    To Meditate // Goddess Wisdom
    As individuals, we often wear many hats throughout the day - businessperson, friend, spouse, lover, juggling a variety of commitments. We have to hustle, chase, and insert ourselves in many cases to be seen and heard, in order to get ahead. This charging ahead pulls from our masculine energy, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. In fact, women as a collective whole have had to play up their masculine energy in order to insert themselves into the business game. Everyone has both masculine and feminine energy but women tend to operate from a feminine center of gravity while men tend to operate from a masculine center of gravity.

    To Rethink // Art of Wabi Sabi

    In a world dominated by sleek white lines and minimalist, cold interiors, INA + ILIA is on a mission to add more splashes of colors, bold prints, and intricate handmade styles mixed in with both new and old pieces within your home. There is a warm and inviting feel to the style that allows one to fully relax in a space that honors nature’s cycle of birth, growth, and erosion embracing an objects aging as if it had its very own spirit. It also honors handmade items that come with flaws, which we see as marks of love. At INA + ILIA, we have fully embraced the Japanese art of imperfection, affectionately known as wabi-sabi.

    To Celebrate // Wedding Gifts
    It’s summer time, which means it’s bridal shower and wedding season. Wedding registries are fantastic, especially for younger couples who are starting out their lives and first homes together. But what about those couples who have not created a registry, have asked for donations, or simply don’t want to register for a bunch of stuff? Or perhaps they already seemingly have everything. If you’re looking for a thoughtful bridal or wedding shower gift, consider buying the bride to be a handmade item, crafted out of love, that represents something meaningful. Below are five of our favorite bride-to-be gifts at INA + ILIA.

    To Illuminate // Artist Spotlight

       Eugene grew up with a love of graphic design, which was a skill she honed while studying art and art history in France. It was there that she started to long for her homeland and discovered old Vietnamese postcards. She got the idea to turn these vintage postcards featuring strong female Vietnamese women into decorative home items, including pillowcases. 

    “I just loved seeing these fierce, elegant females from Vietnam on postcards and wanted to honor them in a new, different way. I thought about how to do this and came up with the idea of reproducing them in a new way.”

    Large is unique in what she does and keeps the nostalgic stories of these designs alive in her work. Support Eugene today by purchasing one of her pillowcases from INA + ILIA below.

    To Thrive // Conscious Kitchen 101
    The kitchen is considered the heart of the home for many reasons. It is where meals are cooked and eaten to nourish yourself, your loved ones, and your family. It is where you gather with friends and family to start and end the day, a place to celebrate, a place to reminisce, a place to be thankful for all that life has to offer. Cooking can be a meditative process for many - a respite from the noise of the world and the day. The kitchen also supports the service of transforming love into nourishing meals. Without good nourishment, we cannot fully step into our wholeness. We cannot truly rise and shine without having proper nourishment - one of our core needs as humans. Below are INA + ILIA’s five tips for creating a more conscious kitchen to support you in your conscious living evolution.
