Making Your Own Environment: Conscious Home Design

Create the best version of your own world, your true nest, with Vastu conscious home design. "What I am doing, slowly, is making my own environment, room by room, as artists do." I recently found this quotation and illustration from artist David Hockney in a recent issue of Architectural Digest magazine, right after moving into my new cottage. It reminded me that this is exactly what I do for myself and my clients--- and that my expertise and skill as both an artist and a Vastu conscious home design consultant are applied in each home project that I undertake for my clients. Interior designer Albert Hadley has said that "Rooms should not be put together for show, but to nourish...

Create Beauty Around You: Design, Vastu, Art, & Sacred Space Services

Create beauty around you! Beauty is a requirement in Vastu, a requirement for which I am grateful, since I'm an artist and very inspired and nourished by beauty. Creating beauty around you should be legally required, since it has such a positive impact on the world! I write about beauty quite a bit in my book Vastu: Transcendental Home Design in Harmony with Nature.  This is a personal Shiva altar in my home. It's a little corner of a bookcase on which I've installed a small Miriam Kasin watercolor painting from 1974 when I was on Vedic Studies Program in Europe with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. I added an empty organic perfume bottle with a sprig of dried hydrangea in an...

When you're happy, everything flows to you. When you're centered, everything comes to you. Meditate. Create. Let the...
