A popular new trend known as scent-scaping is a way to divide your house and your day into different segments simply by using different fragrances. By compartmentalizing each room (or set of rooms), or even different time periods during your day (such as work, chores, nap), it creates a subconscious trigger to switch to a different state of mind. Now that more people are working from home, it is especially important to divide work time from family time or play time. Candles always are a great choice, but consider introducing incense to your home. While you’re at it, be sure to add some stylish incense holders that will not only serve their purpose of catching ashes, but will also be interesting conversation pieces. A few we love by local artist and designer Sarah Killen Ellman are now available at Sunday Shop. For these pieces, the artist uses an ancient lost-wax technique, cire perdue, to sculpt and mold the designs from wax before casting them in brass. The pieces themselves represent the duality of beauty and darkness so often found in New Orleans, and the story behind each one varies. sundayshop.co
