I know far too many people who spend boatloads of money on little trinkets that they feel complete a room. I used to be one of those people – caring too much about the staging of my home. No more! BUT – I am looking for inspiration in my creative space, my writing room.
Minimalism is a lifestyle that helps people question what things add value to their lives. By clearing the clutter from life’s path, we can all make room for the most important aspects of life: health, relationships, passion, growth, and contribution. –The Minimalists.
I’m in a time of quasi-minimalism in my life. Minimalism isn’t just about having less items, but for this piece, I’m going to focus on the material things.
I recently decided to use one of my small bedrooms as my space to write in. It is mostly a storage room. I have my easel, canvases and paints, yoga mat, Ikea desk, laptop, chair and bookshelf. I also have a desk lamp and some random storage boxes. I don’t have anything on the walls right now. I guess you could say it is a room open for interpretation. But white on white on white isn’t doing anything for me, yet.
I’d like this space to be one of freedom and creativity. I noticed that I tend to write at night, when it’s dark and there’s nothing else to do. I’d like it to be more inviting – a space I want to be in consistently. But then again, how much of this is just me inhibiting myself from entering this place until I’ve exhausted all chores and tasks involved in home ownership to be completed?
I’m not tired, I’m uninspired. I need help!
