Mindfulness is a state of calmness, being grounded, and being aware of your existence in the present moment. An old world practice arising from Buddhist and Hindu principles, mindfulness is a great part of the wellness culture that rules the modern society. Mindful decor is inspired from earthing, grounding woods and simple lines, natural fabrics and clean simple lines favoring uncluttered spaces.
Mindful decor begins with a simple principle that everything serves a purpose. Home decor that connects you to your roots or contributes to your home in a positive way. Handmade and rustic wood credenzas brings in good energy, and antique chakra carved cabinets draw in the energy of the sun.
Consider the function of the distressed teal credenza which serves as a statement media chest, the blue medley of colors and the grounding nails that take out the harmful ions and ground them to earth through the solid wood. Not only is it practical, and gives you a lot of storage but is handmade from old reclaimed woods that are reused and repurposed into beautiful furniture.
Reclaimed woods and handmade furniture cultivate a mindful space, and balance your home, are functional and bringing good energy. Being mindful of your inner self you meditate on your daily chores, and having a dedicated meditation space will help clear the mind and give you focus to know your inner self.
A stunning wall sculpture of Buddha carved in rustic natural white ottomans woods or a colorful Krishna fluting, playing the music of life and giving you direction as you look into his peaceful serene eyes, the carvings call upon you to be mindful in your thoughts and actions. Cascading water in the nearby fountain with crystals scattered add to your serene mood.
Add color by thinking of your favorite place. The dark green of a lush rain forest or the endless blues of the ocean, the stunning bright sunlight or the glowing embers of a bonfire, colors that bond with your aura and permeate your being. Find these colors in the tribal spice chest with mirrors that is perfect for the hall or as an entry table. A mindful home sees beauty in every corner of the house. Soft and breezy sari curtains that allow sunlight into your home are playful and accent the colors of the spice chest. A large chai table made from old doors which still has remnants of old paint, patchwork sari pillows scattered around on the floor and a handloom cotton throw! Picture perfect and nourishing decor. Be mindful in thought and action!
