Your home should be a place that helps you feel centered and at peace. With all the stress we face in our day-to-day lives, wouldn’t it be nice to walk in your door and enter an environment that puts you at ease? Restorative design aims to do this by helping you create a calming sanctuary.

What is Restorative Design?

Restorative design is a style of decor that puts the mind, body, and soul first by focusing on biophilic influences and sustainability. An easy, peaceful style of home decor, Restorative design creates a sense of tranquility by establishing a connection to the outdoors. Even when the weather is cold and gray, having those natural connections indoors can go a long way in helping you feel refreshed and energized.

What Colors to Use in Restorative Design

As a style with roots in nature, organic colors drive Restorative design. Grounded neutrals like taupes, beiges, and browns are stapes of this style and allow other natural hues, like aquatic blues and sage greens, to shine. 

Types of Flooring in Restorative Design

Flooring with a Restorative interior should be understated and natural. For wood visuals, look for European White Oak, maple, and hickory with minimal distressing and light or mid-tone caramelized finishes. Natural stone visuals like concrete, slate, and limestone are also great options. When looking for rugs, keep an eye out for rugs made with natural fibers, understated neutral colors, and interesting textures. 

Here are a few Mannington floors that will complement Restorative design perfectly:

How to Accessorize Restorative Design

  • Restorative design is very earthy, making organic fabrics and natural materials are ideal for this style. Try adding some hand-crafted, artisanal quality accents.  

  • Imperfection is perfect for Restorative design. Embrace the look of raw wood and natural finishes that let the natural beauty of wood stand out. 

  • Greenery is a natural fit in homes with Restorative design, whether it’s live plants, artificial plants, or artwork with images of greenery.

Style of Furniture in Restorative Design

Less is more with Restorative design. Minimalist furniture styles look beautiful and help add to the calming atmosphere. Look for pieces with neutral colors and clean, simple designs. With the emphasis on simplicity and minimalism, be sure to include storage options that will keep clutter hidden from view.
