Just relax

07 March 2016

So the holiday season has just wrapped up and you’re exhausted. After all of that socialising, entertaining, and cooking, you deserve a break. So we’ve thought up a few ideas to make your home a perfect place to grab a few peaceful moments.

Many plants are placed in front of a large window to create a relaxing space with a bench and an IKEA PS GULLHOLMEN rocking chair.

IT MAY BE CHILLY OUTSIDE, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a bit of the great outdoors. Create a lush, green space with loads of plants and furniture in natural materials. A perfect spot for yoga, meditation, or nothing at all.

A bench and an IKEA SÖDERHAMN corner section are placed in front of a window and draped with a canopy to make a cosy reading space.

FOR MOST OF US, COMPLETE RELAXATION MEANS being alone. So why not cocoon yourself away? A gauzy, light canopy creates a totally chilled vibe for reading or just a quick moment on your own. We dip-dyed ours for a beautiful blue ombré effect

Create a relaxing spa zone in your bathroom and hang ENUDDEN wall storage next to the bathtub.

THERE’S PRETTY MUCH NOTHING MORE RELAXING than a morning at the spa. But there’s really no reason leave home for the experience. We love using kitchen wall storage to keep everything neat and close at hand. Yup, even your breakfast.
