"When you realize that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration."

Light vs. Dark
Maybe it's the crappy weather we're having in Vancouver lately but I've been toying with the idea of painting my bedroom walls charcoal grey. I'm usually all about light and bright but I've got a bedroom with very little natural light. When you're dealing with a room that's dark you can try all sorts of pale wall colours and it won't make it feel brighter, it will actually come across dull and lifeless. Embracing a dark room by going darker on the walls will make it feel cozier while giving much more impact to the overall feel of the space. Now I just need rope the hubby into a painting weekend:)
I am a wife, mother, and interior decorator who is obsessed with anything and everything involving home decorating and design. This has been a passion for as long as I can remember. I am thrilled to be sharing projects and things that inspire me right here from my living room in South Surrey, BC Canada
