This evening I had the pleasure of attending a piano recital of one of my closest friends daughters. it was a great night. The house was filled with family and friends. There was food, great wines and the mood was festive and happy. While I was watching my friends daughter, Alix play so beautifully and saw everyone happy and singing along, I appreciated my career so very much. I know that’s quite a random thought. As an interior decorator, people might think that “I make homes pretty.” But, there’s so much more to it, and this evenings events solidified that. The baby grand piano surrounded by wonderful, loving friends and family created the optimal environment for “happiness.” I speak of sensory spaces often. It’s utilizing specific colors, textures, sounds and smells to create an optimal space. It can be a difficult concept for many to grasp. The piano recital in my friends living room, is a perfect example of a sensory space. Colors, textures, cocooning furniture, sounds (the piano) and smells (delicious food) created the optimal environment for a blissful, happy experience. I love my friends and family and I love what i do. Tonight made me love it even more. Happy Memorial Day!
