#11 in my Tonics for Your Creative Spirit email series: Naomi Cleaver


It’s time for another hit of creative wisdom and this week’s quote comes from one of my interior design heroes; the beautiful and inspiring Naomi Cleaver.

 Naomi cleaver creativity quotes

This quote is taken from Naomi’s gorgeous book;

The home is a subject very close to my heart and I love Naomi’s philosophy that our homes need to reflect our personality and match our current lifestyle. (I can vouch that expensive/light-coloured decor is not the most stress-free option during the weaning phase…)

The Joy of Home explores the many challenges and opportunities involved in creating a home that both supports and inspires us. Naomi also has some refreshing insights into the nature of design and the creative process. 

So, I highly recommend this fabulous book. It’s beautifully laid out and an absolute joy to read. And the featured interiors are as stylish as you’d expect from a designer of Naomi’s calibre. But they also look relaxed, practical and welcoming – as a home should be. 

As Naomi says; 

twitter aqua“To design a home is to design happiness, 

to create for ourselves a little piece of joy.”


Till next week!
