Take a moment to look at your surroundings. How does your environment make you feel?
Do you feel calm, inspired, motivated? Or do you feel stressed, anxious, and depressed?
I discovered early on in life that I needed a calming environment in order to be productive and motivated. To create this, I learned how to be organized. Clutter gives me stress so I am as minimalist as possible. I also feel connected to nature so I add plants, wood, and natural fibers where I can. In other words, I created an environment that makes me feel good and inspires me.
Merriam-Webster defines ambiance as “a feeling or mood associated with a particular place, person, or thing : atmosphere.”
Ask yourself what kind of atmosphere is the most soothing for you?
A calm atmosphere might include an ocean theme, or forest/nature, or flowers. Maybe you are a person that is inspired by bright colors so a rainbow theme with pops of color is best. Maybe you like a cool retreat with stone, glass, and marble. Your style is whatever gives you the feeling or sets a mood that makes you comfortable and inspired.
Create an environment, or ambiance, that embraces your style. Incorporate items, both decorative and functional, that will set a mood for your living space. You will enjoy your home so much more and feel energized and comfortable every single day.
