How to Find Your Calm Without Leaving Home
One of the easiest ways to transform your space is with wall art. It sets the tone for the entire space, and is so simple to do with just a bit of guidance.
If you haven't checked out our step by step guides, get them here.
The basics of using wall art to transform a room:
- Select a focal wall.
- Size for balance.
Select images that complement your existing color palette.
Select coordinating art pieces that continue the theme in other ways (without fighting for attention).
- Pull the dominant colors and shapes into the space with textiles and basic decor items like pillows, blankets and accessories
Artwork has a unique power to transport you anywhere. Sometimes where you need to go, is inside yourself. Getting lost in the expansive stillness and breathing without any agenda to go or do anything at all. Lingering and savoring each second. Its easy to forget how healing that is.
Are you ready to breathe again? Slice up some cucumbers and infuse your water, savoring it's sweet simplicity, put on a expansive playlist that allows your breath to take up space, and dive into the abyss.
Now take the look to the next level and bring the artwork into the room in subtle ways that evoke it's feeling and depth. Mimic patterns and textures and create balance by carrying the artwork through the room.
The key? Lines, gradients, layers and softness.
Decor Elements Checklist:
A few pillows and throw blankets.
Goal: Mimic the lines with texture and pull the colors and across the space.
A couple classic textures and shapes.
Think: Gradients and soft streaks, lines from texture allowing the shadow and touch to translate the the feeling of the artwork.
Think: Tall sea-grass or pampas grass that bring a touch of softness and vertical lines.
