Altar Your Space is an invitation to rethink your home and find the sacred in the simple and attainable, creating an intention that allows your environment to reflect your consciousness. Create a home within your house, and accentuate your vision of the sacred within your home.
Humble or grand, your home should be your sanctuary. For many of us, however, what often used to be a safe haven has become a place to “put our stuff". Altar Your Space will show you how to set an intention, surround yourself with things that bring you to life and infuse your home with consciousness.
Sacred furnishings, beautiful pieces sculpted by human hands from real wood, colorful textiles imbued with spirit and purpose — these should be the foundation of one’s home. Finding the traditional role of interior designer outmoded in many ways, guide Jagatjoti Singh Khalsa provides a foundation for an exploration of self-discovery through the expression of “altaring” one’s home environment.
Using bold examples of transformed homes including those of Sharon Stone, Jeremy Piven, Joely Fisher, Adrienne Brody and Shiva Rae, Khalsa demonstrates how to create a sense of sacredness in your living space – whether it’s a bathroom, kitchen, a children’s playroom, a home office or the entire house. Drawing inspiration from the East; a team of craftsmen and artisans in Rajasthan and elsewhere in India, Khalsa suggests simple ways to fill your home with a spirit-infused décor. Discover within these pages the creative use of antique Chinese wagon wheels, silk bedding, Tara statues, Asian pine tables made from 300-year-old railroad ties, Antique screen doors and Kela vine bedding that bring an eastern sensibility into the modern home.
Including 150 full-color photographs, Altar Your Space illuminates how small changes and a new perspective can make all the difference in the effort to live a grateful and radiant life.
