Creating Positive Spaces: An Inside Out Approach to Healing Environments

Posted by Saige Robb on

by Saige Robb
Entering the New Year is a perfect time to reflect, set new goals, and reenergize and reevaluate different areas of our lives including physical, emotional, spiritual, professional, creative, and interpersonal relationships.  While some  New Year’s Resolutions can take months or even years to fulfill, we believe positive change starts at home and in the spaces and environments we surround  ourselves with.  This guide to creating positive spaces at your home and office includes quick tips and energetic shifts to provide you with a strong foundation for your most creative and fulfilling year yet!
 
  1. White Sage for Energy Clearing
Lift the energy of your space and clear the way for new love, success, and achievements with White Sage.  This 2,000 year old Indigenous American practice is also sometimes called “smudging”, and is an energy clearing practice said to absorb all negative energies in your home clearing energetic pathways.  Great times to “smudge”: before starting a new job or business venture, moving into a new home or refreshing your space, after an argument or illness, and before and after having guests. 
To smudge your space, light dried white sage and place on a heat-proof surface like a glass jar or dish.  Walk with the sage and raise the smoke to corners, doorways, entrances, and shadowed areas like closets or dark hallways.  Focus on clearing negativity and stale emotions and energy from your space.
 
  1. Feng Shui for Love & Success
If your space is feeling a little stagnant, before you run to HomeGoods to reaccessorize, try rearranging your existing space through Feng Shui.  Although most homes in the West are not designed with Feng Shui in mind, small Feng Shui additions can be added to any home to majorly boost your opportunities and success.  Choose a few areas you’d like to concentrate on and try to implement the colors listed or fresh new energy like a new plant, painting, or even an aquarium or small fountain in these areas of your home or office can help you attain the wealth, love, and abundance you desire. 
 
  1. Surround yourself with pieces that inspire you and things you love
The best way to start a new year is by clearing out things that no longer serve you, to make space for the life you want and deserve.  Take a look at your home and office, are there things lingering that don’t reflect who you are and what your want?  A wall that could use some rejuvenating or would you like to create a more restful bedroom?  Consider original art.  Not only does it change the look and feel of any room it adorns, having something handmade and born out of inspiration in your space reflects the time, commitment and creativity that will inspire your life as well.  Embedding something beautiful that connects with your soul into your home will inject a positive sentiment into your day every time you see it.
 
 
These oil paintings by Carre D’Artistes Artist, Angel Angelov, reflect the beauty in all seasons and times of day, reminding us that nothing blooms all year round. See the paintings on our website or in the gallery.

5 Reasons to Buy Original Art

Posted by Saige Robb on

By Saige Robb

The holiday season is upon us, and with it comes decisions on where to shop and what to buy for your home and loved ones. We can help!

Here are the top 5 reasons you should consider original art to spread holiday cheer this season:

 

1. Become Your Own Curator

buy original artAt Carré D’Artistes Philadelphia, we encourage our clients and visitors to experiment. Allow whatever draws your attention to guide you when looking at art.

Guests often ask, “Can I mix artists and styles?” The answer is YES!

What makes a space "your space" is your unique vibe and style, which you can create over time as you select and grow your original art collection.

Over the years, your style may evolve to include different looks. Whenever you decide to start an original art collection, your artwork will serve as a vibrant living reminder of moments and memories throughout your life.

 

2. Add Instant Conversation Pieces

Visually, original artwork is a powerful storyteller.

This doesn't just apply to the artist who created the work, which we so often discussed in museums and Art History classes for centuries after its creation. Artwork is a unique visual insight into the owner’s life and passions.

When a new guest comes into your home or a new client visits your business, artwork serves as a beautiful icebreaker for conversation.

That painting you bought on an amazing vacation, the wedding gift you received from a close friend, a piece that has your child’s name inscribed on it; all of this serves as a natural way to connect with people about the story of celebrations, important days, travel memories, and new chapters.

Cocktail parties have a much more fluid feel when great original art is present, serving as a way for guests to become acquainted not only with you and your space, but also with each other in a whole new way.

3. Fill Your Space With Energy Boosters

We take in so much information from sensory cues in our environment.

Original art has its own powerful energy to heal, inspire, uplift, and transcend the present moment.

This theory is taking hold in hospitals, businesses, restaurants and private homes throughout the world as we become more in-tune with creating nurturing, positive spaces.

A great piece, with texture and color or an inspiring image can serve as a visual anchor to feelings of positivity and gratitude.

This is especially powerful with children, as the presence of original artwork inspires imagination and sparks the curiosity of so many young friends.

Here's a powerful idea: place a piece that inspires you or evokes positive feelings right near your front door, so when you enter the world and when you return home you have a consistent reminder to look up and tap into your happiness.

 

4. Create Wow Factor Focal Points

buy original art - LOVEOriginal art can be an impressive statement that brings power and centrality to your space.

In commercial spaces and businesses, art can often be an influencing factor drawing in customers and clients. It can help speak to the level of taste and attention to detail the business will provide as a whole.

In your home, imagine a friend walking into your home to see a new, bold piece hung in the center of your living room, drawing together the room and your home in a whole new way.

The only response? "Wow."

 

5. Support Emerging Artists Globally

buy original art - ParkwayAt Carré D’Artistes Philadelphia, we are fortunate to exhibit 15 incredible international artists.

Each piece displayed in our gallery is one-of-a-kind, a direct handmade work of art delivered straight from the artist to your waiting wall space.

With so much fast fashion and fast decor in the world, original artwork will not break down over time. Great art only gains the prestige and esteem of a beautiful work becoming better with time.
