Thank you so much to each and every one of you for your continued support. I get to make these videos for a living, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it.

Loving the simplicity and totally a zen place..love…
This is “out of this world”…….so creatively understated and elegant……..you get a 10…
This is beautiful and inspiring! 😀
Needs more calm in there. I prefer a zafu/zabuton but others are different and can use whatever. The wall decals had two of the same moon designs in a row, both going the same direction. Everyones different but I’d a little more… idk something in there. Like the little swing, but I feel like I wouldnt get any meditation dont in it , lol. I hope the bunny is better taken care of now. Bunnies arent really good kids pets, as they have delicate bone structures, and many dont like being handeld like this little guy seemed to not like (based on nose and body position). Also probably no problem in that family but vet bills are getting higher for exotic animals, it’s been a crazy few years. I have a free range bunny who never wants to be picked up but loves cuddles. on the floor or if he happens to jump up on the couch 🙂
Loved what you did with the stickers wallpaper.
such an irony! speaking of meditation combined with a rabbit being hold as a toy. 🙁
Love the moon phase design on the wall!!!! With the eye mirror it’s perfect!
ALSO- poor rabbit. I’m a bunny mom, and let that little girl keep holding the bunny like that and it will cause severe spine injury.
Hey, don’t ask people to ignore things they feel the need to speak up about! Yes, the decor was lovely, but I think the bunny is more important. Hopefully the message will be passed along that there is a proper way to hold rabbits so they aren’t injured
I love the space. It seems very relaxing and chill. The elephant sure was huge tho
Hi friends! There seems to be A LOT of comments about Luna the bunny, and not a lot on the decor of this video (which is what this video is about!) Though I understand the concern for animals (I have two little cats and love them more than life itself) I once again urge you to please think before you type. This bunny has been in their family for years, and like any animal or child, they know their pet the best. This bunny is one of the most loved animals on the planet, and just seeing 4 seconds of an animal on screen gives no insight into what kind of life it has. Just as I wouldn’t tell you how to parent your child or how to take care of your pets, let’s please keep the comments friendly and kind and about decor 💕
O my gosh! This is very pretty, but the poor bunny the girl was holding it incorrectly and it looked terrified 😳
I love that wall behind you! Actually thought it was handpainted until you showed how you did it!
I thought AG loved animals!?!
The plants on the floor could be very bad for the bunny, not to mention the way the child is holding it. 👎
The reveal didn’t even register for me. All I can see is how the girl is holding the rabbit. That poor bunny smh
Would it be possible for you to have a little more control over these comments? Can you make it so that the comments have to be okayed before they are posted? Because I agree, these comments are out of control, out of hand, rude, and have little to do with the video. And that is one very cool meditation room!
Looks lovely but find it a bit weird that in that little white nook there is only one small pillow, pretty sure it won’t be much comfortable to read. Also poor bunny!!
Anybody else cringe when they were all standing on that beautiful white rug with their shoes ON????!!!! UGH. otherwise beautiful space!
Sooo beautiful I want this room in my house. You out did yourself on this one. LOVE LOVE IT!!!
I LOOOOOVVVEEE this makeover!! I’m a massage therapist/reiki master and I meditate everyday. This gives me some fun ideas for my zen room😍 Thank you for sharing this tranquil space💗
Nice job as usual. Seriously though, a talk needs to be had about how that bunny is being held with no deflecting.
TRANquil, emphasis on the first syllable
OMG that is the cutest, sweetest rabbit I have ever seen. SO CUTE!!! The transformation is good too 🙂
I think the reading nook needed a small rug and more cushions 😋
Beautiful makeover 🤩🤩🤩
4:24 I will put a lamp in that corner. It will look beautiful. Maybe a plant hanging…
I came across this video today and am in love with what you did to this room. I have a small office/craft room at home and I want to carve out a corner for zen/tranquil/meditation area. This video has inspired me!
Parents might want to teach children how to care, handle and HOLD their pets. The kid might love the bunny. The bunny might not love her back when being dragged around like a stuffed animal.
The makeover is nice kudos. Ladies, educate the kid?
U could have saved that money by painting those textures by yourself..
the bunny is bigger than the little girl <3
please dont hold a rabbit like that they can go into shock they are not toys and need lots of space and teach your kids to hold them the right way they are very fragile animals!!
I love it
I seriously thought the rabbit was a stuffed animal koala 😂so when you said he was real… 😂😂
ZAMIOCULCAS! That’s name of the plant in the corner. She’s right, it doesn’t require much light. The decor is lovely. Alexandra is so talented!
Oh, I love rooms with nooks. I love Niagara. Winter in Ontario….heaven!
Beautiful space! You did an amazing job and gave me great ideas for our meditation room 🧘♀️🧘♂️🙏🏽 Thank you
those decals are super cute but i bet you could do it even cheaper with some paint and a banana lol
edit: finishing the video was hard for me bc of the way gemma was holding her poor bunny. I’m sure it’s well taken care of and loved but i hope she’s taught to handle him/her properly in the future. Bunnies really don’t like to be held at all but especially like that 🙁
Gifted Alexandra! candles and scented oils are meditative love items. They loved what you did with the space and I agree 👍
I pictured a warmer space for a meditation room but I guess everyone has their own feel for what makes a space tranquil
The bunny at the end killed me!
disliked for the response to the bunny being mistreated; also as someone else stated if the 3 second clip got more attention than the entire video maybe your video wasnt that entertaining? also didn’t even realize that the child put the rabbit on the swinging chair, not a good idea..
Beautiful! I love it!!
Dear Alexandra, you are a magician, cause you make people smile and happy. I think, it’s one of the important thing you do for people!!!
When the rabbit moved, I was like you meant real real!!! LOL!! that was a shock, totally thought it was a stuffed animal!!
Kind of surprised you didn’t secure the ladder to the wall in any way. A child or large bunny could easily knock that thing over.
Perhaps all the haters on this chain should be blocked!
So. Beautiful great energy !!!! 💕
That little girl is so cool and adorable!
