SoulSpace: Transform Your Home, Transform Your Life – Creating a Home That Is Free of Clutter, Full of Beauty, and Inspired by You by Xorin Balbes

SOULSPACE: Transform Your Home, Transform Your Life – Creating a Home That Is Free of Clutter, Full of Beauty, and Inspired by YouXorin Balbes created his eight-stage SoulSpace process to help his clients create homes that reflect and celebrate what is essential about their inhabitants. The process works for any budget, anytime, anywhere and results in inspiration, self-discovery, and practical solutions. Through the stages – assess, release, cleanse, dream, discover, create, elevate, and celebrate – you will explore not only the design of your abode but also your own interior: how you think, feel, and sense the world. Empowered with this self-knowledge, you will discover fresh ways to declutter, refresh, and enhance your living space. Xorin’s wonderfully unique technique will nurture and transform both your soul and your home.

Xorin’s thirty-nine impressive redesigns and renovations as a real estate developer and interior designer encouraged him to develop his own philosophy for home design, which he calls SoulSpace. His work and TempleHome have been featured extensively in publications including Architectural Digest, Wallpaper magazine, Traditional Home, Metropolitan Home, and The Robb Report, as well as in a variety of television profiles on Home and Garden Television, Entertainment Tonight, and many other programs and networks. Xorin Balbes Xorin is also the cofounder of the nonprofit organization Global Vision for Peace, which launched at the 2002 Academy Awards, with many prominent celebrities and Oscar winners sending a message to the world that Americans were standing up for peace. The organization’s focus and mission have recently evolved to promote awareness of and solutions to the burgeoning problem of homelessness, focusing on one person, one family at a time. Xorin divides his time between his Los Angeles and Maui offices of SoulSpace Home. Additionally, he is overseeing the creation of SoulSpace Sanctuary on Maui.
