How Colour Affect The Body

When coloured light enters the body it affects the major glands of the endocrine system-the pituitary- which controls the hormones released by the endocrine glands.

These regulate many bodily functions, including energy levels, metabolism, appetite, sexual drive, growth and sleep.

Exposure to red light, for example, stimulates the heart and circulation and also releases adrenaline which stimulate appetite an creativity.

Surround yourself with reds, and you will never relax.

Yellow stimulates the brainwaves and can make you feel mentally alert and positive.

Blue relates to the throat and thyroid glands, and is a color that soothes and calm.

Color can be used to bring about physical, mental and emotional balance.

Also remember that our choice of colours, both in terms of our clothes and our home, very powerfully communicate just what we are about and how we feel.

Key words for colours:

  • Purple/Violet: noble, mystical, intuitive
  • Red: stimulates activities, impatience, visor
  • Pink: nurturing, calming
  • Orange: joy, courage, happiness, conversation, digestion
  • Yellow: focus, uplifting, vitality, reduces tension
  • Green: healing, harmony, abundance, growth, balance
  • Blue: calm, peace, inspiration, reflection
  • Brown: earthiness, grounding, stable
  • White: purity, innocence, openness, cleanliness
  • Black: mystery, power, strength, depth
2021: The Rise of Traditional Comfort.

2021: The Rise of Traditional Comfort.

In uncertain times people tend to look for more security in their spaces. And the familiarity of Traditional and Classic design elements is truly an antidote for uncertainty!
This could also be reflective of the fact that so many people are moving away from urban spaces to more traditional suburban or rural homes.
Some decor items that bring instant traditional comfort to our living space are: slipcovers sofas, traditional patterns & functionality. Experts agree that these will be on top of our list for home decor during 2021.
From Feng Shui stand, keep in mind, the most auspicious directions to focus on this year are: EAST, WEST, NORTHWEST & SOUTHWEST. Decorate these sections of your house with the most supportive colours for 2021: shades of GREY, WHITE, BLUE & METALLIC colours. The colours to avoid using in access are : red, orange & yellow.
In all rooms of the house, the centre is the most important section of the house in 2021. Locate the centre of the house, as well, pay attention to the centres of each room, making sure these areas are kept tidy & in good repair order, to encourage the positive life energy to flourish throughout the house.


A Great Way to Start Your New Year!
Everything that exists around us consist of vibrating energy, including our homes. While we can revitalize our homes by decorating and cleaning out physical dust & debris that collect over time, there are occasions when work is needed to shift the enemy of our homes.
Space Clearing or Home Harmonizing are great ways to help us make our homes feel better.
If you have ever walked into a room where there has been an argument, you may recall feeling that you could have “cut the atmosphere with a knife”. You cannot see anything but you can sense what has taken place as there is definite uncomfortable feeling about the space. If this is not properly dealt with, it can start to drain our own energy levels, eroding our physical and emotional well-being.
- Whenever you want to make a fresh start and boost the overall energy
- When moving from one home and when setting into a new one
- To improve your luck, attract more money into your life, or draw in a new relationship
- To cleanse any space where you feel you want to clear out other people’s negative energies, maybe after someone has visited , or even when you are staying in a hotel room
- Have a ceremony after somebody has fallen ill for a while, of if there has been a death in the family
- When you can not get yourself motivated to move forward, and feel "stuck"
- Clean & tidy your home
In order to create a real shift in the energy you really do need the physical clearing first. When all the nooks crannies have been dusted and wiped, and all the floors have been vacuumed or swept, you will notice a big difference in the overall atmosphere. Also, turn off all equipment that makes noise. Finally open some windows to help shift the negative energies you want to clear out.
- Set up your equipment
Buy some flowers and candles, smudge sticks or incense, sea or rock salt, lavender or geranium aromatherapy oils, and find a bell and other instruments to make sounds like a drum or a bell.
Arrange all these on a special table that will be the focus of your work.
- The power of air, fire & water elements
Light a sage smudge/incense stick, hold it above a fireproof dish to catch and sparks. Waft the perfumed herbal smoke in a clockwise direction around each room with a feather or your hand. Attentively blow the smoke from the incense stick around the corners of the room.
You can also bring in the water element, by misting a room with water perfumed with a few drops of cleansing aromatherapy oils such as rosemary or lavender
Sea Salt represent the earth element, and can be placed in tiny dishes on the floor in the four corners of house.
- Use sacred sound vibration
Dislodge any stagnant energy with sound. Start at the door, then use your hands to clap around the edges & corners of each room, or use a drum to beat out the vibrations which have become stagnant. If any areas feels heavy, clap or drum louder
by ringing bells, around the edges of each room.
Close your ceremony by sitting quietly, thanking the house, and blessing it for your future.
Cleansing rituals help to raise the quality of the atmosphere in the home in a very subtle way. It is possible to experience a wonderful lightness afterwards, as if someone has made all lights brighter. It gives the house a spiritual vitality that you will find very energizing and upliftings.
When you want to make changes in your life or are hoping that something specific will happen, a cleansing and harmonizing ceremony will certainly help. It enables you to change the vibrations the are hindering you, and allows you to have a clearer space in which to set your intentions.
Buying a Home that Needs Some Work!

Buying a Home that Needs Some Work!

When you’re shopping for a new home, you probably want the property to be as “move in ready” as possible. That way, you can... well... just move in!

However, there are a lot of fantastic properties on the market that need some work.

For example, you might see a home that has everything you need, but the kitchen is long overdue for a renovation. Or, you might view a property that requires a lot of repairs and painting — tasks that, at first glance, seem overwhelming.

You don’t want to just pass on a property that might be a great buy. On the other hand, you don’t want to purchase a home, only to end up with more renovations, repairs and expenses than you anticipated.

What’s the solution?

When you view a home that needs work, make a note of exactly what needs to be done. Stick to the important “must have” improvements and leave “nice to have” improvements for a later time. Chances are, you’ll identify just one or two projects — such as “paint all the walls” or “replace the countertops in the kitchen”.

Once you have that list, you’ll be in a better position to determine how long the work will likely take and the approximate cost. This will give you some needed perspective on whether or not to buy the home.

If a home you’re considering needs $15,000 in work that can probably be completed within two months, that might make the property worth buying. In fact, it probably would!

