How to Manage Beautiful. By Jeremy Kamiya. Life is beautiful: The family of blue jays that nests near your breakfast window; the dog that licks your face to ask for a walk too early on a Saturday morning; or the small child with doe-ish eyes, breaking your heart for one more cookie before bedtime, but... The blue jays set up shop above your car; the dog has no idea how cold it is without fur, and worst of all; there are no more cookies. Life is beautiful, but easier to appreciate when it’s not so demanding, in other words, when you can manage it. So here are some quick and easy (manageable) ways to bring some life into your home. Tip #1: Just add flowers. Add color, open up your room, and change your living space instantly with fresh cut flowers. Flowers are simple and don’t ask for much considering what they have to give. They are ready-to-go room changers that don’t require measurements, movers, contractors or permits. In the most humble of scenarios, an old jar and water produces instant, charming results; and money doesn’t buy charming. If you’re looking for a sentiment that money does buy, start by selecting the vase first. Treat the vase as more than just a vessel, but a stand-alone work of art. Once you’ve found that special vase, fill it with flowers befitting your message: a single rose or a bold bouquet - use the stage presence that is your vase to sing your song. To get the most out of your flowers, consider these suggestions: 1. Change the water every 2-3 days. 2. Trim the stems. Before you place them in your vase and after changing the water, cut about an inch off the stem at a sharp angle. It’s best to cut the stems submerged in water (or under running water) using sharp scissors or kitchen shears. 3. Keep your flowers away from heat and bright light. Sun and heat will speed up the maturing process and shorten the life-span of the bloom. 4. Lesser known fact, keep your flowers away from ripening fruit, especially apples and bananas. As fruit ripens, it releases a gas that basically tells flowers to drop their pedals and enter the fruiting stage of their life-cycle. Tip #2: Just add fish. Fun, easy and fascinating. Fish are not pets, they’re living design elements that can calm, captivate and mesmerize. Like flowers, fish are easy, instant focal points that will entertain you and your guests. There are hundreds of complicated options for bringing fish into your home, so let’s ignore all those and focus on the simplest: Betta Splendens - Yes, the humble and solitary betta. Bettas are both beautiful and low maintenance freshwater fish, which moves them right up to the top of our list. Bettas don’t require large fish bowls, tanks or filters, and they’re not very messy, even in small environments. Here are some suggestions for managing these little darlings: 1. When setting up or changing the water in your aquarium, be sure to use water conditioner. The pet store will give you the advice you need. 2. Change the water every two weeks. 3. Only one male betta per aquarium, or you’ll instigate a death match. 4. Accessorize your tank with sand and/or stones, as well as live water plants. Life is beautiful, and it’s easier than you think. Be inspired to bring a little nature back inside the four walls that we’ve put up for shelter. We’ve created a distance between the unpredictable and perilous nature of Nature, but as a result, have made it a chore to invite its wonderful side into our homes. It is not a chore, it is a reminder of who are, what we love, and the underlying reason we call beautiful things, “beautiful.” Jeremy Kamiya is the co-owner of Kamiya Furniture Gallery, and new local business offering one-of-a-kind furniture and room accents.
