I’ve always dreamed of having a room in my home where the floor is covered in a sea of pillows and blankets, and nothing else. While a room like that is out of the question in my current one-room apartment, I still think it’s important to create a space that’s dedicated to relaxation. This kind of environment is calming for the soul, and it also promotes creativity. You don’t need much – just some pillows, blankets, and a couple other decorations that make you feel at ease. Clear out a small corner in your home – preferably by a window – and set up camp.
First, lay a colorful blanket on the floor and top with some pretty pillows. The blanket I used is actually our Tie Dye Raw Silk Poncho – and the pillows are actually cat beds, which will be available on our site sometime this week!
Hang a printed sheet or tapestry from the wall. Shown here is the Tie Dye FP Blanket.
Add some delicate touches that you love. I used our lavender and gold feather wishing bottles, as well as a jar filled with twigs. I had to add the little bottle cap birdcage that I made a while back. I love this thing!
Since I wanted this to be a creative space, I also incorporated some acrylic paint and a paintbrush. I’d love to hang out in this space and just let my imagination guide the paintbrush.
As a finishing touch, I hung one of our giant handmade dreamcatchers because I am absolutely in love with it. I love the beautiful fabric strips that hang down.
