It’s been studied and proven that our brains tend to love curved lines.  Circles, ovals, swooping non-angular forms… all loaded with exciting, springing bliss.  While it’s far easier to find furniture with typical geometric straight lines and angles, throwing in a curve will make a room memorable and far more magnetic!  Continue Reading…

floor pillows

plum color,  justina blakeney

(my design hero, Justina Blakeney)

Plumb is rare and fantastic.  How often do you see any shade of purple- from fig to deep grapes- anywhere? Look around you.  Is anything violet or even magenta?

Because of its rarified power in color psychology I think we see less purple than other shades as a function of practicality.  Purples can seperate you front others, elevating your uniqueness, enhancing spirituality, creating a sense of heightened awareness.  To be a bit metaphysical for a moment, purple is the color that resonates with the crown chakra, the energy center of the body located “over” your head that essentally lights up your whole being.

Cool stuff… but all stuff that isn’t an easy sell to the world at large.

I for one am a fan of integrating plum and grape and fig in places where it makes a vibrant impact.  Like this plum ceiling from Justina Blakeney that seems to make the whole bedroom above almost levitate!

Here’s a little plum-spiration to expand your sense of possibility with the color that can lift your world higher! Continue Reading…
