How to Achieve Health and Happiness through Interior Design


The human mind is an incredibly powerful, insightful and opulent component within our biological composition. Often neglected, its nurturing takes a back seat to the everyday distraction which misleadingly seem of more importance. Our mental state is a crucial factor in the mechanism of our movements, actions and the way in which we approach life’s obstacles. There are many ways in which our mental agility can be altered to determine conflicting outcomes of neutral situations. When our minds equilibrium is affected, so are our actions. It’s therefore within our best interest to invest the time into protecting and stimulating our brains at all times to ensure that they are healthy and elevated, regardless of the negativity that may surround us.

Many factors contribute to our health, happiness and emotional wellbeing. From the types of food we consume, amount of exercise we practice to the types of people we choose to surround ourselves with. All of which contribute to our own personal journey of contentment. However, one of the fundamental and often underestimated factors, is the environment we choose to situate ourselves in.

Scientifically proven, our living space can influence our emotional state of mind in both a negative and positive manner. Interior design can have the power to systematically improve our moods through clever use of colours, fabrics and furniture feng shui. Tranquil shades, stimulating surface textures and resourceful organisational units can all contribute to the make up of a healthier habitat, resulting in a happier and more positive you.

When it comes to colour, choosing the correct kind is essential to achieving a positive ambiance within a home. Colours visually stimulate us causing brain cells to react and triggering a torrent of unleashed emotions. Not only do different colours impact our feelings, but the amount of exposure we have to certain shades can also affect the chemical imbalance within our brains. Incorporating colour into a living space should be done with precision and attention to detail. Avoid over indulgence of certain shades and misuse of garish tones as they can hinder the potential of a prosperous space.

Tranquillity can be achieved through clever use of soft serene shades. Incorporating pastel tones such as blues, greens and lilacs into a contemporary living space can result in a calmer and more relaxed environment. This clever colour scheme can be transitioned throughout the home, although it is particularly recommended within areas intended for recreational rest.

Ideal for the bedroom, Zanotta’s Hotel Royal bed incorporates the perfect amount of colour within its delicate contemporary composition. Contrasted against neutral tones, this pleasing creation is a perfect piece of furniture to integrate into contemporary bedroom settings in order to achieve sublime serenity.

When it comes to seating systems relaxation is key. Husk’s designer cushion colours combined with comfort, allows for the ultimate relaxation experience. Husks soft green finish is the ideal tone to help channel stress, unwind and immerse ones self in a serene state of mind.

Not only can colour aid calm and tranquillity, but it can also have the power to stimulate energy and excitement. Like most beautiful things, vibrant colours can trigger a surge of thrill and enthusiasm.
