I’m a lover of symbolism – I observe it and tune in to it daily.
Whether it’s recurring number sequences, a flower, a tree; or an insect or animal that crosses my path – I feel these encounters are synchronicities that offer us messages, insight and guidance.
I often advise clients to introduce symbolism into their homes, especially if they are struggling to find the perfect artwork or a key piece to begin their decorating process.
Here’s a few examples of animals, flowers and trees – and the symbolism of each – that could be incorporated in images, ornaments, flower arrangements, even the wood used to make the furniture and more:
Elephant: co-operation, strength and longevity
Crab: intuition and protection
Camellia: union between man and woman, passion and love
Peony: good fortune, protection and a happy marriage
Olive Tree: peace and friendship
Oak Tree: knowledge, energy, purity and constancy
Dig deeper and discover symbolism – explore and learn – and you might just find it enhances your decision-making and helps you create a more soulful home.
