Creating Zen Nooks & Crannies for Your Home

Relaxing and restful, refreshing and revived, sometimes you need a space in your house that does all of those things for you. Your home is your personal oasis, a place to rejuvenate, so, it’s only natural that at least one tiny nook is dedicated to just that. Creating a place of zen inside the house(Asian inspired decor) is easier than you may think. With the right colors and accents, a tranquil space will be calling your name in no time. Let’s get inspired and take a look at some real-life examples of zen nooks inside a house, apartment or even a dorm room!
