  • Ask the space what it wants. Whenever I design a space, I always do a round of touching the walls and asking the house, office… etc. What is it that it needs? Perhaps energy, color, emotions, textures, etc. You feel it and you know.
  • Don’t be afraid of negative space. We tend to want to fill every corner of our homes with something, leaving empty spaces is important. It allows you to think and create new things.
  • Greenery. Plants bring life and growth; green is a color that helps us heal and disconnect from the noise. Use it in plants as it will vibrate higher.
