Accessories to Tranquilify Your Home

Purple is the color of red and blue combined. Think about this. Red is warming and blue is cooling so basically purple is the ultimate balance, and this is also why it has so much symbolism behind it. Purple is a force to be reckoned with, like the purple hearts soldiers receive for bravery. Yet at the other end of the spectrum it is calming, like flowers in an open field. No matter what way you see the color purple, there is no denying the effect of its calmness. Now your home can be balanced and can help you feel relaxed after a long day of work or fun so that you can decorate your home to facilitate your success! 1. Ursula Table Lamp from Currey & Company – $590.00 The lamp has a glass body infused with deep plum, creating a gorgeous lavender.

Decorating Your Home to Facilitate Success

Most of us here do not have a degree in the interior design world (unless that’s what your business revolves around), nor do we need one to have a home that benefits us physically and mentally.

5 Tips to Put the Cheer Back into Holiday Hosting

Hosting. When I think about it, my skin crawls. It crawls mainly because of all the cleanup. Dishes are my nemesis. I’ll let them pile up and start to smell before I wash them.  If only they can magically sparkle and put themselves away, this girl would be happy. And the stress! I don’t even know why I put makeup on. I sweat buckets running around ensuring everyone is having a holly jolly time. I crack a smile while pouring them another mug of hot cocoa and quietly whisper, “help me,” between my teeth. RELATED: 5 Tips for Managing Stress Around the Holidays Literally, help a girl out. The feet are on fire. When the moment comes for me to finally sit down and prop up the feet, I look around and the guests are gone {smh}. Where did the Christmas fun go?
