Turn your home into a sanctuary of cool this summer with these chilled ideas:

Colour

Paper, paint or decorate with blues and greens. These cool tones are commonly thought to be relaxing and refreshing, and science has proven the power of blue. A University of British Columbia study found blue enhanced creativity. So at the very least, it will help you imagine you are somewhere cooler!

Green wall

If installing an actual ‘living wall’ is out of the question, try a beautiful photo wall mural instead. They are simple to find online, or if you have a favourite rainforest photo, this could be turned into a mural too.

Furniture

One technique of hot climate architecture is to design large rooms and open spaces to increase cross ventilation. If you can’t knock out your walls, sleek furnishings that don’t clutter the room will give you the feeling of more space, and help to cool the brain with more ‘headroom’.

Or invest in a comfy daybed to lie under a fan or aircon vent for ultimate cooling relaxation!
