Domestic Downsizing - 0422 520 354


I have heard back from a few of my readers that although my newsletter was titled: Innovative Interiors 'the use of colour' - all you received was a white page. Not a very innovative use of colour at all really! So my apologies to those of you who may receive this twice but then again, you may just pick up another handy tip the second time around!

I do have a lot of fun writing the Innovative Organising Ideas newsletter each month. I love to share tips and articles that may help my readers become clutter free and organised and I love the responses you give me about what is working for you in the home.

If you would like to keep updated more regularly than just once a month, why not subscribe to my blog Organise Me I post at least twice a week with articles ranging from lifestyle: "Letting go of the burden of stress" to organising tips: "Getting organised the Harry Potter way", interior design: "How to create the perfect nursery" and even a snapshot of my life: "A day in the life of a professional organiser".

I look forward to connecting with you in cyberspace!

Here's to harmony in your home!

Timely Trivia

The US Department of Energy reports that a quarter of people with two car garages have so much stuff in there that they can't even fit in one car. Why leave your 2nd biggest asset out on the street while all your junk gets royal treatment in the garage?

Ingenious Organising Idea

"I loved your idea of donating unread novels to charity and instead photographing the titles and author in the bookshelf, so when the time comes to read the book, you just get it from the library. Pre-ordering the book on-line from the library saves time too!"

Thanks to Helen Boreham from Indooroopilly QLD for sharing her tip.

Innovative Interiors - The Use Of Colour

Did you know that most people spend more than 2/3 of their time indoors at home and work? Make the most of it with some colour ideas for different areas of the home:

  • Office or study: mid to dark blues are soothing and encourage clear thought and concentration. Accent with yellow for clear logical thinking or pink for stress reduction.

  • Dining room: orange stimulates digestion, metabolism, detoxification and appetite (peach and apricot encourage conversation and idea sharing too!)

  • Bedroom: pinks and plums are soft and romantic, peach and apricot are emotionally supportive mulberry, salon or rose pink offer warmth and affection and are restful

  • Nursery: pastel pinks, blue, yellows, greens or lilacs soother and comfort (no strong colours)

  • Kitchen: earthy colours such as nut browns, golden yellows, or peach and read are associated with delicious food while green reminds us of nature.

  • Living room: the sky is the limit: use colours that reflect the personality so of those in the home

  • Bathroom: warm peaches and pinks help us feel comfortable with our bodies and with terracotta and gold uplift our spirits and energy. On the other hand turquoise and dark blue refreshes, soothes and relaxes.

In Feng Shui, the colours to use for wealth and prosperity are purples, reds and greens.

Thanks to Gina Lofaro from The Word Mistress for this topic - Gina was one of our lucky winners in last month's birthday competition.
