Base colours

We want our house to be calm, cosy and homey. As we'll add colour with our details later, we want our base palette to be simple and clean.

Most walls: White

Looking clean! Now, let's ground ourselves by choosing wood for our floors!

If you don't like wooden floors, a lighter grey floor also looks smooth. You can add wood by hanging it!

Or, if you can't lay a wooden floor, because you e.g. need to work with tiles, you can use rugs to ground the space. Rugs are also amazing to improve your space's acoustics - good to work on with a tile floor too. We'll touch on that later as well.

Now, the details. Doorposts, window frames, etc. We can choose to go calm with these and use a light colour, but let's make them black to add some character and get that modern look.

Green - Plants everywhere!

Let's fill this house up with life! We are nature, and being amongst plants is calming. Let's create a modern jungle inside this house.

Alright, we've gotten pretty far! Now we have our base colors right, and added some life with plants, we can start sprinkling in fun, art and colour.

From here, you can basically start adding in as much color as you like! If you're going to paint a wall, it could be calmer to pick one, max two, colours. We love sticking to pastel colours for walls.

Lighting is often overlooked, but very key in setting the vibe.

Choose fairy lights and candles!

Room acoustics

Do your rooms sound echo-y? Oops! You can fix that by adding soft materials that block the sound waves from bouncing off the walls and floor. Carpets help - especially vale, old, Persian rugs. They make it look a little bit music studio-y, you know?

A clothing rack, wall trinket, a couch, bed, chair, wall rugs, plants - all of those help to get cosy acoustics in your rooms.

Now pop your surf boards by the entrance, get some guitars, a piano, a dog, some books, and you're done!
