First things first… a cute baby update--
Lander, grandbaby #7, is 2 months old and really showing his personality!
Today I want to share my thoughts on ART and specifically the art you choose and hang in your space…
Everyone has some sort of art pieces hanging in their space--that’s a given.
Either you choose them specifically for the room or hang up art that you already have to “fill up the walls” and MOST TIMES you don’t give it much thought--right?
Art, however, is powerful!!!! And the messages it conveys are also powerful. These pieces hanging in your space are chit, chit, chatting away to you 24/7 and informing your energy even though you may not be aware of it.
Here’s an example--At one initial design consultation, this piece of art was hanging directly across from the front door so it was visible each and every time our clients walked into their home:
They had opinions and beliefs about how famous this image is, (It was a print--but this particular piece is impressionist Paul Ranson’s work) how expensive it was, the circumstances of when they bought it, and how beautiful they perceived it to be, but FOR THESE CLIENTS and IN THIS SPACE, it was not lifting the energy of their home or their personal energy. Can you feel it, too?
And, as they were faced with this fiery, hot and unhappy image Every Single Time they opened their door to come home it was beaming these feelings to them and causing a perceptible funk in their lives.
In fact, they BOTH said that they often felt a little low and tended to quibble with each other (too much fire in the picture).
There were definitely other factors contributing, but this piece of art affected them and their relationship directly.
This is the piece we used as a replacement--
A softer piece, by Matt Bialer, welcoming you home giving you an easier, more gentle entry into your home and life.
The message to YOU is--take a fresh look at what is on the walls in your space, does it speak to your future, is it inspiring, beautiful, does it take your breath away and cause you to feel love, joy or abundance? OR, does it drag you down, keep you playing small--feeling indifferent or sad?
NEWSFLASH: The artist’s hard-drive is IN the pieces they create!!!
That is, the vibration and frequency of the artist, what they believe about themselves and LIFE is poured directly into their art as they create. It is a direct reflection of their own personal operating system.
And then, you take it home with you then it feeds YOUR vibration and frequency.
Here is an example:
Notice the three pictures at the back of the living room. They are small, irregularly shaped images and had been there for a very long time. They were no longer interesting or inspiring to our clients.
The transformation of this space is incredible(!) and the art plays a VERY important part in the upgraded energy. It’s large enough to pull you into the room and beautiful enough to keep you there! This artist paints with a great deal of joy, beauty and connection.
Here’s another example:
This is a commercial office that really needed some love and attention--
This client worked very, very hard to clear the clutter, the furniture was upgraded, the walls were painted but notice how the art grabs your attention and pulls you into the space--what an enhancement for this client and everyone she comes in contact with!
Art is one of the most dynamic elements in any space--it’s worth spending some time considering yours!

Today, I would love to share a family room transformation with you--talk about a shot of freshness!
Living Rooms tend to feel a little more formal and Family Rooms are spaces designed to feel more casual--they're family-friendly, accessible, and comfortable. But that doesn’t mean they have to feel dreary!!!!
This family is OVER the moon excited (!!!) about their transformation and this room gets used every single day:
“Our family room is where we gather for fun and connection - dance parties, gymnastics/ninja sessions, reading, movies and more. We love how the furnishings, wall colors and art make this room feel--fun, cozy AND alive--we love it!”
Is there a space in your home that feels stagnant or tiresome? IF you have a project in mind and would like to contact me for a complimentary 20 minute phone call, just reply here and we can set up a time to chat!
Lots of Love,
