When you fuse art, science, and energy in your design, magic happens. And trust me, it’s simpler than waiting for the stars to align!
The perfect piece of art doesn’t just beautify a room—it anchors it, delighting the eye, dictating the color theme, and setting the room’s energy. Changing the art can change the energy of your room. Let art breathe life into your home.
While ‘energy’ might sound intangible, you’ll recognize its presence the moment you step into a room. Everything in your space, tangible and intangible, is woven from this energy. And don’t we all want our rooms to not just look, but also feel spectacular?
I am also an energy artist, and my designs include custom energy art and home decor that ties your design together, creating beauty, harmonizing your colors and reminding you what is important to you. I create art specifically to support you.
Your perfect space is key to your well-being.
Imagine a space that looks great, feels great, and supports you to be great.
Your selection of art determines the energy you want to surround yourself with.

How the Room Designer Affects the Energy of the Room
I created this Living Room Edesign to showcase the versatility of purple in Global Style designs. This is part of a series exploring how different Global Styles can be achieved using various colors. Global styles like Indian, Turkish, Mexican, Moroccan, Greek, and Bohemian are known for their vibrant hues, eco-friendliness, cultural treasures, and close ties to nature, making them perfect for gatherings.
This particular design represents a modern take on Global Style, offering a sleek, contemporary twist on Bohemian aesthetics. You can delve deeper into the world of global styles by exploring my other blog articles featuring purple, blue, green, red, and black-and-white palettes.
Purple, residing between red and blue on the color wheel, embodies qualities of both neighbors. Like blue, it exudes calm and relaxation, reminiscent of wildflowers found in nature. At the same time, it can ignite passion and energy akin to red. Darker shades often evoke a sense of wisdom.
Purple carries rich symbolism, from status and royalty to spirituality and creativity. Its versatility allows it to resonate with a broad audience, making it a complex and intriguing color.
I’ve designed this space, setting the stage for art to infuse its unique energy. As each artist contributes their perspective through their work, we’ll witness how the room’s energy evolves and transforms
How the Artist Affects the Energy of the Room
I selected art from two of my favorite artists, Brooke Harker and Joan Marie of Joan Marie Art, and picked a piece from their websites that I thought worked with the colors and scale of my design. I also designed some of my own fractal art to go in the room.
Let’s see how the art changes the feeling of the room for you, the viewer, and how it relates to the energy and meaning the artist was inspired by when they created it.
Feeling the energy of visual images is the
language of the subconscious mind.

"Buzz and Flow" by Brooke Harker
The painting “Buzz and Flow” by Brooke Harker, is a 66 x 45 ink, oil & acrylic on canvas. Brooke painted this image of Hong Kong.
I am a historian of the ordinary.” Brooke Harker.
Brooke says, “This is one of my favorite paintings I ever created. I selected the magenta color as it reminded me of the energy of a friend who celebrated life vividly. I put elements in the piece that fascinated me such as a single woman walking in stride or a taxi”.
When I am creating the painting I am in them and they seem larger than life. They always feel so small comparatively when they are done and on a canvas.
I selected this piece for the room because of the high energy and the color, not knowing the meaning behind it from Brooke’s perspective,
As soon as I put it in this room, I felt it added a sense of vibrant, high energy that you might feel on the streets of a large bustling city where all the people brought the energy of their lives as they walked by.
Yet, the purple walls seemed to contain it with a sense of calmness. As if life can seem chaotic and wild all around us, but if we just step back, it is all small stuff in the big picture of things.
I asked Brooke how she felt about the energy of her painting in this room. She said it evoked a sense of curiosity.

"OoGenesis" by Joan Marie Art
I love the colors in this painting and selected it for the room because the colors worked with purple and it seemed so vibrant and joyful.
In my previous career, I was a wildlife biologist, and it reminded me of a super colorful version of a cell getting ready to divide and create new life. It felt like joyful colorful energy about to explode with possibilities. It just glows with joyous energy on the wall.
When I asked Joan about the story behind the painting, she said it is “the birth of a new world, the uniting of colors, all holding hands in unity.”
“Oogenesis”, was named by Joan Marie’s husband after she told him the meaning behind the painting.
I asked Joan how she felt about the energy of her painting in this room. She said ” it takes me to a peaceful mystical world of well-being and magical possibilities. Just beautiful!”
It takes me to a peaceful mystical world of well-being and magical possibilities. Just beautiful!”. Joan Marie Art.

"A Passion for Purple" by Mary Ann Benoit
I created a set of three fractal art pieces specifically for this room, which I call “A Passion for Purple”.
Fractal art is digital art I create on my computer. I love the spiral and curved shapes, fine textures, and vibrant colors. Creating fractal art is like traveling through a kaleidoscope that has no beginning or end. When traveling, you find a place you want to stop and stay awhile. The art I create is that place.
I wanted my art to reflect the complexity of purple so that it was calm, yet vibrant, mysterious, spiritual, and elegant at the same time.
I love the way the dark rich purple colors really ground the room, yet the light purple glows with serene energy. It feels very calming, yet vibrant and mysterious as well, as if it has the secret to some ancient wisdom.
