(PICTURE: JAMES MCNAUGHT)These wise words from the Dalai Lama seemed to ring with a certain truth as the team were compiling the issue you are now reading. With many of us now taking a more mindful approach to life, it’s no wonder that this ethos has particular resonance when it comes to our homes.Ironically, a sense of calm and serenity is not that easy to achieve, especially given the chaos that most of our daily lives entail.
