LIVING IN HARMONY

This is an exciting time for me as I’m just about to launch my new eZine ‘Live In Harmony’.   

Why the emphasis on Harmony?

Several years ago, when I decided on a new name for my design business, I was coming from a place of serenity because that is the kind of environment I like to create for my clients, as well as myself.

To further define my vision, I created the tag line: Clarity, Order, Simplicity. To me, it’s all part of the same thing.

The elements of design include everything from color, space, balance, shape, line, proportion and much more. These are the tools that an interior designer will work with to lend interest and excitement to a project. They are the same tools that an architect or product designer would also use.

In your home, when all the elements of design come together in a delightful way, the result will be harmonious.

Balance is a key component. If even one of the above mentioned elements is off kilter, it can throw the entire design off balance.

As an example, I’ll invoke the image of Alexander Calder’s mobiles, where even the tiniest detail is there for a reason. Nothing in his works is gratuitous. The mobiles are so carefully engineered and perfectly balanced, both literally and visually, that there is nothing to add or take away.

Home environments are the same way. When a room is relaxed and comfortable, is visually pleasing and serves your needs, there is nothing more to add.

As a side benefit, your energy and productivity levels will likely increase, as if a great weight had fallen by the wayside. Your life will seem fuller, richer.

In other words, by rearranging your home you can rearrange you life. What could be simpler?
