While the above image has dark walls and light flooding into a window, that light only happens sometimes…and the rest of the time, the energy and wildness and life of the plant itself adds light to the darker space.
This is the magic of plants. While it’s easiest to see with dark walls in photographs, this principle applies to small rooms, unlit corners, and all kinds of other spaces that just “feel” dark. Life adds light! Continue Reading…
Vines are divine! While many fear that vines will grow out of control, it’s nothing to fear! You can shape and style vines- and vining hanging plants- to create botanical space that is full of prosperous lushness!

The ubiquitous dreamcatcher of a wildly boho home may be perfect for your home, too.
But… what do they do? I always wondered, as I admired them, how they are supposed to “dream catch”.
DreamCatcher.org explains in a vibrant way the meaning and function of the dreamcatcher:
“Native Americans believe that the night air is filled with dreams both good and bad. The dream catcher when hung over or near your bed swinging freely in the air, catches the dreams as they flow by. The good dreams know how to pass through the dream catcher, slipping through the outer holes and slide down the soft feathers so gently that many times the sleeper does not know that he/she is dreaming. The bad dreams not knowing the way get tangled in the dream catcher and perish with the first light of the new day.”

When I was a kid, I would take books to my blanket forts to read them. When I was a little older, I would take them to the yard and sit on a lounge chair. Older still, I would find a bench in the park in New York to read in the Fall. There was something about escaping into a book that was uniquely appealing, and I had no real space to do it in my childhood home.
Years later I realized I needed to make space.
If you don’t have space at home to read a book, reading can be a forgotten art. With that forgotten art a lot of fantasy and inagination is also lost.
Let’s get it back!
Style yourself an extraordinary reading space today! Continue Reading…
The above is quite collossal design that is drenched with personality yet as minimalistic as can be! This is the Paris apartment I’m after… but for now, let’s focus on the shining star of the room: the chandelier. If you want to really alter a space for the better, add a spectacular chandelier.
