Mostof us clutter our homes with unnecessary items, yet Zen design infers a moreminimalist approach: doing more with less. If you need a respite from your busylife, consider transforming your space into a personal refuge.
First visualize a calm,clear, wide-open space. You can create these qualities in your home aswell as your mind. In fact, creating them in your home will reinforce them inyour mind.
Tryreducing the color palette to calm, 'quiet' colors
(like neutrals, water and earth tones).
Gradually take away all clutter, including: smalldecorative items (visually, they are clutter as well); things you don’t oftenuse, things with bold distracting patterns.
Thenstart clearing the walls and floors, again only keep what is practical andnecessary.
You could, for example, start with one area, even a very small one; if you have a home office, it could just be a part of your desk.
Decide that nothing is going to disturb this free, clear, calm space. No decoration, no things, nothing.
Increase your conscious awareness by reducing the décor in your home. The less there is to stimulate your senses, the more you will notice what is there, and how it affects you, all occupants and guests.
Zen interior designreally isn't about sparse rooms; it's about creating true well-being, for bodyand soul. Is your home pleasing to your senses? Is it comfortable? Is itwelcoming? Does it create a peaceful, balanced atmosphere?
Designing with a Zenapproach will turn your home into a sanctuary, a place of soothing tranquilityand respite from the rush and busyness of the outside world.
