Take a few minutes to think about your classroom decor. What would your dream classroom look and feel like? In addition, how do you want your students to feel when they walk through the door?
Of course, we tend to gravitate toward the bright colors and prints that kids love but that may actually be overstimulating. Instead of overstimulating, wouldn’t it be amazing to create a cool and calm environment that promotes mindfulness and serenity?
Calming Classroom Decor Tips
Pinterest has a campaign called “Pinterest Predicts for 2022.” That campaign predicts that Calming Classroom Decor will be the trend of 2022. Considering the chaos of the last two years, we are all looking for ways to calm the chaos and stress, so why not start with your classroom!
My Eucalyptus and Lavender Classroom Decor resource is featured in the Pinterest campaign. With calming colors, nature themes, and posters that promote mindfulness, it has all of the elements you need to achieve that feeling of serenity in your classroom.
This bundled resource includes:
- 30 editable calming classroom posters
- multiple rolling cart labels
- multiple supply and classroom labels
- 9 different style bulletin board borders
- 6 different style banners
- And a teacher planner cover with a spine.
Color is a key element in creating a calm classroom environment. If you search for calming color palettes, you will see lots of subtle greens, soft purples, and warm grays. Using these calming colors throughout your classroom can positively affect everyone’s mood, yours included!
You can start small with this Lavender and Eucalyptus Editable Classroom Labels or dive right in with the Eucalyptus Classroom Decor bundle. It’s the perfect way to update your classroom decor with calming greens and soft shades of purple.
Nurture with Nature
Incorporating nature-themed elements into your classroom decor can promote tranquility and serenity. Not to mention, it is so on-trend right now! Bring the outdoors in by using greenery like eucalyptus or dried lavender throughout your classroom.
Additionally, diffusing nature-inspired scents such as lavender, lemongrass, and eucalyptus can also help create a calm environment! Fun fact: eucalyptus oil can lower blood pressure and reduce anxiety. Just make sure diffusers are allowed in your school first!
Calming Wall Decor
Walls and bulletin boards with too many posters and colors can be distracting and overwhelming. Instead, stick with a theme and your calming color palette. The posters in my Eucalyptus and Lavender Classroom Decor bundle are an easy way to ensure your wall decor stays consistent with your calming theme and color palette.
With quotes like “Breathe in, breathe out,” “Brilliant Things Happen in Calm Minds,” and “Find the Calm in the Chaos,” your classroom decor will exude calm!
Bonus Design Hack: add simple dollar store frames to your posters to add an extra flare of finished fancy!
Cozy and Comfortable Nooks
In order to feel calm, kids need to feel safe and comfortable. Cozy book nooks with comfy pillows, chairs, and workspaces are a great addition to your calming classroom decor. Use the eucalyptus and lavender labels found HERE to make sure your cozy spaces stay neat and organized.
Just say no to those fluorescent overhead lights! Instead, incorporate soft lighting with lamps or twinkle lights. Additionally, you should maximize natural lighting whenever possible.
Practice what you preach! You should model mindfulness if you expect your students to do the same. Practicing self-care, self-reflection, and organization are all great ways for you to calm your own chaos. Use this Eucalyptus Teacher Planner Cover Freebie to keep you calm, organized, and inspired!
