The Gift of Beauty

The four most important things in life are love, truth, freedom and beauty. Love towers above all others, but beauty stands head and shoulders with truth and freedom.

– Linda Applewhite

Why not give a truly unusual gift this holiday season that has heart and meaning? If there is someone you love who might truly appreciate a present that can not only change their life but will forever retain its value, consider giving the gift of beauty. 

I have been privileged to work with clients for the past 30 years to create beautiful spaces they love and continue to treasure through the years.  From those experiences, I’ve learned that people generally have a sense of what they like when it comes to creating rooms that enhance and nurture their lives. But they often succumb to trends or a designer’s tastes instead of honoring their own vision and preferences. 

The insights I’ve gained through listening to my clients for three decades, who I encouraged to get in touch with their own personal design preferences, are now included in my recently launched Eye for Beauty e-Course.

An Exciting Journey

People have a sense of the colors, shapes, textures and patterns they like.

This exciting journey is contained in eight discovery sessions sent to your inbox once a week. They include personal stories of the process I went through in discovering my own eye for beauty followed by the realization that my clients saw the world differently than me. I chose stories that I hope are both inspirational and instructive for you. 

Through my evolution as a designer, I came to not only honor my client’s eye for beauty, but insist their rooms authentically reflect the colors, shapes, textures and patterns they prefer. The result is the creation of timeless and unique homes that project the beauty of the individuals who live there.

Discover Who You Are

Nature is the source of all beauty.

This highly unusual course is about discovering who you are and how you respond to the world around you. It strives to awaken an exploration of colors, shapes, textures and patterns found in nature, the rooms where you live, the clothes you wear, the art on your walls and the very essence of your own one-of-a-kind self-expression. By the end of the course you should have greater confidence in your ability to create a home that not only looks good but feels good because it represents the essence of who you are. 

Many people tell me they lack the self-assurance to make design choices in their home.  So, I included in the course the process I use to get in touch with my creative intuition.  This wisdom is there waiting for you, not only to inspire your self-expression but instill trust in your beauty preferences and creative choices.

Life Enhancing Exploration

By the end of the course, you will not only find your own unique eye for beauty but will no longer be a slave to design trends that unfortunately result in many homes looking alike.  

Your perception of beauty will be trained to appreciate what is unique about your personal style instead of how it matches this month’s magazine covers. You’ll learn how to implement and trust your creative intuition, transforming your home into a place that reflects you, your family, your passions, and the things that are important in your life.

The Earth Will Thank You

It is easy to see that closely following design trends and discarding furnishings from each previous trendy period is not an earth-sustainable way to live. An added benefit of the expression of your new-found Eye for Beauty is a timeless home that won’t pollute the earth with the discarded debris from dated design trends. Instead, you will treasure your one-of-a-kind rooms for years to come for their unique and enduring beauty. And the planet will thank you for it!

A Gift for You

In the past, many people from throughout the United States and Canada attended my workshops in California and New Mexico.  But they were only available to those who could afford the airfare, hotel and meals for three days. For a fraction of the cost, this new on-line course makes the workshop content and learnings accessible to anyone who has the desire to discover their own unique eye.

For the month of December, I am offering a special price for the Eye for Beauty e-course as a gift to you, my loyal followers. For the regular price of $99, you can take the course yourself, and give it to a friend. Or give the course to two friends. How much fun would it be to have a buddy to compare notes with as you both discover your Eye for Beauty?

Through my lifelong journey with beauty, I learned that if I could see beauty in the outside world, then I must have it inside me. My hope is that you too will discover the beauty inside you through exploring the extraordinary beauty around you. 

Beauty is truly a gift that keeps on giving!

In the love of beauty,

Toby and Linda Applewhite
