Quote of the day: Pambamboo
The reason we feel bad when we discard possessions our mind tells us we are discarding our 'self'. The mind equates being with stuff. And the mind does not want you to get rid of being - or even to recognize that attachments actually hinder our journey to happiness.
This week is a bit of a reprieve. Ahead is the home stretch and behind are the biggest trouble spots. This week pulls back to focus on your bathroom - a place of function and luxury. If you are fascinated with toothpaste, this may give you a chuckle. It also delivers a sermon on lighting, potentially the most important single aspect of interior design in the home. Big hugs to elizabeth in AL for her sharing ;-).
This Week's Assignment:
In the deep treatment the overall theme is peacefulness. As you clean out your bathroom(s), I want you to get to a point where you are able to put some calming luxury back into them. If you don't have them already, there are some purchases to be made here that can change your bathroom experience.
In the One Room Remedy take a good look at the lighting in your home. I find that most homes are underlit and that most that seem drab or uninspired could be turned around simply by addressing the lighting alone. Get adventurous! Lighting can be very affordable and different kinds of lights will really make your home leap to life. Oh, and there's some painting to do this week for some. Enjoy our small tutorial on how to paint a room. It's basic, but we find that it always helps to remember it when we're painting a room.
Info:The Cure posts will go up twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays (or sometimes Friday or Saturday), allowing for plenty of comment space.
