Romancing your home
Do you remember the first day you fell in love with your home? Walking through it you just "knew" that THIS was it. This was the place you could imagine creating a life in. You imagined kids playing in the back yard, you could see yourself cooking in the kitchen, celebrating holidays in the living room. It held some magic for you, something made you fall in love at first sight.
Maybe it was the closet that could finally fit all your clothes or the master bathroom that made you feel relaxed. Whatever "it" was, the overall feel of the house spoke to you and resonated with you in some way that made you want to make it yours. This was the beginning of a beautiful relationship.
Time has passed and you have decorated, made repairs, cleaned, and kept up and it's not uncommon to take it for granted. Your home is shelter, it's comfort and so much more. It's an expression of who you are. It gets messy when you're stressed or sick. It celebrates with you on the holidays. It welcomes friends and most importantly it supports you.
How does your home support you? It supports you with the colors, styles, textures, furniture, accessories. It tells your story. It supports you by how it makes you feel. If you have a good relationship with your home, it makes you feel hugged every time you walk through the door. When you don't have a good relationship with your home, it drains your energy. You will find excuses to go out. You will avoid rooms altogether because being in them drains your energy.
Now that we are all sheltered in place, we are looking around our homes. What's working, what isn't? It's time to start romancing your home again. Like all relationships, they take time, attention, in short, effort to keep it alive.
There are ways that go beyond cleaning and repairs that your home can support you at this time. Our homes are being used in ways that they weren't a few weeks ago. You may need to rearrange things to create offices or school rooms or just find a moment of peace by yourself. I have worked from home for over 15 years. It's a big change from being in an office. There are tricks to make it possible and enjoyable. There are things that can be done to help you make your home work better for you right now.
Your home is an extension of you. When it reflects your own unique style, you feel more real, more empowered, more yourself than ever before. Imagine how you feel in your favorite outfit. What if your home could make you feel like that every day? One of the questions I often receive is "what's my style? I know what I like but I don't know what my style is". That's one of the things I help you discover when you work with me. I help you discover your style and I explain the elements that make you feel more alive.
What's Color Got to do with it? EVERYTHING. Color affects your mood, how you feel, what you think, whether or not you feel safe or even how hungry you are. Color affects every aspect of your life and most people are not aware of its power. Right now it can have a huge impact on how we weather this storm. Using color to create calm, to create a more authentic you will allow you to come out of this stronger than ever.
