Mindful Design With Feng Shui
Simply put, Feng Shui is based on an ancient Chinese philosophy which teaches us that when the five elements of nature are in a home or business, the results are a positive blend of harmony, balance and prosperity. Those five elements represented in colors and shapes are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. Just as Chinese medicine is based on the flow of energy (Ch’i) in our bodies, our environment contains energy which is affected by color, doorways, stairs, furniture, lighting and accessories. This Ch’i energy will affect your emotional and physical well being. For example, if you are having difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep, we would take a good look at your bedroom to see if mirrors, electronics, art work, or the position of your bed is disrupting your sleep. Many times, a simple adjustment can make a huge difference.
Do you have a room in your home that needs a new, refreshed look? Room styling is a process of moving everything in a room to create colorful harmony, balance, and support for everyday uses.
How it works: I meet with you to learn about what’s important to you, what you love, and how you’d like to use the space. I bring a fresh set of eyes―making suggestions, moving things around, and experimenting with old objects in new places. Sometimes we borrow items from other parts of the house to see what works best. You end up with a room that is refreshed, inviting, and a place where you’ll enjoy spending more time.
The room styling process is playful, fun, and light. When we’re finished, I can provide you with suggestions about colors, accessories, lighting ideas, or anything your space is missing. A single room usually takes two to three hours to complete.

Energy Space Clearing
Sometimes homes and rooms carry heavy energy from the past. When this happens, a room can feel so blah and stuck it’s hard to enjoy spending time in it. Sometimes a good decluttering and cleaning make a difference, but when the stuckness goes deeper, energy space clearing can help.
How it works: Drawing from several traditions, I create a sacred space and carefully cleanse from the room any negative energy using sound, light, fresh air, and natural fragrance. You have the option of participating with me or leaving while I perform this process, which usually takes from 1-3 hours.
When complete, the energy will have shifted. You’ll feel differently in the space, enjoying the renewed energy, balance, and inspiration.
If you want to use color in your space, but are afraid to take the leap, a color consultation can help. In a color consultation, I learn about you, your likes and dislikes, and what you want to change about the colors in your space including paint, fabrics, and more.
My role is to help you choose with confidence (even if you and loved ones have different tastes!).
Using fan decks from various paint lines, we do color tests to help you discover the colors and combinations you love.
If decorating decisions are your downfall, I can help in two ways:
Shop together: With a list of specific items as our goal, I take you to shops which offer options that suit your taste and budget. We can also look online together for ideas. By shopping together, we create rooms that fit you and your style―and have fun in the process!
Bring treasures to you: Using the list and budget we create together, I bring items for you to try out in your space. My clients often tell me, “I would have never bought that, but I love it here.” If you like what I select, it stays in your home. You only pay for what you like, and never more than the purchase price. Many retail stores and local shops have designer discounts available.
