Design/Décor

So, how does life coaching affect design or décor? House or Home? How do your surroundings make you Feel?…
It actually provides a mindful palette to work from, while consulting or creating a beautiful space!  It allow me to  apply techniques that help guide my clients to find the most restful/healing or productive outcome. I’m able to look at colour from several different facets including: energy, colour theories, or colour interplay.
Colour can literally affect our moods, or heal us. Each colour has a different wave length, and depending on how our eyes perceive light, it helps us see each one differently.  Depending on our preferences and experiences too, those same colours can have a positive or negative reaction for us.
The process in decorating can vary.  At times, it will include downsizing or organizing a space first. Other times, it’s just helping my customers and clients reconfigure what they already have.  Lately, I’ve discovered that single parents are calling upon my decorating services to help “warm up” their place, or to make it more “homey.”  Showing them techniques to stay organized, or how to do an inexpensive “interior re-design” with sometimes just paint, or a few feng shui adjustments in furniture placement. Small steps can really be helpful.

~  This customer originally hired me to organize her husband’s office, after he passed away. That eventually led to decorating and organizing other spaces.  Here, we organized many boxes/items from her parents. As you can see, they kept getting shoved into the spare bedroom, as well as having overflow in a storage unit…
After a long process of sorting, purging and putting away; we then decorated.  Her contractor painted; and we had the chair reupholstered from a dark burgundy, to a soft buttery yellow in order to highlight the warm tones in the wood. We also discovered she already had an antique matelassé bedspread and lace bed skirt; so we made sure to use them…The end result was a restful retreat, highlighting her parents heirloom bedroom set from Italy.

~ Another client in Bellevue, had 100 years of photographs & memorabilia from their parents & husband’s family in both a storage unit & house. (It’s very common to put things away after a death, with the idea of going through it later.) The family was overwhelmed, and honestly most of them wanted to throw it all out, at first…Over a year later, with LOTS of work, these were turned into several volumes of scrapbooks (each with a color coded table-of-contents & a main index), framed photos, shadow boxes, etc.
Afterwords, the family marveled at what took place. The scrapbooks held testimonies of international travel, the history of the farmland their parents owned when they came to America, and community service & military accomplishments published in old newspapers we found. They realized that a part of their heritage/legacy could have been lost forever. As well, these scrapbooks came in handy when a local restaurant/hotel sought out vintage photos.
