Gallery walls are alright and all, but wall hangings are an A+ way to immediately add a little texture and movement to a space. Take a page out of those interiors from the 60’s and 70’s with a few of these DIYs…

One of my ultimate interior dreams is to own an Eames Lounger. In my ideal situation, I’d stumble upon one at a thrift store, take it home and basically never get up again. It’s pretty amazing how it works with just about any interior style.
Pairing it with a sheepskin seems like the obvious choice but this serape blanket is calling my name. Just really sexy.
Graphic patterns, lots of texture play and a giant cactus. Yeah, this could be my bedroom, y’all.
This delicious tan paired with the vintage needlepoints and exposed brick… mercy.
This Portland Midcentury renovation is just too good to be true. Flip through the slideshow — you won’t be sorry.
Who knew that a cowhide rug and Eames chair could be two peas in a pod? Texas AF.
Spring cleaning can be a real bitch. And just reorganizing our mountains of shoes and getting our office desk in order isn’t enough to properly cleanse our space. Energy tends to pile up (just like our junk mail) and it’s essential to clear the air and make room for the new energy coming in. If you’re new to the world of smudging, here’s a quick rundown…
Smudging is all about casting out negative vibes and energy and bringing you back into a state of harmony and balance. It’s important to cleanse your space because energy tends to build up. And when things get a little cluttered, it can lead to some seriously stagnant and troubling vibes.
A smudge kit usually consists of four or five pieces, each representing one of the four or five elements. Here’s what you’ll need:
- A shell to represent Water
- Unlit herbs to represent Earth
- Lit herbs to represent Fire
- Smoke to represent Air
Everyone’s smudging rituals are different, so do whatever works for you and your unique space. Here are a little bit of my basic ritual to get you started…
Make sure that you’ve set the intention to clear the space and yourself of negative energy. Make sure the herbs are in a receptacle (abalone shell), light them and gently blow them out. Hold the stick over each body part and think of this as a smoke shower. I start at my feet and work my way up. Once I reach my face, I cup my hands over the stick and ‘toss’ the smoke into my face.
Once I am finished with myself, I set another intention for my space and get started. I make sure the doors are open (it’s also worth noting that windows should be open but mine seem to be painted shut) so that the energy has a way to clear out. I go to each corner of the room, outlining each door and window, until every corner and outline has been smudged. It’s crazy how well it works… and it’s actually been scientifically proven to improve one’s mood. I’ll take it!
The Numinous also did a really in-depth post on interior cleansing here.
How do you cleanse your space?
I’ve been obsessively buying cacti for the house lately… I just can’t seem to get enough. Perhaps it’s wishful thinking that I’m ready for that hot Texas weather to stick around or because they just seem so at home in my space. Either way, I’ll take it.
Absolutely loving this Doublefaced series from Berlin-based artist Sebastian Bieniek. What would your doubleface look like?
