Do you feel happy when you walk into your home? Or perhaps your home isn’t supporting you as fully as it could be.
We believe our spaces are vital to our well-being. Creating calm is about making space for stillness and for nurturing and supporting yourself, especially in today’s fast-paced world.
“Poorly designed, cluttered spaces are negative and destructive forces in our lives, draining rather than supporting us. Beautiful, calming and uplifting spaces can enhance our lives and improve our wellbeing.” – Helen Sanderson, Ministry of Calm Founder
Ministry of Calm, founded by Helen Sanderson follows the belief that spaces can support and heal us. They recently conducted a survey about “What your space reveals about you”. Needless to say, we were intrigued as we are always looking to create healthier and happier spaces for our clients!
Here’s a quick snapshot of the results:
• A massive 99% of you said that changing your space can effect how you feel
• Nearly 79% of you said it was very important that your space supported your well-being
So it seems that having a space of calm and clarity in your own home to pause and recharge is becoming of importance to more and more people.
When your home is not well designed or disorganized, it can drain your energy. Sometimes changing up the spaces you spend the most time in can have a transformative experience, and from the survey results, it looks like the majority of you agree.

At Ambience Design Group, we believe in designing a space that will support and rejuvenate you.
Here are some tips for creating a space that will nurture your mind, body and soul:
Control Color: Color impacts you on many different levels, both physical and non-physical, affecting things like energy and even your appetite. Begin to become aware of how different colors impact you before determining what hue to paint your walls. Our Human Responses to Colour Guide will show you how colour can influence mood and behaviour and has a full range of emotional effects.
Conquer Clutter: Simply put, clutter creates chaos. It can leave you scrambling to find the keys as you are running out the door and can even weigh on you mentally, when you are trying to focus on other things. Clearing your table of all the papers or creating an organized space by the door where you can find your essential items can do wonders to ease your stress.
Nurture Nature: Humans are designed to appreciate the natural beauty all around us. Natural elements into your space can foster a sense of inner calm and peace. Plants are important for many reasons when designing a restorative home, including helping to clean and re-oxygenate the indoor air.
