Moving from Our Home to My Home @DivorceSourceRadio.com

Deirdre Dyment is an interior designer who believes in designing an overall experience at home that leaves you spiritually energized and equipped to live your life passionately.  Deirdre knows all too well, there’s much more involved in leaving the matrimonial home than packing a suitcase and signing a lease. When she separated from her husband in 2007, she, unusually, helped him get set up in his new place, from stripping the floors and painting the walls to measuring and ordering furniture. They also got their two kids involved in creating their bedrooms.

The experience has since motivated Dyment to launch a novel service – post-divorce decorating – that assists in feathering the nests of newly single men in particular, whether it’s coordinating their renovations or sourcing and installing art to enliven their empty walls.

Topics in this program include:

• What are the different things can be done to make transition easier and less disruptive for children
• The emotional strain of leaving the family home; where to live, how much to spend and do you rent or purchase
• Creating an environment that will inspire and get the individual that has moved excited about the next chapter of their life
• Creating a space that reflects your personality and happiness

India

One thing I will never forget from my trip to India in October 2010 was the intensity and vibrancy of colour!!  The Indians surround themselves with colour: their clothes, their trucks even their towns.  I wonder what came first?  Does colour makes them happy or happiness makes them colourful??

Now go put on something colourful, or paint a room pink…see how it changes your mood.

Wall Colours

When it comes to choosing a wall colour, it’s not only important to consider if the colour suits the room BUT you as well.  We tend to pick cooler colours for smaller rooms because they trick the eye into thinking the room is bigger even though sometimes it’s worth sacrificing the “rules” to consider the client’s personality.  Maybe a deep dark grey or a vibrant orange is just what you need to feel like it’s your home.

Hey, if you are brave enough to consider a bright orange maybe we should show you some wallpaper samples too!!  I love wallpaper!!
