Trend: Mindful Relaxation

Consciously creating a space that’s deeply restful, the Mindful Relaxation trend from Oak Furnitureland brings peace and quiet to the heart of the home by calling on the power of crystalline colours, natural materials and refined details.

The hectic pace of life today means as we step over the threshold of our home more and more of us want to be welcomed into a restorative space. Stripping away the excess makes room for a quiet celebration of thoughtful design touches; an effect that’s as liberating for interiors as it is for busy heads.

Inspired by the iridescent beauty of crystals and materials like marble, wood and stone, the Mindful Relaxation trend is a gentle balance of grounding earthy sage greens and lifting touches of calamine pink. Centring the scheme around furniture forged from the same shades of natural oak and with simple details and accents like dovetail joints left on show, the mind and eye are given breathing space to flow freely.

Mindful Relaxation Bedroom

Sleep is key to our health and wellbeing and creating areas in our homes where we can truly switch off has huge benefits not just for our bodies but for our minds too.

The Oslo king size bed forms the centrepiece in this bedroom scheme. With a slender contemporary silhouette, pieces in the collection have a simplicity that creates a sense of calm and spaciousness which is ideal in smaller houses or apartments. Scandi-inspired, each piece is pared back to focus attention on the integrity of the solid natural oak.

“Use a band of colour on walls or recesses to demarcate spaces and the different functions of a room, whether partially or even fully knocked through.

“To add depth to walls consider painting them using a dry brush technique. In the living room scheme we chose a base coat of calamine pink then added extra paint over the top, using an almost dry paintbrush and a couple of tonally different accent colours to mimic the beautiful depth and texture of Rose Quartz.”

Sharing a similarly Scandi aesthetic to the Oslo console table and coffee table, the Jensen three-seater sofa has a modern, clean design which gives this scheme room to breathe.

The slim frame, tapered legs and smooth-fronted drawers on the Oslo coffee table has a mid-century feel that’s fresh and fuss-free.

Mindful Relaxation Dining Room

Oak Furnitureland has mixed and matched its Natural benches and Fret dining chairs with its solid oak Alto dining table, which is treated with clear furniture wax to emphasise the timber’s grain and ensure a hard wearing finish that matches the durability of its build quality.

“Using benches in this dining area helps with the casual feel.  They also make it easy to squeeze in extra guests with space either end for chairs.
