Fall is around the corner and this year the colors are bolder than ever! Instead of going with traditional colors of bright orange and black for Halloween and brown and orange for Fall decor, this is a year to try something new and break out from the old colors.
Let me show you a couple of ideas!
Pump up the energy in your home with jewel tone colors this Fall, including golden mustard, tangerine orange and fuchsia pink! This fun twist from traditional colors, brings a vibrant burst of energy into your home, announcing that the holidays are coming and you are ready to party.
BONUS: If you're someone who is affected by the changing of the seasons, when skies get gray, the weather turns cold and daylight grows shorter, these juicy full of life colors are sure to brighten your home and your spirit!
Here's a few examples of how you can easily add these colors without redoing your entire home. They can be changed seasonally and are budget friendly.
First up, pillows and...
Welcome back to a peek into the rooms that I'm decorating for my clients. My work as an Interior Designer is a bit different as it's completely unique in being tailored to you as I use my psychic intuitive abilities to tune into what design works best for you!
This is because I'm an Intuitive Interior Decorator. This means that I see the energy field known as the aura around people, places and nature and I psychically see the colors, style and energy that will work best in your home.
My intuitive interior designs are truly bespoke, renowned for capturing the spirit of both the room and your personal style. I intuitively tap into the energy of the home and read the aura of you, your partner, your children and other family members in order to create sacred space, using distinctive color and energy flow designs for each room that reflect your heart and soul in a personal and empowering manner.
Because of my intuitive abilities to see who you are at a soul level, I...
Having a home that is uniquely decorated for you and who you are at the mind body spirit level brings a whole new level of what interior décor can do for each of us. Home is our sacred space. It is our sanctuary, and it should reflect how we think and feel and love.
The intention of interior design is to bring harmony between people and their homes. In traditional feng shui, one of the most important "cures" (a correction to adjust the energy in a space) is to restore order by the removal of clutter and negative energy from the home. This allows positive energy (chi) to circulate fully throughout the room.
By removing overwhelming stimuli (clutter) a more peaceful environment is created. Removing clutter is very beneficial, but that's just the first step of the process.
Maybe you're not ready to redecorate your home on a big scale, but you can start with one room or closet that will make a big difference. An easy way to do this is to declutter! If you have a walk in...
We all have that one room in our home that we wish could be different. Maybe the room is too small, too dark, too something that's just not right. In my current home, it's the guest bathroom. It's small and shaped at an odd angle. You can get in there to do what you need to do, but there's nothing fun or relaxing about it.
There's not much that can be done with this space, it's squeezed into an area where there's no room to expand the walls ,so there are serious limits to what can be done.
The most apparent problem in this space is what greets you when you walk into it, which is the very old, outdated wallpaper. You know it's old when you see it, for several reasons, first, wallpaper has been out of style for over two decades and is only making a comeback now and second, it has the trademarked look of 90's wallpaper, which means, it's not just wallpaper, it also has a wallpaper border on top of the wallpaper.
Let's take a look at the bathroom: (Before)
Sometimes you get...
Basically, it's a hidden space in your home that can't easily be detected when walking into a room. In the grand old mansions of the past, these rooms were designed and built into the homes by the architects. Many were elaborate with hidden hallways built into the walls that allowed the homeowners to move through these areas without being detected in the public rooms of the home. Hidden panels were part of the design, often with the pulls connected to a decorative item on a fireplace or on a specific book on the bookcase in the library that would be pulled out in order to open the doorway and allow access to enter the hidden room or passageway.
I've always loved this design and growing up I would watch the old black and white movies that would show these homes where people would appear out of nowhere or escape down into the secret laboratory tucked away. Whether it's the wardrobe door in Chronicles of Narnia, the platform 9 3/4 in Harry...
In today's homes, you'll find many lighting sources made from Alabaster. While not all are aware of the metaphysical properties of this stone, it's easy to see how it makes for a gorgeous light source in home and commercial property decor.
The metaphysical properties of this stone attract positive energy. You can also ask the stone to help release negative energy away from you and your home.
Alabaster is a good stone to "touch". It's very soft and smooth and it can "carry" your worries and concerns away, removing them from your aura.
In my Master Bedroom, I have these gorgeous alabaster lamps on each side of the bed. The manufacturer really understood how to work with this stone. The lamp has a second bulb embedded into the stone, lighting it from within. This detail creates the symbolic master teaching from the ancient wisdom temples of "As Above, So Below", As Within, So Without".
This is an incredible energy to create in...
One of the easiest ways to decorate for Fall, is to gather all of your fall decor together and concentrate it in one area to create a stunning display.
Too often when decorating, people feel the need to spread holiday decor all around the house, making sure everything everywhere gets a bit of Christmas or a bit of well, any holiday. While this does indeed show a sampling of the decor everywhere you look, it might not give the desired effect that you were hoping to create.
Decor items, like collections, are best viewed when grouped together so that the feeling and expression can be experienced and enjoyed. Think of it like a Thanksgiving dinner or buffet. Imagine coming to Thanksgiving and seeing the beautiful table covered with all of your favorite foods, the turkey, the stuffing, cranberries, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, squash, green beans, rolls, the list goes on, but you get the picture right? It's a feast for the eyes and the appetite!
Now imagine instead if you walked into...
When decorating for Fall, I've always loved decorating the fireplace the most!
The mantel is such a perfect place to display the brilliant colors of the season with brightly colored garlands of leaves, adding ribbon to the mix along with pine cones, acorns, nuts and berries.
It reflects the season, the gorgeous turning of the leaves and brings the look and feel of nature inside. This is especially important to do when living in a place where the natural look of Fall is not immediately apparent outside, due to lack of trees in the city or when living in an area that doesn't reflect the four seasons, such as a sub-tropical environment. The brilliant use of color with the oranges, reds and yellows help welcome us into the mood of the season.
Here's a picture from my library many years ago when I created a Fall scape like this on my fireplace mantel. I had a gorgeous fireplace in this home and it was a joy to decorate it.
Fireplaces are one of the most gorgeous accents one can...
One of my favorite styles in home decor is the warm, classic, comfortably elegant Southern Living style. It encompasses lots of florals, patterns and wonderful color combinations.
Here's a beautiful room that I created recently for a client who loves this style and wanted to incorporate it into her formal living room. Enjoy the journey here as we show the process of how a room changes and evolves into new life!
First, let me explain how I decorate a room. In my work as an Intuitive Interior Decorator, I first psychically scan the room to feel the energy in it. Everything and everyone holds energy, especially houses, where we spend so much of our time and I can feel the energy in each room. As I view a room, the house speaks to me, telling me its story through the energy that is being held in the room. The house also shows me how it would like to look and feel.
As an Intuitive, I can see and feel the aura of the home and the energy that is gathered there. The energy is created...
