I’m Elka and as a busy mother, entrepreneur and designer, I love planning. It helps me stay productive and accountable, lowers my stress levels, and stops me from overthinking.
In the digital world, it can be tempting to do all my planning on the latest app. But there’s something special about holding a planner in my hands, about feeling its weight as I fill up the pages with dreams, hopes, and goals. Pretty planners are a form of artistic expression for me, one that honours my imagination and the life I’m creating.
That’s why I created Komorebi Luxe Planners, to reflect both the artistry of planning and its importance.
Bringing the Glorious Adventure of Language to Planning
Beautiful words offer moments of imperfect understanding and a sense of uniqueness that makes simple things special. Few cultures know this as well as the Japanese, who have crafted exquisite poetic words like Komorebi. Lacking an English equivalent, Komorebi describes the scattered shapes that the sunlight casts as it streams through the leaves.
You don’t have to be a poet from Japan’s ancient past to understand and appreciate the power of words. Love notes, life plans, thoughts, and tasks that take you towards your goals can all be artistic. And the right planner can reflect that artistry and symbolise your dedication to your imagination and the life you’re creating.
Design Meets Functionality
Your planner needs to reflect the creativity and spirit with which you live your life. That’s why I teamed up with artist extraordinaire Lililó to create authentic statement designs that are timeless, true art collectibles. The gorgeous, intricate hand-drawn illustrations will inspire you as you strive towards your dream life. The natural world is a constant source of inspiration and is at the heart of Komorebi.
Protecting this earth that we live on has to be part of any person’s long-term goals. That’s why all our gorgeously-designed planners are made from 100% FSC Certified paper, responsibly sourced from managed forests. Stylish, eco-friendly paper products to help you live a sustainable life.
Plus, our packaging is also biodegradable.
The Ideal Life Planner
I designed Komorebi eco-friendly planners to be able to encompass every aspect of your life, from your work appointments to your life goals. They have a simple but expansive format, one that will allow you to plan and practice your self-care, track your meals, sleeping patterns, and exercise, and plan your workdays in one place.
Even more importantly, Komorebi planners are designed to help you be accountable and productive as you work towards your life goals.
You’ll be amazed at how much you achieve in your life once you start setting your intentions in your planner each day and reflecting on them in the evening!
