Through concentrating, relaxing, and calming your mind, meditation is a great way to do just that. The comforting surroundings and thoughtful design details that you can achieve in your home makeover without having to go to a studio can improve your meditation practice. Here are tips for meditation places that will get you peace of mind in no time.
Sometimes less is more when it comes to a relaxing room, proved through the looks on the website of minimalist interior stylists. Include simple cushions, a small stool, and textured area rug for your own space, and you’re ready to meditate in space that’s no-frills, yet chic.
Follow Your Personality
To feel good in a meditation room, he has to feel like you, right? You can get really relaxed when you’ve woven pieces like a happy Buddha statue, a soft throw blanket, and a vibrant rug that’s what Kelly Anderson, coach of space and lifestyle design, did here. She has also inventively turned a spot at the top of the stairs into a corner of meditation and shares her tips in a blog post.
Paint Soft Colors
While bright, bold colors can be fun, there’s something that’s oh-so – so-soothing about whispering, pastel hues. While your eyes are likely to be closed as you meditate, it is important to feel comfortable in space as soon as you sit down. No doubt, Sofia of @sofiaparapluie is feeling at ease when she is meditating in this lovely corner of her house. Keep your eyes out when designing your own space, for pastel meditation cushions and other accessories.
Taking a meditation practice outside, where you can soak up the sounds of the birds chirping and the wind blowing through the trees, makes perfect sense. Whatever you like, you can build it (just be sure to include waterproof, outdoor-friendly parts and materials), or you can go all-out for an afternoon of relaxing with a space filled with dreamy textiles, candles and antique items, like this one crafted by Sian of Sian Loves.
Let the Light In
Having some sunlight on your skin and a breeze coming in through a window can feel good when you’re meditating. Try to place it next to a window when creating your meditation corner that is what Alexandra of To Vogue or Bust did in her own home. Using a faux fur rug, woven pouf, a small ladder and meditation must-haves, she styled this corner like essential oil, and a diffuser.
