The One With Mindful Decor and Great Excitement
When I discovered this term recently I was so excited, I just had to message my friends to tell them allllllll about mindful decor :D
The reason I was so excited was because for years I have been making quilts and cushions, focusing particularly on the colors I used and the feeling they could give you. Trying to explain to people the intention behind my quilts honestly made me feel a little kooky at times. This quilt was inspired by the beach at sunset and the colors chosen to invoke those feelings of fun, ? Okaaaaay.... *raised eyebrows and looks skeptical* *I then feel embarrassed and either overexplain, or quickly ask them a question to move the conversation on*
Hopefully if you are here something resonates with you about being intentional about what you surround yourself with, the colors, the textures, the smells, all the things that give you have special feeling when you come home.
It's that feeling, that's why I make my quilts the way I do. That's why I spend ages agonizing over colors, why I love to do custom quilts so that its unique yours. I want my quilt to be part of the reason why your home feels so special to you.
So finding the term 'mindful decor' was like yes!!!! Now I have something that everyone will understand!! (spoiler, not everyone one understands. I still have to explain the concept fairly often, but I don't mind that so much.)
Over the next little while I will be breaking down about how to be mindful in your decor, how to have fun with color and to use color psychology to make your space 100% your own.
I'm excited! This going to be fun, and the perfect excuse to sew yet more quilts... :D
