Making Scents


Creating a haven of tranquility and relaxation helps alleviate the stresses of everyday life. Julia Millen spoke to Clearwater Interiors to discover the benefits of igniting the senses in your bathroom.

Our senses are crucial in entering a much-needed state of relaxation, explains wellbeing psychologist, Lee Chambers: “Given the interplay between individuals and our environments, integrating principles of psychological wellbeing and sensory experiences seamlessly into our homes, can provide a host of benefits”.

From a visual perspective, earthy neutrals can soothe our minds, connecting us to nature and the tranquil atmosphere of regeneration, all creating a visually appealing space.

Soft lighting can create a welcoming ambience, and mirrors can extend natural light to create feelings of expansiveness even in the smallest of spaces.

Achieve visual purity through natural textures and colours paired with neat, curved flows for sensory simplicity. The distinct allure of muted-eco luxe tones forms a truly transformative space that acts as a sanctuary in your home.

In a world full of noise, a bathroom of silence is golden. But for some people, it’s the trickle of water or even the sounds of nature or instruments that can be the soundtrack to promoting relaxation and letting the stress wash away.

Surround yourself with an aura of serenity with the murmur of the water in a freestanding bath or the gentle flow of a waterfall shower, cascading onto the shower tray below.

We often underestimate the power of touch, and a bathroom’s textures and materials can have an impact on how the space makes us feel.

Consider the materials used to create your bathroom; an engineered stone bath with its high concentration of natural stone, allows the bath to retain heat, helping to maintain the temperature of your relaxing soak much longer than a traditional bath. This, paired with Dolomite’s smooth surface texture, gives the ultimate sensory eco-luxe experience, to awaken the senses and leaving you feeling rejuvenated.

Because tactile surfaces elevate our sensory experience, consider how furnishings such as towels, mats and handles can enhance your comfort, and how natural materials such as wood, stone and metal can ground and bring us to a place of peace.

The flexibility of scent allows us to curate a fragrance for the mood we want to evoke. Whether it be energising citrus to start the morning with vigour, or a relaxing floral to unwind at the end of a challenging day. Closing your eyes and taking in the aromas of your bathroom space will ensure a sense of presence in your home.

Given how closely our scent and taste are aligned, fragrance plays a huge role in creating a sensory experience that leaves us not just refreshed, but also relaxed and feeling safe. Much of our sense of taste comes from scent and smell as they are intimately entwined.

By integrating these principles, you can take a bathroom from a place of utility to a haven of wellness that nourishes mind and body. It elevates our daily routine into a little piece of intentional self-care that fosters a sense of peace and rejuvenation every single day.

“Echo and protect the vitality of nature through curated design to elevate mind, body and planet, and create a multi-sensory eco-luxe experience in the home.” Andy Oakman, Head of Clearwater Interiors & Lead Design Consultant.