So, when you see an otherwise ideal home that needs some work, don’t let your imagination make that work into more than it is. Take notes and get estimates.

I am here to answer any question or concerns; feel free to contact me anytime. It is always my pleasure!



If you’re like us, you spend a ton of time in your kitchen-it’s pretty much you’re home’s command centre. So when the heart of your home starts feeling outdated and inefficient, it makes sense to invest in a renovation project. No matter how big or small the job is, here are some dos and don’t that will help along the way.


Buy Your Appliances First

The size of your appliances will directly impact the measurements of your layout, that is why it’s better to choose them before finalizing your design.


Plan Your Lighting Beforehand

You should decide your lighting scheme before the reno starts. If new wiring is needed for your lighting layout, it's much easier to contract an electrician during the Reno phase when drywall is opened up, so backsplash switches and outlets can be added before the cabinet install and tilling.


Be Frugal When It Comes To Your Faucet

Make it a focal point. With your entire Reno budget considered, why skimp on spending an additional $100 or so when that small amount of extra money, in the grand scheme of things, can elevate the look of the entire space.


Upgrade Your Fixtures To Maximize Organization

Who likes messy, disorganized counters? Do yourself a favour and bump the budget up a bit to include things like hidden-away storage for small appliances that aren’t often used.


Get Sucked Into Home-reno Fads

It’s easy to fall head over heels for the latest tile and countertop trends, and stay away from investing in a trendy, big-ticket kitchen item that you could grow tired of within the next few years. These are generally items that are not cheap to replace, so err on the conservative side if you know your taste will likely to change. Instead, have fun with cabinet hardware and paint colours, which are easier and more cost effective to replace.


Tass Your Old Kitchen To The Curb

Avoid the urge to swing  sledge hammer. Take some care during the remove process and donate your cabinets to a charitable centre that will reuse what you’re getting rid of. You get a tax receipt for the donation, and you save the items from ending up in the landfill.




Of all of the rooms in our environment, the bedroom is probably the most important space in regard to our health. One reason is because during sleep our bodies become less guarded as our Chi seeks to rejuvenate & replenish itself. While in this passive state for several hours each night, we become more susceptible to the surrounding Feng Shui of the room. 


If your bedroom is at the long end of a hallway, then you are being bombarded by this constant force of accelerated hallway Chi. This type of arrangement can result in elevated anxiety, heart blood pressure along with other ailments. 


Hang two brass wind chimes from the ceiling a couple of feet from either end of the hallway to bear up the fast Chi flow. Use several small rugs instead of one long runner; do the same with pictures & art pieces staggering them several feet apart to slow down & stabilize the energy.

When in doubt, give me a call. It is my pleasure to assist in every way I can. LIVE WELL!

The Suburban Real Estate Boom Is Only Continuing!

The Suburban Real Estate Boom Is Only Continuing!

What started out looking like a temporary blip might just be a more significant exodus!

The surge in home-buying reflects how drastically the priorities for millions of potential homebuyers have shifted almost overnight. 

Interesting to note that among those considering a home purchase in the next two years, 61% of online survey respondents agreed that COVID-19 has increased their interest in suburban or rural housing.

The need for more space is especially acute for parents, many of whom are trading the now-irrelevant conveniences & amenities of city life for greater outdoor space, closer to nature and better schools.

If you are looking to make a move, let's chat!

I am the real estate broker that goes the distance for you!



Did you know that spiral staircases are one of Feng Shui’s biggest “NO-NO’S”?
You may be surprised by this; but why are the spiral staircases troublesome in any home?
It closely resembles a huge screw, boring down through the floor of your home, which translates into real physical discomfort in your body, which very often manifest in serious health challenges for the occupants.
Here are few Feng Shui adjustments to remedy the situation:
1- To counteract the sense that a screw is boring down into your home, hang a faceted round crystal at the top of the staircase, as close to the centre as possible. The crystal stabilizes the staircase energy, and draws its energy upwards, acting as a balance to the stairs’ strong downward pull.
2- Open risers present yet another Feng Shui challenge for spiral stairs. Chi energy flows right through the stairs without stopping, carrying your energy with it, rather than supporting you as you go up or down the stairs.
Fill the risers (the part of each step that “rises” at the back of each step) and carpet the stairs if possible to give yourself an immediate Chi energy boost.
3- Place a heavy item on the floor next to the first step of the staircase in order to ground the energy and loosen the spiral effect.
Items like: statues, earthy colour vases, or a symbolic rock are great remedies to use.
The best Feng Shui solution to spiral staircases is to avoid them altogether if possible, or at least avoid constructing them in the centre of the house. In feng Shui, the centre represents Health, and you want to promote stability and well being in that area for your great well being!
Predicting Your Future Housing Needs

Predicting Your Future Housing Needs

What will your housing needs be in three to five years? If you can figure that out, you can watch the market, target areas and neighbourhoods you might like to live in, and reap the benefits of planning ahead.

To begin the process, start by asking yourself the following questions:

  • What will my family look like in three to five years? Will there be a new addition (or two) to your family? Will you have kids that are grown up and about to move out? What is the possibility that an elderly relative (Mom, Dad or grandparent) will be living with you?
  • What will change regarding work and school? Will a teenager be off to college? Will you or your spouse be retired? Will someone in your household be starting a home business?
  • How will your lifestyle be different? Will you take up a hobby that you’d like to be able to reach easily (such as golf)? Do you see yourself wanting to live closer to shopping, theatre, walks in the woods, etc.? Will you eventually be traveling more often and, therefore, not be at home as much?
  • How is the neighbourhood changing? Where is it heading relative to your future needs in terms of residents, noise, sense of community, local developments, etc.? Do you see yourself wanting to live in a quieter community, or a more urban centre?
  • Will the type of home you need change? In three to five years, can you see yourself wanting a larger home? Smaller home? More bedrooms? Larger kitchen?
  • What are your dreams? Do you dream of living in a particular area or neighbourhood? Would you love to have a big backyard with a garden someday? Do you sometimes think, “It would be great to have a wooded park with walking trails just a few minutes away.”

By looking three to five years into the future, you will be able to predict your housing needs and make plans - today - to ensure you get what you want in the future.

By working with a professional Real Estate agent like myself, you will move forward with your plan successfully and with confidence.

I look forward to hear from you!



If you really want a modern house, ask yourself what can be stored, what can be removed from view, and what elements are not essential and then organize according to priorities.

