Decor is so much more……….
Decor matters tremendously in my life and in all of our lives. For example, in my home which is my sanctuary (my resting place of restoration), I view the walls of my den as a refuge. I have chosen to use different themes in every room to support the activities that I normally perform in the different areas of my home. I change them periodically and some rooms are changed more often than others. In my living/social area for example where I do many things from reading, to entertaining guest and to lounging I have chosen to place a calming Indian motif as the theme. To me, it is welcoming, activates an artistic energy and is a great conversation starter. The power of the colors, light “temperatures”, patterns and textures provide stimulation to my intellect. Decor is empowering to all of us at different levels of our beings.
In our society historically we have always sought to obtain an oasis using decorative rugs, accent walls, inside and outside garden/greenery designs to benefit our overall well being. Everyone is aware of some conscious level that decor can alter the mood in a positive or an unfortunate negative way. Feng shui is a very clear source of evidence on how decor matters.
