Live Well

We've just finished a house for a beautiful client who's undergoing Chemo. We spoke about the importance of health and she mentioned how the material things in life have taken a back seat while she gets well.  Having said that, it's so lovely that she has an organised, crisp, light filled home to be in during her journey towards wellness.

It got us thinking about how our homes can promote wellness.  There are simple things you can do to improve your world.  De-clutter, organise and discard anything that no longer has meaning for you.   You don't need a big budget to achieve an interior that makes sense to you. Don't know where to start?   Press Control, Alt, Delete.  Push the button in your life to start afresh.  This creates clarity.

We've transformed peoples homes who have just come out of relationships.  They just want to start over with a new look home.  Makes sense right?  New you!  Here's our tips for your interior start over.

De-clutter.  Get rid of things without regret.  Go through your cupboards and throw out anything you  a) don't use b) don't like and c) is broken.  Then clean each drawer and shelf to begin the journey.

Lables - simple yet effective.  No one said you had to have clear containers.  Go white.  There's something timeless about black labels from the old label maker.  Think 1950s office filing systems for your kitchen.

Get some decent bowls, crockery and plates.  Something that you enjoy the look and feel of.  We use this every day!  Enjoy it and keep it neutral to stand the test of time.  We personally love a thin edged cup or mug.

Add some baskets in the living room for winter throws or bits and pieces that find their way into your living space.  They're' handy when a quick clean up is in order.

A simple pop of colour is enough.  We work on the ten percent rule.  Just enough to keep things interesting but not overkill.  Put your things in boxes out of site.  Check back in a month to see what you actually need and use.   Take the emotional attachment out of your de-clutter.  Its just stuff!
