If during the period of self-isolation you want to put things in order in life, we suggest starting with a small one – your own home.
“Happy is he who is happy at home.”Leo Tolstoy
Much depends on the comfort in the house: inner harmony, vitality and good mood. The house, the so-called “place of power”, requires care, care and knowledge of certain rules for harmonizing space.
Do not be afraid to fantasize and realize bold ideas. But before you paint the table with polka dots – check how it will look in the interior.
Let There Be Light
Much depends on proper lighting in the house. Proper distribution of light sources allows you to transform any interior and create that very cozy space. It is better to have several sources at once: a floor lamp, lamps, and a chandelier. During the day, to feel the “grand”, turn on a large chandelier, and in the evening, to prepare your mind for a good sound sleep, – a small floor lamp in the corner of the room. If we talk about the well-known Taoist practice of symbolic exploration of space – Feng Shui, you can pay attention to the following fact: the lamps on the walls made of natural materials allow us to remove negative energy from the apartment.
Pay attention also to what light your bulbs give. There are light bulbs with a yellow, “soft” light. And there is – with white and cold. Choose the light that pleases you. You can live your whole life with a bright cold light in the hallway and annoyed by its brightness every day. The very comfort will just help to create a “soft”, yellow light.
Living Room As A Center Of Power
The “center of power” of any home is the living room. Those who do not have an explicit living room usually combine their functions with other rooms.
The comfort of the living room gives pleasant upholstered furniture and a cozy table. In the living room-kitchen it is worth placing a round table, and next to put armchairs made of natural materials or pastel-colored sofas decorated with comfortable but small pillows. You can dress a table with burning candles, porcelain dishes, and marshmallows in it.
You can decorate a large living room with decorative cabinets with transparent doors – books (especially old and collection ones), small sculptures, or flowers are best placed there. Another technique for living room decor is to decorate it with a large mirror, which increases the space and reflects the beauty around. On the floor lay a fluffy carpet of discreet pastel colors.
In the living room, created by these rules, not only will be able to dinner with friends, but also productively – and most importantly, comfortably – a working day will pass.
Sleep My Joy, Sleep
The bedroom is the keeper of your sleep. How to dispose of square meters in this room is each individual choice. But there is, of course, must-have. A number of irreplaceable things make a bedroom a bedroom: a comfortable bed, a spacious wardrobe, a bedside table with books near the place to sleep, a cozy curtain, a mirror. All elements of the interior and decor in the bedroom should create an atmosphere of calm.
Everyone knows that the bedroom should be done in restrained, soft colors. White, vanilla, dull pink is the best choice for pleasant dreams. To sleep better, we suggest placing green plants on the window – they purify the air and absorb carbon dioxide, and simply delight the eye. The bed is best placed at the window and away from the door – so you will feel as comfortable as possible.
Which Things To Place In Bedroom
Perhaps in the bedroom, you will need a table for work and for personal care. You can use a small one – the main thing is that there is enough space for a laptop and for storing cosmetics.
Sometimes a rocking chair is put in the bedroom so that in the evenings you can comfortably sit down with a book or with your thoughts. Now, during self-isolation, this is especially true. A rocking chair can be replaced with more modern hanging options or a floor ottoman. The main thing is that nothing distracts you from sleep.
Dividing the room into functional sections helps make the placement of furniture and objects more organized. For zoning, you can use decorative screens, partitions, carpets, and sofas. You can use a bookcase or display cases for dishes. Do not forget about the colors. The furniture that you decide to use for zoning should not stand out much, but rather harmoniously complement your interior.
Everyone has different tastes and choices, when it comes to designing an apartment, but there are things which are universal and cozy so make sure you opt for those options too along with your personal choice.
