilated proficiently. It is also important that your plants receive an adequate amount of natural light. The perfect indoor/outdoor fusion comes to life with floor-to-ceiling windows, sliding glass doors and retractable doors that allow for a seamless fresh air living experience.





3. Grow Your Own Herb Garden
Growing your own fruits and vegetables in your kitchen is a great way to get fresh herbs for easy cooking. Plant low-maintenance herbs like lemongrass, cherry tomatoes, coriander, fennel, onion chives, mint, and parsley in a pot. A sunny windowsill is all you need for a mini herb garden in the kitchen or dining room. Before planting herbs, take into account what herbs you will need to most in cooking your daily meals or new recipes.



4. Hanging Plants
Hanging planters become a statement piece on their own. Think of these floating air purifiers as another chic way to add texture and height to a room. If you want a more permanent option, a wall-mounted planter is also a great use of wasted space and can easily be incorporated into wall art and decor.



5. Terrarium Plants, Cacti and Succulents
Terrarium are just like an aquarium for plants, but without water. The see-through glass container is instead filled with soil, small rocks and plants. These quirky pieces can be kept on centre tables, on a console table, sideboard, on the kitchen counter and so on. Caring for cacti is much easier than other houseplants. You can add the cacti on your home office table, dining table, study table or even on centre tables. Using cacti and succulents enhance the aesthetic value of a space.



6. Introduce Vertical Garden
Imagine a wall filled with lush creepers or money plants. Don't you think the wall will display an excellent art by nature? You can craft your own living wall by hanging up a variety of ceramic pots filled with your favourite plants. Whether you select moss, succulents, or herbs, it’s a fresh take on bringing greenery under your roof, and turning your living room into a refreshing paradise.



7. Use Colour Inspired By Nature
If you're not so keen on getting indoor plants, you can still bring the outdoors in by using outdoor inspired colours like earthly tones for soil, green tones for nature, blue tones for sky and yellow for the sun. Try adding murals, wallpapers, soft furnishings like a bedspread or curtains, fabric prints, throw pillows, bamboo plants, bonsai, cane swing chair and so on to enliven a room with a touch of nature.



Fabric Prints

8. Natural Elements
From dining to flooring, choose materials that have a natural look, like wooden flooring, wooden or marble dining table and chairs. All these materials are reminiscent of nature. And of course, there are brands that use Eco-friendly materials, opt for those.
