Creating a Peace Room

Creating a Peace Room

The world can be kind of a lot sometimes. We need someplace we can go to unwind, relax, and tune out the negative so that we can recharge and center ourselves. Creating a dedicated peace room in your home is the perfect way to ensure you have a little sanctuary when you just can’t anymore, and need to take a moment. At WOVENBYRD, we believe that home decor can be a passport to happier places. Follow our advice to create the perfect peace room.

1. Create a Tranquil Color Palette

Since ancient times, the study and application of color to impact mood has been common across cultures. In modern times, we call this chromotherapy, and it is used across our culture in different ways. When it comes to creating feelings of relaxation and tranquility, cool tones are most effective. Blues, greens, and pastels with cool-undertones help lower blood pressure and produce a calming effect. Once you’ve determined your color palette, bring it to life on your walls with paint or wallpaper. If using wallpaper, stick to solids or round, geometric prints that aren’t too busy. When you search for home decor, use your palette as a guide to find harmonious pieces.

2. Find Your Right Light

When it comes to peace, lighting is key. Bring in warm, soft bulbs and include shaded lamps when you shop for home decor to diffuse the light to aid in relaxation. If you prefer a darker room for your Savasana, invest in curtains so you can control how much natural light comes in. Avoid using overhead lighting when you can. If you can’t help it, use a ceiling tapestry to help soften its glow.

3. Build a Scent Journey

Our sense of smell is a major part of our overall feelings. Like chromotherapy, aromatherapy goes back centuries, and there are many ways of bringing it into your peace room. Essential oil diffusers, candles, incense and dried plants are great ways to enhance your home decor while creating a harmonious and peaceful aromatic experience. Botanicals like lavender, rosemary, sage, and vetiver are time-honored relaxation scents. When building a scent journey, it’s important to test fragrances for quality and sensitivity before you commit, otherwise you could wind up with a headache - the exact opposite of what a peace room should bring.
