Natural daylighting can boost your mood, improve your health, support circadian rhythm, and enhance the appearance and value of your home… if properly designed.
Black, white, and grey are shades referred to as achromatic, which literally means "without color".
These non-colors have been loved by the home design and real estate industry, but are they really the best choices for creating a happy home?
We are mentally and emotionally impacted by our surroundings, whether we consciously realize it or not. The science of neuroaesthetics helps us understand more about how we’re affected by the built environment around us.

In the final post of Pippin’s Inspired Life series, I share with you my heart. I introduce you to my true love and forever partner in life and in business, Wes Stearns.

Have you ever noticed how life takes you on a wild ride even when you’re certain you’re on the right path? It can almost feel like being tested to see if you’re really serious. And even though there are challenges along the way, there are also moments of pure elation and a depth of inspiration that floods your entire being, reinforcing the notion that you are, in fact, exactly where you’re meant to be.
Let’s be honest, there are likely aspects of your home that literally make your life harder.
You may love your home, yet the obstacles it presents need to change if you plan to live there for many more years.
Or perhaps you’ve grown so accustomed to these challenges that you don’t even realize the impact it’s having on your life.
Let’s be honest. Life changes as you grow and often that means outgrowing your home. In order for your home to continue supporting you and inspiring the life you intend to live; some changes need to be made.
Yet sometimes it’s hard to envision how the home you’ve been living in could EVER meet your current or future needs and desires. When the only thing your home is inspiring you to do is get a bulldozer and level it, we’re here with fresh eyes to help create more options for you.

It didn’t take me long to realize I had greater gifts and so I chose to step into my power and create my own path in life, inspired by my heart’s true passion. (More on my personal story HERE!)
