Calm

Interiors to nurture, relax and restore

Home should be a place to retreat from the everyday. Creating a home that instills a sense of calm will cocoon and protect us from the outside world, create a sense of wellbeing and make us feel truly nurtured.

In recent times, many of us have spent more time at home than ever before. Calm will help you create a restful, restorative interior that draws you in and makes your shoulders drop the moment you walk through the door. Sally Denning first explores the essential foundations of a tranquil, comforting home: calming and harmonious colors, textiles, patterns, lighting, and decorative elements. She goes on to explore a mix of accessible real-life homes, ranging from city homes to country houses, new builds, apartments, beach houses, and more. The spaces may be different, but they all share one thing: a timeless, soothing, and restful atmosphere that is a pleasure to come home to.

Sally Denning is a freelance interiors stylist and creative director. She has more than 20 years’ experience in the industry, including 12 years working on leading interiors and women’s interest magazines for prestigious publishing houses in London.
