Chapter 2: The Messy and the Miraculous
– Our hearts always defy the “impossible”.

 

Keep in mind, as you take a virtual tour of the house that became my new-life home in 2011…

The ENTIRE house, including ALL walls, doors, kitchen cupboards and fridge,
were a dirty-white colour throughout, and bare!

The whole house looked so sad.
So I chose to not take photographs before I transformed it.
(It felt good to not keep a record of the old energy.)

I love the transformative power of colour! 

All the decor you’ll see throughout the house was added from my own belongings.
Everything I had, found its perfect purpose!

 

I chose Mexican-inspired colours for the large kitchen, laundry space and dining area.

I chose an ocean theme for the bathroom that extended out into the open corner.

For the parlour area which I turned into my creativity room,
I mixed the leftover kitchen paints together to create a vibrant terra cotta colour.

chapter2t

chapter2v

(I even painted the dirty-white fridge a warm cinnamon colour.)

chapter2j

I chose a “Goddess room” theme for the living room.
I built a huge wall-sized shelf from beautiful scrap wood I found in a shed (I sanded/sized it).
I painted the walls in a rich purple colour.
Even though every room felt sacred to me in its own way,
this particular room felt like my special sacred space where I journalled, meditated, read…

I used the same yellow as the kitchen for the upstairs hallway.
I had just enough paint left to do that!

chapter2x

I chose an “Earth” theme for my bedroom.
I was able to use leftover laminate flooring stored in a shed,
to cover the psychedelic-coloured linoleum of this room
(for which I was sooo grateful!).

chapter2zd

I chose a “Sky” theme for the spare bedroom and used the same blue as the bathroom.
Again, I had just enough paint left to do that!
Everything worked out so magickally.

chapter2ze

I received two single beds for this room, that had white head/foot boards.
A perfect fit with the theme (like white clouds).
