How To Turn Your Home Into A Zen Sanctuary

by Synjini Nandi

Simply put: Our homes are a sanctuary; a place where we can relax and unwind after a whirlwind of a day. However, sometimes it’s easy for our house to feel chaotic—especially when there’s a build-up of clutter, negative energies, or a general lack of disarray. Moreover, having spent a majority of our time inside the house (Re: lockdown), sprucing up our space and giving it an extra dose of TLC seems like a great idea. One of the best ways to do this though: following the Japanese principle of Zen aesthetics and turning our home into a calm oasis that reflects balance and harmony; think oodles of natural elements, cool neutral hues, minimalistic décor accents, mood boosting fragrances, cosy nooks etc. that will evoke feelings of serenity.
Ahead, we have together a few ideas, plus a curation of products that will help transform your space into a zen sanctuary.
