I was looking for somewhere to rest my soul, a place where no demands would be made of it. Just a place to refresh, regroup and start again. And here is where, after some searching, I felt I'd found it."Nothing can cure the soul but the senses, just as nothing can cure the sense but the soul" Oscar Wilde

I felt the muscles in my face stretch as I smiled. I felt energy flow through me once again, making me realize how congested and stagnant it had previously been.
With a fresh(er) mind, I began to wonder about this room and what struck me was this: How does a space that appears to be full of stuff still breathe harmony and exude a sense of freedom and comfort?
In this case at least, I think it's got to do with the light and gently bright colors that are repeated in every part and every purpose of the room. It's enchanting in a very different kind of way that I usually experience 'enchanting'.
I love the fact that you can be hidden without being in the dark as you work in that spot under the bed. There's privacy without its typical 'cloak of darkness'. That feels playfully nice.
I think it's a room designed for a teenager but I could easily make myself comfortable and efficient in it. For a while. After that, having got its rest through a combination of harmonious space and creative work, my soul's mood might rise into a space for higher thinking. A space like this perhaps?
