THE SENSE OF SIGHT OF OUR HOMES IS THE COLORS USED IN THEIR DECORATION… YOUR SPIRIT THAT FINDS SERENITY IN THE TONES OF LAVENDER WILL GLOW WITH BRIGHT YELLOWS.
We perceive the world with information we receive from our 5 senses of sight, touch, smell, taste and hearing. We establish, remember, and miss our living spaces with these 5 senses. We use our 5 senses which govern our relations with the outside world in our homes as well. Every house has a part that appeals to each of the 5 senses. We remember a house we used to live in by its smell and even remember the happy memories we had there with a smile on our faces…
Our house, into which we have transferred our tastes up to the smallest details, also has a personality that appeals to the 5 senses. You may have not noticed this in your daily routine. However, when you think about it, you will realize that you have even been actually enjoying it. So what are the 5 senses of our homes? Here is the answer:
The first aesthetic element of a house that strikes one’s eye is the harmony of the colors. When you enter a home, the color harmony appeals to the sense of sight. Your spirit that finds serenity in the tones of lavender will glow with bright yellows and will become calm with pastel blues, while being refreshed with lively greens. Colors are the eyes of homes; the color harmony of a home can really affect whether some people will like their homes or not. For this reason, using compatible and energetic colors is important.
While music preferences reflect the taste and mood of the homeowner, playing music will also block the discomforting noises coming from outside. When the door of a home opens, the discomforting noises or bird sounds coming from outside will appeal to the hearing sense. For example, you can remember an enjoyable breakfast or a dinner you had with your friends by a pleasant music that was being played. Maybe the taste of some tea you drank on your balcony in the company of birds that were singing could still be on your tongue… We miss our homes with the melodies that remind us of them. That is why, it is recommended to complete your idle hours at home accompanied by melodies.
Textiles are the equivalents of the sense of touch in our homes. For instance, textures such as plush or artificial fur invoke our feeling of freshness. Because lying down in your soft comfortable sofa under the wool blankets and watching a movie appeal to your sense of touch and leave a good feeling in your memories. The silk satin sheets and bedclothes that you use for your bed appeal to your sense of touch by giving you coolness and serenity, when sleeping while reminding you of your home’s senses.
Some houses smell like soap while others smell like flowers. While scented candles and incense serve for the sense of smell of your home, they also help it shape its smell identity. The smell of coffee, cake, or a food that has just been cooked shows the lifestyle of your home along with appealing to the sense of smell by embedding itself into your mind. From today’s textile companies to hotels, scents are used for creating a brand identity. You can also create the identity of your home by choosing a scent.
The sense of taste of our homes is our tables. Their designs, colors, and functional furniture in our kitchens and dining rooms turn eating into a fun activity from an action, which needs to be quickly done. Delicious food is important for a meal but the plates and table sheets used along in its presentation will also turn eating into a pleasure. Special dining sets, cut flowers, and food eaten accompanied by a pleasant presentation will make it much more memorable.
