The stresses of today’s world are inescapable. Most of us live our lives constantly on the go. During our down time at home, it’s important to have the opportunity to relax and enjoy a pleasant surrounding. One way to create a relaxing space is through adding Zen to your home. Zen décor is clean yet calming; modern yet traditional.
You can help create this atmosphere by adding items to your home such as wooden carvings, Buddha sculptures, oriental pillows, fountains and natural objects, such as stones.
Buddha statues are a common element to increase the Zen in one’s home. Buddha have been used in the Far East for thousands of years to add beauty and tranquility to home environments.
Oriental pillows add both a visual and a physical element of comfort. They are the perfect way to add colour and decoration to any Zen room. You can also do this by incorporating wooden carvings such as elephants or Buddha hands.
Fountains are a great way to capture the natural spirit of the earth in your home; they are both beautiful to look at and create a calming feeling and an esthetic appeal.
