Sometimes you just want to walk into a room and feel instantly calm and relaxed. By the looks of these room, that is exactly how I am feeling:
I don't know if it's the clean look, the elegant drapes, or the cozy chair, but this room is definitely calming to me.
I would say most bathrooms are difficult to make serene since it tends to get a cold hard feeling when you walk in. They can be beautiful and stunning but serene is a tough one to master.
I love the use of neutrals in a bedroom. It's pleasing to the eye and calming to the heart. I also love when there isn't that fear of playing with the darker neutrals in a bedroom. It is a place where you sleep, so darker colors are welcoming here.
My tip for a serene living area is to go with the mindset of simple. The less clutter, the less distraction, the more serene and comfortable.
Who wouldn't want a calming bedroom for the baby? I can imagine this room with a cozy chair for rocking a little one to sleep.
What makes you feel serene?
