Spring is finally here and it’s time to open the windows, smell the fresh air, re-organize and innovate! In the book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Marie Kondo writes, “Keep only those things that speak to your heart. Then take the plunge and discard all the rest. By doing this, you can reset your life and embark on a new lifestyle.”
Once your out with the old and in with the new, you can create the kind of space that aligns with the quality of life you’re ready for!
It’s easy to get comfortable with the arrangement of our work/home space, and we don’t consider the possibilities of moving a desk to a corner with more light, creating a more productive work environment.
As things get shifted around, it opens our eyes to imagine new ways to decorate. There is an opportunity to create a visual goal that will make yourself, guests and clients feel as if they’re in the museum of YOU! Have you considered what your personal style is? Does the art, furniture, fixtures, and in your space portray your unique personality?
Here are a few ideas to get you inspired and started.
Consider installing adjustable shelves in your kitchen pantry that can be easily configured to maximize storage space. Bright yellow is a great way to brighten up any smaller space!
Scale your office space! Create extra space on your desk by hanging stationary organizers above your desk or on your wall or bulletin board, make it fun by mixing in some patterns.
If you don’t think you have enough space to create a sunroom, think again! It’s easy to turn walls into windows, creating the perfect nook for reading a book or an afternoon nap!
Transform any room with pastels, florals, and seasonal accents. This cherry blossom mural was inspired by Hanami, the Japanese tradition of going to see the blossoms in the spring. FUN!
The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, the sun is shining — with all of that beauty outside, consider how you can bring that beauty to your decor inside.
The ideas are endless. Transforming a space with a new color, design or accent will make a world of difference, as you continue to design the life you love!
