Have you ever felt that your space is obstructing your thought flow, or a mental block that restricts your creativity or positive energy? Then you should definitely try this new concept decor which doesn’t just add on to the aesthetics but also invokes your senses. The concept is derived from synesthesia, a concept which invokes a trigger of emotions and stimulates the senses which are inter-connected, like vision and memory, smell and nostalgia, sound and mood. To be precise synesthesia is a phenomenon in which, “a sensation produced in one modality when a stimulus is applied to another modality, as when the hearing of a certain sound induces the visualization of a certain color”. Here are a few things which will make your decor more synesthetic than superfluous.

Art is the Ultimate Pathway

Art in any form is essential in any space. You can put up abstract art frames ranging from figurative to just colors splashed over a canvas. This is the most Essential part of synesthetic decor, that in the end you have to decide what invokes your senses and makes you feel connected to your senses. From textured wallpapers, to wall art and murals, everything is art which needs to be present somewhere in your space.

Music to the soul

Music is not just playing your favorite tracks over the evening, it is a lot more than just rhythms and annotations, music is therapy of the soul. The type of music you play sets your mood and can also set the style of your space. A jazz fan will make sure his room is classy with metallic accents and leather Barcelonas. A pop fan on the other hand, will incline towards fast trends, maximalism and eclectic themes. Again music is not just the tracks you play, they are also the rhythms that sound pleasing to your ears, from the loud gush of wind on a chilly evening to the sweet melody of a bird in the morning. Make sure your space is interactive enough with all this music.

The play of light

It is true when we say that any light depending on its type holds the power to set the mood and decisions of a person. A dim setting will always make you relax, whereas a bright one may come out as clinical. Natural light is essential for the balance of energies, dim lights for relaxation and fluorescents for working those late nights. Back lighting is essential for highlighting certain accents whereas faux lighting is done to add some of them.

Make sure you choose the right ones to invoke your synesthesia!