If you can use sliding doors, hidden movable constructs to achieve a tidy and clear-lined home design, why not? 

The agile, movable and tidy furniture elements, like barn doors, have become a popular solution to our multifunctioning living space. 

They offer a wide range of options to create that extra space and a cool design element to your home. Here are some great options to choose from: Rustic & Farmhouse style, to Glass & Double door pantry, to Chalkboard doors and even half cupboard sliding doors.

You must return to each room every few months and observe it with new eyes, and be consistent with this process. You will surely find that there is more to simplify. 

If you have any questions, or need a second opinion on any of your decorating projects, just give me a call; always my pleasure to assist in every way I can.

Even if you’re not planning a major renovation in the near future, it's worth learning about the latest trends in house and home design. After all, homes of the future are not reserved to new development projects or exclusive condos towers.
In fact, there’s somewhat of a renovation boom going on right now with older homes, as owners embrace upgrades to their properties with designs and amenities for their own enjoyment and benefits- and to prepare their homes for future homebuyers.
For example, traditional kitchens are being upgraded with convection air fryers, induction cooktops, oversized windows and walkouts to outdoor appliances.
Other trends include wireless security system and electric vehicle charges.
In terms of more significant renovation considerations (and costs), homeowners are adding moveable walls or accordion-style collapsible room dividers to help provide increased flexibility in the use of spaces.
Meanwhile, baby-boomers who want to live in their homes longer are investing in their own personal elevator and chairlifts.


5 Areas in your home that causes stress-and how to organize them!
Café coffee has been replaced by a countertop coffee pot, and commuting to work means going from bedroom to kitchen.
Spending more time indoors right now may be shedding light on spots around the house prone to disorderly chaos.
The average household is likely storing more supplies, paper goods, and groceries than usual to avoid frequent trips to the store – and possibly to accommodate more people living under one roof.
If storage space seems maxed out, perhaps it’s time to reorganize for efficiency. Here are 5 common areas in a household notorious for causing stress, and how to fix them once and for all.
1. Pantry and refrigerator
With more food on hand, now is a good time to clear everything off the shelves and put it all back in a stacked, organized and easy-to-reach manner.
Choose less condiment jars, select only the necessary items from those that hog room along the door shelves, and consolidate loose items like granola bars into boxes or jars so no snack gets left behind.
2. Underneath the bathroom sink
This location may not be causing stress, but its under-utilized storage capabilities can help alleviate stress by clearing up space in other messy zones.
I am a big fan of those see through plastic-containers; they come in different sizes so you can utilize the space and organize items in visible orderly manner.
The area underneath the bathroom sink isn’t just for plungers & toilet cleaning brush! Optimize it by using baskets designated for items like toilet papers, hair products, and cleaning supply.
3. Entryway
So many shoes by the door but nowhere to go!
The entry way is likely cluttered with slippers, sneakers, as well as rain jackets and bags hanging on hooks.
Store away items used infrequently and allow only one pair of shoes per person to live by the door, moving the rest inside a closet – out of sight and out of mind.
4. Kitchen table
Is your kitchen table now functioning as a home office, place to eat, homework spot for kids, craft zone, etc.?
By day, this multifunctional area is a hub of the house – so try to keep it as orderly as possible, not allowing clutter to linger when the workday or school day is done.
Unless you’re in the midst of a great big puzzle, clear off the kitchen table at the end of each day so your house feels normal again when it’s time for rest and relaxation.
5. General dust and dirt
Even when order has been instilled upon shelves, countertops and closets, you may still be feeling stress from general dirtiness – especially if you have dark-coloured floors or carpet.
Get in the habit of running a vacuum through high-traffic areas, like the living room, every few days so visible dirt never piles up.
Though life is out of routine at the moment, stick to regular maintenance. Especially during these unusual times, keeping our home – not only running well for our family’s needs – but also flowing well with regard to our family’s overall wellbeing.
Keep well!
Lists to Make When Selling Your Home

Lists to Make When Selling Your Home

When you put your property up for sale, you want to make sure that potential buyers get all the information they need on the features of your home and its surrounding area. If, for example, a buyer doesn’t realize there is a great school just a couple of blocks away, he might cross your property off his shortlist.

An effective way to make sure something like that doesn’t happen is to create three lists. 

#1: The “I’ll miss it” list.
Chances are, there are things about your home that you’re really going to miss when you move. It may be the spacious living room, ideal for entertaining. Or maybe it’s the nearby park with scenic trails, perfect for walking and biking, or the large deck that has just the right combination of shade and sun to make spending time on it so pleasant. Whatever you’ll miss, put it on the list! Those are features that will probably interest buyers too.

#2: The “Just the facts” list.
What are the facts about your property that a buyer needs to know in order to consider purchasing it? This may be a very long list including such items as total square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, property taxes, size of the lot, and more. This list should also include special features such as upgraded kitchen features and the nearby golf course.

#3: The “repairs and improvements” list.
Buyers are interested in the state of repair of your home, and in any improvements you have made to it. On this list, include all repairs you have done during the past three years and, if possible, attach receipts. It’s especially important to include anything that has been replaced, such as a furnace or roof. If you’ve done any major remodelling or renovations, include the details on those too.

Have you been dreaming of ways to make your backyard more inviting and livable?

Perhaps you have a deck where you enjoy spending time, but it gets hot in the afternoon sun with little or no shade.
Or maybe your backyard doesn’t currently have many comfortable features beyond a few chairs or a basic patio.

Landscape structures, like a pavilion, can offer new options for relaxing. They are meant to blend into the landscape while providing a comfortable, shaded spot to gather with friends and family.

And these days, they’re often built over outdoor kitchens or next to pools to provide eating and relaxation space that doesn’t block views or conversations between people doing different activities.

Pavilion provide support for everything from chandeliers & ceiling fans to speakers & TV; you’re only limited to your imagination. Also, by adding weather-resistant furniture, heat lamps you can enjoy your backyard oasis most of the year!

Have a safe & happy summer!

Make a statement with on-trend cabinets

Make a statement with on-trend cabinets

Whether you are planning a full scale renovation considering cabinet refacing, you can make a dramatic transformation no matter your budget.

