Hi Friends! Today we are talking about Connected Living.
I Have a question for you:
Do you feel like you are connected to your home? What I mean is, when you walk into your home, do you feel at ease ?
Sadly, the answer from most of my Intentional interior design clients is “No”.
Believe me, I totally get this. For YEARS ( I mean YEARS) we lived in a rental in New York, and I HATED our space. It was dark, and drab, and messy. And because I wasn’t connected to it, it remained dark, and drab and messy. Can you relate? Luckily, once we moved to Nashville, and my focus switched to connected living, I began making small, easy, DO-ABLE, changes to my own space and to my clients spaces.
Today I am sharing (3) easy steps to connect more fully to your space! These are actionable steps that you can take today! These are the precise steps I take with my clients, who want desperately to connect more fully to their space, but just dont know where to start!
Click the video below, to watch the (3) steps to a more connected home!!
- Make a connection with connection! – in other words, ask yourself what connection means to you. Do you have a space that you already connect to? If so, which parts do you connect to.
2. Create Connection by taking Action:
A. Clear/Clear/Clear!! –
Take everything out of the room you want to connect more fully to! I know this seems like a big job, TRUST ME when I tell you ” ITS WORTH IT”!
B. JOY ONLY- Only Put back in the room, ONLY what you absolutely LOVE!
C. Donate/ Sell/throw away- Everything that is left over, all the things that do not bring you JOY, Donate, sell or throw away!
D. SAGE the space! ( find out how on my Design Thoughts Facebook Group– Under “Files”.) You have know clear the space of clutter, now clear the energy!
3. Begin to add Layers of meaning!-
Add Life! Even just one plant makes a HUGE difference in the energy of a space, it literally “CLEAR THE AIR”. Next, add memories! What makes you happy? remember back to a time that you felt the most peaceful, joyful, relaxed, invigorated….whatever emotion it is you are hoping to create, connect a memory to it, and add in photos, or maps or colors from that memory!
Let me know if these steps work for you!! Simple, changes, can make a huge impact on your space!!!
