The Art of Incorporating Scent into Your Interiors

If you know me and have been to my home or the studio, you know I love a good candle and always have one burning. Creating a beautiful and inviting home goes beyond aesthetics. While your space's overall aesthetic and design are important, the ambiance and atmosphere are equally important. One often overlooked but incredibly impactful element in interior design is scent. As an interior designer, I spend considerable time curating beautiful scents to enhance my spaces. The right fragrance can transform a room, evoke emotions, and leave a lasting impression on anyone who enters.

The Power of Scent

A scent is a powerful tool for influencing mood and well-being. It can trigger memories, reduce stress, and create a sense of comfort. Incorporating scents into your interiors can elevate the overall experience of a space, making it feel more personal and welcoming.

Choosing the Right Scent

When selecting scents for your home, consider the purpose of each room. For instance:

Living Room: Opt for warm, inviting scents like vanilla, amber, or sandalwood to create a cozy and relaxing environment.

Kitchen: Fresh and clean fragrances such as citrus or herbs can complement the culinary atmosphere and eliminate lingering cooking odors. Once I clean up the kitchen, I always light a candle.

Bedroom: Calming scents like lavender, chamomile, or eucalyptus promote relaxation and restful sleep. It's also very romantic to light a candle at bedtime. Not only does the scent add a touch of cozy that a lamp light can't accomplish, but the flickering light also adds a touch of romance.

Bathroom: Refreshing and invigorating scents like eucalyptus, mint, or sea breeze can enhance the feeling of cleanliness and rejuvenation.

Candles: A Timeless Choice

Candles are a timeless and versatile option for introducing scent into your home. Their soft, flickering light provides both fragrance and a soothing ambiance. In my home and studio, you will always find a candle burning, creating an inviting and warm atmosphere. Candles can be strategically placed throughout your home to provide a consistent and delightful fragrance experience.

Seasonal Scents

Changing your home's scent with the seasons can enhance the connection to the time of year. In spring and summer, light and floral scents like jasmine or rose can bring the freshness of the outdoors inside. For fall and winter, richer, spicier scents such as cinnamon, clove, or pine can add warmth and a sense of coziness.
