Sanctuary for Minimalist Mom

If you love black and white and clean lines, this theme would be perfect for you. For some, it might seem too strong and too “mannish”. I know if this is your preferred space for relaxation you won’t be satisfied with “soft and fluffy”. Enjoy the simple combination of furniture and home decor. You can always go fancy with your drink or candle selection:)

Mum’s Magic power

Maybe you like the minimalistic style but you like a little bit of magic as well. Are you a fan of crystals? Or maybe you have a set of tarot cards you love to read. Create your space in a modern style: you don’t need to show everyone that you are a secret fortune teller.

Sanctuary in bright colours

If you love bright colours, don’t be afraid to use them in your space. The trick here is that you use some colours which can be found elsewhere in the home decor – meaning these colours are repeated throughout the home. Complete the design with colours from the neutral spectrum or use gold accessories.
