So, something you may have noticed is that I’m a double blogger.

It just happened. I didn’t plan it that way.

It started out with a personal blog, Happy Impermanence. I wanted to chronicle the events of 2011 onward…the coming to a decision to shift out of my teaching career into interior design, the endless planning of moving from Korea to our next destination, the ping-ponging of emotions throughout the process.

In addition to documentation, it’s a place for inspiration and reflection.

Somebody’s Home, however, is a result of my love for interior design and my transition into the profession. It caters to the international inhabitant, the global/eclectic style aficionado, the mindful home dweller.

These two blogs are undeniably linked, mostly because they house me & my dreams.

The Laos Dream is one.

In October 2012, my husband and I are moving to Laos to begin new careers in the things we are most passionate about: design, yoga, coaching, and writing. We will wear many hats to get started and certainly go to the drawing board often. What the final outcome will be is a surprise.

Concept boards have a function in interior design. They bring forth ideas in color and style and arrangement, helping us visualize a space. Inspiration boards are closely related. These hold images that inspire something in us, be it motivation, hope, or beauty.

Today I’m sharing my inspiration board for Laos. Whenever I look at it, I feel a peaceful creativity.

I’m curious, what does it conjure up for you?

    Hey Christine! Seems we are in sync :) Double blogging and moving around… We are moving back to Berlin by the end of September! This Fall should be very exciting for us both then!

    Your concept board conveys a perfect balance of excitement and relaxation to me. The colours are so lively and the scenes are captivating. All the while peace radiates from it. Feels like a good concept to me! Big hugs and best wishes Xx.

      We do have many little parallels, don’t we? Don’t forget, there’s the Canadian factor as well. Wishing you well in your move. Can’t wait to hear more. If I’m ever in Berlin, a meet-up is in order.

    I agree with Holly. I see excitement but also a peaceful mind and soul and lots of self-nurture and healing! It’s getting closer x