Here are few consideration to modernize your kitchen:

1- Coloured Cabinets:

Although all-white kitchens are still popular, people have started taking more risks with their cabinet colour choices. Jewel tones such as green and blue add elegant drama to any space, and black has gained popularity with homeowners who prefer sleek, modern look.

2- Mix and Match:

Don’t be afraid to mix and match colours and finishes to dial up the drama. Combine black and grey for an elegant, timeless look, or pair blue and white for a classic statement. As a rule, use darker colours on lower cabinets to anchor your design.

3- Minimal Hardware

Seamless cabinets have grown in popularity and pair well with subtle edge-pulls. By eliminating moulding and heavy finishes, you can ensure that your cabinet doors and countertops are the focal point of your kitchen.

4- New door Styles

From traditional to modern, there is a door to match any style. Consider a timeless shaker option for a classic design or a modern slab style for a seamless look.

Having a beautiful kitchen means investing in your family’s health and happiness. A functional, aesthetically pleasing kitchen will draw family and guests into the very heart of your home and envelop them in warmth of your HOME!



Since the most of us have been self isolating, we’ve had to find ways to keep ourselves busy. Many have taken this time to catch up on Netflix shows, embark on movie marathons, try out some new recipes, and some have even started fun and quirky challenges!

But while we’re in our homes we want to do more than just survive…we want to thrive. Here are a few tips:

- Wash all the cushion covers – make everything feel fresh.
- Throw open the windows and let the sunshine in.
- Replace the bedroom's duvet covers more often; fresh linen brings momentary newness to the space with an uplifting sense of comfort & joy. (My all time favorite go-to cure)
- Buy a houseplant and watch it thrive. If you have one already, give it some water, love and dust it's pretty leaves.
- Make a playlist of your favourite music or podcasts and get listening.
- Add a throw to your sofa; somewhere to snuggle with a book or Netflix.
- Light a scented candle. One which will remind you of more innocent times; a coastal fragrance to evoke holidays at the beach or a woody fragrance that transports you to family holidays.
- Change all the bed linen. Clean sheets are one of life’s simple pleasures.
- Create some special areas of retreat and make each one comfortable; at the kitchen island or a chair by a window. Have magazines at one space and a journal at the other. Make each a destination for reading and reflection.
- Ring a friend; check in with family and friends as they are stuck at home too. Or even send them a gift so that they know you are thinking of them.

Take good care, and keep well!

The Anatomy Of A Home

The Anatomy Of A Home

Feng Shui is a design system based on the flow of energy though your home or environment. It differs from the principles of traditional interior design, which bases its concepts mainly on function, form and aesthetics.

 The primary objective of Feng Shui is always to create home and work environment that are in alignment with the healing forces of nature, thus creating spaces that naturally support and nurture the individuals who occupy them.

 As energy/Chi circulates throughout your home, it merges with the energy emitted by other elements in the environment, such as the color of the walls, the shapes of the rooms, and the positioning of the furniture.

 These patterns of energy then shape the Chi that exist in our bodies and in our external energy system called the Chakras. The Chi in our bodies transmits these energy patterns to the world, drawing to us like a magnet, certain life situations ( relationships, jobs, health issues..) that reflect those same energy patterns.

 The environment around us is full of clues that can alert us to energetic patterns. Our job is to decipher the clues and then begin to make the changes necessary to correct those conditions.

It’s a good life!




Creating a home for the soul is probably the unconscious intention of all our interior designing endeavors.

HOME is something we all seek, and to create such a sacred space within our homes demands that we know all the different pieces that contribute to it as a whole.

The more knowledge we have of them, the clearer their relationship is with the space, and this further increases the home capacity to make us feel truly at peace and to bring us an experience of the spirit. 

Filling the house with items we love assures the development of a rich and personal sacred space. Familiarity with their origins brings the presence of these places and further enriches the home where they are sited. 

Nothing equals to items that have been made by hand, which imbues it with all the positive feelings, thoughts and even prayers held at the time in which it was made.

Remember that a home can be a stage for the beauty of nature as we experience her in the wild as well as in a cultivated setting. All the textures, colors, and forms can serve to excite us and to invoke a mysterious deep feeling within us. 

A well designed home is the cornerstone of a happy soul. Live well!

Granny Pods!

Granny Pods!

There is a new trend emerging in Senior Housing: Granny Pods!

Also known as tiny homes for seniors, granny pods are compact, prefabricated houses that can be assembled in the backyard of a caregiver’s home.

Although the idea of granny flats has been around for decades all over the world, it has gained popularity and been adopted by companies across U.S and Canada.

In general, granny pods include an open space containing a bed, living area, kitchenette and bathroom. They are completely accessible to elderly people with heath and mobility problems.

A tiny house built to meet a senior’s needs can cost anywhere from $30,000 to $125,000.

It is a sound investment consider that the average monthly rate for seniors in independent living facilities in Canada averages between $3000 – $5000/month and higher depending on the area. The average monthly rate for assisted living is even higher at $4500 – $6000/month or more depending on the area.

Many seniors and their loved ones see granny pods as an excellent way to downsize after retirement and a welcome alternative to nursing homes. These tiny homes allow seniors to continue living independently while receiving the care they need. It also lets families stay together without having to sacrifice space and privacy by living under one roof. This would give the senior a sense of autonomy and well-being.

The sooner we can get local governments to treat tiny houses as an acceptable form of housing (including them in building codes and zoning bylaws), the sooner policymakers can include them as housing options for Canadians in our cities and in rural areas, and not only seniors but those in generation squeeze, those who prefer a simpler lifestyle and those who care for the environment.







The proposals that we will see in the interiors during the next year, seek a common goal: 

to give the house a comfortable look and be inspired by nature. Noteworthy decor tips for 2020:
- Black Is Back
While green, brown and gray should be the dominant colors of the year, we will witness an upsurge in the application of black. The kitchens in black are coming with great force.
It seems that people are now realizing that they can never go wrong with black. We will see an increased use of black in interior decorations; black furniture, fixtures, finishes and black walls.
- Lighting
Lamps have been an element present in the interior decoration, but they were mainly table lamps. This year, we will see new floor lamp designs that differ from the old lamps we know; its silhouette is inspired by art, which makes them beautiful.
- Curved Edges
We will see more furniture with curved edges in 2020 instead of the usual square edge trends. People are tired of square and rectangular furniture and aspire to something different. 
Furniture will abandon the straight designs for a more rounded back and sides. With this trend, it will be easy to incorporate round back chairs into smaller rooms while keeping enough space.

