Post image for Creating A Desirable Shower Space

Have you ever taken a shower in a beautiful hotel or resort and felt more refreshed and relaxed than you ever thought possible? I remember feeling that way after staying in Costa Rica last year. Although the shower was indoors, I felt like I had just showered in nature, and it was a beautiful thing. Nature has the ability to bring us back to our roots, making us feel calmer, more relaxed, and grounded. Read more »

Wow, it already looks relaxing. I love the idea of the eucalyptus because it looks good and feels good. When you look good and feel good you know the day is going to be good. Thanks for your wonderful idea! http://www.swankdecorgiftsandmore.com/listing.asp?dept_id=10010&nopopup=1

Just out of curiosity, how long can you keep the eucalyptus in there? Source: Bathroom Home Decor Ideas – Creating A Natural and Desirable Shower Space http://blog.freepeople.com/2013/04/creating-desirable-shower-space/#ixzz3OK0hzcZz

Post image for A Dark Rose Jewelry Display

It used to be that I kept all of my jewelry in one spot in my bedroom. All my necklaces and bracelets were hung on a little white jewelry stand, and my rings were in a silver dish next to them. But in recent months I’ve begun to display my jewelry throughout my house, incorporating it into my décor. I think this breathes new life into the jewelry, and it always makes me feel like I’m living a story every time I take a piece off or put one on. Read more »

Post image for The Houseplant You’ll Never Kill

I’ve always been a houseplant lover. I love the energy they bring into a home and how a plant-filled room has the ability to make you forget you’re even inside. The only problem I have with houseplants is that I physically cannot keep them alive. Even the ones that are supposed to be un-killable, like aloe. I killed an aloe plant, and it makes me sad to think about it. Read more »

PHILODENDRONS ARE POISONOUS TO CATS! Do not keep as a houseplant with kitties in the house!
Becky -Apr 03, 2015, 8:04AM
Philodendrons also thrive under fluorescent lights, so they're good for the office. I can return to work on Monday and see how it's grown toward the light. I think they also help improve air quality. It's the one plant I don't kill!

Post image for Decor Inspiration: Collecting Ceramics

I’m currently going through a decor phase where I want to collect all kinds of ceramics. I keep searching and searching for unique vases, bowls, cups, plates, you name it. I love the idea of filling a whole shelf with ceramic vases for plants, like my inspiration tear above, or having that unique coffee cup just nestling in the kitchen.

My parents have been making ceramics since forever, and our house is full of wonderfully unique, handmade pieces. They are part of a club at the local community college and have huge sales each semester- and all at student prices! It's a great place to get one-of-a-kind pieces that you can microwave, bake in, and put plants in :) support your local artists... Aloha

How great idea that you decorated your place with your sunglasses! It's creative and also pretty! It goes very well with your brick wall, and I like you decorated with some woods and threads. I'll do this too in my room. Thank you for sharing :)

Post image for Décor We Love: Flowers In Unexpected Places

I grew up surrounded by flowers. My mom was a beautiful gardener and horticulture expert, and I was incredibly lucky to grow up with a big backyard that was completely covered in the liveliest plants and most beautifully arranged gardens I’ve ever seen. One step into the backyard and you’d feel as though you had just stepped into a dream. Read more »

Post image for Create An Optimistic Home

During the cold months of winter, it’s sometimes hard to stay positive. The days are shorter and many of us don’t spend much time outdoors, meaning we’re seeing much less of our main energy source – the beautiful sun! I think that our level of happiness for the day can be set from the moment we wake up, which is why I begin with my home. Read more »

Post image for How To Cleanse Your Home

Over the holidays I was given a gift from Kim Krans from The Wild Unknown. As soon as I opened the box the smell refreshed the air around me. Inside was a bundle of wild harvested black sage, Mexican sage, juniper, lavender, lemon verbena, jasmine, lupine, cedar, breath of heaven, and roses. Hanging delicately from a tie dyed ribbon was this quote:

“Strike another match, start anew”

~ Bob Dylan

What a fantastic gift! I smudge pretty often, too. Usually on new moons. You can cleanse your aura with it, as well. 0:)
Fawn -Mar 26, 2013, 11:15AM
I absolutely agree with Lindsey, but I also think that herbs aren't only allowed to be used by one group of people. We are all connected to the Earth, and if we walk peacefully with purpose, intent, and respect, then there is no reason to feel guilty about burning any herb. It crosses a line when you falsely advertise that you are one of the First People, or mock sacred rituals, or disrespect native culture in any way. I would not wear a headdress or attend a seminar on "shamanism" because I find it disrespectful. I do, however, burn sage to cleanse my house from negativity and use local plants in rituals. I do not claim to be of First People descent, nor do I claim to have any authority on their spiritual practices. Indigenous traditions develop in relation to local flora and fauna, geology and weather. Even though I am of European ancestry I find that it makes more sense to adapt my personal spirituality to my environment. This includes using sage, mint, cedar etc, and learning from local animals such as hawk, coyote, chipmunk, etc. This is where I live and these are the spirits around me. There will obviously be overlap with native beliefs because well, the First People were here first. While cultural appropriation needs to brought to the attention of people who may be naive/ignorant and don't think about what they do I think it's organic and natural to use local/American plants for cleansing rituals. This has been done all over the world, in so many cultures, for thousands of years. It is part of our shared knowledge as humans. Just please don't wear a headdress unless you have a legitimate reason. My two cents, whatever it's worth.
