What would you do with this space? With this room? If the clutter was gone?
How do you decide what goes into your space?
Where does your inspiration come from?
What would you like to see in your space?
I know these are really tough questions. It can be hard to know what we want for ourselves and if you are overwhelmed with clutter it can feel almost impossible. How can you actually get your space to look like how you might envision it in your head? Having a vision for how you want your space to look is certainly a good place to start.
Some ideas and inspiration that might help:
- What do you want to do in this room? Think about what activities you would like to do here? What is the function for this space?
- How do you want to feel in this room? Feelings like calm, peaceful, relaxed, loved, respected, connected with others, proud…….
- What do you not want in this space? Maybe, you don’t want any clutter in this space or anything that doesn’t relate to the two points above.
- If you are stuck around a design/theme for your room……think about how certain colours make you feel. Do you have a favourite picture that you can use as your inspiration? Perhaps you can pull out a colour and add a splash here and there around the room.
It can be challenging to think about what you can do in your space. It can take a lot of time. Perhaps, there is a lot of stuff to clear out which can be quite the process. I just had lunch with a friend yesterday who has been semi-retired now for over a year and she talked about how she is just now thinking about what she can do in her basement. It continues to be a process for her as she slowly works on making this space hers. So, it might not happen quickly but working on small steps will get you to where you want to be.
