A sustainable home and a harmonious life

A sustainable home

Ok, what is a sustainable home? Is it when you have all the expensive furniture and when all is perfect? Could be, but not for me...

For me is a sustainable home when it last for long and when you have your own style of what you like. As a feng shui consultant I always start with items which already are available in the home and then go further into it. 

I used to start with decluttering and take things away that have bad energy for my clients. I mean not bad energy for me, because that is not the same thing. Bad energy when we're talking about interior items are not the same for me as for you. You can feel a strange feeling when you're looking at a picture and I'm not. It all depends on your background and what you have in your bagage. We don't have the same bagage, right?

In Feng Shui there are some principles to follow to get a sustainable and harmonious home and life. I have done it by myself in my own home about 20 years and the outcome is always positive. 

I have made a free guide to download including tips and trix for your home area so that you may start your Feng Shui journey as well. All common rooms are included.

Do you know that clutter can risk your health?

Let me ask you a question: Do you like cleaning your home? If not there are big chances that you have to much clutter around you which can risk your health. It could be a reason why it feels hard every time you have to clean up, because to much things and furnitures makes it hard to clean and it takes too much time.

There are of course other reason to bad health too, but this could be one of them. Perhaps you feel low and depressed and my suggestion is that you take a look around you in your environment inside of your home and see if there are something you don’t like. Do you find for example old pictures of people who doesn’t serve you anymore or things that give you bad feelings. Take them away and I promise that you will get new energy in your life. Leave the past behind you and go for new opportunities.

If you right now are depressed, feeling low and sad and have a feeling of stagnation in your life it´s a good idea to declutter your home. I want you to feel the fresh feeling of spring and new washed sheets in the bed.

Very soon I will open the registration for my new online course “The simple dream home” and I feel soo excited to share it with you. You will learn how to declutter and how you get your motivation back, the basic of Feng Shui for more harmony in your life and you will also learn how to style your home in a positive way .

PLEASE NOTE: If you want to get a notification when registration opens please follow this link and put your name on the waiting list. Seats are limited.

I’m looking forward to meet you inside.

With love, Ylva

You own nothing…

I met a man who said -You own nothing! First I didn’t understand. How could he know if I own nothing or something?

I was confused for a second until he explained what he meant. He knew I´m a Feng Shui expert and we talked about items.

I think that if we start decluttering our homes we will feel much more harmony and happiness in our lives. I know, because I started my journey of decluttering a very long time ago. It started when my mother died when I was 25 and she left so much stuff. At that time it was very hard to declutter after her, but now I can see that it helped me into feng shui and what I´m doing today.

When we are up in something it´s sometimes difficult to see the light and it was so for me too. Ok, what happened then in my life I will talk about in another blog, but I can say today that I have decluttered so much that I now feel almost free. BUT, I say BUT because decluttering don’t ever end in my life. I always think in a “decluttering” way of my home. It will always follow me. In a positive way, of course.

So, what the man meant was that we own nothing, we just borrow it from the universe and in the end it will be back to universe. I think that is a very lovely thought. Money and things means nothing. You just borrow it until the end <3

My new website

Hello again!

I have taken a very long pause from blogging, but here I am again with a fresh new energy and a new webb design.

The last 6 months I have worked behind the scenes rebuild my company in a new way and I am super excited to introduce my upcoming online business with you. There have been so many changings in my life the last years so a break and a new thinking was necessary for me. I always listen to my soul and I had to have a rest and reflect.

It has been very many decisions to take and yep, here I am again. As you can see I have change language and I decided to use english in my company. It´s both very exciting and a bit scary for me. I’t could be good to do something scarry everyday. I´m not an expert in english and therefore it´s not perfect grammatically all the time, but I don’t care. My main reason is my mission and not my grammatical English :-)

I have also decided to go back to my name Ylva Maria Design again and I’m so satisfied taken that step. This year I celebrate 6 year as entrepreneur so it’s defenitely time for celebrate. Today I celebrate my new website and thinking of a happening later on.

I hope you have a great summer time and enjoy everyday!

Love and kindness


A change gives unexpected possibilities!
