EVERY MORNING ☀️ I do the five minute fluff.

EVERY MORNING ☀️ I do the five minute fluff. 

I do it because surrounding myself with beauty daily is a non negotiable for me. 

But I also do it because in Bali they practice space clearing which is a practice of bringing and then keeping the highest vibrating energy into your space. The high vibe life is also a non negotiable for me. I turn off electronics I'm not using. I take out trash. I light incense or burn a candle. And I feel connected and grounded into my souls passion and purpose.

I'm always the one that my friends are like OMG when can you come over?! We're putting everything back since our kitchen remodel and everything is a mess.  

And for some reason I always say, I want to help you sort all that stuff out!

THE INNER HOUSEKEEPER inside of me just can't deal knowing someones house isn't in not only perfect working order but it also drop dead gorgeous in the process.  

MAKE THE MOST OF WHAT YOU HAVE

MAKE THE MOST OF WHAT YOU HAVE

I’ve heard from you that you’re not in your “dream home” yet. 

I’ve heard from you that you don’t like the way your room (bedroom, living, kitchen, bath, etc) is but you don’t know where to start and since you’re not in your dream home why bother doing anything. 

 

This utter defeat is not the attitude that my mom and I had when I was growing up.  We always made the most of what we had. 

EUROPEANS KNOW HOW TO DECORATE, Americans Don’t.

EUROPEANS KNOW HOW TO DECORATE,

Americans Don’t.

 

Look it’s true. This may be harsh to hear. But it’s true.

 

I learned this concept when I began my career as an interior designer almost 20 years ago. I remember a conversation with my mentor about how us designers would not be in as high demand if we lived in Eurore because they’re more inclinded to be creative with their homes then Americans. Her time spent at her second house in France made all of these really clear.

THE AMOUNT OF TIMES I'VE HEARD THIS

THE AMOUNT OF TIMES I'VE HEARD THIS

THE AMOUNT OF TIMES I'VE HEARD THIS, along with defeat in their voice, has always broken my heart.  

I've heard this again and again and again during the 20 years I've worked in my industry as an interior designer, "you're work must be so fun!!  I wish I could have you over to my house!  But I could never afford you."

And I always want to shake them, to tell them, NO!   So much is possible!
