house life span

 

This awesome chart by Glotech may shed some light of why it may seem at some times that everything is “falling apart” in your house at once , or why it seems that big things break seemingly out of the blue…

Not everything is meant to be forever! And you may have hit a moment where the lifespans of many things collided! That’s right, you may not be cursed, you may not have big issues… it may just be the natural progression of things… and time for an upgrade.

That said, if you look at the vast range of lifespan of many things listed, maintenance plays a big factor in the ongoing health of certain things in your home as well.

And this chart also calls to mind the fact that certain things will inevitably need to be fixed on day, so plan on the upgrades (rather than treating maintenance as some sort of life punishment as many of us do!) and you’ll never feel less than confident about the health of your home!  xoxo Dana

stylish bookshelves

From simple stacks on a coffee table to walls of information at your fingertips, you really can’t have enough books, ever.  Every month or two I feel like I’ve missed out on learning and hot Amazon.com or the local bookstore with a vengeance, walking out with ten, fifteen, twenty books at a time.  Now, I need to expand my own bookshelving to hold everything… And its only beginning…

Books don’t just bring interest to a space- they bring energy, messages, stories and tools to your life.  Build more bookshelves.  Let this energy wildly expand! Continue Reading…

Angelic prettiness.  That’s what I’m all about today.  Angelic prettiness.

A little romance without going overboard. A little sweetness and otherworldliness while still being grounded.  Continue Reading…

boho chic

(vogue)

My friend is going to start setting up what he calls “a commune” in the most ttrue sense of the word, but also the chic-est sense.  He’s got style. The whole family has style. Big style.

While I’m so psyched to be a part of the collab with my feng shui’d design ways, I couldn’t make it out to the house today due to what I call: “mysteriously missing voice” .  While I stayed home to help repair my swollen jaw, missing voice and overall need for rest, luck sent me a whole bunch of intensely brilliant chic commune inspiration via Tumblr.  I Am Collecting Home Inspiration’s Tumblr to be exact.

Get ready to feel more peace, love and easy freedom…all in design. Continue Reading…
