Today, I’m feeling pastel.  There’s been a lot of extreme energy flying around. It’s finally come to a bliss point.  I think Mercury Retrograde lived up to it’s fabled chaos powers in the last three weeks, despite how much I love this time of year historically.   Lots of loud, lots of hot, lots of bright, lots of bubbling up.

Tons of color and action are the greatness of life as long as they’re counterbalanced with calm.

If you’ve been in a time of heat and action, or groundswells of emotion, I am right there with you.

It’s times like these that I trade intensive colors for pastels. From my plates to my dresses, from purses to  pillows… pastels are peace.   Continue Reading…

When it’s raining, the sun comes out in my house. And a serape- my prized big blue and rainbow hand woven Mexican blanket- takes center stage to bring the light back into life!

You can add a serape to almost any everyday decor- from the starkest minimalism to the love of lush and layered.  They can be rugs, bedspreads, even table-runners, curtains, and pillows.  My dogs love ’em as blankets.  And my orange leather sofa loves ’em too.

If you’re looking to inspire a room and add fresh rainbows of colorized energy, a serape can be perfection. Continue Reading…

To know me is to know I love living with less… but I don’t love blank, cold minimalism.  A space that’s just empty is not an empowered space.  There’s a difference between a clutter-free, spacious environment and an empty space devoid of feeling.

My own home is very white, but sprinkled with big pops of color and very exciting bookshelves and aromatherapy and music and crystals and more.

That was a big lesson for me: minimalism, even the starkest of spaces, does not mean that there’s an absence of sensory richness.  In fact, in spaces where you are living with much less, layers of fragrance, texture and even music will create a massively empowering environment! Continue Reading…

Cosmic & Calm Decor Mixes

The above bedding is cosmic beyond belief, not unlike the reasl images NASA publishes every day, believe it or not.  I’ve always found it strange that we humans tend to believe at large that we are the center of the universe, but space itself is so vast it’s humbling to a fault to see just how infinite space actually is…

The cosmic just highlights the unlimited. The  vast. The reasons to feel enchanted every day while still feeling present on the Earth.

Decor that manages to stay grounded and also space age at once is the very best of all worlds.  Here’s some feng shui’d inspiration to shine like stars and keep your feet firmly planted on our planet to do the most we can for humanity as a whole every day in our on ways!   Continue Reading…

Stunning.

That’s what you should think when you walk toward your workspace.

Anything less is cheating yourself of a lot of power.

Stunning doesn’t need to be elaborate, intensely decorated or even typical.

It can be a piece of art, streaming light or a stack of books in a simple, clear space.

It can be a single amazing piece of furniture, a lovely lamp or a hunk of crystal in the corner of a desk made with planks.

Here’s some minimalist & maximum gorgeous space to inspire your own.  After all, making room for the new never fails to be amazing.   Continue Reading…

Layer On The Boho Fabric Inspiration!

The bohemian vibe is so popular…and I really feel it’s because it helps us all feel more creative.  The punctuation marks of earthy material, the richness of textures and the flowing fabrics all create a sense of bliss in a space.

From framed scarves to walls blanketed in fabric, the boho in textile takes center stage today.  Just a little can go a long way in re-vamping rooms that are longing for spirited love.  Continue Reading…
