…JUST BE YOU?
It’s so boring when everyone is the same. Let your unique light shine!
… READ ABOUT ETTORE SOTTSASS?
The designer was among the greatest in the world, and with the trend for Memphis style we’re seeing in fashion and furniture, it’s a great time to become reacquainted with his amazing legacy.
… LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE?
Every culture has its own little nuances that can only be understood if you speak the language. It’s worth the effort because you get to see the world from another perspective.
…INVEST IN HANDCRAFTED PIECES?
Handcrafted furniture and accents bring a sense of harmony and joy that can’t be mass manufactured. You’ll bring a lot of happiness to the maker as well.
Think about your needs and how they change throughout the day, and then give yourself multiple options – from bright and practical to soft and subdued. Lighting can transform your outlook (literally and figuratively).
…GO SOMEWHERE NEW BY YOURSELF?
There’s nothing more restorative than some precious alone time, especially when you’re encountering the unknown. These moments give you insight into who you are and who you want to be.
…EXPLORE THE DECORATIVE SECTION OF A MAJOR MUSUEM?
Institutions like the V&A in London and The Met in New York offer miles of gorgeous artefacts from other times and places. I get so much inspiration studying exotic objects made with outstanding skill and passion. www.vam.ac.uk
