Home has become our oasis and the importance of creating definitive spaces there to rest, relax, work and play, is vital, now more than ever. All our businesses have been affected by COVID-19, and now we are beginning to move forward, yet home is still where we are spending most of our time, I am not sure that is going to change. So how can you imagine a space through design that will bring joy and lift the spirits? Here are a few pointers.
Access to nature and outdoor living is essential. It is an even more important feature as a result of the pandemic. Rooms that provide indoor/outdoor access encourages a connection to nature and the outdoors which in itself is relaxing and healing to the senses.
It’s important that specific rooms provide flexibility while also maximizing space so that it can serve a variety of purposes. Customize your home in a way that works for you. Ensure the design of the home creates distinct areas of activity in the house so that you can distinguish work productivity from the relaxation that comes with preparing dinner, reading, or playing with the kids. Also adding artwork, figurines, books or objects that elicit nostalgia or spark the imagination are a great way to elevate the mood of a space and keep our spirits up.
Luxury isn’t just about having the highest caliber design elements in a home. What can’t be bought is the sense of warmth, creative expression and freedom an interior can bring to you as the homeowner.
Let your home be a true reflection of your style -bringing in the elements that make you comfortable and give you a sense of calm. Don’t settle. Create your vision for the type of home design that brings you joy. Nothing is better!
