Do you ever feel like you need to just get away from the stress in your life? If you want to pack up and find a relaxing place to get away, you don’t need to leave home to find it. You can create your own relaxing space without the expensive vacations.

The first step is to choose a space; it could be inside or outside. If you're drawn to the outdoors, you should consider an interesting and relaxing feature incorporating fire or water. Bring in some comfortable lounge furniture to kick up your feet and unwind at the end of the day.

For an indoor space, keep in mind that comfort is the ultimate luxury. Choose a relaxing color palette. Soft blues, soft neutrals, crisp white, and cool pastels are a few recommendations. Find a color that makes you feel good. 

You can set the mood of the space with various forms of lighting; you shouldn’t have to solely rely on overhead lighting. Mix it up with different lamps. Keeping comfort in mind, make sure you have a comfortable place to sit. Bring in plush pillows and throws, and incorporate soft rugs. Whatever space you chose, it should feel comfortable and like a place you can relax and unwind.
