Simply @Home, The Art of Home Part Two

I worked for a company once that created a product that did not fit into a defined market segment of the time. They were not Product A market segment exactly, nor were they Product B’s market segment either. They had solved the “problem” different and came up with Product C which the industry did not track ~nor like because it did not fit into THEIR box.  One of the corporate goals was to create  a market segment for their product. It took five years but they did. Now, there are many players in that new and competitive market.

I feel that way when I try to explain what the Art of Home really is to people. It’s not just about home interiors, designs and decorating. Not that segment. And it’s not entirely focused on our self-care, inner being and wellness either. Not that segment. So to me it’s that same dilemma of creating a new term, a new something. Thus the art of home. It’s about both the inner and outer world of that place we call home. Read more

Expand, Contract

Do you remember the first place that you called “yours?” Mine, it was a small and old Victorian in a not so good part of town that I shared with a housemate. I started with only a futon mattress on the floor, peach and black colored plastic milk crates stacked on their sides as a makeshift open face dresser and a garage-sale playpen served as a crib for my very young son. It was all I could afford and I had no other furniture to my name. Read more

Yin your Yang Space

Is your room balanced? Do you have too much Yang material or too little? Do you even know? Ideally, a balanced room is one you naturally gravitate towards and feel good when you are in it. In the world of Feng Shui, the masculine and female are presented through color, size, texture, and composition. Unknowingly, you might prefer materials that are more Yang than Yin or vice versa. To bring a room together like a fine symphony, you want a representation of both the masculine and feminine, for what would Mozart’s Symphony #29 be like if only played with the bass and oboe but no violins?
