Do you have indoor cats or dogs? Well if you do then you have some unique problems that only pet owners can understand. I have had indoor cats and have envisioned building them something special so that they can climb and exercise and still maintain a level of fitness that they would if they were outdoors too. My cats have stayed indoors more as they aged. A special ceiling design for cats was actually in the movie, The Princess Diaries, Directed by Gary Marshall that came out in 2001. I ran into this little story of an elderly couple who custom built walkways in their home at ceiling length. A fabulous idea if you have the time and talent to build something like that. Something like this can always be done by someone handy. Take a look at this: http://www.shine.yahoo.com/animal-nation/cats-house-couple-redesigns-home-cats-mind.202300439.html .

Everything we do and surround ourselves has an effect on us. Whether it is people, or substances, sometimes it is good to rethink our habits and replace them with healthier habits. I too have to take this advice. Today there is more and more talk about toxicity in the items we use. Many resources today such as TV, magazines, and blogs, speak to this. What we clean with can have lasting consequences on our health. The reason I am waking up to this knowledge is I wondered if somehow I contributed to my cat’s cancer. I recalled using Lysol and beach a lot to clean up after her. She stayed primarily in my room the last year of her life. I looked online to find that Lysol was very toxic to animals. Well yea, they are closest to the ground and their paws directly touch the surfaces we clean with these cleaners.

Modern design in furniture was made possible through the Industrial Revolution when new technology became available. Built primarily for function, modern furniture is comprised of plastic (pvc), glass, stainless steel, metal, and chrome. Some of the natural materials are wood, leather, teak, and linen. The colors used in modern design are neutrals, black, white, accentuated by bold statement colors such as blue, red, and yellows. The walls are often white. Embedded within the design is the use of geometric shapes, circles, ovals, squares, rectangles, smooth even curves.

Is your environment neat and tidy with everything in it’s place? Or is there a little clutter here, a little there. In my opinion, our minds need organization and neatness in order for us to function at full capacity. Just like our thoughts need to be purged and categorized into their proper place so do our things.
