Grace Note

“It seems like we constantly live in the future, always out of step with our present, always one season ahead. Always needing some new thing or the other in order to have the perfect life/ perfect home. I completely understand that  is how businesses have to work and I love the home catalogs and have hoarded many but as you go about your day, I want to leave you with a gentle reminder: your home is about you and the people you share your life with. Yes, it should be filled with beautiful things that give you pleasure every time your eyes fall on them. You marvel at the colors, the textures, the prints and patterns, the skill of the artisan. But it isn’t only about objects and things. As clichéd as this may sound, it’s about love, beautiful thoughts, kindness and compassion. Of being aware of your blessings. I don’t mean this in a naive, feel good, one size fits all way. Don’t you think every kind thought, word or gesture makes your surroundings more beautiful?”
