Seren = star   Vida = life

With a strong instinct for colour and over 17 years of combined design experience, Kate and Manisha launched Serenvida, their intuitive colour and design studio. Both are trained textile designers and creatives who have exhibited at art/design and lifestyle shows e.g. New Designers and The Cardiff Festival of Wellbeing. They have a diverse background in the design industry (textile/surface design, vintage design retail, design journalism, prop styling) coupled with a love of holistic practices. Though Kate decided to take a long sabbatical recently, her ideas and values are still very much a part of the essence of all that Serenvida is! 

From the outset, their small design studio focused on colour energy to encourage positive living, and Manisha will carry on doing so. So what does this mean? At Serenvida, it's all about colour for living: in your home, garden or other space; and on your walls and accessories via textiles and pattern.  We love to produce stunning patterns, bespoke colour boards/moodboards, beautifully styled photo compositions, illustrations and colourscapes. It's all about enjoying a contented life. Commission me for artwork for any project.  I can also guide  your colour and design choices for the way you live and wish to flourish with a consultation; or perhaps treat a group of your friends, colleagues or employees with an intuitive colour & creativity workshop for wellbeing.  Manisha is an affiliate member of the nationally acclaimed Holistic Design Institute.  She also comes armed with a toolkit of energy practices honed over more than 17 year including meditation, reiki (master practitioner), colour essential oils (chromotherapy oils) and more. She has just completed an intensive 6-month DNA, new thought course to think far outside of the conventional box, and continues to learn and expand!

Serenvida is not here to be prescriptive; It's truly all about combining your space with your holistic needs, and how we can tailor our colour/art/design ideas to uplift, calm, energise or restore.  Colour is potent energy and by tapping into its potential, together we can create an outcome that fulfils both your energetic and  design desires.  Reach out to Serenvida for colour remedies suited to your specific desires: happily bridging the gap between design and intuition in the process.  At Serenvida studio, we have always referred to this as Colour Alchemy!

"Colour provokes a psychic vibration. 

Colour hides a power still unknown but real,

which acts on every part of the human body"

 - Wassily Kandinsky
