Recently, we converted our guest room into a large office. We still have a room for visitors, but it has been moved to another place in the house.
It is so much fun to use a room in a different way than before, and experience the great functionality of it as well.
I can now hold more people in the office for small groups, and other activities not formally able to accommodate.
Additionally, it has prompted clearing out closets, and arranging paperwork for enhanced organization!
A change like this or similar adjustments can breathe new life into us and renew our excitement which is a wonderful outcome.
What changes do you want to make, or have you made already that you are excited about?
I was at a party the other day at a home I hadn’t been to before, and was very impressed by one of the rooms within it.
Beyond just being beautifully designed with high ceilings, wonderful color schemes and gorgeous windows overlooking a lovely landscaped backyard, the room had such cozy warmth about it.
It turns out that the hostess is an artist, who created the charming environment for inspiring her various masterpieces.
There were so many personal touches added to the arrangement of her artistic supplies and other tools necessary for her particular needs. The whole space had an aura beyond an ordinary home office or studio.
It got me thinking about the importance of having our own space or private oasis that is uniquely suited to our individual tastes and motivations.
Whether it’s a writing room or painting studio or anything in between, it is wonderful to have an environment that embraces our originality, and the feelings of peace such a space can provide.
What is your favorite private oasis?
