Color is the New Neutral

I’m noticing a disturbing trend lately… I think it’s been going on for a while now and I just haven’t noticed, but an alarming number of homes are filled with absolutely horrible poo colored brown couches. Please. Stop this behavior immediately. Be better than a poo brown couch. I’m not really sure how anyone can look at that and think that it’s a good choice, forget trying to figure out why a furniture company would even offer it as an option. Ugh. Maybe poo brown is supposed to be neutral? Maybe not. The great news is that these days, in design…

Front Door Refresh Ideas ~ Wreaths, Door Knockers, and Door Mats Galore

I always love walking up to someone’s door and seeing a beautiful wreath, or a great door knocker. Doors and entryways don’t always get the love and attention that they deserve. They are people’s first physical interaction with your home, it’s a great chance to make a warm, welcoming first impression. There are a few simple elements to having a strong, statement making and memorable entrance. A solid door in a great color makes a strong foundation, and entry lights are the perfect frame. But the fun finishing touches are a great door knocker, and a fun door mat and…

{someone hates me} I’ve finally made it!

I think I experienced a significant milestone on the blog last week, my first hate comment. It was so exciting! What made it even more amazing was that it was a comment on my post about meditation. Seriously. Not super zen. In that very post that elicited such a strong response I talked about growing up a serious people-pleaser. For most of my life I sought validation from making other people happy, and I felt wrong and like I wasn’t enough if someone was unhappy with me, like I’d failed as a person somehow. I grew up and went into a creative profession,…

Maybe you’ve never thought about meditation… but maybe you should!

  I don’t usually advertise events here, and I’d be perfectly happy keeping my meditation school my own little magical secret, but this place is pretty awesome, and so if you were ever thinking about maybe checking out a meditation class – this is the one to take. InVision is offering their signature Psychic Meditation Class for the last time this year starting this week. I started to write some of my own story to share what a profound impact it has had on my life. But then it got really long. So I’ll save that for some other, maybe a few other,…

The magic of a little, or a lot

I really listen to my intuition… all the time and for pretty much everything. Both for myself and when I’m working with clients on different projects. Having that kind of communication and knowingness is really magical and makes pretty much everything more validating and awesome. Nothing like being able to really tune into what’s right for you, or someone else, to create just the perfect thing in any given moment. Today I was getting frustrated because I couldn’t decide what I wanted to eat for dinner, and there’s nothing I like less these days than indecision or uncertainty. Never validating….

the beauty in failure

This week I took a few days off for a mini stay-cation. I have so much going on that I just needed a break… from my day job, from running around to a million different things, from the endless challenges involved with being in the middle of construction… from everything really… to take a breath, relax… I also just started taking a new class on Creating Abundance and our “homework” for the week was to have some fun. I realized in talking to some different people that there are definitely different ideas of what fun is. For some people it’s…
