Eclectic Room

When designing a space I often begin with an anchor piece, a design element that can help transform an entire room. Although it may require some patience for the right anchor piece to come your way it is worth the wait and can add major style points to your home. Whether its is a vintage rug full of washed hues, a stunning piece of art that makes you smile each time you glance it’s way or a pair of perfectly tailored drapes that dangle with elegance, the anchor piece is the foundation of your space. Lately, my eyes have been fixed on vintage Turkish rugs. And although I have pinky promised to not purchase any more rugs, you can’t keep this lady from looking. Full of faded and fabulous vintage beauty Turkish rugs warm the look of any style from modern to traditional to eclectic to transitional.

Dawn to Dusk

Time to time the holes I keep hidden deep in my soul can drain me. We all have them, flaws, failures, disappointments, hurt, regrets.

It is a frustrating feeling because I have so much around me to be grateful for {and I am}. But the heart is a powerful muscle and no matter how much I try to ignore the slow and steady leak, it always seems to catch up to me.

In the midst of the holiday scuffle often times I feel caught up in words and tangled in my thoughts. It feels effortless to sit in the dark spaces at times, dwelling on past traditions that are no longer and a life that hasn’t quite gone exactly how I had planned.

As the tears began to water my soul I realized there should be no shame or regret in the holes of my heart, because through the holes is where the light shines in. I love, love what Jennie Allen blogged a few months ago 

“Emotions make terrible destinations but very helpful compasses”.

I am reminded that in the wrestling brings awareness and awareness brings change. For me change of heart and surrender to the life I do not control takes practice. Like playing an instrument to be sound and beautiful you must practice. The practice is what helps shift my focus to the emotions of today free from the holes of yesterday so I can sit with my compass in the quiet spaces of my heart and let the light shine in.
