Corners of Calm

As the world grows more hectic, we’ve come to think of our homes as sanctuaries. Yet many of us have opened up the interiors of our houses, combining kitchen, dining, and living room in a “great room.” An open house means more freedom and togetherness, but it may also mean more noise and commotion.

One antidote is to create a private space where you can go to meditate, read, knit, write, pursue a craft, play a musical instrument, or simply unwind. Your “corner of calm” might be an entire room, such as an unused bedroom, or a sectioned-off corner of a larger room. The idea is to put psychological distance between your retreat and the rest of the house, even if the physical distance is not great.
