somebody told us they chose us because every photo we posted on houzz made them happy...
i have a theory regarding why we hear that so often...
we do not consider ourselves interior designers.
we do not consider ourselves pickers of pillows,
arrangers of accessories,
finders of furniture...
we consider ourselves creators of happiness.
we are artists.
your home is our canvas, your things are our medium, your redesign is our art.
sulley senses this...
showing people the beauty in what they already have and love...
makes people happy!
but here is the thing...
YOU ARE AN ARTIST TOO.
it is a choice you make. a decision. a mind shift...
an artist is someone who uses bravery, insight, creativity, and boldness to challenge the status quo.
it is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue,
and so to make a few objects beautiful;
but it is far more glorious
to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look...
to affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.
from walden by henry david thoreau
i think everything in life is art.
what you do.
how you dress.
the way you love someone.
and how you talk.
your smile and your personality.
what you believe in and all your dreams.
the way you drink your tea.
how you decorate your home. or party.
your grocery list. the food you make.
how your writing looks.
and the way you feel.
life is art.
whatever you are, be a good one.
when you choose to be a creator of happiness,
the work you do, whatever it is, makes people happy.
and you get what you give.
christina for all
