NO MAN IS AN ISLAND -
AND NEITHER IS YOUR SOFA!
VIEWING THINGS IN ISOLATION IS
THE NUMBER ONE MISTAKE
PEOPLE MAKE IN DESIGN…..AND IN LIFE!
LIFE IS LIKE CAKE....
Layers and layers of yummy ingredients go into making it delicious. But before you start baking you have to think about the end result, the big picture.
You have to think about the ingredients and how they will work together, the timing of blending them, what equipment and utensils you’ll you need? What temperature should you set the oven? Do you need to preheat it?
And of course the decorations! You even think about the time of year. Do you make a spice cake or a strawberry cake? Who are you going to serve it to and on what type of plates, napkins and table decor?
Lots of planning, thinking, and feeling goes into this apparently simple task of baking a cake! You’re not going to grab a stick of butter, just because you like butter and throw it in a bowl of flour because you know you need flour and say you’ve created a “Cake”.
NO! Of course not!
Well, that’s how it works with interior design too! It takes time and planning with a big picture perspective to make it beautiful. I spend a lot of quality time with my clients asking exploratory questions about their likes and dislikes and most importantly, their goals for the space before I even start thinking about a design.
Years of experience have taught me that design can have a major impact on people’s quality of life, so I really take my time to understand what my client really wants from the space on a deeper level.
After witnessing the life-changing effects my designs were having, I developed a very different approach to design, one that uses the power of the Law of Attraction to manifest my clients' desires.
We all know that color, texture, and space evoke powerful emotions, right? And we all know that everything vibrates, right? Well, my program uses all the elements of design to get you vibrating on the right frequency. Design that puts you in vibrational alignment with the Universe. But first, you need to set your intentions and have a clear vision of what you really want.
Now, you know yourself better than anybody, right! So, you’re way ahead of the game! You don’t need a designer!! I know you can do this yourself!
Spend some quality time with yourself, your partner and other family members to think about your big picture vision for the space and your life. Do this before you start randomly selecting things just because you like them, or they’re trendy!
Visualize how you imagine your dream life in your ideal home. Don't worry about money or anyone else's opinion. You are creating a space that represents your dreams and desires. Through this design, those dreams and desires will manifest themselves, SO DREAM BIG!
Write a little movie script where you are the star of the show. Describe in great detail the elements in the movie. Describe the furniture, the lighting, what you'll wear when you live in the space. What does your hair look like? What type of food do you eat? Really, really set your mind free!
FREE YOUR MIND - THE REST WILL FOLLOW!
It might seem like a lot of work and not very designry, but honestly, it’s going to be easy because you already know this stuff! AND IT WORKS!
You know YOU! It’s just a matter of slowing down, just for a little while and having confidence in yourself to trust that you can do it!
You can change your life with design!
YOU CAN DO IT! YOU DESERVE IT!
THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN’T DO, BE OR HAVE WHEN YOU ARE IN VIBRATIONAL ALIGNMENT.
