When you want a peaceful and zen atmosphere you need to get rid of everything that can be a distraction for your focus and serenity. Simplicity must be your moto and you must be able to breath harmony in a room. Minimalism can be very elegant but also boring and cold. Make sure that the minimalism you choose for you zen decoration matches well with your personality and makes you feel good, cosy and comfortable. That’s what a zen  house it’s suppose to be for you. So don’t hesitate to eliminate all the elements that are stressful or anti-relaxing.

  • Use soft and gentle colors for a zen atmosphere:

You will want to choose sober colors for the zen touch you are looking for. Soft, bright, neutral and timeless colors are the ones that a zen house needs to wear. You have to avoid strong colors that might bother the traquility you are seeking and that can be too much for you to see everyday. The colors you choose must transmit relax, so try with whites, beiges, light yellows, greys, blues and browns. You may want to choose natural colors that will connect your house with the Nature in a really zen way. Try not to mix every single color, choose 2 or 3 and combine them harmoniously.

  • Prefer simple wood furniture to get the zen touch:

Wood is always a good choice when you want to decorate your home with a zen style. It connects with Nature which is the main goal to get a relaxing environnement. We want to choose simpicity so put lineal furniture. Not too complicated structures, quite geometrical and with simple fabrics. Wood can also be applied to the ground: prefer parquet. You can also try with wool carpets in soft and bright colors. You can also get some ideas thanks to Ikea’s new catalogue.

  • Discreet decoration details are very zen stylish:

In a zen home you won’t find a lot of decorating items. Not many paintngs on the walls or sculptures. Keep it minimalistic and add just a few details, such as pictures you realy like and make you feel good. I suggest candles and scents that give the zen touch you are loking for and can be very nice and elegant. You can also add plants; here again we are recalling the Nature connection of the zen style. Choose bamboo plants which are really nice and easy to use for decoration and are linked to the zen way of life.

  • Try to get as much natural light as possible:

Something that really gives the relaxing touch that a zen home needs it’s the sunlight. Once again we are connecting with Nature and natural light puts you in a really good mood. I personnaly love to have light at home, it gives a warm and welcoming appearance to your home and makes it so cosy! So don’t be afraid to pull up your curtains and let the sun invade your zen house.