- Flooring

Unlike previous years in which the light wood was the star, next year dark tones will be the pampered, looking to give the house decoration greater elegance and a touch of luxury.

- Less Open Concept

Unlike in previous years in which open spaces with communicated environments were sought, in 2020 we will see designs that opt otherwise. The tendency will be to look for divisions that grant greater privacy and intimacy to each environment, so that they are more welcoming.


All scents are associated with one of Feng Shui’s five elements. The metal element helps clarify mental processes & stimulates the gathering of information and the shaping of ideas. Choosing one of the metal element scents helps you focus on the solutions you may need following a loss & keep you engaged in mitigating emotional pain.

Suggested cures:

- Stew Eucalyptus leaves in a simmering pot of water to help you overcome the inability to move forward & to enhance your ability to relinquish whatever no longer serves you

- Purchase Hyssop essential oil and use it on a scent ring (the kind that rests on a lamp’s lightbulb) to dispel gloom & negativity, and improve concentration by invigorating your mind & reducing nervous exhaustion

- Choose toothpaste with herb Myrrh, because it has a powerful effect on the nervous system and reaches into the psyche to help us transcend & transforms aspects of material existence

- Light Pine candles to help you let go of what is old and useless and to restore confidence. Pine also helps reverse short-term memory loss. Finally, it restores a positive self-identity and promotes a vibrant self-image

With the social consciousness that is attached to the colour green and its longstanding nurturing effect on the human body, this hue is the perfect choice to colour the walls and use in upholstery, bedding, and area carpets. Take your colour clues from nature and go ˜au natural™.

During the last few weeks of summer, we start to hang on for dear life to the great outdoors before its back to school and a chillier climate. By bringing green into our décor, we can keep things alive and help to lower our stress levels.

Just as a walk around the block, a hike through the woods or picking apples in the orchard is known to bring us peace of mind, surrounding ourselves with shades of green is known to calm our nerves and to reduce anxiety levels, which is another good reason to bring the outdoors in.

Mother Nature gave us an almost infinite palette from which to choose; here are just a few options :

  • Grass green
  • Tea green
  • Apple green
  • Pear green
  • Pea green
  • Leaf green


From a Feng Shui perspective, our homes are always significant in terms of our life events, but when we are sick they become even more priceless because it is the all-encompassing place where we make decisions, make love and make life enfolds.
There are certain elements that help create and sustain a healing space:
1. Sacred Power Objects: These are our "spiritual transition objects" that carry higher realms of energy, which may include: bells, cymbals, and statues.
2. Space Clearing Rituals: Crisis, trauma and sickness in our homes often give off an electrical or emotional charge that even long after the event has come and passed still remains in the space, walls and even absorbed into the furniture.
Burning sage in a smudge stick in every room can be very effective in cleansing the old energy and revitalize the space. Also lighting a candle or incense sticks on a regular basis can neutralize negative energy and bring balance to your home.
As well, ever underestimate using sea salt which has the ability to absorb and store negative energy; placed in a bowl in a corner of the room and changed every few weeks.
What to do with the old salt? you can discard in the toilet or out in the garden back to earth to be recycled.
3. Life Force: When we are surrounded with various life forces, our auras absorb their energies and in turn help us heal. From beautiful lush plants, to playful dogs and purring cats.
And remember, by honouring our space, we're honouring ourselves.
Keep well!


When it comes to their homes, people tend to focus on new renovation projects, upgrades & daily chores. While the space can look modern & clean, the air inside it may be less than ideal, loaded with unseen allergens, dust mites, mould, volatile organic compounds, pet dander and more-all of which can wreak havoc on their health.

To improve a home's air quality, pay attention to the main things that can affect it:

  • Ventilation

Does dust in your home seem to accumulate faster than the speed of light? Excessive dust is often symptomatic of a larger issue. Create a calendar reminder for vents & fans to be cleaned and filters to be replaced routinely to prevent dust from constantly re-circulating throughout the home. Use a high efficiency particulate air filter that traps tiny particles so you're less likely to breath them in. also remember to wash sheets and vacuum mattresses regularly

  • Harmful chemical

Volatile organic compounds negatively impact air quality & personal health. Choose products that say low VOC or no VOC. Paint, building materials, furniture & floor polishes, cleaning solvents & even air fresheners often contain VOCs. Be mindful the product you are using daily, and choose better alternatives whenever possible

  • Mould

Perform a mould check at least once a year. Look for discoloration or dark spots on surfaces. Moisture, especially plumbing or roofing leaks, is among the primary causes of mould

  • Air purifier

Take your home's air quality to the next level by investing in an air purifier-they're perfect for common living spaces such as kitchens & bedrooms. One of the top products is Oreck's Air Response air purifier that uses a HEPA filter with carbon. It traps 99% of allergens, smoke, dust, odors & has a convenient air quality indicator that changes color when measuring the air purity.

Another element to improve your home's air quality is indoor plants. It is vert affordable, great item to decorate with and it brings nature's calm & peace into your home and life.

It's a good life!

Feng Shui Tip Of The Month

Ever wondered why some people are magnets for great opportunities? How do they do it?
Their energy and attitude plays tremendous part in this.
How to improve your vibe to attract good things, you ask? One way is to enhance your space, so that it reflects back to you great feelings of enjoying and optimal success.
In Feng Shui, the Fame & Future Enhancement area is located in the rear top middle section of your home, that is standing at your front door & looking inside the house.
Enhancing Tips:
- The color red is particularly effective in activating the fame and reputation sector. Objects with red as their dominant color can be displayed in this area (soft furnishings, upholstery, lampshades, drapes, bedspreads, rugs, carpets, decor, vases, etc.)
You can also use objects of the fire element to energize the fame corner of your home. A fireplace is an exceptionally good way to do this, but candles, bright lights, garlands work too!
- Hang a painting with red as the dominant color or a photograph frame made of wood in this corner. They would be excellent supplements to the fire element since wood produces fire.
- Display diplomas, awards, trophies, letters of recognition, symbols of victories, etc..
- Display something you would like to be known for, a physical symbol of a future goal.
- Objects or patterns that have the shape of a pyramid & triangle.
- Place symbols of success, charts, or visualization boards with goals displayed. If you are reserved about displaying awards, letters of recognition, etc. then place them behind a picture, in a cabinet, behind a chair or couch.
Finally, complement your decor with wood, which will enhance the Fire element.
What to avoid using in the area?
The presence of water and all its related symbols ( blue, black & circles) doesn’t support your goals here.
Enjoy, and do not hesitate to ask me questions. Live Well!


