Creating A Spirit Of Place
Through your interest in making where you live truly yours, you can learn thousands of ways to add flair to your rooms.
Everyone has a particular style, even if there is no name for it. If our spaces are an outer reflection of our inner spirit, what could be more important than to concentrate vital energy toward infusing our spaces with our own style and sensibility.
The clothes you wear , the books you read, the company you keep, your manners and habits where you travel, your thoughts, disposition and temperament all work together to create your personal style.
Never let yourself be persuaded into a certain look, thinking you’ll grow to like it. Follow your eye and heart and don’t get talked into anything. Everyone is insecure to a degree about their personal tastes but you need to get beyond this insecurity so that your rooms will be authentically you. With this integrity, you can experiment as your tastes and style evolve.
