As we find ourselves in such unprecedented times most of us are self-isolating which constitutes spending much of our days at home.
If you are anything like me, a list was made at the beginning of this lockdown of things that needed doing around the house and I tried to complete one task each day…
I’m still working on this!!
As an interior designer, like a family who live with a builder, there are always jobs that haven’t begun or if begun, not finished……
Our living spaces are vital to our wellbeing and although this may not seem apparent, the flow of space is the difference between a room that works well and one that doesn’t.
This may seem obvious to some but just by the moving furniture into different spaces or reassigning to another room will enable a more peaceful environment.
There is a difference between clutter and having pieces on show in each room – I personally love being surrounded by ‘things’ as each piece tells its own story and by having these pieces builds up a story book of memories that should make you smile and provoke a memory.
I have loads of artwork on the walls in every room including my kitchen, bathroom and stairwells …. My parents collect pieces of art which became both my sisters and mine after they died and I cannot express the joy I feel looking at these everyday – it’s the most comforting feeling as some of these pieces have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.
My Father sculpted so I also have some pieces that sit beautifully within my home – family members also have some of these pieces and I know they also get pleasure from them.
To change things up, moving artwork can make a huge difference to a room and bring in new colourways.
I do not think everything should match – mismatching creates personality and creativity as long as it’s within a theme.
Whilst you sit at home, look around with fresh eyes and if you think your rooms could flow better but you’re not too sure how to achieve this please email me and together we can take a walk around your home via zoom or facetime and I can assist you to make changes that will give you your desire space.
Contact me via email and I look forward to hearing from you.
Stay safe and well……………..
