Why a beautiful home is the most important thing you can do for yourself – What our building site taught me about beautiful homes.
I remember when I put the two picture frames in our bedroom…
At that time we still lived in Malta (and actually on a ‘building site’). My husband was working like mad, trying to finish our house, but we weren’t happy. Our energy was very low and the excitement of living in our own house near the sea was leaving us.
I knew I just had to do something to make our house our home (or at least one room).
That’s why I set up the pictures in our bedroom. The frames matched our curtains and the pics showed old film stars having fun.
My husband was surprised by how much the energy level rose and how much happier the place both looked and felt.
No, it wasn’t always like this.
Our building site almost killed our passion for living in a nice environment.
Is the water running? Is the light working? That´s enough.
We were just surviving.
I didn’t care that instead of the living room we have a storage room for building materials. I didn’t care that every time I was going to the kitchen I have to step over the sack of cement.
Honestly, I was just glad that I have a space (a clean space) where I can sleep at night and actually dream about our perfect life.
Then our first daughter was born.
My father came to visit us and asked me if he can help me to wash the window.
I was happy he wants to help me but at the same time, it was so embarrassing.
I was holding our little Zoe and said:
“That´s OK, don’t worry about it, it will be dirty soon anyway”.
My father took the cloth and start working:
“It is not good and never will be. Believe it or not, It is affecting your mood and your behavior.”
After a few minutes, sunshine was coming into our kitchen again. And I felt thousands of times better.
I was holding our new baby and realized how absurd this is it:
- studying lighting design in a collage
- bachelor’s degree in textile and fashion design
- master’s degree in architecture
- years of experience as an architect in the Czech Republic and Malta
And then I finally get it when I look out thru the nice clean window.
You won’t believe how much our environment can affect us—it’s pretty incredible! When I realized this, I got curious and started studying Feng Shui and holistic interior design principles. Turns out, even our mood can be influenced by things like the way our furniture is arranged or how much light we have in our rooms.
