6 Simple Hacks for Creating a Calm, Peaceful Home

Life is quite chaotic, so when you finally get home after a long day of work, you should be able to find a respite away from it all. Today, we’re sharing six simple hacks for creating a calm, peaceful home that you never want to leave.

1. Place fresh flowers in every room.

Fresh flowers add a touch of beauty and serenity to any location, so why not include them in every room of your home. It’s a cheap solution to adding a touch of calm. Consider buying one bouquet at the supermarket and divide it into small bunches. We’ve heard even the process of replacing the flowers every week becomes a calming ritual.

2. End your day on a soothing, luxurious note.

There are several things in life you should never skimp on, and your bedding is one of them. "When all else fails, splurge on high-end sheets," says interior designer Dee Murphy. "There are days when not even well-placed flowers or a helpful basket can help take the edge off. So head to bed with the certainty of softness from your nose to your toes, and promise yourself a well-rested tomorrow."

You can splurge on luxurious linen bedding without the markup by checking out our French linen duvet covers and linen sheets - The Olive Wren Collection. This collection is perfect for lovers of luxe because it brings a rustic aesthetic to modern living. Make sure you mix and match to build your dream bed and save 20% on luxury linen sets!

3. Create a calming playlist.

Turning on relaxing music whenever you begin to feel yourself become cranky is a great way to nurture your environment to become more calming. Create a calming playlist and upload it to your Amazon Alexa, so whenever you walk in the door from a long day of work you can easily say, “Alexa, play my Calming Playlist.”

4. Light your favorite candles.

5. Leave yourself soothing and peaceful reminders all over your home.

A super easy and FREE way to create a calm and peaceful home is by planting cues that help elicit and evoke a relaxed feeling at home. For example, you can write the word ‘breathe’ on a sticky note on your inspiration board or leave a seashell on the counter to remind you of your serene beach vacation. The options are limitless!

6. Leave your favorite PJs in clear sight and relax.

Nothing feels better than sliding into your favorite comfy PJs to spend the evening doing something that relaxes you. Maybe that’s a facemask or reading your favorite book? Whatever that may be, we recommend slipping on our feathery soft long sleeve tee and jogger set. It’s gorgeously designed with bamboo modal so that it’s thermoregulating and antimicrobial.
