Today we’re going to focus on organizing a little area so you can create a place of rest for yourself. I did this in my bedroom.
I moved the mirror to the other side of my dresser, then carried a rocking chair from the basement up to my room and put it where the mirror used to be. A candle on top of the dresser and a throw blanket over the chair finished the feel! Now I can go in there and shut the door if I don’t want to leave the house when I’m writing during my night “off!”
To create a place of rest in your own home, think creatively. Do you have any nooks or corners that aren’t being used? A stair landing, perhaps, or maybe an empty porch that is just begging for a little chair?
If you have a very small home, you could put a candle and lamp next to an existing chair to make it feel more welcoming and restful. Or maybe you could tidy your bathroom then place a lamp, a candle, and a book in there so things will be ready when you’re able to take a long, relaxing bath.
When you’re doing this, don’t worry about making a bad decorating choice – something The Nester taught me is that if you don’t like your new decorating arrangement, you can just put it back where it was before and nobody has to know!
