Down The Road of 2020 | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

I cannot hide the fact that 2020 has been an “Annus Horribilis” for everyone, however, I can still say that something good came out of this year. It seems that unpleasant and good situations will always balance each other, it’s the law of nature, after the rain comes the sun. Traveling through life in this year 2020 has generated new friends, new contacts, new dreams, new collaborations, new plans, and the publication in November of my new book: “Design Nature For A Colorful Home”.
My TV shows stopped for the entire year, but the lockdown didn’t stop me or anyone else. I transferred some shows online to tell anecdotes, curiosities, and share experiences.
I started with the series “Stories Of A Home” and how our habitat started, including everything in it, chairs, stairs, bathrooms, and details that make our homes today.

Stories Of The Home – Talk Show Series

I continued with a new TV Series “Inspiration From…” A few people in different trades appeared on the show and shared their expertise. A chef, a ballerina, an author, a musician, a fashion lover, and more. They all had something in common one thing: Passion and it was a delight to listen to them.

Online TV interviews followed with an interview on “OrgOlio”, a show in Italy which deals with the production and benefits of olive oil. My talk delved into the color vibrations of yellow, especially for kitchens, and the use of olive oil in American cuisine. The author Cosimo Damiano Guarini, an agronomist, included my interview in his book in Italian “Il Pelo Nell’Olio” (A fur in the oil) released in September 2020. That was totally unexpected.

I was invited to talk on Elsie Kerns’s show about “Fall Challenge”. The talk enlightened the viewers on the reason some people have a seasonal disorder, like the Autumn depression, and how to overcome it by using colors and lights. Elsie Kerns is a wellness coach and an energy intuitive combining her expertise in Eden Energy Medicine, Brennan Healing Science, and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction.

The second time I was on her show, “The Divine Feminine Gathering” I talked about the meaning and importance of Christmas lights more than the Christmas decorations.

The Rotary Club in Cupertino, California, invited me to talk to their members.
My subject was “The Arts Of Puglia” focusing on the Trulli Houses, the iconic cone-shaped homes of that area, an original architectural style, today patrimony of the UNESCO.

Electric Press – Colors and Emotions by Valentina Cirasola

In January and February, I produced two TV shows in the studio, before lockdown.
One of the guests Aeriol Ascher, a holistic healer, talked about sound vibrations, positive thinking, and boosting confidence with vocalization.

At last, in November I published a new book “Design Nature For A Colorful Home” available in paperback and Kindle versions, on Amazon and Barnes&Noble.

It has been a busy year in lockdown, but I am grateful to all the new friends I made online and the people who contributed to the continuation of my design expressions. Let’s kick this Annus Horribilis to the curb and start a new year with new hopes and expectations. I want to wish all of you a splendid 2021 all the way through. Ciao.
