We are now experiencing the most advanced technological times in human history and even though we have more modern conveniences to serve our every need, we are also being bombarded with more chaos and stressful situations. One area where we may have some control, with the ability to create comfort and peace is in our personal interior surroundings. However if we are not conscious of how we are affected by our interior surroundings, it may become more stressful rather than comforting. Most of the time we are not completely aware of it, but many times we are aware of when it affects us negatively.
As Alain de Botton commented in his great book, The Architecture of Happiness, our moods “can become inconveniently vulnerable to the color of our wallpaper, or our sense of purpose may be derailed by an unfortunate bedspread.”
The solution may be to access the unique skills of a professional designer who can guide us to creating the best environment to meet many aspects of our needs on a daily basis. It takes a skillful and mindful consultant to help us understand the subtleties of a beautiful spaces that go beyond merely the decor.
“In aesthetics, the sublime is the quality of greatness, whether intellectual, physical, moral, metaphysical, aesthetic, spiritual, or artistic.”
