A guide to crystal healing and which minerals are best for your interior space
How to use crystals in your space?
A few weeks ago Temza London published our beautifully curated office display unit on Instagram. We embraced the opportunity to add a few new crystals too! Our interior designers asked you if you would like to know more about crystals, particularly crystals in interiors. As a result, we were delighted that you received our query with great interest and enthusiasm. So, here it is! A blog post focussing on stunning natural stones and their place in our homes. Read on and discover how to select your own crystals, where to place them and some of our favourites.
What do crystals bring to us and how they change our spaces?
The word crystal evokes a feeling of luxury and enchantment, something precious and beautiful that is born from the earth itself. The very nature of their creation means they are unique with such a variety of colours, patterns and shapes available – perfect for adding a personal decorative touch to any setting. Inviting the outdoors indoors is a very popular trend, and crystals are just perfect for this. They enable you to enjoy an instant connection with nature that enriches the soul. After all, how can you fail to feel happy when you surround yourself with beautiful things? With their intrinsic repeating patterns and rugged allure, these magnificent minerals are becoming a big part of the rising trend, maximalism. With a `more is more’ philosophy, you can really let your personality and passion shine.
As well as their unquestionable beauty, crystals have a deeper meaning and a positive impact on the spaces we inhabit. Each crystal holds varying restorative energies that you can use mindfully around your interior. So, it will promote positive energy and clear away negative energy, therefore balancing your space and your spirit. Some promote peace and tranquillity, whilst others energize the area they are placed in. With so many benefits, crystals are becoming more and more popular in interior design, decoration and styling.
How to choose your crystals?
Picking your crystal is a very personal decision. In short, for any crystal to work on a deeper and more spiritual level, it’s essential to choose one that genuinely speaks to you. Try to notice your personal attachment! Which one attracts you? Perhaps you like its shape or its colour? Pick it up, hold it for a minute. How does it feel? Listen to your feelings and trust your instincts. Allow these crystals to shine through, with a few of the interior design team’s suggestions below:
