Where Dreams are a Reality

So where are we ? Back at the start of the rainbow, where dreams are made. As adults we just don’t allow ourselves to have enough fun. We are always trying to get things done and beat time. When there is no such thing as time.

Alice had a great fall down the rabbit hole and when she reached the bottom of the hole, she found herself in Wonderland. As children we loved to explore our deepest desires and fantasies. Why leave it all to the left brain creative thinkers ? As a right brain thinking child, you still had fun and are still now creative at heart. It’s so important to have FUN. Why let it stop when you turn a certain age. Fun isn’t just for kids it’s for everyone. Today I want to touch on the young child within you ALL and take you to Wonderland, where adult dreams come true.

Wallpaper is a great way to explore your creative niche and is easily removable. I just love staircases decorated in wallpaper. For the purpose of Alice,  I have purposely chosen these images but there are amazing art inspired wallpapers to line your staircases with, that will make your home look like a gallery of your inner childhood desires. Another place to begin is your walk in robe where your day begins, to start  your mind set for the day with more fun. To remind yourself that life isn’t all so serous. I love the english inspired love seat that was once used to separate the females from their suitors to respectfully talk in public without getting too close. Another reminder of how far Australia has come from our reserved English settlers. The bright velvet pink chair balances well with the rug highlighted in pink flowers. Colour needs balance and must be used more than once in a room to harmonise in a space. The lined mirrored cabinets make the space feel larger while still practical.

Don’t be scared, just try something new and don’t think twice about it. Reach out and branch out, to something a little more you, a little more fun, a little less reserved.
