ACQUIRE WITH INTENTION
Focus on incorporating organic materials such as wood, stone and clay that have not been polished or engineered to appear new or artificial - a vase you found on a cherished vacation, fabric art you made yourself, or ceramics from a local market are all homespun elements that will enhance the warm, authentic feeling of your space.
Embracing mindfulness involves decorating with objects that are shaped naturally showing authentic asymmetries, irregularities and imperfections. Think hand-crafted pottery or wrinkled bed sheets, uneven wooden furniture, or irregularly shaped wall art.
Organic materials and elements from nature are major components of a peaceful home for the universally good vibes they instil. Incorporate wooden furniture, fresh flowers, and as many plants as your heart desires to achieve a perennially calm space.
Hail a sensibility that keeps possessions to a minimum by inviting only those things that bring nostalgia, beauty, utility, or a combination of all these into your home. Unlike a zealous minimalist who might get rid of a vase they like but doesn’t fit their aesthetic, a mindful subscriber will keep that vase just because it makes them happy.
