I don’t know where to start when it comes to designing my home! There is just so much STUFF!!!
From the windows, floor, to furniture, it’s hard to even organize let alone keep track of all the moving parts of doing a redesign without my head spinning and I’m ready to give up!
Where do I even start?!?!
We hear these all the time, from those who have little experience designing their spaces to those who are more experienced but the past year of spending so much time indoors in their spaces has them in overwhelm!
From home offices to inviting sitting rooms, think of your space as an empty canvas, and each new element you add, is a stroke to that canvas that will eventually complete a beautiful harmonious picture and even more memorable spaces.
Just as the clothes on your back and in your closet reflect who you are, your personality and tastes, so should your home. We believe your home is a reflection of your style, regardless of where you live or your budget. And, one of the stumbling blocks that often trips you up is that design ideas are everywhere.
You may think...well sure, "I need help, I don't even know where to start! But I don't want to spend thousands on designer fees..."
We know, we get it…
That’s why Founder and Lead Designer Sophia Clark of Galiatea, Inc. created the "Design Matters: Living With Style & Shui," Workshop that starts on Wednesday February 4, 2021!
“We recommend breaking design down into easy manageable steps, we call it "The 8 Layers of Interior Decorating." offers Sophia Clark. "We eliminate the guesswork and the headache with our foolproof method 'The 8 Layers of Interior Decorating'....you will be a decorator for your own home in no time!"
Clark believes good design helps you live and feel better. And this starts by fully understanding your vision and helping you make the right home-furnishing decisions to balance your space, lifestyle, taste and budget. Following is what will be covered in the workshop, focusing on giving you the tools and also teaching you how to confidently make creative choices for your space.
The workshop kicks off with establishing where you are starting from and determining your why for decorating decisions; followed by setting your vision and discovering your style; and then reviewing how to bring good energy into a space. The following weeks deep dive into the 8 layers of decorating. And there are so many tools and resources that will be made available throughout the workshop. This is a definite "must attend" for those who know very little or who are experienced decorators. There's something of value for everyone!

Design Matters: Living With Style & Shui Workshop has the potential to save you time and money when redecorating your home. Think about that for a moment.
How much would you expect to pay right now to obtain advice and guidance from a professional interior designer when decorating your home? To take away the headache of the process? And the risk of getting it wrong or not loving the outcome when you are done with the design process?
Thousands of dollars?
Think about all the costly mistakes that can rack up dollar after dollar without the aid of both a Feng Shui consultant and an Interior Designer working together! Imagine the endless repeated potential savings WHENEVER you decorate.
Remember, Design Matters: Living With Style & Shui Workshop is a one-time investment that you can put to work for you again and again, every time you decorate or move into a new home – for the rest of your life.
Think about it! Every great change or transformation you’ve experienced always began with a decision. Have you ever considered that one of the biggest reasons you are struggling with the problems you face is because you have been unwilling to make a decision and back that decision with committed action?!
if your home currently isn’t the space you desire, or just doesn’t feel right, then your options are simple:
You can choose to do nothing... and then of course nothing changes. The problem just becomes worse. You can choose to avoid the problem all together and hope that it will magically go away (it won’t).
Or you choose to be 100% committed to doing something about it! If this is your choice, then now is your time to get signed up and get started! Enrollment for the "Design Matters: Living With Style & Shui" Workshop takes just a few minutes. Go here to get access!
