What is Alchemy

Alchemy is the transformation of matter. A medieval science and philosophy, it was primarily concerned with attempting to transform base metals into gold. The dream was to take something readily found and procured, and through a process yet to be uncovered, turn it into something of beauty and value.

Additionally, its practitioners—the alchemists—were also in pursuit of creating the universal elixir thought to be able to cure diseases, restore vigor, or bring eternal life. Today, alchemy is a metaphor for the process of healing and spiritual rebirth.

Alchemy for Your Home

Alchemists know that the process of making gold would not be a simple one. After all, anything worth having doesn’t come easy, right? Attaining something so valuable as gold would undoubtedly require effort.

The same is true for our homes. If we want to create and inhabit spaces that we truly value, we have to commit to the process. It will take time and hard work, but you will get there. You are an alchemist. Use colors to work magic on your home and find that beauty can come from the ordinary.
