Entice Your Senses

What we see, smell, and feel will have a direct impact on how we’re able to unwind. With that in mind, aim for a few key adjustments to the ambiance in your home. Candlelight is one way to dim the lights and create a relaxing aura. You can also choose naturally scented candles with scents like floral, lavender, and coconut, depending on what puts you in that “happy place”.

Baker’s Delight

The process of baking something delicious requires patience and love and to us, these are two ingredients that make any situation better. And thanks to the countless instructional recipe videos on Youtube, you can get step-by-step instructions on how to make endless goodies. Once your masterpiece is out of the oven, curl up on the couch with a good book or movie and let your taste buds rejoice.

It’s All About the Feels

Don’t forget to include plenty of soft fabrics and comfortable cushions in your living space. A good pillow and soft blanket will help you melt into your couch or bed, and melt away stress as well.

Old School Entertainment

Put away the cell phones, turn off the laptops, and opt for some classic board games. This type of interaction and social bonding is key because not only should your home feel comfortable, but your relationships with others in it should complement that as well.

Tune Up the Band

No, we’re not suggesting you put an orchestra in your living room. But choosing the right music for the right situation can certainly help ease your mind after a long and stressful day. Keep a playlist of your favorite chill-out songs and combine it with any or all of these pointers above for a maximum relax session.

The most important thing when it comes to making your home a peaceful cove is sticking to the things that work for you. Feel free to reach out to Connie and Jamie Real Estate for more tips on how to soften your home’s feel, or any other Napa Valley real estate needs you may have.
