Nature is known for having a calming effect in our mood. It creates a soothing and relaxing atmosphere, helping to balance the body and having a calming effect on your emotions, making you calm and comfortable. Having views to the outdoor can bring a little nature inside and help you feel a bigger connection with nature, thus creating a fresh and reenergizing ambience.

Color might be one the easiest tools to use for manipulating space and also a very intuitive one: bright colors bring an energizing effect and muted colors bring a soothing one. But as interesting as color is to manipulate the mood of a space, it can also be used to create a narrative, giving the space some deeper meaning. The more the meaning, the more interesting your ambience will be.

You want to feel that your ambience is working with you and supporting you through life. Make sure your ambience is functional and elegant.

Avoid seeking perfection. First, it will only make design your room even more stressful, as you will feel like nothing is right. Second, when a space feels too designed, then it isn’t homely. To find balance between the overdone and the underdone, subscribing to the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi of perfect imperfection might be the path to follow.
