Life is so busy, I find myself constantly over stimulated with work, family and trying to make time for friends.
Then squeezing in some time for me… Which always comes last. And I know it shouldn’t, but I that’s how my brain works.
This week I’ve felt the city somewhat suffocating me. All I want to do is drive away…back the Skye.. Glencoe or Plockton where you can feel alone with yourself.
Sitting in front of a crackling fire watching the wild weather change in a second before your eyes.
Or even being at one with it… Feeling the sharp icy wind on my face and breathing in the sea air searching rockpools for creatures and mometos.
Moments that now sit all over our wee house to remind me of where I long to be. Bursts of memories that make me so happy and sad at the same time.
It’s only been in this longing that I’ve realised how important ‘nature in design’ really is. Perhaps in a subconscious we a have that need to return to nature like I have. It’s relaxing, calming & reassuring. Not like cities… Concrete jungles. Not that I’m biast in anyway.
Interiors are away to connect us to nature again. But nothing will ever compare to the real thing. Take time for yourself!
