Resting Your Eyes

It is time to rest our eyes.  To "calm down" your living space this January, why not strip the room of excess color and introduce a few layers of white & cream.  You can try softening the room with the glow of candlelight.  The votives shown above were cooling on a tray after being filled with melted beeswax.  Have you ever smelled beeswax?  Heaven!

Maybe you could add a fleece throw in the palest shade of pink.  Change the lampshade to a neutral cream or white.  Remove the extra items from the room to give your eyes a rest.  Instead of stacks of newspapers and magazines, place the one book you are reading on a side table.

Now breathe. A little less visual "noise" will do us all a some good as we welcome the new year.
