I’ve always believed in the significance of the rooms we inhabit. The best spaces nurture, sooth and support our relationships, work, hobbies and family life.
Our home does more than tell our story, it provides a welcome and much needed respite from the coarse reality of modern life.
Providing shelter is the most basic function of our home, but as we contend with climate change, political instability, stock market volatility and a pandemic virus, we need a lot more from our home.
When you’re hunkered down at home, ask yourself if your home is working for you. How can it better suit your needs and support the details of your life? With a few tweaks and adjustments, your home can be a source of happiness and comfort as you weather the stresses of daily life.
Aside from the usual catching up on paperwork and mindless online shopping, I’ve been thinking about spring.
I’ve been looking at outdoor fabrics for a client’s patio redo; there are so many pretty, fun and practical outdoor fabrics — they’ve come a long way in the past few years and many people are using them indoors too. Looking forward to summer makes me feel optimistic and reminds me that this too shall pass.
I also made sure to pick up some flowers, something I often do as part of taking care of myself and my family. They immediately remind me that there is so much good in the world.
We also have a special place near the window that is extra cozy. We read or just relax alone or with our dogs because there’s no place like home.
Make self-care your mantra, and create a comfortable, nurturing home to set the stage for taking care of yourself and your loved ones in a way that only home can do. We’ll get through this!
