I Don't Care What Your Sofa Looks Like. Yes, really.
Welcome to Mental Space Monday! Where we journey inside the rabbit hole of collective consciousness and submit to the whims of curiosity.
Welcome to my new website!! Or as I like to think of it, my new and improved virtual rabbit hole!!! There are tweaks to be made; as with everything in life, there is never a point that is "perfect" or "finished". Da Vinci said, "Art is never finished, only abandoned." Regardless, I invite you to check out the changes, learn more about my naked ontology work and continue to strip down and Journey Inside with me!
I am going to kick this off by revisiting my roots: let's talk interior design. I'd like to direct you to my design page: Work with Me : Journey Inside your Home, you'll notice that the first sentence ends with, "I don't care what your sofa looks like." That may be sacrilege for a designer to tell you but let me tell you how this outlook will make you happier - in your home and in your life, whether we work together or not.
Let's re-visit that da Vinci quote:
I'd like to draw a few parallels.
1. You are never finished either. We are a moving target, a work in progress and all the best of us know that, like Einstein, the more we learn, the less we think we know.
2. Your home should be the same way. The goal of a well-designed house is not to create a "finished", "perfect" room that is hip, trendy and magazine-cover-ready. The goal is to make you happier; to make your life easier; to not only remind you who you are but also what inspires you and what you want for your future.
A great home is a work of art and da Vinci knows that it's ever-changing but in addition, it's like Aristotle says:
What's so beautiful about this in reference to your home is that the more you can make it reflect things, places and people that are significant to you, the more it will feel like a work of art TO YOU.
So, I stand by my claim: it's not about what your sofa looks like. It's all about which sofa will help you tap into the life that you want to be living. And while it may seem trite to attribute such significance to a piece of furniture, it is much more than that. It is a piece of the life that you live. It is a little nugget in the greater vein of your day-to-day. A star in the constellation that you view, that reminds you of your place in the universe. It doesn't seem so trite anymore, does it. The exact details of your home become infinitely more and less important all at once.
Next week I will talk more about why our surroundings are so important, but in the meantime don't let this be overwhelming. I will remind you: It should never be the pristine magazine cover. It is so much more rich when it is YOU and a perfect reflection of your imperfect unfinished journey.
Have a wonderful day my lovelies. Embrace the delusion; enjoy the results.
