Introductions! Introductions all around. Welcome to the site. I’ll be posting regularly on interior design, art and creativity, sustainability and green design innovations.

My main focus is to demystify interior design, and give you useful design ideas that you can implement on your own. Sometimes it’s a matter of having a little faith, a little moxie, and a supportive friend to back you up.

I plan to dig deeper into what it means to be human and happy, and how our interior surroundings contribute to that and reflect our inner states. We’re all artists. All of us, even if what you do is not considered “art” in the conventional sense. When we stop trying to make ourselves into productivity robots and view our endeavors as creative, artistic acts, energy and imagination enter, resistance drops away, and life becomes just a little bit easier.

Most importantly, the perception of interior design needs to shift away from one of aloof luxury and the overconsumption of stuff to one of consciously choosing products and designing our spaces to enhance and nurture our lives and the health and well-being of our communities and our planet. This quote by Henry David Thoreau sums up my opinion on that

“What good is a house if you haven’t got a decent planet to put it on?”

So welcome again! Make yourself at home.
