The SUN came out over the weekend! So I got out my sunglasses, ditched the giant sleeping bag coat and got out for a couple of walks--felt so good and was a great way to recharge my batteries--wish you were here to go for a walk with me!
Today I wanted to share one room of a whole house project that I thought you would LOOOOOOOVE to see…
This cute couple, Kathy and Aaron…
…had one of those houses that needed a ton of TLC. They had sent their son off to college, have been BUSY with careers and a little more than a year ago, noticed that it WAS TIME to give their home some love, too.
As you can tell from the picture, these two are fun, active, outdoorsy and totally up for anything! We have worked through their entire space and are just finishing up the kitchen details this week.
Today, though, I wanted to show you just the Dining Room transformation--don’t worry, there’s more coming :)
This space presents some unique challenges! Even though one end is open to the Living Room, and there’s a 5 foot doorway to the kitchen and a lot of windows to the deck, this room still felt STUCK.
That “dead end” energy at the back of the room felt like a “chi trap” (nowhere to go)--the images on the wall were tiny and even though they had just upgraded the lighting, the space felt dark--mostly due to the wall paint which was (too) earthy and low vibing.
AND, guess what? This space was rarely used and tended to collect “junk”.
The table and light remained the same. The BIGGEST chi hit is the birch tree mural at the back of the room WITH a mirror to bounce the light around.
New paint colors 🤩 and most of all now a BALANCE of elements creating a space that feels fun and alive.
Kathy just told me that now they eat in the dining room--even if it’s just the two of them--and as you can see the “junk” is non-existent…
That’s the magic of Feng Shui--an elementally balanced space, the use of high vibing colors and especially in this room--correcting for the stuck feeling of the blank wall in the back.
This creates a space that attracts people to use it, to stay and enjoy AND a space that feels so special that it also doesn’t attract clutter.
Do you have a room or area in your home that needs an energetic boost? Feel free to reach out if you would like to discuss your thoughts on a project, I always LOVE to hear what’s going on in your home or office!
Lots of Love,
