Style Tip: Scents for the Seasons
Whether it’s replicating the springtime floral scents and freshness of the new year, warm and light scents of the summer, deep autumnal and forest flavours for the Autumn or spicy festive scents for the Winter – scents set the tone and mood of any room or space inside the home.
The purpose of interior design is to indulge as many of our senses as possible: vision, hearing, touch and smell. All spaces should connect the senses seamlessly, only then can the space evoke the intended feelings and emotions that have been designed.
Spaces can be versatile by season, in simply changing the accessories, or more simply, changing the scent. It has even been proven through a number of studies that fragrance has an effect on a person’s mood. A scented room has the power to create a certain ambience and mood; selecting a scent that synchronises with your space, is just as important as selecting furniture or art.
The purpose of scent can be designed by room, season or mood. For example, fresh fragrances best complement kitchen spaces; soothing scents can be brought into the bedroom to create a relaxing setting; heady florals find a good home in any powder room, and soft fragrances are the most desired choice for living rooms to relax in.
