Today, our blog touches on the topic from a month ago: Is Your Personal Image A Reflection of Your Home? Many readers sent me their opinions about this topic, and we had some great discussions. Thanks again to all who participated. I was so encouraged that I have decided to do a Part 2.
Image in the dictionary says it’s an imitation, representation, or similitude of any person, thing, or act, sculptured, drawn, painted, or otherwise made perceptible to the sight, a visible presentation, a copy, a likeness, an effigy, a picture, a semblance. Image spreads itself across lines into every part of life. Therefore, I feel it is an important issue and make a habit of exhibiting in a positive way. For the purpose of this blog, we are defining image as a personal likeness or reflection of a person’s image to their home image. Is Your Personal Image A Reflection of Your Home Image? – Part 2. This blog speaks to how your personal image and your home image are so closely related to one another. When you first see someone, without speaking a word, your thoughts begin to form and create who you believe that person really is. You may decide you don’t care for that person. What about the person’s age, where they live, how their home looks, what type of job they have, what type of car they drive; this, all in a matter of a few seconds. What I want to point out is you cannot stop someone from thinking and forming their own opinions without correct information. Your home is a reflection of you. A person sees you is exactly how they see your home in their mind. Does it matter? Probably not, but possibly so. Why? Because, it is much easier to spend a little time thinking about who you are, and reasons why you control the message you wish delivered. Do not leave that to someone else to do for you. Your home is your haven, your castle and your extension of who you are. Make the message real and true.
Accentuate Home Styling & Consulting is a different type of interior decorating company. We use ‘image’ as a major tool to complete the look of your home to represent the real you. No need for others to speculate, they will know just from your positive image; they will know that your positive attitude about self reflects the same message in your home life. We work with you, whether in person or through our E-Decorating process (online) assisting you in your Do-It-Yourself process of decorating. We believe image is purposeful to how you enjoy your home and lifestyle. It doesn’t matter whether you’re downsizing (a smaller space), up-sizing (a larger space) or right-sizing (staying right where you are), we work hard with you to help you reach this goal. You will feel empowered and reassured about how “we” reach decisions about the space in your home. We are your company of interest and image. We care about what you think, how we meet your needs, and make it affordable for you as we go through the details of positive living in your home. So, the next time someone meets and greets you, they may be thinking how positive your demeanor represents you, or how negative they think you are. Please do not give anyone any reason for not thinking in a positive way about you.
I want to express the fact that I have been writing and publicly speaking about the importance of image in each person’s life for several years. I was a personal image consultant and presented presentations to organizations and companies. I encouraged others to become aware of the silent message(s) they send to others. My purpose is to think about how you appear to others, so there are no regrets down the road. I am not stating this as the most important issue to you. It means sending a message you want to be remembered by. Then, the image you project will definitely count.
