Natural colors and textures
While house plants are a great way to bring a calming mood to the living space, natural colors and textures can reinforce the effect in a powerful way.
“Softer neutrals with hints of color bring calm into an environment,” Suzanne Tick, creative director at Luum Textiles, told Forbes. “Woods, stone, natural fibers enliven the senses. Tactility plays an important role as well – we all want softness – but a feeling of safety and cleanability, not sterility, is also important. Natural fibers like wool offer softness, while using renewable resources that can be sanitized as needed.”
