Yes, indeed. We've all read and heard that it is time to take a pause during these unprecedented times. Spend more time with family at home, Stop the fast pace of running all over shopping and driving the kids to soccer practice, gymnastic classes, swim classes, where ever. I'm not saying anything new! So what's a gal in love with interior design to do?
I'd like you to take a different kind of pause. The one that involves finding moments in our home decor that let your eye take a rest/pause. How beautiful it is to realize there is one treasured photo on a table, rather than a collection.
Providing an over sized piece of art all alone at the end of a hallway can make one stop to admire or look at the intricacies within that the artist wanted to share.
Add a textural element to allow guests or you to take time to tactically enjoy a moment, whether it is a deliciously soft throw, cool sheets with a ridiculously high thread count, or some silly squishy toy with a sign that says hug me!
Finally, let's not forget the best teacher for showing that pausing can refresh, revitalize, and provide peace - NATURE.
Have a very safe, peaceful, happy Easter!
