  1. Curate a Mindful Space: Create a sense of harmony in your living space by choosing colors, textures, and patterns that resonate with the energy you want in that room. If you need your living space to make you feel calm and centered, stick to a muted color palette that ushers in peace and serenity. If you want your living space to motivate and inspire, use a bright, vibrant color palette to activate your creativity. Mindful selection of furniture and decor can also help with your mental well-being by keeping you organized and free of unnecessary clutter. When you intentionally curate your surroundings, you can invite positivity and peace into your daily life.
  1. Craft a Gallery of Memories: Turn your walls into a gallery of cherished memories, much like the gallery walls and memory boxes showcased in my book, Forever Home. By displaying your family photos, artwork, or mementos from your travels, you are surrounding yourself with visual reminders of love, adventure, and personal growth. This practice infuses your space with a sense of belonging and identity. 
  1. Bring the Outdoors In: Incorporate elements from nature to create a soothing atmosphere. Houseplants not only purify the air but also add a touch of tranquility to your home. Natural materials like wooden furniture and stone accents can ground your space and promote a sense of well-being.
  1. Functional Design is Good Design: Embrace the idea of creating functional zones. By defining different areas for various activities, you’re maximizing the functionality of your space and making it adaptable to your needs. Your space should serve you, not the other way around.
