I live in a studio apartment. This is nice for people who actually have separate rooms...


I enjoyed this article. No, we may not be able to physically alter are living spaces but we can use some of these suggestions to help us feel as though we have created a sacred space.


this sounds wonderful, but i live in a townhouse with limited lighting even though i am 5 blocks to the ocean. i am unable to knock walls out as well. i have no east windows. what should i do about colors in my 3 bathrooms for flow? are there any pictures/references i could refer to. i will be retirng in a couple of months. i need a change for my continuous stages of growth.

thank you


If one is an apartment dweller..

I do not have the choice to knock out walls facing any direction or installing windows to brighten my space. Artificial light may be my only option in a kitchen area that is a mere 6 x 8, which includes the counterspace and cupboards, refrigerator and stove, and sink! I have added plant life on the windowsill, which is merely a basement window that rolls out from the bottom (2nd floor apartment with dormers and slanted celings to boot!) Less is best in this space for sure... :)
