Yellow For Manifesting | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

September comes and I feel the end of the year is already here. With schools reopened, I am sure many feel the same way, thrown back in a hectic routing of preparing kids’ lunch, homework, taking them back and forth to game practices and school events. I don’t have kids, thus I am out of this kind of routine. I have clients who push to finish their work before the holiday start and that happens very soon with Halloween.

September reminds us that nature will go on hibernation soon, leaves will turn yellow and will fall to the ground lifeless. That’s the dark side of yellow, but we are not going to look at that for the moment.
September is the month to manifest new ideas and new things we want to happen in the new year, in business or personal life.

Yellow is the color to focus on for manifesting. The sun wakes us up every day, fills our rooms with a bright light and illuminates most of our day. The sun acts like a battery charger and so does yellow. As long as we manifest our wants, needs and desire imagining a yellow light going through our body, surrounding ourselves with yellow flowers or objects, wearing yellow/gold clothes and eating yellow food, we will vibrate as if the sun is going through our body.  It will take a few days, but we will see a clear picture in front of us and we will take actions to make things happening the way we want.

 

Then we will go to green, the heart chakra, because we will feel at peace that what we have manifested is taking shape with our actions.
Luckily, most of my walls are yellow, from dark to light and golden, I get naturally energized. However even I need a bit more yellow when manifesting. This week, I have worn ochre, sun yellow, light Chartreuse and golden, mixed with blues, brown, greys, bronze and white.

Yellow food has a large part in manifesting, it instills positivity. For me it is not difficult to do, I love food and I love to cook. This week, I picked up some yellow mini peppers and stuffed them open face or whole with various ingredients and then baked them. These are some of the ingredients I use often for a fun variety of the same recipe:
1. canned tuna, olives, capers, cherry tomatoes, bread crumbs, olive oil, salt & pepper.
2. ground meat, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, spices, beaten egg, olive oil, salt & pepper.
3. rice, cherry tomatoes, any cheese you like, beaten eggs, olive oil, salt & pepper.
The list could on forever.

Mini peppers stuffed open face with saffron rice, spinach, beaten eggs, breadcrumbs, spices, olive oil, salt & pepper.


This is a salad of briefly boiled yellow beet with pomegranate, basil leaves, olive oil, salt & pepper. There is no better way to get energized with yellow food, but the healthy way.

Manifesting something you want to happen in your life happens in the center of the body, exactly in the stomach, where the gold chakra is located. You first think something in your mind, then it gets reworked or felt in the stomach, the gold is activated with your actions and the result will come. Ciao,
Valentina

Yellow In The Kitchen | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

A week ago, on the news, I heard some statistics on colors for homes. It was said that yellow kitchens don’t sell and blue bathrooms do, but missed to explain which blue will sell: dark blue, sky blue, aquamarine, periwinkle, turquoise, French blue, cobalt, indigo….I like to know who makes up these statics.
(Click on each photo to view it larger).

I never knew people buy homes solely based on colors leaving behind all other important features. For what I know, houses sell based on a good location, highly reputed schools and parks, vicinity to stores, convenience to reach main freeways and highways, house modern amenities, natural light infusing the home, a beautiful view, designed details, solid architecture, well maintained backyard and above all, an excellent sale price.
People will buy a home when they are ready to make that investment and will buy anything that suit them, even a fixer upper.

I bought my home with a pea green linoleum kitchen floor, a brand new medium gray carpet all over the house and an uncultivated backyard burned by the sun.  I hated all of it, the floors and the backyard, but I saw the potential of my feature home. It had all the features I mentioned above, do you think I was going to pass up a good opportunity just because I didn’t like the color of the floors? No way!!! In fact, both linoleum and carpet were the first to go and little by little I designed a small paradise in my backyard. Now, I have a stone interior floor made with ashlar pattern, the same used in old European villas.

 

It goes with the golden-yellow walls of my kitchen and one special wall in the dining area colored in burgundy wine, which sometimes turns aubergine in a different times of the day as the sun turns.

 

I want to remind the people who made up that statistic, that yellow is an inviting color, it’s the color of the sun. We get in the sun because it energizes our batteries, makes us feel positive and healthy.

Yellow is the color of many food, the first one that come to mind is yellow grape, which gives us delicious white wines and all the bubbles we all like so much.

Yellow is the color of cantaloupe, squash, apple, pineapple, pepper, banana, lemon, potato, honey, corn, cheese, egg yolk, orange juice, starfruit, chanterelle mushrooms, mango, polenta, turmeric, tomato, beets, peaches, do you want more?
Eat these yellow foods to feel strong, energized and happy. Why wouldn’t anyone want yellow kitchen walls?
Yellow is especially an appropriate color in gray, cold climate. In those areas, getting up and make coffee in a yellow kitchen is a blessing. It helps starting the day in a positive way.

Perhaps those people in the news should look closer at the colors they wear…..

Don’t be afraid of colors, get outside your comfort zone and experience new colors, they can only bring you a renovated energy. Ciao,
Valentina
