Zen For Now || Create a calm retreat at home with a cozy chair, soft rug & accessories

As you navigate through today’s often hectic, fast-paced world, do you dream of having your own personal retreat? Whether you have a large home with ample space or share a small apartment, everyone needs a spot to unwind that’s free of noise and distractions, even if it’s just a comfy chair next to a window – a little spot that’s truly yours. There are many ways you can create a soothing comfort zone, and it doesn’t have to be part of your bedroom, though a bedroom might be ideal. It can be an attic space, kitchen nook, basement bar or den. To invoke calm, design this space with a super-comfy chair, subdued colors, a plush rug, soft pillows, plants, a zen garden, fountains, candles, Buddha statues, inspiring art, personal collections, or anything else that helps you unwind in peace.

Your Chair || Most of us have a favorite chair. It’s usually an upholstered chair with plush back and seat cushions, perhaps a wing or club chair, a recliner that rocks or swivels, or even a power recliner with massage and heat features for ultimate relaxation. You know your chair is “your chair” once you’ve fallen asleep in it many times. You want it to be special both stylistically and comfort-wise. You want it to fit you like a glove. And, if it’s not a recliner, add an ottoman so you can put your feet up.

Your Rug + Pillows || Rugs and pillows that are soft to the touch are most likely to make you feel relaxed. A beautiful Moroccan rug in white or off-white with plush pile will do the trick. A Persian-style antique rug may feel just as wonderful. If you like more texture, walking on a sisal rug in your bare feet might be your preference. Soft toss pillows – and plenty of them – can likewise amplify your room’s cozy factor. If you don’t have space for multiples, a single lumbar back pillow placed on your favorite chair will feel great, too.

Your Personal Accessories || It’s pretty simple…surround yourself with things you love, and your chances of feeling blissful increase. Relax with a book by your favorite author, wear your most comfortable leisurewear, sip a cup of tea or glass of wine, write in your journal, draw or paint in silence, or listen to your go-to music as you contemplate an afternoon nap. If you have a favorite cozy throw, you can relax with it in your favorite chair.
