Nature as a master word

By definition, Zen decoration is inspired by nature. So, what better than to invite plants to honor him? Although they are not always recommended in a room, some varieties have soothing, depolluting and even beneficial properties for sleep. Remember to have one or two and air space regularly.

And if you do not have a green thumb, the dried flowers are also good for giving a zen side to your sleeping area. Especially, they are very trendy right now! Beyond plants, the zen spirit decoration is also reflected in the use of natural materials. Wicker wicker basket, bedding in wool or cotton, bamboo bed frame, wooden furniture … Natural fibers have their place in a zen room!

Furniture but not too much

The bed being the central element of a room, be sure to look after its location. In the practice of Feng Shui, it is recommended to place it against a wall (heads glued to the wall) and to arrange it as far as possible from the access door to the room. For the rest of the furniture, you must arrange your room in a refined way. Indeed, an overloaded room can never give the impression of being zen! Free movement is essential, avoid cluttering your room with furniture too bulky and prefer furniture with soft and minimalist forms.

For the rest, no need to clog the space of trinkets of all kinds. One word of order: settle for the minimum. And it is not the Japanese trend of wabi-sabi that will say the opposite … So, inspire yourself and look for beauty in simplicity!

Cozy linens

If the decoration of a zen room does not needless futility, it can not, however, do without comfort. Collect cozy pillows for maximum comfort, opt for a padded or padded headboard, lay out a soft mat on each side of the bed, and do not forget a comforting bathrobe or bedstead to wrap yourself in the out of bed. And all the ingredients will be there to make your Zen room a place to relax and unwind. As for bed linen, once again, natural materials are in order! Dress your bed with a duvet cover or flannel sheets during the winter, cotton or linen in the summer.

Soft, subdued light

Finally, a Zen room must heal its lighting. Forget the direct and aggressive lights and prefer several light sources with soft lighting. It is easy to imagine lanterns to highlight certain corners of the room, a light string above the bed and / or on a shelf and two extra lights on the bedside tables. And to perfect it all, do not forget to light some scented candles … Zen atmosphere guaranteed!
