Kendall Ritz The Self-care expert for women

My team and I are huge advocates for self-care. In fact, my new book, Detoxing Clutter With Feng Shui hones in on the self realization that many women live in the conscious mind of “to-do’s” which ultimately has us making decisions from our logical mind rather than our hearts. Self-care is a dirty word to most women. The idea of finding simple pleasures through out the day brings an onset of shame, guilt and the ugly idea that you don’t deserve to self indulge because you have too much to do.

Nonsense! [Click here to continue reading]

Workable Wealth by Mary Beth Stojorhann

It's funny, for years I have talked about money here on the blog. To me, it's an important topic, especially for women. When I was starting to go through my divorce I didn't realize how little I really knew about money nor did I respect it. No longer would I choose to live in the dark. So I got educated, hunkered down and moved myself out of debt, while simultaneously going through a very expensive divorce. Click here to read more or go to our blog here

How to embrace the grey trend even if your home is mediterranean

I remember back in early 2001 designing homes in Vegas with a heavy tuscan look. It was all the rage. Faux paint, red chenille, tassels, travertine floors, and stone fireplaces. Gold, sage green and red mixed with heavy browns were everywhere. And this included are the hard surfaces too. The gold speckled granites, glazed cabinets, and oil rubbed bronze knobs.

Fast forward to now where everything is white and bright and those beige colors just look dirty and muddy! But if you're like most folks you've tried mixing in some fresh brights and they just fell flat! Or worse, maybe you hate your interior and just don't know where to start!

The Hunted Fox

Today’s guest is none other than Moana Dixon and James North of Hunted Fox. This design duo not only curates beautiful collections of unique one-of-a-kind things, but together they create and imagine new ways to look at home. Originally their vision was simple, to construct a line of home goods without constraints. No corporate rules, no by-the-book thinking just collecting for the sake of collecting and sharing with others what they had found. And with that Hunted Fox, a play on words based on their love of “the hunt,” was founded. Click here to read more

The keys to making it as a profitable artist with Taylor Spellman

Originally a dancer from Connecticut, Taylor made her way to New York City to make it big in a field she thought she was good at. What she quickly learned was that she had been a big fish in a small pond and in New York that no longer applied. She quickly adapted and decided to pivot into interior design. What makes Taylor different than most is that instead of getting a degree in design she pursued a degree in business; probably one of the best moves she could have made. Click here to read more

How to become sustainable even if you think you’re too busy

Living a sustainable life can seem complicated, right? The word sustainable in and of itself conjures up thoughts of complexity and only for those tree hugging hippies. But here’s the rub, being sustainable or green isn’t an all or nothing game. You can still have your daily conveniences without feeling like you’re sacrificing quality of life. However in the overall big picture it’s time to start doing something.

When I first started easing into sustainable practices I remember being completely overwhelmed. How the hell do you do it? And if you bring canvas shopping bags to the grocery store, but buy paper towels, are you a hypocrite? I sure thought so! I was overwhelmed and totally confused by what it really meant to be an environmentalist. And I certainly wasn’t hugging enough trees or eating enough granola to play in the big leagues of a so called sustainable life.
