Are you looking for a peaceful space to escape the constant motion of the world around you? What if you didn’t need to escape to recharge, but simply had to come home. Instead of jet setting to a peaceful place, now is the perfect time to bring serenity into your space. It’s time to create space in your home that lifts you up, and let go of the elements in your home that are wearing you down. You deserve to come home to a space that invigorates and energizes you, readying you to take on another day. Here are some tips for creating space and tranquility in your home.
Declutter. It’s time to take a deep breath and leave the multi-tasking to your furniture. The first step to enhancing the tranquility in your home is to minimize clutter. Storage is essential to achieve this, but think outside of your traditional storage avenues. Instead, storage and style unite to offer beautiful space savers that will enhance the beauty of your home and decrease the stressful clutter.
For the bedroom, built-in under the bed storage is a must. Stanley Furniture’s upholstered storage bed is the perfect pairing of luxury and function. Not only will this bed solve your bedroom storage needs, it’s neutral colors are exactly what you need to add a sense of calm into the space.
For the living room, light colored storage ottomans will solve your clutter issues, while also adding a calming and comfortable element to the room. Take a look at our Stickley Living Room Bodega ottoman.
In the dining room, move away from the traditional glass dinnerware display cabinets, and instead, use a closed or frosted-glass cabinet. This Global Views cabinet will help you store your dinnerware out of sight, and out of mind.
Remove distractions. Technology is an energy drain, but removing technology completely from your home is easier said than done. Instead of focusing on eliminating distractions, find ways to remove them from your sight when it’s time to embrace quiet time and recharge.
In the living room or family room, choose entertainment centers that can fully close. This way, when it’s time to relax and unwind, you’ll be less tempted to be distracted by your television. This beautiful piece from Drexel Heritage is a stylish addition to any room.
Embrace nature. Plants, rocks, stones, and wood elements are all great additions to add a feeling of nature to any room. Bring the serenity of the outdoors into your space by minimizing bright and alarming decorations, and replacing them with earth elements.
For your walls, think a simple, nature-themed decorative piece like this Birds on a Branch piece. Not only does this wall hanging incorporate a natural elm branch, but it is also customizable.

Embrace the little things. Every room matters, and while you may not be ready to take on an entire house cleanse, there are small and simple ways to add the feeling of serenity to every space in your home. One piece of advice — small vases of fresh plants in EVERY room. Global Views Rocky Block vases are ideal for air plants, which take little effort to maintain, and are topping trend lists. These small pops of subtle décor will remind you to stay calm, and that your happy place is in fact, at home.
