How can you make your home feel calm and relaxing? You may fill your home with fragrant scents, pastel shades, and soft furniture and furnishings. You might also want to think about choosing a charming country-inspired design for your personal space.

Since a country-style home is filled with wrought iron details, wooden materials and furniture pieces, this place seems warm, cozy, and comfortable. If you would also like a home that could easily belong on a farm or in the province, check out our design ideas based on this 144sqm condo designed by interior designer Macie Lorenzo:

Create a photo wall near the entrance

Did you know that photos of your family, friends, and favorite places can put you in a good mood when you enter and before you leave your home? You can simply put up these framed pictures on the wall nearest your front door.

Start with fully upholstered pieces

If you would like to create a place that you would love to come home to, you may want to furnish your space with fully upholstered pieces! In the case of this two-bedroom condo, the fully upholstered sofa, bench, and side chairs make the living area more welcoming and inviting.

Replace dining chairs with an upholstered bench

You may also want to use mismatched pieces for a casual and relaxed feel. In this dining area, the interior designer opted to complement a traditional dining table and chairs with a fully upholstered bench. 

RL Tip: Instead of replacing your dining chairs with a bench, you may also want to repaint your dining chairs. Dining chairs in different colors look unique and interesting.

Choose a built-in seat

For some strange reason, a built-in seat such as this one never fails to make me want to lie down and take a nap or curl up with my favorite book. You may also want to opt for a built-in seat if you would also like to create a sweet little nook of your own.

RL Tip: If you have no time to install a built-in seat, you can simply look for a bench that would perfectly fit your wall. 

Opt for a white bedroom

White materials and furniture pieces can make your bedroom feel even more tranquil and peaceful! If you have a little bit of extra time on your hands this weekend, you can begin by painting your walls, bed frame, tables, and cabinets white.
