EntrywayEntryway

    • Create an inviting and eye-catching entrance, both inside and out.
    • Include uplifting "greeters," such as a waterfall or piece of artwork.
    • Add bright and beautiful lighting so the pathway is safe and visible.
    • Place inspiring objects leading up to the door, like a meandering pathway and flowers.
    • Add plants, especially evergreens, which will stay lush all year.

Kitchen & Dining Area

    • Add seating, regardless of the size of the room.
    • Add warm lighting, like incandescent or halogen, which makes you and the food seem much more appealing.
    • Use rounded and oval tables.
    • Use white plates, as they allow the natural beauty of the food to be the focal point of the meal.
    • Incorporate soft, comfortable chairs that are of equal size.
    • Give each person and chair a pleasant view.
    • Add serene artwork or imagery of food.
    • Keep all areas including cupboards and pantry clean, neat and organized.

Living/Family Roomdining area

    • Use beautiful, yet comfortable and safe furniture.
    • Arrange the furniture so the room is inviting and easily accessible.
    • Never place seating against a wall ... instead move it away to create inviting conversation
    • Put the TV and other electrical equipment into a cabinet to be hidden from view when not in use.
    • Hang objects at the same height and create strong visual horizontal lines, especially when ceilings are extremely high.
    • Marry objects and face furniture together so they're in relationship to one another.

Home Office

    • Place your desk in the power spot, the area directly opposite the door and never ever against the wall.
    • Add sensual objects and artwork to inspire resourcefulness and productivity.
    • Bring in rounded shapes and move sharp-edged furniture out of the traffic flow.
    • Add healthy plants, which are beneficial to counter-balance the effects of electrical equipment.
    • Create a filing and storage system that is clearly labeled and easy to use.

Master Bedroombedroom

    • Sleep in the power spot, which is located directly opposite the door.
    • Add a solid headboard, ideally in a warm, friendly material such as wood or leather.
    • Replace bedding at least once a year to add a fresh, positive energy to the space.
    • Add romantic imagery or objects grouped in sets of two or pairs.
    • Have pictures of "couples" rather than "family" in this room.
    • Put a divider such as a door or curtain between bedroom and bathroom.

Master Bathroom

    • Create a beautiful, uplifting and organized space.
    • Add new linens, bath soaps, plants, soft lighting and other beautiful accessories.
    • Add a mirror to the door to help the bathroom visually disappear.
    • Put a divider between the bathroom and bedroom in master suites.
    • Add earth and fire elements.
