Inside Out Interior Re-Design
Life Coaching Meets
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
ourselves and our lives by...yes!...re-arranging
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.

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.
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
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.
