The stylized kanji (character) for the Japanese word "ki" was designed for Soulful Simplicity by Sachiko's daughter Elena, a BFA graduate in printmaking and textile design at Concordia University. You can find her these days at @elenaimaritattoo.
Ki has no direct translation - it means all of: heart, mind, spirit, essence, energy, intention, life-force and ‘nature of things.’
For us, this kanji really sums up the poetic and spiritual sense of how our inner and outer worlds are deeply interconnected. Our spaces reflect us: our essence, our energy, what we love, our intentions!
When we set up our surroundings mindfully, they support and inspire us to live the way we really want to live.
