For many of us, this last year has been one of turmoil and upheaval. Yet, it’s also been a time to reexamine, rejuvenate, and renew our commitment to beauty and fashion.
Maybe it’s that spring is in the air. Today the daffodils are open. Some have already turned a bit softer. The tulips are wide open and smiling in an assortment of colors. Pink. Purple. Red. White. Orange.
I trust that like the flowers of spring, you are ready to reignite your inner decorator.
Here are a few thoughts to encourage your exploration.
Open Up To Beauty
If you’ve been feeling a little, or more than a little, starved for beauty—well, you are not alone.
Just recently I went shopping for the first time. It was thrilling to be out and about amidst color, pattern, fabrics, and new options. I fell in love with dresses all over again. And, let me tell you, if you haven’t been to your favorite store yet, you have a treat coming.
Of course, it’s not only the delight and discovery process of finding new treasures that is so invigorating. When you have a fresh look, a new color, or sparkly new sandals, everything just looks and feels different.
You’re not defined or limited by the old, worn-out pair of sweats that’s gotten you through the last year. You don’t have to pull on that outfit one more time. You know, the one that’s been your go-to home gear for way too long.
Now, I’ll be the first to admit, my standards sank during the last year. I fell into some pretty grungy attire for around the house. But the combination of good news about the vaccine, springtime, and the emergence into a new normal has changed all that. I’m ready and opening up. Just like those springtime flowers, I’m ready to show my true colors and not hide out in faded sweats anymore.
Explore Current Decorating Trends
Naturally, what we wear is a daily decision. It’s one of the most immediate places to make changes, experiment, and transform our state of mind.
But, the same holds true for our interior décor. The fact is that even if you don’t buy something new, you can still shift the subtle mood and feel of any room.
When you give space to that inner sensitivity, I know you’ll look around each room with fresh eyes. Perhaps you’ll notice trends that no longer work. After a year of being at home, you may be rethinking that style of one-big-room for everything. I know I have.
I’m so into private spaces, doors, and creating serenity. In addition, have we all had it already with the modern farm look? I’m ready for some color, graphic patterns, and hearty embrace of a profusion of patterns.
Expand Beauty and Fashion
So, let’s just sit for a spell and talk. You’re giving your wardrobe a makeover. Bravo! You’re examining your home and kicking up the decoration a notch. Can’t wait to see it.
My hunch is you are thinking about how to expand your energy, profession, and lifestyle to include more beauty and fashion. I know I am too.
That’s why I’m intrigued with the whole concept of interior decoration. I always kind of confused the terms: interior decorator and interior designer. The words are so close together, it’s easy to mix them up.
But actually, they refer to two distinct professions.
An interior decorator is someone who uses paint, fabric, furnishings, and accessories. They are wizards at transforming the existing space and creating a new feeling, ambiance, and impression. Architects, developers, and homeowners often hire a decorator.
An interior designer is a person who creates functionality of interior spaces. They work with elements such as room shapes, floors, and walls to design efficient flow and functionality. Sometimes, after implementing their designs, they take on the role of a decorator.
With this in mind, which role appeals to you?
With spring in the air, I know you’re opening up to beauty, sprucing up your interior décor, and expanding your career choices. Without a doubt, this is the best time to expand your lifestyle to embrace beauty and fashion.
