Dark green and handsome, these three home interiors each take a tall stand on style. The first two of our dreamy dark green interiors have an offbeat sort of edge. Hot pink accents burst onto the scene via outrageous wall art and unique art sculptures. Quirky personality particularly shines in the second of these, as a more colourful and patterned eclectic vibe builds. We finish up with a home more dedicated to the dark green scheme, with less distraction. Instead, we find luxe interludes of glossy white marble, and complete aesthetic cohesivity.
Intùiti is a pack of 78 cards that really helps you dive into your deepest creative process.
It was born as a project of the Polytechnic University of Milan and it represents a new way of living the subject of creativity, an issue that is often superficially tackled. Instead of forcing the user to find an idea, as it happens with some techniques like brainstorming or the mind map, Intùiti invites to sit calmly and to feel what one has to give, remembering that creating must be a source of joy and satisfaction.
Intùiti proposes pointed suggestions, obtained from the analysis of classic tarots, that are a rich collection of archetypes. It has no divination purpose: each card is related to a thinking model that belongs to our culture, a powerful incentive that can put in motion creative and inspirational processes.
Intùiti is a synthesis of Design, Tarots, Numerology and Gestalt Psychology. It is both a serious game and a powerful tool that brings out the brightest side of creativity without employing rigid schemes.
Visual incentives and Tales
In the pack you will find two series of pictures: the primary intùitiand the secondary intùiti. The first ones are extensive inspirations; the second ones are more specific. To each picture corresponds an evocative tale that intensifies its sensation.
Each card represents a powerful incentive and is designed using Gestalt principles so you can recognize emotionally the related archetype.
You can play as you see fit. There are no main rules. It’s a tool for creative thinking based on visual and imaginary associations, so you just have to shuffle the deck, pick a card, and “let it speak”.
Give it a look: these cards are truly gorgeous!
It took over one year of study and development and then other 6 months for enhancement. All the drawings are handmade and later digitalized for the industrial production.
Intùiti is not an answer!
People often want to find the solution to their “creative problems” in a tool or in method; they would like to have an equation, an algorithm able to solve the real issue of Creativity: to create something new. But using a “recipe” for writing a novel means to have produced something, not to have invented something.
It’s important to reiterate: Intùiti is not an algorithmic function that can “make people creative”, or a scientific method able to produce thousands of brilliant ideas. It’s an inspirational tool: it’s not an answer, but a continuos question.

There is no consensus on how the name was derived at but it is agreed that this Sabbat honors fertility and creation. This was also a time when many cultures light Balefires. In some places that is still an honored tradition.
Beltane is mentioned in some of the earliest Irish literature, and it is associated with important events in Irish mythology. It marked the beginning of summer and was when cattle were driven out to the summer pastures. Rituals were performed to protect the cattle, crops, and people, and to encourage growth.

Walking the path of earth is living in harmony with nature in everything we do. The word nature literally means “that which is born.” When the poet e.e. cummings spoke of the difference between “a world of made” and “a world of born” in one of his most famous poems, he gave voice to trust in nature— recognize that the natural world is our home, our source, and the teacher of the wisdom we most need to learn- Philip Carr- Gomm
The Celtic symbol of the dragon is magical, one of transformation and eternal wisdom. The druids respected dragons as forces of nature, the guardians of mother earth and all things sacred, the protectors of nature and all living things. The dragon holds the powerful Celtic symbol of protection and power. These magical beings represented all that the universe has to offer.
Dragon energy was worshiped and used for the greater good. At special celebrations of the turning seasons of the year, to harvest the right crops, as a true guardian for all they held sacred.
The earth dragon has a symbolism of nature and all things connected to our Mother Earth. The earth dragon asks us to connect with nature in all of its beauty. The true wealth is not money but from the beauty of our land.
Call on the energy of the earth dragon if your energy needs grounding, or if you have lost your way a little, she will reconnect you to true source and bring back your power.
