Beautiful!  I can’t help but smile when I see the word.  Beautiful can mean something different to all of us.  Webster’s Dictionary meaning is:  having qualities of beauty: exciting aesthetic pleasure.  Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder!  However, I think we can all agree that when being surrounded or viewing something that is beautiful to us, it makes us feel good.  Radiates “good vibes”. 

I was chatting it up the other day with a fellow interior designer whom I haven’t seen in nearly 10 years!  Crazy how time passes us by!  We were comparing notes in how we are evolving as women, personally, professionally and as interior designers.  Sharing all sorts of ideas regarding social media, staying current with technology and just what we are doing to get out there!  We both stressed the importance of assisting our clients in finding their own style.  Good design is subjective.  However, if it reflects who you are, functions well in your space and supports your needs, you will feel so incredibly fabulous in your space! 

We need, now more than ever, to make beautiful choices for our lives; beautiful friendships nurtured in loving words, soulful music, inspiring books and movies.  The arts are incredibly influential and their influence should never, ever be discredited. The arts feed our soul, speak to our heart and lift our mind to greater, loftier thoughts.  Today, choose to make beautiful choices in your life!  Start with what you bring into your home and see if it doesn’t make you feel a lil’ bit more beautiful, lighter and happier!
