The world is changing every day and I never thought we would be in a position of wearing masks to protect ourselves from a virus.

It’s quite a surreal world right now but if there is one thing I know it’s the importance of self-care, including looking at your environment and making sure it works for and serves you.

Have a scan around you – is there anything that inspires you?

How does your environment make you feel?

How can you make immediate changes that will really lift your spirits?

Some of us are home schooling and prioritising organisation can really take the pressure off everyone.

There might be small things you can change now that will make an improvement to the way you feel when you wake up so you start the day in a positive frame of mind.

It could be as simple as getting creative and painting your bedroom a different shade for a change, displaying some flowers in a vase, putting some inspiring coffee table books in your living space, or adding candles or oils to your bathroom when you’re getting ready in the morning.

If you’re inspired by what is around you and it makes you feel good, imagine how much better you will feel and how inspiring this will be for everyone in the family.

There are plenty of great sales on at the moment, and we have some fantastic local businesses that are open, just in a different way.

Visit them online and I’m sure you’ll find something that will spark an idea in your mind.

Have a de-cluttering working bee where you can work as a family/team to decide if you need to keep everything and what changes can be made to freshen up certain spaces.

Why put up with things around you that don’t inspire you, instead put things around you that do.

When we work with our clients on their Interior Design projects in Geelong and surrounding areas we really like to tap into their everyday life and bring them design solutions that will make a difference to their world every day.
