So, what is “Living In Perfect Harmony” all about? Is this site just to teach about Vastu Shastra? Feng Shui?
Yes, both of these philosophies will be integrated in my plan. However, they are only springboards of knowledge that reinforced what I already intuitively knew.
Let me explain…
As a young girl I felt pretty weird. Quirky if you will. You see I loved nothing more than to constantly redecorate my bedroom I shared with my sister Mary Ann. I did this almost every season and it brought me all kinds of joy.
Maybe because I shared a room with her I had to find some way to make my part of the space unique.
Over the years of living together there were many, many battles and we would create invisible lines of demarcation in our room that kept each other out. Funny, my bed was on the opposite side of the room from my closet. It was the same for Mary Ann. Poor planning I guess! So, we had to devise special rules of when we could cross these invisible lines of demarcation in order to dress for school, church, or activities each day.
By the way- if you know Mary Ann, ask her about my turtle!!!
Anyway, I soon realized I loved positioning things in my bedroom and even throughout my family home.
Next, I obsessed over the homes of my girlfriends. Some I offered my suggestions to and others I just ruminated over in my head all the changes that needed to occur in these spaces without ever saying a word. Suffice it to say; to this day I remember in vivid detail most of the homes of my friends I grew up with.
I never forget detail.
The art of picture hanging and other musings.
Flash forward many years and I soon learned I had developed quirky hobbies as well. My greatest joys came when I walked or drove through neighborhoods at night and nonchalantly peered into windows (from the road mind you, I am not a voyeur) and recreated the interiors I would see. My, my, my- so many houses needed work! Do you know how many pictures are hung too high? Do you know how many are hung in the wrong place?
Before long I was focusing on the yards in the daylight hours. So much work to be done there, too! My obsession was growing- what about the back yard? What about the window treatments or lack thereof (so many people leave the garage windows untreated and all you see is the mess and clutter of the garage)?
The Energy of the Home
All this time I began to understand that there were vibes I felt from these homes. I could feel them.
After abrupt changes in my personal life occurred (what I call trauma-drama), I set out to start a new company. I partnered with my daughter, Sammi. I did the decorating and design and she took care of the business side of things. (Anyone that knows me knows I have lousy math skills!)
I began to realize something more was going on in the spaces I helped flower. On the surface I was changing colors, changing fabrics and updating the look. But way down underneath all this I was doing much, much more. With every subtle change I was incorporating into the plan, the rhythm and flow of the house began to change. I began to “feel” the shift in the energy. Homespaces and workspaces became more balanced and relaxed. I could absolutely feel it.
Today I am a “know it all” just waiting to teach. It is my mission. It is my passion. It is my calling. Prepare to be taught.
Your homespace is a window to your soul.
