in this hurry up world,
there are a few of you like me...
you desire a little place of our own to decompress
you would find me in such a space.
until the beginning of this year,
this space never existed...
I desired somewhere quiet
where i could meditate and practice yoga.
I pondered a bit
and decided what better area, than in the place I create?!
so a wall was cleared and I began designing
a place for stillness...
I wanted a mural of something that I was inspired by,
so naturally I chose ~ the sea
I began there. with that mural
and found a place that will turn your photos into a
~ shower curtain ~
I loved the concept of sitting there,
the window open
a slight breeze flowing
and the fabric moving ever so slightly like the rippling of a wave...
I used those brilliant little removable wall hooks
to attach it to the wall,
as we are in a rental and that's a lot of holes to fill : )
next came the rug.
I am still seeking a soft, silk/wool rug that delights my heart
but for now,
this grey one will do.
every meditation room will be different
the important key is simply using what you love
and choosing things that evoke a calm beauty for your soul...
in my space,
you will find these white silk and sequin pillows
as I am a tactile person and yearn for lovely things to the touch
as well as to my eye,
and intoxicating soy candles...
for flames that dance as they flicker
...a lotus flower fountain
for a subdued, tranquil sound of flowing water
a lovely white orchid,
as a reminder to stand tall and elegant
no matter the conditions surrounding me...
to which I have placed within a beloved giant shell,
filled with white sand
with a few treasures tucked in
that have a special meaning to me...
I also added a curly willow branch
from a tree we planted on my mother's property when my son was 5 years old.
he is now 21, and that tree is tall and mighty indeed!
just like my son :)
filling my space
with elements that have a special pull
on my heart and on my soul...
I adore a little sparkle
so I strung crystals upon my overhead branch
along with a few white sparkly starfish and white silk lotus flowers...
and there you have it!
a place where I can listen to the whispers of my heart...
perhaps you will be inspired to design a little quiet space
for yourself in your home too!
using your pretties and secret treasures
to simply ~ just be ~
