Turn your living room into an oasis of calm with these quick hacks
The busiest area of the house is without a doubt, the living room. It is the common area used by everyone regardless of their age and often we tend to fill it with several artefacts. This results in a visually chaotic space.
To instil some calm in your living room, we suggest keeping the colour scheme neutral or even white. So, look at decorating with tans, beiges and creams. Keep the accents and showpieces to a minimum. Create a special zone where you can arrange and display these, instead of scattering them on separate surfaces throughout the living room.
Give your eyes visual relief from patterns by using solid coloured upholstery and furnishings. Incorporate prints in the most minimal ways, such as cushion covers or a small rug.

Curved arches, white washed walls and solid coloured sofas all contribute towards creating a soothing space. Minimal furniture and exclusion of patterns is one way in which you can achieve a calm living room.
Scented candles, potted plants and wooden accents if teamed correctly can help create a calmer living area. Limit the bursts of bright colours as it can tip the balance.
Work with neutral hued furniture in tans and beiges accentuated with white walls. If you wish to introduce colour in this space, cushions, rugs and fresh flowers can do the trick.
Natural light supported with soft, ambient lighting also helps bring in that zen-like aesthetic to the space.
