The simplest feng shui ever starts with connecting to your space. TAO means CONNECTION. And whether you connect to objects from your actual home or to objects that remind you of the place you feel most at home (i.e.- bookshelves if you are at home in the library, the beach if your most fond memories were at the shore, etc, etc) you have more TAO. And that means more power, abundance and creative self-actualization.
Today I pulled together some inspiration that looks a lot like my childhood house in New Jersey and more is to come! I am so excited to share pictures soon of my actual childhood home, mixed with how I’ve created that feeling in my home in many ways today. It’s a 70’s remix! Like the giant antique rug with white sofas- the classic look of my Jersey living room.
Do you know what reminds you of home? Continue Reading…
This is an easy one to keep in your repertoire of stay-well goodies as the seasons change.
Stay Well Tonic
- 1 TB Cider Vinegar (*I do raw, the unpasturized one, but any will do)
- 1 TB Honey (*can be raw or regular, just make sure its real honey, there have been reports about some honey not actually being honey lately, but mixed with corn syrup, etc)
- a few strong shakes of cayenne pepper
- 1 lemon, juiced.
Mix it all up in a mug and add near-boiling water.
If you are a fan of drinking hot water and lemon in the morning, this is a nice switch that harkens back to the master cleanse but with much more potent kick of the apple cider vinegar. Surprisingly, though, I find it very drinkable.
Tip: if you drink it slowly, keep a spoon nearby to keep stirring or your last sips with be all cayenne pepper!
Every time I drink it, especially if I feel allergic or a sore throat, I feel 100% better!!! I hope you do, too! Enjoy! xoxo Dana
I like to widen the scope of possibilities, especially where homes are concerned. You don’t need to remodel or even to re-decorate to live in a space that looks and feels more… done. More custom. More elevated.
All it takes are some smart moves. Like perhaps a little “real house rug” in the bathroom… Or some painted shelves… or other gorgeous stuff that rounds-up into the design inspiration of the day!!! Continue Reading…

Einstein knew the power of clearing clutter, streamlining and simplifying.
There are all kinds of thinkers that echo the sentiment of simplicity. I love the idea from Seth Godin that if you can’t state your position in 8 words than you don’t have a position. Even too many words are clutter.
Simplicity has less flourish and more direction. A space and life free of clutter has a deeper sense of purpose that can flow though without meeting static.
Your mess can be your opportunity to grow!!!
