Creating a Home that Resonates
Elements of Rejuvenation & Joy
The elements of designing one's dwelling simply involves space, light, color, material, scent and the integration of living accents. Only you know what resonates with you, what relaxes you, what recharges you ... if not, that's OK, too.
After all, life is discovery and learning about the world and very importantly, about ourselves and our place in this universe!
To start, how much space do you have to work with and once personalized, would it still look like a spacious sacred place within which one can feel at comfortable and at ease? If you are one who values balance or if you veer in one direction or the other, adjust positive and negative space in a way that allows your energies to be recharged.
Any space would be as lifeless and useless without its magical simplicity and joy. Depending upon the purpose of a given space, and whether we want to create mood or support function, light temperature and lumens need to be selected accordingly. The only exception would be accent lighting that might go in either direction.

If you´re looking for much more detail than that, then you´re overthinking it. Visualizing and designing your space is something that is felt and experienced as is the atmosphere that results ... from the elements listed above, some will resonate with you. Simply harmonize them in each space. That is the Bohemian way ~
