Creating a Welcoming Sanctuary

Today I’m thrilled to be interviewed in the brand new issue of Laura U Mag, on how to create a welcoming sanctuary in your home.

Amongst other things, you can learn about the role that teaspoons played in forcing me to get more organized!

Hopefully you’ll enjoy the whole issue, which features a spectrum of green living tips, but if you’re impatient for organizing advice, scroll to page 112 to hear from yours truly. The piece was written by Shannon Ables, and I warmly encourage you to take a peek also at her wonderful blog, The Simply Luxurious Life.

  1. Congrats, Pauline! I must say, I am quite impressed by your media prowess, and all the connections you’ve made! It’s great to see you getting attention through different media. :-)

    Wonderful interview, too. I love your tip about focusing on the bedroom and making it especially luxurious. I think I have long believed this on an innate level, but it’s hard to put a lot of effort into the bedroom if the public areas of the home aren’t up to snuff. I think you’re completely right that a feeling of luxury and peacefulness in the private spaces is extremely valuable! Even if it is just a big, soft duvet.

  2. (Blushing) ~ I’m sure my media ‘prowess’ leaves a lot to be desired. And my connections have simply come from friends I’ve made in blog land, who are kind enough to remember me when they are in search of content. I’ve been very lucky :)

    Just read your interview Pauline, you sound very calm and – organised!
    Have you any advice for a sporadic tidier? Some days, my strength is the strength of ten and it’s no effort at all to re-align the chimney pots…other days it’s too far to walk across the room for a half-drunk cup of tea. Progress is erratic.

      I think my advice would be, go with your moods, and be kind to yourself when you’re just not in that frame of mind.
      I have times, also, when even putting things away (a 5 minute job) seems like a mountain to climb. On those occasions, it can be helpful to remind myself that I can spend just 2 minutes tidying and will feel much better.
      But, in general, I think you could perhaps just try to capitalize on your energetic days and know that nobody’s home looks perfect all the time. And nor should it – what’s that quote about only dull women having clean houses?? :)

  4. Great interview! You have such a knack for providing information that makes a house a home. An organized and welcoming home! I wanted you to know I sent a “stylish blogger” award your way!

  5. I will bookmark that link to read later. Congrats on the feature!

    What a great interview – great tips! We recently moved to a new house and i used to be very organized but somehow i can not find a “home” for everything in the new place and it is making me disorganized and driving me nuts. I guess i just need a little more time :) So glad i have found you.
