CONSIDERED THOUGHTS

 

CONSIDERED LIVING ETHOS

As Christmas is just around the corner we’ve turned to thinking about our considered living ethos , slowing it down and reviewing our core values – which is easy to forget at this busy all-consuming time of year. From boozing, eating, purchasing we’ve turned to remembering our thoughts around zen philosophies & less excess – simplifying for a simpler, softer, respected life.

Inspired by the Japanese concept of  ‘MA’

‘ MA in essence is what makes minimalism possible. MA is in the purposeful pauses in speech which make words stand out. It is in the quiet time we all need to make our busy lives meaningful, and in the silence between the notes which make the music. Where there is clutter, even valuable things lose their value. Where there is too much, nothing stands out.’

 -  lessening the excess allows us to value and love what is around us.

Quality in purchasing is key, pieces have so much more value when they are as reflected and aligned as our values. 

Our ethos - Considered living 

- Reclaiming space and thought about what we value most- cultivation in design, sustainability and wellness for mind and body. The ethos is based on the foundation of each individuals’ deepest values, living lightly, with intention and balance.

-Considered living is about bringing in elements to evoke happiness and wellbeing for yourself, others and the planet.

-Embodying a lifestyle of connection, thoughtfulness and understanding that our environments, purchases and impulses impact on our habitual lifestyles.

-Quality in purchasing is key, pieces have so much more value when they are as reflected and aligned as our values.  –

-We believe this is still integral when purchasing at Christmas – selecting treasures for individuals not just pieces for Christmas and always. 

-A relationship with design and lifestyle through simplifying, functionality, thoughtful curated space and objects creates holistic calm and comfort.
