What makes a room rejuvenating? Today we share a collection of images that will hopefully serve as design inspiration as you plan a space that encourages you to relax, refresh, and even escape! There’s nothing wrong with a little bit of escapism at home, is there?! As we searched for interiors that inspired serenity and resort-style relaxation, a few common themes emerged. All of the interiors below are uncluttered. Not to mention, they foster a connection with nature and include decadent touches. Read on to discover other standout features that you can adapt to your space…

The Indoor-Outdoor Connection

There’s nothing like a room with a view! This Hong Kong living area overlooks a tranquil backyard with lush greenery. If you have a room with a view of an outdoor space, take some time to make your yard, patio or balcony extra special.  You’ll thank yourself as you admire it from your sofa. [from S.I.D. Ltd.]

Here’s another interior with a seamless blend between the indoors and out. This Sydney home features modern seating in both the living room and the yard! Investing in some quality patio furniture can elevate the feel of your interior when you overlook an outdoor space.

Even if you don’t have a view of a gorgeous outdoor space, you can bring nature indoors with greenery, such as a large palm. It instantly evokes the feel of a vacation and adds life to your space. [from Lonny]

Clean-lined, Comfy Seating

Many of our favorite relaxing spaces feature an abundance of seating, often with comfy pillows that serve a practical purpose rather than crowd the room. The use of lime green below is unforgettable. Try incorporating cushions into your interior, and go for repetition, either in color or style. The uniformity that results creates a clean look that is quite serene.

In this colorful Turks and Caicos living area, we see pillows in summery shades such as blue and coral. Again, note the absence of frills, as well as the modern forms and abundance of color and comfy accents. [from Lisa Kanning Interior Design]

What makes this next bedroom grand? How about sizable artwork, a platform bed and the softest of colors (such as the icy gray of the rug from Pretty Clever Decor). [from Habachy Designs]

An elaborate bed can also be grand, especially if the bedding is kept simple and crisp. Another standout feature? Tropical wallpaper that creates a breezy vibe. This particular selection is from Cole & Son. [from Design-OD]

Don’t forget the importance of minimizing clutter in the powder room. If you have grooming products on display, try transferring them to attractive containers, or only display the loveliest of items. Below we see neatly folded towels and coordinating accents in shades of blue. [from Lonny]
