It’s my Birthday WEEK!!!!!
I’m incredibly grateful for 61 years of such a good life--full of amazing people, a beautiful home (and plans for a new one this summer, stay tuned) and a kick-ass career.
My Birthday Wish is that I can see you and hug you SOOOOOOOON!!!! I miss you ALL terribly.
I’ve talked to many of you recently, #saferathome, and ACUTELY aware of how your home is/isn’t supporting you...it is amazing, isn’t it, to be faced with it all day, every day?
There are things we can do NOW that will make a huge difference in your space OR we can PLAN for the time when we can work together to create a space that feels:
It’s different for everybody and every design is unique--just know that I’m here for you and happy to have a conversation about what that could look like. Feel free to reach out by replying to this email :)
And, in the meantime, here’s a fun Before and After for you to dream into...
This was Kris and Jason’s Living Room at our first visit--and they were EXCITED for a BIG Feng Shui Adventure)!!!
The chairs face the fireplace and the TV--
Also, they have 2 adorable kids and love to watch movies, read and play games with them in this space, too.
So, we started over--they are so brave!
This room was transformed!
A big, red, soft couch with 4 seats and a chaise was the first addition to the space--big enough for everyone plus the pets :). This couch is a BEACON for “Come, Sit, Relax and Snuggle-up”.
The walls were painted a soft greenish blue--Pleasant Valley (B. Moore). This room is in the wealth corner, so from a Feng Shui perspective, the color supports abundance flowing into their lives, too.
The love seat was replaced with two little swivel rockers which are like having FUN amusement park rides in the living room. The swivel feature allows them to turn to face the TV, the person in the kitchen or each other--swivel chairs are magic!
The art over the sofa is a photo of a place they love to vacation as a family--a soothing beach shot of Turks and Caicos. Do you see how it pulls in the color from the kitchen--feeling SO cohesive?
The wavy-shaped mirror (more water energy) helps bounce light around and reflects the art, too.
The rug is BIGGER, made of totally cleanable Stainmaster Nylon--super soft to play on.
The teal ottomans, of a soft ultrasuede fabric, can be shifted around to wherever they’re needed and also keep the space feeling casual and soft.
You can’t see in the pics, but we also added built-in cabinets on either side of the fireplace to hold toys, books, games and extra blankets--a great way to finish off that wall and create useful storage.
Just FEEL the difference--the balance of the elements and the beauty of the carefully chosen colors, textures, shapes, EVERYTHING creates a balanced, uplifting room.
And, in the spirit of-- “The Better it Gets, The Better it Gets” --this family has gone on to transform their dining room, kitchen, craft area, master bedroom and we are currently working on their lower Level Family room, Home Office/Exercise space, bathrooms and exterior colors.
Because once you start…
Lots of Love,
