    Following your heart has been high on my priority list the last few days.  I’m so excited to know we’re about to make big changes to our lives that’s truly taking steps toward following our dreams.  It’s not always easy to stay true to yourself and what you really want, since responsibilities, commitments  and the security of the “known” is a strong gravitational pull.  I appreciate all of you who commented here and Facebook more than you know – so inspiring! I’d LOVE to hear more about what you are doing. As soon as more things get sorted out I’ll share more of our details.

    So posting my Swedish friend fashion stylist and journalist Jennifer Jansch charming soul filled house in Sweden fits right in.  I’ve been waiting to put this on the blog, but had to wait for it to come out in Lonny this past weekend!  (You saw their amazing Stockholm apartment on the blog here and at met her at a shoot here.) She moved with her family to NYC to pursue their dream of living in Manhattan. But summers are spent at heir dreamy Swedish summer house.

    Can’t wait to visit!

    How cozy are those beds?

    Nothing beats Swedish summers. Really nothing.

    Pippi Longstocking inspired generations of Swedish women to live free spirited lives in charming old wood houses, where fun and imagination is part of the daily deal. It’s been etched in to our souls!

    Love the closet!

    Are any of you business owners?

    Running your own business is full of daily challenges. While it’s a lot of fun, there are days you feel overwhelmed, exhausted, unsure of direction, alone in decision making, worried, uninspired and  everything feels like one big bad chore! Those days it’s great to have a Manifesto. Why are you doing the things you do? What inspires you? What do you hope to do with your business? What do you believe in? What’s your driving force?  My main driving force is my desire to help people. Help people live better and fuller lives.

    Lily, my great new assistant and graphic designer created an updated version of the LiveLikeYou Manifesto which will go on the site this week. We needed it to have a design style suited the spunky LiveLikeYou design & life view!

    No matter how I look at it. I know one thing for sure. Life is simply too short not to show up, in every way you can…

    I’m convinced that a big change in your life can kick start with the right coat of paint, or a daring new design twist in your space. I see it happen to people I help with redesign all day long.  It can make all the difference. (I going to start to share some stories.) We spend countless hours in our homes, and our surroundings affect us way more than we realize. On those days when you are feeling low…don’t you want to look around and be reminded of who you are, or cheered up or comforted by a great space that reminds you that you are actually really cool?

    As long as you commit, follow your heart, and allow yourself to be you, you are on the right track.

    Anyway it’s Monday a busy week lays ahead.  Commit to being you in every way you can!
