After a long day, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of sinking into a peaceful home. Whether it be the glow of a candle or the solitude after a long day of talking with others, nothing beats home. Therefore, if you’re looking to sink into the comfort of your apartment even further, here are some ways to make your space feel extra peaceful.

Lean into Soft Lighting

Oftentimes, offices will be illuminated by bright, harsh lights to keep employees alert and focused. After a long day of work, it’s nice to shift into a more calming glow. Therefore, fill your space with light fixtures that embrace soft lighting. Lampshades do a great job of filtering light. This mushroom lamp from Etsy is adorable and lights up completely, emitting a calming glow that will transform any space.

Eliminate Clutter

Extra items will not only clutter a space but also the mind. Oftentimes, we leave a mess when we head out knowing we can clean it when we get home. However, there’s nothing quite like walking into an organized space after a chaotic day. Therefore, practice the KonMari method and eliminate anything in your living room and walkway that is not functional or sparks joy. Once you do, you will be greeted by objects that make you feel comforted rather than clutter.

Design Around Your Hobbies

What is that one hobby or activity that brings you peace? Whether it be yoga, writing, scrapbooking, or playing an instrument, design your space in a way that celebrates that thing. For example, put your guitar on display with wall hooks, use your favorite records as art, or set up a yoga corner complete with lush plants, candles, and create a basket for yoga blocks and your mat. This way, your apartment will inspire you to embrace the hobbies you love.
