Thank you Jet Magazine for publishing my advice (January 23rd) on transforming your living room into an ideal retreat. It’s such a honor to have my work included in a magazine I grew up reading. There was always a Jet in our magazine rack!

When Senior Editor, Kyra Kyles called to chat about low-cost ways to add serenity to your living spaces, I gave her these words of advice:

GLOW: Use lamps instead of overhead lights to create a gentle, rather than glaring, effect. You’re establishing an atmosphere of relaxation and coziness.

THROW: Colorful cashmere fabrics – available for as little as $25— add style and flair, plus something soft to cuddle up to in winter months.

EDIT:  Take a look around, and remove furniture, such as an extra end table, that doesn’t add value. Cluttered rooms = cluttered thoughts.

Want more ideas like these? Pick up the latest issue of Jet Magazine on newstands now! I’m on page 35!
As a supplement to the piece, I’ve included these product recommendations/ideas to help you in your quest for relaxation. Check ’em out:
