Recently I was conducting a Space Clearing for a client who reported feelings of “stuckness” and lack of flow in some rooms of her home. In one room, in particular, I found myself quite “stuck” in a corner, like I couldn’t move out of the spot I was in.
Do you find your mood drops in winter? What about in dark rooms? I feel instantly lower in energy in dark spaces. And I’m a miserable sod in winter. If you're finding your mood drops as we approach cooler weather and darker days, check in with your space and see if...
We farewelled our beautiful King St studio last week, handing back the keys on Friday afternoon and promptly packing the camper to head north along the east coast of Australia. It’s a bittersweet feeling to let go of the studio, only it’s physical residence, purely...
By opening adjoining walls, we enabled a dual zone fireplace to link both the casual and formal dining zones – a welcome connection of spaces when entertaining with family and friends. Here we chat to Tina about the renovation.
