A Zen Start to the New Year: Creating Peaceful Spaces in Your Whole Home Remodel

LJ2As the new year begins, many of us are looking for ways to create more meaning and peace in our lives. A whole home remodel that dramatically transforms your environment is one way to live with more serenity on a daily basis. Elements of your whole home design can be specifically planned to create areas ideal for alone time, quiet reflection and connection with nature.

For a whole home remodel in La Jolla Shores, the connection between the open space inside and the verdant space outside is one of the elements that create a sense of openness and calm in this modern dwelling. High ceilings, abundant lighting and an open floor plan set the stage for simple furnishings, interesting works of art and a compelling fireplace. In the home’s outdoor area, a long bench under a canopy of greenery invites peaceful lounging next to a trickling water feature.

  • Focus on natural, earthy colors
  • Emphasize natural light
