Make it Yours

The Intentional Home and Inspired living is all about YOU!

So, this week we want to discuss HOW to create your first INTENTIONAL SPACE in your own home... and it's really simple.

Find a space and MAKE IT YOURS!

No matter how big or small your home, what stage you are in in your decor journey or what your budget, this is an easy, intentional tip that anyone can do.

First things first, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and think of the first place that comes to mind in your home that brings you a sense of peace, joy or happiness. Don't overthink this step, just go with whatever pops into your head first.

For me, it's my bathtub. Any time I need to relax or let go of anything from my day, I draw a bath.

For you, it could be your kitchen, your garage, your bedroom, anything. There truly are no restrictions on this space.

Now, it's time to walk into that space and take another moment to feel what it invokes. Are you relaxed? Did you smile? Do you feel good? HOW you feel is important to note.

If you can answer yes to any or all of these questions, then great! You've found your space.

If not, that's okay. Just take a slow walk around your home and see how you feel as you enter each room or area. Once you FEEL in your chest, or heart-space, a sense of calm, you'll know you've found it.

Now, once you've identified YOUR space, it's time to bring in your Intentional Elements.

Ask yourself this question, what do you hope to gain when you enter this space?

For each and every one of you, it could be something different. Maybe it's you need to quiet your mind. Someone else may need it to be a place to regroup and recharge. Whatever your answer, we will carry that into our intentional decor.

For me, when I need to escape to my bath, it's usually because I need to relax and center myself. So, my intentional elements include earthly properties. I have bath salts, greenery with stones, and a beautiful wooden bench. These items all help to bring in the unconditional love and grounding properties of mother nature, and after every soak, I definitely feel a sense of myself coming back.

But as your needs are unique to you, so will be your intentional pieces. Have fun with what you bring to your space. Think of items that help support how you hope to feel after you've left. And experiment until you find what works best for you to achieve the intention you have set for yourself and your space.

And if you need a little help, I'm always available with suggestions.

I'd love to hear all about your intentional spaces, so send me a message or comment on this post and we can share how we're bringing more intention to our homes and way of life.
