Feng Shui Workshop with Stacy Davenport

Do you feel like your life, home or place of work is a little off-balance? You're in luck because we've invited Stacy Davenport, a Certified Feng Shui Expert and Life Coach, to host a Feng Shui workshop at our shop on August 17th from 5-7 p.m.! The workshop is $40. Email to reserve your space. 

Learn a little more about Stacy and what she has in store for us!

Give us a little background on who you are?
I'm a fun, dynamic and insightful certified Feng Shui expert who loves teaching others how to shift and recalibrate their lives. I've touched thousands, from France to Brazil, and throughout the United States. I've spend over 18 years supporting individuals and business leaders, using the science of Feng Shui and Consciousness Coaching, to enhance personal transformation and shift toward excellence. 

What is Feng Shui?
Feng Shui is the ancient science of working with and balancing the five elements in order to bring harmony and abundance in space -- home and/or office.

What's your history with this practice?
I studied with Master Lin Yun in Berkeley, California. My services include consultations for homes and businesses, and I teach workshops where I combine Feng Shui with Life Coaching. 
I am always excited to work on a space that I can bring into alignment, so it can support the occupants of the home and the owner and employees of a business. Once of my favorite regular clients is Milk + Honey. I recalibrate the energy of each location monthly. I also love working on new construction where we set crystals in the concrete and write intentions on the walls/studs prior to the sheetrock being installed. 

What will people learn and walk away with during the workshop?
Everyone will learn the following:
  • Personal Ming Kua and Element
  • Understand the 9 section Bagua Layout (above) and how to apply it over their home
  • Learn ways to activate the energy in each of the 9 sections
Thank you, Stacy! Interested in the workshop? Bring the floor plan of your house and your questions!

This Is How It's Done: Bend Lucy Chair

You guys, I can't tell you how cool it is to see how our customers are using the goodies they've found at Nannie Inez.  Last night a good friend of ours, Lesley of Smart Mouth Social Media invited us over for a bit of hang time and a few cocktails and it was an absolute delight to see NI bits sprinkled throughout their place.  My favorite moment was the Orange Planter, Lucy Chair and the Pols Potten Basket that we carried when we first opened.  Seeing it last night made me remember how much I love that piece and you can believe it will be back in the shop soon.  Have something from Nannie Inez and want to share your styling, tag us on Instagram!  It would make our eyeballs so happy. 

New Finell Slant Box

Loving vibrant pink... who me??  No shocker here, I guess but the new news would be the arrival of Slant Box with neon pink acrylic lid by Finell.  Constructed at an angle, the box has a sliding acrylic lid making it the perfect container for your bits and bobs.  I will definitely be using mine for storing away some of my everyday jewelry pieces.

Facets and Folds: The New Modern

Living Etc has always been a source of inspiration for us at Nannie Inez.  I don't know about you guys but I'm starting to feel a little sensory overload with pinterest.  Nothing seems to jump from the screen and I usually see the same things over and over again.  I think there is a shift happening, a return to print and original content.  But I digress, this post is actually about the interesting feature I recently read in Living Etc, July issue about "A New Angle:  folds, ripples, facets and pleats--playing with texture and form creates striking modern design".  We totally agree.  Let's talk about some of our favorite folds and facets in the shop.  

 We love all things plant related at Nannie Inez and the plant stands are the perfect accessory for the hexagon brass pots

Keep your paper organized in Hay's Plisse Notebook.  Think of it as a modern accordion style filing system. 

Have you seen the new Misfold origami piece by Finell?  When it's not hanging and looking fabulous, it easily collapses into a small little orgami accordion for easy storage.  But honestly, why not just keep this stunner out for everyday enjoyment.  

It wouldn't feel right not to mention our foundation for folds and facets.  The origami sculptural piece that resides in our shop is a piece that makes me smile every single day.  Come see for yourself.

This Is How It's Done: Kaleido Trays & Plisse Notebook

This weekend I stumbled upon this gorgeous interior belonging to Shareen Joel, a Melbourne based architect and interior designer.  There is a lot to love about this space but my immediate attention was drawn to the Kaleido Trays and Plisse Notebook.  The dining room is perfect, it's modern but not cold and overly minimalist.  There is a nod to vintage but nothing about this space is trying to be 'mid century modern'.  I love the leather paired with the bright white cabinets.  Do you notice the pops of neutral tying back to the chairs without being too matchy matchy?  I see it in the leather, the cutting board, the bird, the bowl and of course, the always awesome Kaleido Tray.  By the way, don't you just love a splash of inky black?  

 The plisse notebook is actually a very functional piece.  Think of it as an update on the accordion style filing system.  When it's not being put to good use, it's almost a crime to store it away.  I love how the plisse notebook sits proud in this bedroom, almost like a peacock.  This space is perfect, very minimalist but the wood stool and floors add the right natural, warm elements.  The color palette is simple and allows the pop of yellow to really stand out.  

And with an ending note, this is how it's done!, thank you for being a collector of beautiful images.
