Decorating Tips for Balance and Empowerment
“It’s like having your lingerie out there when you open up your front door it’s all your intimate stuff.”
Carole Shashona says it like it is, even when talking interior design.
“Don’t put a desk in the bedroom. Don’t put an office table, certainly don’t work from the bed itself,” says Shashona, of Sensory Interior Design.
The feng shui master is trained to use objects, color and scent to help you transform your home into a temple of empowerment..
She’s worked in this L.A. home one on one with actress and producer Illeana Douglas.
“Because I use this as a workspace, it was becoming almost a production office with computers out and working all the time,” Douglas says.
According to Shashona, working from a dining room can block family and friend energy, to fix it they created a small work environment for Illeana.
“I like that the office is my office… and I have all my things in there, Douglas says. “It’s inviting it makes you feel good.”
There are other simple moves you can make including putting out fresh flowers and fruit to bring a sense of newness to your space.
“Those are all the gifts of nature and it’s color and texture, it’s fruitful. You want to live a fruitful life. It’s abundance,” according to Shashona.
Mirrors help with flow in your home, but make sure the mirror always reflects something beautiful.
And don’t forget scent. Pleasant smells, according to Shashona can help you create the life you want..
According to Shashona, “You can create it. In harmony and balance and have a good time doing it.”
