Hello my sweet sweet friends. Sorry it’s been so long, but I live in the northeast and we just had that horrible snow storm, and we have so much snow, it’s ridiculous…anyway… Have you ever wanted to work but just didn’t feel inspired? You wish that you could just have that one place, that office, that room, that you could just let all of your creative juices flow, but you don’t know how to get that? Ok well that was me and I’m so excited to say that I have created that place for myself. I’m going to share my 4 tips on how to create that space for yourself, because we all need a space where we can go and meditate, be alone,work, create, etc.
Lets get started…..
Find a space/room-So you want to find that space or room that you can make your own. I took our 3rd bedroom that we weren’t using.
Brainstorm the look-So after you find the room, you want to brainstorm what you want your room to look like, feel, etc. I wanted my space/office to feel peaceful and calming. I wanted to be able to meditate, do yoga, be inspired, but also have a sitting area, but in that, I wanted my desk so I can do all of my work.
Lay it all out and decorate-This step you want to lay out your space/room and decorate. Declutter if need be, start putting things where you want them to go. So for me, I got a light blue shower curtain with palm trees on it to remind me of the beach and used it as the focal point for my desk, then I put my desk up against it, I then took an ottoman and put it up against the wall underneath my window, and put a white pillow and a blue blanket on it. I then found this little stand, that I put next to the ottoman and put a silver plate on it, decorated that with flowers, my pens and a beachy candle.
In between my stand and my ottoman, I have this little basket that has my bible, devotional, notebook and a pen. Beside my stand, I have my rocking chair, and on the floor in the middle of my ottoman, my stand and chair, I have this beachy type rug…that way I have a sitting area. I then have a brown stand across from my rocking chair for my pictures and extra things, and then I have my desk. I also have white lights, flowers and candles everywhere, and an essential oil diffuser. And then near the door, I have my yoga mat so that I can do yoga whenever I want.
Appreciate -Now you can admire and appreciate the work you took to make your room, space, or office yours and enjoy it. You now have an inspirational space that you can let your creative juices flow into. I love my space, it smells amazing, it’s peaceful, it’s calming, and I can just relax and do work if need be.
So there are my tips on creating a space you love. Be aware of the space you want in your life because a messy space equals a messy mind. If you are feeling like you are confused a lot, or just irritated, or feel claustrophobic, take a look at your space and see if it’s messy and needs a little makeover.
