Let Color Rule Your Room

Ok color, do your thing! Lol, seriously though, why don’t we let color make a statement in the room instead of the decor for a change? Sure the two work together but since your wall space is the biggest part of your room, let it rule!

Let Color Rule Your Room

Why work harder? Your walls make up 90% of your room space, put it to good use with color.

I don’t know about you but I think it’s time to change up the look of Sea Salt.

Selling or Updating Your Home? This Hottest Flooring Trend Will Be the Dealbreaker

I am currently putting in new flooring in my home. So many homeowners are gravitating towards the vinyl planking. It looks like wood, is waterproof, goes right over existing tile or wood and is great if you have pets. I’m watching the homes on my block that are for sale that have 12×12 tile in the kitchen and standard Gunstock engineered wood in the LR with some carpet and guess what? It’s not selling! The home across the street who put in GORGEOUS vinyl planks throughout – sold in a NY second. Everyone things that wood is the best but it’s not! Since most homeowners have dogs, it scratches and is a BIG problem if fido has an accident. Vinyl plank flooring – the flooring to have in the home and I can’t wait to get mine next week!

What Is A Healing Room?

I love that today we are seeing more and more people turning to the holistic approach for healing – and that’s self healing by the way. They are dropping the pills and looking into teas, exercise, crystals, yoga, essential oils, CDB oil if you find relief in that and one of my favorite ways to find healing, in color.

The things that we see and filter through our mind, and this is called intention, can be very strong. Come see how some colors will get your on the road to emotional, physical and spiritual healing.

Colors That Heal

There is nothing like staring at a soft light blue that reminds us of a day at the beach. Color, heals through memories and intentions.

Getting Back To Basics: Tap Into What YOU Love

Yes this is me getting silly and as basic as I get. Our homes should also contain the things that we love and all that feels good to us even it it means tapping into your silly self – to a certain extent of course. If you’re about to choose flooring for your home, that is a really big and expensive decision. I’m in the process of choosing flooring for ALL of my home – talk about stress right? Come here how I’m going about it, the basics of course.
