Designing Serenity: The Fusion of Wellness and Escapism in Interior Spaces

Designing Serenity: The Fusion of Wellness and Escapism in Interior Spaces

With fast-paced lifestyles and constant technological distractions, the importance of wellness and escapism cannot be overstated. The conversation surrounding mental health worldwide has never been more important than in recent years, with statistics from 2022 indicating that an average of 37.1% of women and 29.9% of men in the UK reported high levels of anxiety (Mental Health Foundation). Amidst these challenges, individuals yearn for a sanctuary within their own homes, turning to interior designers to cultivate spaces that encourage a sense of peace and serenity.

Embracing Wellness and Escapism with de Le Cuona 

de Le Cuona embraces the concept of wellness and escapism in interior design. The exquisite fabric collections are crafted with a profound understanding of the emotional impact that interior spaces can have on individuals. By using the finest natural fibers, such as organic linens and sumptuous cashmere, de Le Cuona fabrics bring tactile comfort to the creation of serene environments. 

The brand's dedication to sustainability aligns perfectly with wellness principles of interior design. In 2020 de Le Cuona launched Pure - the ultimate collection of interior textiles, for those who are pursuing wellness and looking to invest in a healthy lifestyle. Pure is a 100% organic linen collection certified to The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and designed without compromise on the beauty and the handle of the fabrics. 

Certification to GOTS ensures the organic status of this linen, from the farming of the raw materials, through every step of the environmentally and socially responsible making process. The fabrics are sustainably produced without harmful chemicals meaning no damaging particles are emitted into the environment or the air we breathe in our interiors.   

The diverse range of textures, colours, and subtle patterns allows designers and homeowners to infuse spaces with elements of escapism. Whether it be through evoking memories of far-off travels, inspiring creativity through bold colours, or creating calming retreats through muted hues, these understated cloths become the conduit for bringing escapism-based designs to life. 

Creating a Calming Sanctuary

Natural elements like plants, soothing colour palettes, and the use of sustainable materials can transform a space into a calming haven. Using organic textures, such as wood and stone, adds an earthy touch that connects you with nature, promoting a sense of grounding and balance. 

The use of lighting also plays a significant role in enhancing wellness within interior spaces. Soft, warm lighting can evoke a sense of cosines and relaxation, while natural lighting invited in through sheer curtains woven by de Le Cuona can bring a soft natural light into a room - promoting healthier sleep patterns.

The Art of Escapism: Using Colour 

The use of colour psychology, complemented by de Le Cuona's versatile colour range, is the key to escapism-oriented design. Bold, yet natural tones, can evoke feelings of energy and excitement, making them ideal spaces designed for creativity or inspiration. On the other hand, softer, muted hues can create a tranquil atmosphere and are mostly used for areas dedicated to meditation or reflection. 

Finding Balance Between Wellness and Escapism 

By combining areas designed for introspection, such as a cosy reading nook adorned with spaces that ignite the imagination, such as a creatively decorated home office, individuals can switch between states of tranquility and excitement as desired. 

With an unwavering dedication to crafting textiles that elevate wellness and inspire escapism, de Le Cuona proves to be an indispensable ally in the quest for designing harmonious and uplifting interior spaces.
