The other day I was at a friend’s house and was drawn from one room to the next by the energy and beauty of the home. If you have ever walked into a home and experienced this feeling – or into a garden that was so beautiful and restful that you did not want to leave – you have experienced the essence of a Graceful Space. It is a place infused with the energy of the occupants and those that created it; accomplished by thoughtful design and decorating choices that is injected with the inhabitant’s personalities.
This kind of space is attainable by all of us. I realize we don’t all have the skills of Martha Stewart or the resources of Bill Gates. A Graceful Space can be achieved in the smallest dwelling on the most limited budget. You just need to invest some time in discovering your style. Whether working with a designer or working it on your own, creating a space like this simply needs to be a considered reflection of your personality.
My wish for you is that you live like a sybarite – a person devoted to luxury and pleasure. Don’t change your life, change how you live it.
