On Beautiful Souls Life we support an ongoing effort to surround ourselves with artisanal touches and other things that enhance our lives and naturally make us feel better about ourselves. So, it’s so important to take our surroundings seriously.
Creating an personal environment that promotes relaxation and stress relief is essential to maintaining a healthy mindset. In fact, our surroundings have a profound impact on our mental and emotional state, which is why we must design our spaces with care and intention. By using relaxing decors such as soft lighting, calming scents, and cozy textures, we can create an atmosphere that soothes the soul and alleviates stress.
3 Ways to Add Artisanal Touches to Your Home
Designing an intimate environment is a form of self-care that requires thoughtful consideration of our individual needs and preferences. Our spaces should reflect our personalities, passions, and interests, as well as provide a relief from the outside world. Whether it’s a cozy reading nook or a luxurious bedroom, we must tailor our interior design to support our well-being and enhance our lives in meaningful ways.
Using artisanal touches is another way to elevate our spaces and create a sense of luxury and refinement. Handcrafted items such as pottery, artwork, and textiles add a personal and unique touch that can’t be replicated by mass-produced decor. Artisanal pieces also have an inherent beauty and authenticity that can inspire and uplift our spirits.
By using relaxing decors and artisanal touches, we create spaces that promote relaxation, soothe the soul, and enhance our lives in meaningful ways. Remember, our spaces are a reflection of who we are, and they play a vital role in supporting our mental and emotional health. So take the time to design an intimate environment that is uniquely you and watch as it transforms your life.
1. The Best Color Scheme for You
First, there is the consideration of the color scheme that is the most relaxing for you. Select soothing colors but also add your own bright culture in comfortable pops in the way of wall hangings or other accents.
However, if you’re like me, you might stare at color schemes for hours and absolutely love everything you see but never make a choice. Unfortunately, that sometimes adds to our stress level so start with a color scheme that is familiar and easy to follow. After all, no one ever said color schemes have to be complicated to be effective!
If that happens to you, I recommend that you simply go to Color Hunter and upload an image that you love and see the resulting color pallet that it automatically generates for you. I love using Color Hunter and I think you will as well. Below is an example of colors of an image I just uploaded to demonstrate this for you.
To this! So easy!
2. The Things That Make You Feel Good
Next, the art of Feng Shui tells you that it’s important to surround yourself with the things that bring you joy. Interestingly, this differs from person to person, just like snowflakes. For instance, it might be the neatly ironed and folded handkerchiefs that belonged to your grandmother.
For others, posters from a favorite movie that portrays your culture out loud and brings you good feelings when it’s hanging on your wall. Then again, it could be a crystal candle holder that holds memories of past events with family and friends. Then, whatever it is, bring it out and work it into your design.
3. Surround Yourself with Comfort
Work your artisanal touches into your surroundings with soft touches like large cushions with artistic prints or throws with natural woven textures. Can’t you just imagine yourself all wrapped up in comfort with these items at hand?
Also, the fabulous thing about cushions and throws is that they complement the living room, playroom, family room, and bedroom. Moreover, if you’ve got a low-level Japanese-style dining table, you’re going to need cushions for that.
