Whether you realize it or not, there’s a certain vibe that greets you when you walk into your home. Your experiences there, combined with the sounds, smells, and colors create feelings that can linger long afterward. You want to create a home that inspires warm, loving, playful, and peaceful experiences. A place where your love can grow; a safe space to explore. A place you and your love will want to spend time together.
Here are a few simple tips to create a calm and peaceful home:
Sight - Have something pleasing to look at nearby. It might be a fresh bouquet, a colorful print, a found object, or a piece of art.
Smell - Smell is a powerful memory trigger. Adding a lush, pleasing aroma to your home can be a sensual way to create the right mood. A scented candle that reminds her of a favorite vacation, a few drops of essential oil in a diffuser, or fresh flowers can fill your home with beautiful, natural aromas.
Sound - There are lots of great nature sound playlists available if that’s your jam, but classical music or other genres might be just the thing to spark creativity, playfulness, or romance.
Touch - Play with a balance of textures in your home. Balance out the smooth, silky surface of your sheets with a velvety blanket. Place a soft shag rug on the floor. Pull some warm towels from the dryer after a shower.
Taste - Flavoring her water with a slice of citrus, sipping velvety wine and nibbling on dark chocolate, or cooking new recipes together might be just the thing to keep your creative juices flowing!
The home is a place where you rest and rejuvenate, but it’s also a place to be creative and have fun. Make it a place that inspires you and your sweetheart. The more peaceful and inspired you are, the easier it is to spark romance. Finding ways to zen your home doesn’t have to be expensive or time consuming. And the rewards will be well worth the effort to your heart, your soul, and your love life.
