The average American home has several rooms...room for sleeping, room for cooking and eating, room for the children and their toys, room for bathing, room for living....and are decorated accordingly.
If you are quite fortunate you may have a room for creativity, hopefully, you at least have a corner or a desk somewhere that is all your own, used for your creative pursuits. This space, this creative space, is much more difficult to decorate. How does one decorate for a space where anything can happen? How do you create a space for something which is not yet realized?

In our studio, Braxton and I have our desks at one end of the room and the other end is where we plan to have a sofa, chairs, tables and soft lighting for our thinking and planning time. We have a looong way to go, but are taking steps in the right direction. (photos later in the week.)

- What is the main energy I want in this space, what specific activity is the space intended for?
- What works best for me and how do I need to feel in order to preform this activity?
Ms. Tchi suggests applying these tips in order to attract positive creative energy...
- Have elements from nature (plants etc.)
- Have strong blocks of color and movement (art, music etc.)
- Display your successful projects...very important in my opinion
- Create a "no rules" area....make all the mess you want.
