Flowers at the end of the season are open, brimming with joy and exuberant in their fuzzy glow. It’s my favorite floral thing to do, finding rare bunches of end-of-season blooms and capturing the last moments of their bursting happiness for the year.
Positive, loving, open, warm, happy….and almost fuzzy in their glow. It’s magic.
We all need positive, loving, open, warm, happy spaces everywhere in life. The core of feng shui itself explains that your home mirrors your life; the more buzzing and excited energy you create, the more you will be fed greatness by your environment.
We call these spaces that are positive, loving, open, warm and happy things like inspired, sacred and dreamy.
This should be the energy of your whole home, every single day.
More positivity fuels a more positive everything.
Let’s do this!!!
Raise the roof! Brighten the ceiling of your rooms. You heard me: the ceiling! What about a glossy coat of paint…or simply getting up on a ladder and clearing the ceiling corners to shine and spritzing with a little bit of aromatherapy spray to polish things even more?!
Purify the air. Air purifiers are by far my favorite treat these days. I use a light-based air purifier- Light Air– that glows like a UFO and makes positively no noise. Its a dream. And the air feels amazing.
Add fragrance. Create your own layers of scent at home. HERE is some of my favorite DIY aromatherapy to get the deliciously natural scents going…!
Stun with natural greenery. THESE airplants are my favorite for spaces that need a supernatural boost.

Rainbows. Colors in a spectrum bring spectrums of energy to everything in your space!
Flood the day with great thoughts. An inspirational quote on your desktop or phone’s locked screen may be cliche, but it works!
Display the best memories!!! Fill at least one spot in your home or office with beautiful photographs or memorabilia of amazing memories.
Make sure all your stuff “sparks joy” as Marie Kondo says in her groundbreaking book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. And I’ve said a version of it for years…Objects have energy. If you pick up something and feel no joy from it, get rid of it!
Leave room to grow. My friend just moved into a spacious office. The walls are clear but the space itself is so full of energy and color in furniture and activity…. it seems right to have lots of space. We humans like to stuff space with stuff… but leaving open walls or open areas that are clear and radiant is a way to have more room to grow!
Take pride in your housekeeping. Need a little motivation to get your cleaning done? Well: it will make your whole life better. HERE are 8 ways more specifically it will make your life shine!
And… live in love!!!

Hi, Dana – Love your blog! I just relocated from sunny Cali to NYC – going from a two-bed apartment to a studio (albeit a lovely one). I have good natural light (a must) but the space is small. I think it makes the most sense to keep my bed and couch along the same wall (with my bed furthest from the entry door) but some friends have advised putting them on opposite walls. I’m known to be a very positive person and I want to keep the positivity flowing through my new home! Thank you for your informative blog posts!
hi! thank you! i’d focus on creating a balanced room so all furniture isn’t on one side… so balance first! it isn’t “bad” to have both on one wall but make sure the other wall isn’t sort of empty 🙂
