Sanctuaries to recharge yourself across the home

We’re social creatures, but just as important as time with others is time alone. Of course, this looks different for each person, so this family of six has created a home where everyone can enjoy time by themselves to relax and recharge in their singular way.

Scheduling in some quiet time

With lots of different lives to schedule, finding moments for themselves can be a challenge. Early morning has become their precious time: a couple of extra minutes to get ready before the kids arise, or to chat in bed with a cup of tea and the crossword.

A bathroom with a dark grey GODMORGON wash-stand with one drawer, a brass-coloured FRIHULT wall lamp and a DALFRED bar stool.

A “do not disturb” teenage bedroom

A walk-in closet is a fashionista’s dream, but not for this teen. Set within its three walls, rather than clothes, you’ll find her station of blissful seclusion – a desk, where she can read, write and create with only her thoughts or her favourite album for company.

Getting energy from others

Art recharges her like nothing else. This can look like afternoons on her bed with friends memorising lines for the school play, or time totally alone, finding inspiration between the covers of a magazine.

How to find privacy in a shared room

Together but apart

Identical in looks, not so identical in interests. Even at three years old, these toddlers’ personalities are shining through, from the way they play together to the way they play apart. While one prefers solitude, the other finds comfort in creating worlds with others – real, or imaginary. Tea, anyone?
