Creating the Perfect Place to Live with Colour, Aroma, Light and Other Natural Elements
As our lives become increasingly stressful, we can all appreciate the role our homes can play in providing a calm, relaxing and re-energising haven. This timely book looks at how everyone can enhance these positive elements by using, among other things, colour, light and aroma, to ensure that our homes become peaceful sanctuaries where our energy is restored.
Each chapter deals with essential elements which include the use of aromatherapy, choosing colours which relax or revitalise, using natural materials and designing lighting for maximum therapeutic benefit. Improving the energy channels which flow through the home is important and the increasingly popular philosophy of feng shui, with its recommendations for harmonious arrangements of rooms and furniture, is also covered.
The emphasis throughout is on practical, accessible solutions, which will not mean redesigning your entire home. There are ideas for every budget and alternative approaches are suggested where the ideal solution might not be possible. Step-by-step instructions and informative tip boxes ensure that all the ideas are easy to apply.
