At a time when the world around never slows down and is a constant source of stress, it is essential that you feel comfortable at home.
And as Kunal Trehan of Touched Interiors will show you, it doesn’t take much to transform your home into a true haven of peace.
The importance of lighting
Light plays a vital role in our balance and dictates how our brain regulates our sleep cycles. This is why it is important to install dim lighting to match this natural cycle.
The key is to create a lighting scheme that has the power to turn the clock. Install mood lighting whenever possible. The designer suggests lighting that can be dimmed in the evening or adjustable task lighting that awakens the senses and your soul.

The bedroom is one of the most important spaces in your home when it comes to luxury. Perhaps you should consider arranging your furniture according to the principles of feng shui, which includes a central bed and bedside tables on each side for perfect harmony and balance.
“Make sure you don’t have too many things in your room. Build storage that hides things, as this will allow your mind to be as clear as possible when you come to retire there,” Kunal Trehan assures. “Blackout curtains, muted lighting, and warm, organic fabrics can help you feel comfortable. Finally, avoid the TV in this space if possible.
If you are fortunate enough to have a garden, try to improve this space so that you can use it for as many months of the year as possible.
“I love using organic and natural materials in outdoor spaces because our relationship with nature can bring us spirit and positive healing,” the expert shares with us. “Surround your outdoor spaces with fires or fireplaces so you can enjoy them on cooler evenings.”
