           Because your Outside can Reflect
and Reform your Inside




Your Space is You!


The spaces where we live and work are mirrors
of who we are and who we allow ourselves to be.
Our environments reflect our sense of our
own limitations and possibilities. How we feel
about "our space" says alot about how we feel
about ourselves and significantly impacts our
mood, self-esteem, comfort, and well-being.


Give Your Space a "Treatment" and
 YOU Feel Better






We can grow and change our perception of
ourselves and our lives by...yes!...re-arranging
our furniture, art, and accessories. We have the
power to breathe new life into our spaces and
our personal outlook by using our existing
belongings and decorating out of the boxes
we've put ourselves into. As our environment changes, so do we.

Re-envisioning and re-positioning is not a luxury in your life and in your home:
it's a necessity!



Perfect if you are:

•    Moving into a new place, combining households,
      downsizing or upsizing

•    Going through any emotional life transition
•    Bored and wishing to enliven your space without
      spending a lot

•    Feeling "stuck," "blue," or experiencing
      "decorating paralysis"

•    Wanting to make something"new" out of
      something "old"

•    Integrating pieces you've bought or inherited
•    Wanting to clear away clutter and re-energize
•    Staging to sell and trying to move on

Ruthie's Background



Ruthie's passion for leading an inspired life and revealing the creative possibilities in the "unseen" guided her to create Inside Out Interior Re-Designę. Her talents go beyond creating a visual presentation to re-energizing and enlivening a space while supporting the personal growth of each client.

Her inspired re-creations integrate your inside and outside by transforming spaces that remind you of your inherent nature.  Drawing on her talents, knowledge, and experience in life coaching, the Enneagram (a personality model), creativity, theater, body-centered psychotherapy, executive coaching, interior design, feng shui, energy work, and nature-based ceremonies and rituals, Ruthie offers a holistic approach to your interior design that brings harmony to your environment, supports your life, and nourishes your spirit.

What others say about Ruthie’s Re-creations:





"When I got my divorce, I had limited funds. I was a person of means becoming a person on a budget. Ruthie made a very painful and overwhelming process so easy to deal with. I learned about myself as I let go of things and kept what I truly cherished. I love my beautiful home and feel better about myself than ever before."        M.S.-sales manager

"In the past two years, I’ve downsized twice, first from a 6000 square foot home to a 1500 square foot condo, and now to an 800 square foot apartment in California. Ruthie made my new spaces into homes that were more "me" than I was able to express by myself.  She opened up spaces, and moved and placed accessories in such a creative and innovative way that I have never been happier. Working with Ruthie was fun and gratifying.”         N.H.- lawyer and therapist

Essay from Ruthie's book:

A long time a go a teacher of mine said- "We are most ourselves when wearing a mask. "
Many years later, I might alter that phrase- "We can allow ourselves to be most ourself when wearing a mask." My phrase amplifies the implication that we believe we are most protected and ironically, most able to be authentic when wearing a mask. The fact is, we are never not ourselves. We have many versions of ourselves, and all the masks we choose to wear are a part of our whole person. The mask is constructed to allow certain things to be seen by others, and other things to be hidden from them. What we decide to show (consciously or unconsciously) and what not to show grows from how we perceive the world and the people in it, and how we perceive ourselves in relation to that world.  Our mask also reflects our relationship with ourselves. As one of the participants in my mask workshop said, speaking to his mask, "the gift you give me is a layer of insulation between me and the outside world."
 
The Oxford dictionary defines mask both as a noun and a verb.  As a noun it is- "a covering for all or part of the face which protects, hides, or decorates the person wearing it." Or-"an appearance or behavior that hides reality". As a verb, to mask is - "to prevent something from being seen or noticed". Why do we do this? Why not live by the motto "what you see is what you get?" But even that stance, in its extreme, can be a kind of mask as well, because what you see is never the whole picture.
 
From an Enneagram perspective, we can create masks to hide from the world and from ourselves that which we believe we are lacking, or something that we think we should have, like confidence, expertise, wealth or power. Sometimes we hide our great talents and gifts for fear that others will envy us and not want to stay connected. The type One might hide their mistakes or incompetence, to avoid being perceived as less than perfect by seeming completely put together and on top of things. The type Two might hide their neediness or sense of worthlessness, by showing everyone how resourceful, wise and helpful they are. The type Three might obscure a view of their failures or their secret feelings of "not enough-ness" by acting self-assured and showing off their successes. The Four might cover their fear of rejection with aloofness or rejecting and withdrawing first, or by being overly warm and accepting when they feel otherwise. The Five might mask that they don't know something or don't feel resourced enough, by arguing credibly even when they don't know, being condescending, just disappearing or dropping out. The Six might display a provocative and challenging exterior to hide their worry and anxiety, or conversely, appear the victim or helpless when they are very capable of meeting the moment but don't want to try. The Seven might appear confident and maven-like to keep their feelings of inadequacy, that they stronger in breadth but not depth, in the shadows.  The Eight might hide their vulnerability and tenderness, most especially from themselves, and consequently to the world, by taking a tough and forceful position that appears "not to care".  And the Nine might wear a beautiful, toothy smile when they don't want you to see that they would rather growl and bare teeth at you out of anger. We can recognize most of these masks and Enneagram energies within ourselves at different times and in different situations. Our core type, however, defaults to one of these masks most frequently.
 
No "conscious" choice about what we show or don't show is wrong. The question is, are we conscious of having made a choice at all? Perhaps our masks may need some remodeling from time to time. Perhaps it's time to try on a different face and see the gifts that come from doing so. The Outside reflects the Inside. Perhaps to grow and expand who we think we are requires some insight into how we limit that growth by our "unconscious" masks.
