RE-UP (re-decorate. re-model, re-emphasize, re-focus): THE ELEGANCE AND CREATIVITY OF YOUR DECORATING IDEAS
I have a question for you. What ideas do you have in your mind about change or outlook for the days ahead? You may agree that changes made to your surroundings can make a difference in how you feel and think (especially if you’re having a stressful time). I will find a project that permits me to expand energy by putting on my creative thinking cap and finding a project to begin. You can do this with a sense of ease!
- Pick up pad and pencil and begin writing down exactly what you’re feeling. Once completed, read it over; look for the nearest opportunity you can find which needs attention. This is your beginning.
Often times, our brain isn’t working to bring the ideas we’re looking for. Our head is thinking my way, and our heart is seeking to go in another direction. As we think about re-decorating or re-focusing of a particular space, we end up getting more stressed. No need to do that when you work it out with pad and pencil. Make a plan and then work your plan. RE-Up your space. It doesn’t have to be a major project. It could be as simple as adding something from one room to another. Look for things (you already have) to uplift and create a brightness, cheeriness and enjoyment to your present space. Your imagination and creative flow is now working together again. I always think a home decorating project is good and soon any stress you’ve had is gone. The results start to show themselves to your joy (or dismay). If you are unhappy with the current results, at least you have time to make changes. If you feel your project is going downhill ….what should you do?
- Do not give up or give in (when project moving in wrong direction).
- It doesn’t have to be a big project; it could mean replacing one item which will make a difference. Just pick a room and get started.
- Your project is underway. If you feel you have to spend money to complete your project, be certain to add that into your plans (no surprises).
Creativity is something we all have; some more than others. Don’t be afraid to try something different. I challenge my clients to bring me some ideas, and along with mine, we combine them for a magnificent outcome.
This blog wants you to concentrate and urge you to RE-UP. When you hear the word elegant do you cringe or run towards it with great expectations? When people speak about elegance in decorating they usually think … formal. However, when thinking outside of the box “elegant” relates to a relaxed atmosphere requiring things to have a place, the right colors and furniture. Think ….Elegance. What picture is coming to mind? Figure out what you like, and what makes you feel content and peaceful. What is your decorating style? I like a contemporary look, a mixture of styles and color for emphasis and POP. Are you getting a picture in your mind, yet? I enjoy how excited client’s become as we explore all the possibilities available for their project(s). It’s time to RE-UP and put on your creative thinking cap. Stretching and visualizing the unimaginable often surprises.
As the project gets underway, the imagination fills up with ideas and excitement being developed for your project. Today, more than ever before, we all have the opportunity to explore creativity, whether it be decorating or some other type of design. Let it be your Originality. What are you good at? What do you enjoy when it comes to decor or decorating? I RE-UP often, and it keeps me in a creative mode and productive spirit. Understand, no two people are going to have the same talents or ideas; similar, but not the same.
This is what we do as a company. We help you discover your creative self. How much fun is that? How great to have this opportunity to create something within your home that is different and unique to you. This is all part of Re-up and exploring your talents. If you think you have no creative ideas, then think again. Then…..Let’s talk. How do you think most television shows start? They figure out a need or want the viewer would enjoy, and they build on that. When we see results it lights up our creativity button, and we are ready for a project. They have appealed to our creative senses. Imagine discovering something that is “so you” for your own space. How exciting and fun that would be! Collaborating is good, and we would urge you to discover what you’re decorating talents are. This is where DIY (do-it-yourself) begins. I close now and invite you to put on your RE-Up cap and start the creative juices flowing or contact Accentuate to help you get started. Either way, we wish you GREAT RE-UP!