From bold colour & luxurious fabrics to metallic & detailed patterns, maximalism is without doubt this Fall home decor’s best attraction.

Maximalism is a sign of passion, power & joy that can be expressed through a room. Glamour and luxury are making their mainstream comeback, get ready and enjoy the ride!

This in-your-face design can be a little intimidating.
How to mix colours and fabrics and still achieve a vibrant style that’s eclectic rather than cluttered and chaotic?
Here are few tips:

1. Try it in small doses
To avoid overwhelming yourself, bring in a few colourful cushions in clashing tones, and try scattering them on a plain sofa or simple chairs. If you’re feeling braver, try bold wallpaper in a smaller room; adding drama in rooms that you simply pass through makes it easier to get used to and build up from, before taking it into rooms that you really live in.

2. Connect the dots
To make sure that your interiors still feel connected even with a mix of colours, patterns and textures in the room, you should find a link between pieces to bring the room together. Pick out a colour that really sings for you and then bring it onto a chair and a fabulous pair of velvet curtains. Keep the space symmetrical; you can layer even more and still keep a sense of balance, even in a room that mixes colours and styles broadly.

3. Tell a story
Think about what you want to express with your interiors. Maximalism is at its best when there’s a common theme running through it, some kind of visual theatre to tell a story. Try designs inspired by the landscapes and wildlife, bringing in nature alongside bright colours, and use accent accessories that bring out the patterns in the fabrics too. It’s still colourful, busy and exciting, but it’s cohesive and makes sense.

Too many of us walk away from interior pieces that we love because "they don’t match" our schemes.
Say "yes" to the items that make your heart sing and bring them into your home whether they match or not. Mixing materials and styles makes for an interesting home!

How can I improve my bedroom Feng Shui? 

The first step I would suggest if you want to sleep better would be to remove all mirrors (keep only one if needed), electronics and big plants from your bedroom. Next step is to paint your bedroom walls in skin tone colors (beige, cream, brown, pale yellow, soft pink, light peach, olive). You could also add soft bedding and remove big or sad paintings. You could also choose lower furniture rather than tall furniture (especially if the furniture is close to the bed). But most importantly, you could declutter thoroughly (nothing under the bed) and also sleep with your bed positioned in the fahest corner from the main door.

If someone is looking for a realtionship, some small changes they could make could be to start having things in pairs in the bedroom (two night stands, two lamps, two cushions, two candles), decorative objects that symbolize love (pairs of mandrin ducks or flamingos, romantic photos), a couple of pink raw quartz crystals. They could also “make room” for another person in their bedroom (empty a drawer for them, have an armchair ready for the other person) and remove all obstructions to entering their side of the bed.

Live Well!



By the time your 30s arrive, your palette has been refined, and you’ll likely have a new passion for crafting an intimate sanctuary at home. So to help you enter this new decade of your life in the grandest style, here are few things you need to rethink!

1- Sofa futons: the sofa futon is something we’ve all owned at least once in our lifetime, but especially in our 20s. Time isn’t really kind to this furniture style. When your 30s come around, it’s time to upgrade your living room to reflect your elevated esthetic.
2- Old linen: good linen should be a priority at every age! Do yourself a favor and get rid of any worn out, stained or ratty linens you still own. Its time.
3- Wire clothing hangers: while it may not be a display for your guest to see, just the lining of a beautiful coat makes the experience feel expensive, so too does the inside of your closet. Invest in good wood hangers.
4- Dated mirror: if there’s one piece that can really date a home fast, it’s a mirror. They have the ability to open up a space and add a beautiful accent to any room, but if they’re badly framed or frumpy shape, it can really offset the balance. So it’s time to retire that old mirror in the bathroom that came with the house! You’ll notice the difference.
5- Plastic dishware: anything plastic that isn’t for outdoor needs, to be tossed. It served its purpose and we are sure it has been handy, but when you entertain at home serving on plastic plate is dated. formal dishware doesn’t need to be expensive. The beauty of upgrading your dishware is being able to display them on open shelve; a beautiful accent in your home.
6- Cheap rugs: rugs can set the tone for the entire room. Invest in them; add a new or antique rug to your list of new purchases, and start putting money aside now. Vintage rugs, if they are cared for, are the most durable, easy to clean and hide dirt well.
7- Hand-me-down furniture: your family & friends meant well by giving you that old side table, desk & armchair, but now is the time to retire those worn-out pieces. It’s time to move on, and invest in furniture & decor items that will reflect the new era of your life.

When you see the homes of wealthy people, the number one obvious thing that you see is the abundance of open space. 

Rarely do you see wealthy houses full to the brim with all sorts of stuff. It is the luxury of the open space and plenty of breathing room that attracts more wealth energy.

In feng shui terms, this basically means there is room to allow for more and to enjoy more.

For me personally, one of the most important areas in the home is the front foyer. This is where your home love journey begins.
It is important to learn to welcome powerful energy into our home, and not make it stale or block it with all sorts of stuff. 
Allowing open space, definitely contributes to positive energy in the home in order to support your lifestyle. 

Each item in your home deserves a space of its own, no matter how small it is; this makes for a peaceful house with strong and clear energy. Because wasting time on finding something is frustrating and detracts from other things & activities that can bring us wealth both financial wealth, as well as the wealth of emotional and physical health.

Remember: Good Chi Flows in a Clear, Open Space! 
Live well!

A lot of people are now turning to Feng Shui for greater alignment in their lives, greater relationships, joy and abundance. Famous businessmen, actors and athletes regularly ask consultants to assist them in their home renovations. Just like more and more people turn to acupuncture for enhanced health and preventive treatments, Feng Shui is to the house what acupuncture is to the body.
Just like an acupuncturist uses a diagram of all the pressure points on the body, Feng Shui provides us with a Bagua map that can be superimposed on your home floor plan, indicating the areas the are associated with 9 most essential aspects of our life. One of the nine aspects is Health. Its location is the centre of your home, and centre of every room in it.
It is the distribution centre of all energy in your home. It should be devoid of tall shelves or heavy furniture. Its main ruling Element is Earth, so yellow, creams, gold tones can be very supportive for you here. The centre should be calm and relaxing, ideally no staircase or toilets here.
Consider an off white rug for this area, and a square wood table displaying plants, Himalayan salt lamp and art that promotes peace. In the centre avoid using any water Element and its related colours like blue, white, silver & black.
Live consciously and utilize the power of nature to support your goals and enhance your lifestyle.
It’s a good life!


