It’s been longer than usual since my last TouchPoint edition. Like most people, I have been slacking, following in rhythm with this pandemic. It has been challenging to stay
on track, given the comforts of home and family. I must admit I adore staying in with my husband, children, and dog. We are a goofy bunch that loves to laugh, eat, and stay cozy at home.
Many of you had decided to reorganize the home during these challenging times. Seems kind of obvious, now that having a functional, shared space has become
critical. Others have decided to start organizing when confronted with the holiday decorations. Taking your holiday decorations down is a defining moment that makes
all the difference in the process next year. Taking down your holiday décor, organizing it for storage, deciding what to let go of… As you start organizing this area, you will probably find inspiration to tackle the garage or attic, (wherever you store all that seasonal décor). Then you will get motivated to continue throughout the house. Such
is the nature of the organizing process.
This is the moment to call My Space Reclaimed! Book your appointment to start the process the right way.
Come and see our revamped website featuring a new look and new services.
Organization is the most fundamental process when transforming our space. However, to make your space transformation transcend, the space energy and design should not be ignored.
After decluttering and organizing your home, your life should be easier. When we apply the principles of Feng Shui, energy flows better and we become empowered to
achieve our life goals.
Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese practice of managing, balancing, and harmonizing our environment, attuning it to the energy around us. Everything in the universe is
connected by vital energy. This energy is called “Ch’i”. All aspects of a person’s life can be improved if Ch’i is channeled in balance.
Once organized and energetically balanced, your home is primed to complete its transformation journey with Design. Design is what makes the home that place where you truly belong – the home that invites you in and makes you proud.
With our virtual design program, the process of redesigning your home should not be the nightmare you might fear. It is as simple as 1-2-3. Look at our design process and be amazed by how fun and simple it is!

Welcome To A World Of Color
Speaking of color, I recently became certified as a Master Color Consultant! The world of color is vast, complex, and deep, with an infinite number of avenues. I have learned why neutral colors are so hard to work with; It’s all about undertones and light. Once you look at colors in a different way, you cannot unsee it!
Suddenly the world makes a little more sense – It just seems more alive.
