It’s a new year, and we think it’s time for a refresher on what living the Mettā lifestyle truly means to us! At Mettā Home, we believe in creating havens where self-care, benevolence, and consciousness thrive. From our interior design work to our Airbnb homes, our mission is to infuse spaces with the Mettā lifestyle – a way of life that fosters love, kindness, and harmony with both ourselves and the planet.
The Mettā Way of Life
At the heart of the Mettā lifestyle lies a dedication to love and kindness towards others. We understand that nurturing personal well-being is essential for putting love and empathy outward. You can’t pour from an empty cup! By prioritizing self-care and maintaining a positive relationship with our own needs, we can better care for those around us.
Mettā Home In Our Interior Design
Through our approach to interior design, Mettā Home embodies the values of loving-kindness. We create spaces that are not only
aesthetically pleasing but also embrace comfort and rejuvenation for your family’s way of life. Our designs are mindful of both the structural needs of your home while also considering the dynamics & needs of your unique family, ensuring that we’re creating an inviting and functional space for all the memories you want to make.
And we know it’s not a home without the heart. That’s why we encourage incorporating personal elements (like family heirlooms) into our designs, allowing your sacred space to reflect your unique journey. We want to create spaces in your home that are beautiful and thoughtful, but not always about what’s trendy. A recent job we worked on had a client wanting to showcase an heirloom grandfather clock, but needed to balance that with the fact that they’ve got 2 small children who need to move freely throughout their space. So we did just that! We love to use what you already have, the things that mean the most, and the items you love to show off. It’s your home- you should love the things in it and the way they make you feel!
Mettā Home in our Airbnbs
As hosts, we extend the Mettā lifestyle to our Airbnb properties to ensure our guests experience a truly loving and caring environment. We pay attention to every detail, from providing luxurious bedding (that’s also made of recycled materials!) to thoughtfully chosen amenities that promote relaxation and rejuvenation (like our beloved incense from Bali!). We use cleaning supplies that are safe for the environment, and work to source furniture responsibly, recovering or reusing styles when possible. Whether you are going through a major life transition (like moving) or just looking for a soft spot to land while traveling, our designs take into account the deep need for solace and rest, providing a sanctuary for relaxation and self-reflection.
Sustaining The Mettā Lifestyle
At Mettā Home, we’re not just about creating beautiful spaces; we are also committed to sustainability. We use eco-friendly materials in our designs, promoting recycling and repurposing. For example, Some of the fabrics we use are made from recycled water bottles, reducing waste and contributing to a healthier planet. Furthermore, we support local businesses that prioritize ethical practices, try to provide products that are made in the USA when possible, actively engage in water recycling initiatives to give back to the community, and strive to work with designers who practice these same mentalities.
By embracing self-care, kindness towards others, and environmental consciousness, we create spaces where love and compassion flourish. We invite you to incorporate the Mettā lifestyle into your own homes and lives, fostering a sanctuary of love, kindness, and harmony. Together, let's cultivate a world where every space radiates the warmth and compassion we all deserve.