A warm, comfortable finished basement is a great feature that adds great value to your home, and provides useful space for the whole family. Unfortunately very few people realize that finishing a basement the wrong way can bring mould, mildew and lower indoor air quality. Building a healthy finished basement comes down to few elements:

- Only finish a reliable dry basement. Even a small amount of leaked water can trigger problems. Monitor the space and make sure it is dry at least a year before you start investing time & money into finishing

- Use moisture resistant inorganic materials. Even a dry basement might get unexpectedly damp, so use material that won’t feed mould even in the presence of moisture. Foam based insulation is best at reducing mould risk in basements. Avoid putting wood in contact with concrete.

- Install a subfloor. Proper basement subfloors make finished floors warmer and reduce the chance that humid summer-time air will condense against cool concrete.

- Spray foam the rim joints. Although it’s common to insulate the area where joist meet outside walls using fiber based insulation and a vapour barrier, it’s difficult to get a proper air seal around all those joints. The resulting air leakage is why many homes have some kind of mould in the rim joist area. You’ll need professional installer to do this work.

- Install a proper heating system. Just because you have a furnace in your basement doesn’t mean it will automatically heat the space. You need sufficient ducts to deliver heat to all areas as well as cold air return ducts at floor level to promote circulation.

We are a part of the universe and the universe is a part of each of us. Is it any wonder then, that we thrive only when we’re in harmony with the lives and forces around us? It isn’t. 

Synthesis and unison with Chi is a necessary, condition for prosperity.

The bad news is; if you are in conflict with your surroundings and the forces present in it, your potential for health, wealth, and happiness is limited by the results of the conflict. And no amount of good deeds or hard work will be able to get you through. 

The good news is; you can take certain steps to ensure harmony between you and your surroundings.

Adhering to the principles of Feng Shui is the simplest of those steps. The task becomes simpler when you are building a new house (as opposed to purchasing a finished one) because you have the freedom to adhere to Feng Shui principles right from the start.

Listed below are top-two tips that is important to follow:

1. Pay special attention to the main door

The main door, or the front door is a critical consideration in Feng Shui because it is the passage through which the house receives its Chi (energy). You need to ensure the front door is large in size but remains in proportion to the rest of the house. You also need to make sure that the front door does not get aligned to the back door after construction.

Aligned front and back door facilitate the loss of Chi. You also need to take care that there are no tall objects (such as trees or other buildings) right in the line of sight from your front door.

2. Check the house shape and floor plan

You might want the house to be constructed with even corners. Houses shaped as squares or rectangles are harmonizing whereas those with odd or missing corners (shaped like a triangle or pentagon) are conflicting.

When reviewing floor plans, you need to ensure that there are no kitchens or toilets in the North West side of the house. 

Keeping the North West side is especially important because that’s the direction from which the positive energy pour into your houses. Also avoid constructing kitchens and toilets such that they are visible straight from the front door.







Sometimes, the smallest things can have a big impact. An instant trick for creating serenity in a space is to examine the hidden symbolism in your home and make sure it’s supporting you.

If your intention is to create more serenity in your home, here are few tips to consider:


Not only is furniture arrangement important to the functionality of a room, but healthy flow also promotes relaxation and serenity, one of the key principles of feng shui. make sure your headboard is up against a wall, and that the sides of your bed aren’t pushed against the wall. It's important that energy circulates under and around the sides of your bed, otherwise, over time you yourself will feel ‘up against a wall,’ confined or limited in your opportunities in life. 


Sometimes, the smallest things can have a big impact. An instant trick for creating serenity in a space is to examine the hidden symbolism in your home and make sure it’s supporting you. Is your bedroom filled with pictures of crashing waves? Perhaps that’s why you’re having trouble sleeping. Are your mirrors hung too high? That may make you feel you can’t measure up. Take a deeper look at what your home is showing you, because right now it’s telling your story.


Just as smelling something from your past can bring you back to that moment, different fragrances can stir up different emotions. Make your space feel calm and relaxing by infusing it with scents that trigger those feelings. 


In choosing calming furniture and objects to decorate rooms, look for natural, unfinished textures (wood, cork, stone) and fabrics (cotton, wool). For a Zen vibe, you really want to highlight the natural imperfections of the material or fiber. It's not just about feeling closer to nature, but also accepting the imperfection of nature.



Creating a home for the soul is probably the unconscious intention of all our interior designing endeavors.

HOME is something we all seek, for as the saying goes: home is where the heart is. Creating sacred space within our home demands that we know all the different pieces that contribute to it as a whole. The more knowledge we have of them, the clearer their relationship is with the space, and this further increases the home capacity to make us feel truly at peace & to bring us an experience of the spirit.

Filling the house with items we love assures the development of a rich & personal sacred space. The items chosen may include souvenirs from places we visited that bring us good memories, nick knacks from spots where we experienced a certain joy or an insight into the magic of a particular landscape.

Familiarity with their origins brings the presence of these places and further enriches the home where they are placed.

Nothing equal items that have been made by hand, which imbues it with all the positive feelings, thoughts & even prayer we held at the time in which we made it. Creating a special place in the house for such items empowers even further, bringing a deep & very personal atmosphere to the whole space.

Remember that a home can be a stage for the beauty of nature as we experience her in the wild as in a cultivated setting. All textures, colors, & forms can serve to excite us & to invoke a mysterious deep feeling within us.

A well-designed home is the cornerstone of a happy soul. Live well!!



The way we design our homes plays a big role in helping us manifest our goals, and carving out a calming space in your home is a physical manifestation of your commitment to spirituality. You’ll imbue the area with your energy of reflection, devotion, and peace.

Few tips to consider:

1. Keep it simple.

Resist the urge to go wild with the crystals and mala beads—too many and your space will likely cross the line from relaxing to distracting. Visual calm begets mental serenity, so practice restraint when decorating your spiritual space by culling your small decor to include only a handful of your most meaningful pieces. Find a pretty container to store the rest and pull them out when inspiration strikes.

