Soothing and Serene Decor

Soothing and Serene Art Decor Ideas Video

Creating a soothing and serene environment is a task that many people, when decorating, desire to accomplish. A peaceful and tranquil home is a space that you can enjoy at the end of a long day out in the busy world, inspiring you to slow down and take some time for yourself. It should invoke a sense of calmness and allow a person to fully relax for a while. A room decorated with a soothing and serene feel in mind should use cool and mellow color tones to create a stress free environment. Paint colors and artwork decor should be neutral, relaxing and free flowing. The room should not be overcrowded or over stimulated with loud and flashy color tones or artwork. Think of a slow flowing stream in the middle of a forest, with the only noise being the sound of the water and the birds chirping. A soothing environment is crisp, clean, and decorated with classic and timeless pieces in neutral colors.

When you think of a bedroom you think of relaxation and peace. A bedroom is the ultimate escape from reality and the last room you see before resting your head at night. When at the end of a long, hard day and all you want to do is let it all go and forget about the rest of the world for a while. To create the desired soothing effect, the walls should be decorated in warm and inviting artwork and colors. Cool colors such as grey, light blue and green can be used to create a room that's simple yet sophisticated, encouraging you to relax and enjoy the little time you have left in your day.

In a white or cream colored room, a good choice for artwork might be Liz Jardine's "Champagne Blossoms". It's delicate and simple in design but also adds a touch of sophistication. A set of small black and white photos can also be hung over the bed to keep the design simple and inviting. Black frames can help this artwork to stand out on the wall and be just the touch of color you need. For a more blended look, natural wood or white frames can also be used.

Creating an office in which everyone feels at ease does not have to be a daunting task. You want to make your office feel warm and inviting to each and every person that walks in the door. This effect can be created by using mellow paint tones on the walls and keeping your decor welcoming and peaceful. Imagine an office painted in a warm beige tone with artwork that allows you to feel as if you are on a beach with the sand between your toes and the sunshine upon your face while the sailboats drift in the water. Diane Romanello's artwork titled "My Blue Heaven" is the perfect staple piece for your office walls.

When decorating a home office for your own use, abstract images with earth tones are a great way to bring the outdoors in, but in a less literal way. These images can help to make small spaces feel larger and make working from home less daunting. Having office walls that inspire you and make you feel like staying a little longer is a great way to be more productive and feel inspired by your home office space.

The bathroom is a place for one to catch their breath and sometimes, regain their calmness when having a challenging day. While it's not a room that people like to talk about, it is a place where we all spend a fair amount of time, so we'd might as well make it as pleasant as possible. When decorating your bathroom, you want to focus on cool, soothing decor and colors. A great example of a pacifying bathroom would be a water theme. Water tends to help one relax and unwind, even if only for a few moments. "Bleu 2" by Brian Leighton is a classic and simple statement piece that would establish a soothing theme for a bathroom. In either a white or natural wood frame, this piece is perfect for a bathroom in shades of beige, white or blues. If your space allows, you can use smaller images of seashells or sail boats to accompany this piece and finish off your water themed bathroom.

Green is another cool color that can be used when decorating a modern bathroom. Images of green leaves or trees work well on both beige or white bathroom walls. Use light green hand towels, soaps and mats to create a bathroom oasis that will welcome you to a hot bath at the end of a long day.
