Ironically this request fell on a very tough day for me, but life is not all about beautiful things and fairytales. No, with every good day there are several bad days to go with it.
Sometimes life can hit you right in the stomach and knock the wind out of you. My best friend Margaret gave me some simple but very wise advice that is my mantra for the day...."just breath"
So I turning to the climax of a few movies for inspiration, I discovered there are many different kinds of breaths.
"The Anxious Breath"...
"The Passionate Breath"
"The Thrilling Breath"
The Seven Year Itch
"The Forgiving Breath"
Whatever type of breath you take today, don't forget to exhale...
"The Erotic Exhale"
When Harry Met Sally
My conclusion....maybe movies are NOT the best source for direction when it comes to staying calm and collected. How about we take another shot...
Here are a few different approaches to finding that "ahhhh" moment in your home...
light walls + light floors + light furniture
soft materials + dark walls + white floors
varying heights + white walls + dark floors + neutral accents
warm colors + mixing textures + unexpected forms
flattering pink undertones + soft textiles + dramatic metal accents
dark textiles + intricate details + monochromatic color scheme
architectural detail + natural color scheme + dark and light contrast
A little zen for you all in this chaotic world!