2. Tell a story.
A well-styled vignette is like a haiku; each carefully chosen element plays a key role in telling a concise story. So if you want to travel more, curate a collection of globally inspired items. Use characteristics such as texture, color, and scale to evoke a response.

4. Flaunt your intentions
you no longer need to hide the affirmations taped to your mirror when friends come over. Not only does text-based art look cool, but, words have a powerful energy and add an extra layer of meaning and intention to a spiritual space. Frame or simply tape up sayings and phrases that reflect your values, including some that you write in your own hand for an extra personal touch.

5. Think outside the altar.
Not all of us have the time or resources for a floor-to-ceiling metaphysical home makeover, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with an uninspired dwelling. but any space in your home can be spiritual when you decorate with intention. For example, if cooking is your meditation time, then support your Zen of meal prep with thoughtfully—and beautifully!—organized shelves and cupboards. 





Halloween is a chance for kids and adults alike to enjoy seasonal, spooky fun. In keeping with this festive atmosphere, millions of families will choose to decorate their homes to celebrate. While many spend a considerable amount of money on store-bought Halloween decorations for their homes, the holiday offers plenty of opportunities for families to make a variety of decorations. For anyone who is willing to get creative, Halloween decorations can work in almost every room of the house by using common household items to make these creations:


Everybody has a few pairs of striped stockings, old shoes and an umbrella. But how many people would consider throwing the three together to make a chandelie that fits Halloween perfectly? This cute hanging object is a perfect way to deliver a shocking surprise to house guests. This clever project allows you to create the allusion of two hanging legs and if you choose to customize it with LED lights actually produce light for a living or dining room. And what could fit Halloween better than the ghoulish idea of two hanging witches legs producing light that delights?


While centerpieces can always help with a cool look, it can sometimes be hard to think of other creative Halloween ideas for a dining room. These creative tab leg covers, which can be easily made with some leftover curtain fabric and old shoes, are perfect for adding a fun, innovative look to any dining room or kitchen table. Combined with a centerpiece that fits with the Halloween theme, these witches leg table leg covers are perfect to help you celebrate the holiday in every room of your home.


There are more options than just a spooky centerpiece to make your dining room table ready for the Halloween season. As this extravagant option suggests, with a bit of effort you can create a fun, dynamic tablespace that will have all your friends interested. Using faux crows or ravens can give you a classic touch, while a skeleton centerpiece or shimmery pumpkins can add to the allure. You can even top this sort of design off with a tablecloth made to look like a spider web. Adding spider toys to the table makes it seem even more real!


As you aim to fill your home with indoor Halloween decoration galore, you can sometimes forget about the staircase. But as this simple idea shows, it's easy to turn your stairs into a decoration all their own. By making simple cut outs of letters or images that fit the Halloween spirit and attaching them to easy stick pads, you can spell out words like (BOO) or show a flock of bats ascending your stairs.


This easy project delivers a fun look with minimal expense and only slightly more effort. By taking fabric, doilies, or even some scrim (a gauze-like fabric), and using pipe cleaner to stand up right, you can create miniature ghosts that look perfect on an end table or great for a nightstand in a kid's room. You can accessorize the ghosts with small padded black eyes or by adding bows. In fact, some families love making one for each family member and displaying them on the mantle. Either way, this project is fun, easy to customize, and provides a small indoor decoration quickly.


Mirrors are a part of every haunted house, and in this Halloween indoor decoration idea, you ensure that the mirror reflects a spooky image all the time. Starting with a relatively inexpensive mirror, you can use reflective paint to blur the image and create an inverse image to fit inside the frame. This project is pretty cheap for the end result: a mirror that looks classically haunted!


If you're like many of us, you have some old Halloween decorations laying around the house that is crying out for a creative use. Instead of simply displaying them on a table, you can easily repurpose them with a neat solution: apothecary jars. These stylish containers can be picked up nearly anywhere. Filled with Halloween decorations like pumpkins, they can be cute. With skulls and bones, they can be creepy. Pick up some replica Spanish moss at a craft store to make these decorations stand out even more.

Chinese New Year in 2018 is on Friday, the 16 Th. of February.

It is the year of the Earth Dog, and its characteristic word is ACTION!

It will be a year of social change and also a change to how we live our life; we will see changes in our view on diet, smoking, drinking and junk food just to name a few.

Year 2018 will bring more luck in marriages, and it will be a very strong Earth. That implies the events related to land, real estate, county territory, agriculture, earthquake, will be more active than before.

As well, year 2018 falls under the auspices ruling number 9.

The financial potential created by star 9 will concretize in new business opportunities, increased cash flow, building good reputation and a high social status.

Decorate your space using groups of 9; crystals, pictures, candles, and initiate good luck & blessings to flow into your home & life.

The Earth elements in 2018 are associated with specific parts of the house intended for:

1-health (centre of every room),

2-relationships (top right corner area of every room, standing at its main door) 

3-and knowledge (lower left corner area of every room, standing at its main door). 

The ideal decorations for these locations are natural crystals, terracotta and tiles, and the appropriate earthy colours which they represent stability, safety & loyalty.

Brown can be used by those who have a scattered or volatile attention, while warm tones of beige can induce a state of relaxation.

Yellow is the colour of joy, happiness and creativity. It’s energizing, simulative and it brings forward optimism, clarity in ideas, intelligence. Add to that, it keeps at bay depression and anxiety. Use it when & where it is needed.

Celebrate & live well!




Your front door is the most important gateway to your home because it is here that energy finds a way in. This is what is called "Mouth of Chi" or gateway through which the life-enhancing energy from the outside will flow in. It is critical that this flow is not blocked, so you need to make sure the door can open fully, and that the area around it is in good repair. Whatever object the energy flows around will impregnate it and affects its quality. Don’t allow this energy from the outside to be tainted by dirt & dust. Make sure your hall is clean, fresh for the energy to remain strong & vital.

What is the first thing seen when you enter your home? Your eyes go somewhere, so direct them by organizing each room so that the first thing seen is nice & inspiring and it sets a pleasant tone.  Keep this area well lit & inviting. Check the entry lighting fixtures, make sure the doorbell works and touch up scuff marks with fresh coat of paint, or add a new rug to welcome great uplifting energy.

Live well!
