Every home needs a place for quiet meditation, and the breathtaking Fire Features design inspirations by Elena Colombo create an atmosphere to completely unwind in. We often define the rooms of our homes by what we do in them – dining, living, entertaining – or the objects we use in them – beds, TVs, baths.
Last year, I decided to create a small meditation space in my home as a place, and as a reminder, to practice stillness and silence.
We’ve recently done some minor remodeling and redecorating, so we repurposed part of our study {which is actually the living room, but since no one really uses living rooms, we’ve made ours an office} to expand and redecorate the space in our home for stillness. You may want to make your space visible. For some, a meditation area may be private, but I love that my space is in the front of our home. This article from The Art of Living has more advice about choosing a space in your home, as well as creating a meditation space in your office.

This is relatively new to me so trying to be consistent has been challenging while in one place, I would like to get used to using something simple that I can take on the go now, rather than wait until we are on the go.


Even after attaining Enlightenment, the Buddha remained of this world and lived in this world. I meditate kind of anywhere… I definitely have some spaces in my house that could be put to more meaningful use.
I would love to attach the idea of meditation (not paying bills!) to something that I can take with us.
I am passionate about sharing the gift of mindful living with little people AND big people -- children and parents, students and teachers -- so that we all may lead joyful and compassionate lives. We may have spaces for sewing, writing, reading, gardening, painting, or model train building. You could also use an empty, spacious closet {if you have one!} Based on the purpose of your space, you could make it in a main area of your house, in a corner of your bedroom, or even in your backyard or garden. Most people recommend a minimalist approach to decorating a meditation area, in order to avoid distractions. But if you use a meditation pillow and cushion, or a singing bowl, or beads in your practice you could display them.


To help them focus their attention, we ring the bowl and breathe silently until we can no longer hear even a trace of the sound. I love the idea of a meditation space as I usually am in my small writing office, which is not a real serene spot (many papers are scattered on my desk). The purpose of your space will help you determine where it should be and what you will need. My children know that the decorations are not toys, and that this is an area of the house they can come to when they need some quiet time alone.
