Do you consider yourself a creative? Do you work at your best when your inspiration is firing on all thrusters? If your home is where you create or simply an important space to you when it comes to mixing up ideas and finding new projects to work on, then you can make it into a much more creatively inspiring space. Here are a few ways to do just that.
Sometimes, it really can be as simple as making sure that you always have the right creative works to rest your eyes on when you are at home. Arranging artwork in your home can give you a series of images to dip into when you’re at rest, which can keep the creative wheels in your brain turning. Even if you’re not a visual artist, being exposed to art of all forms can help you pick inspiration from a range of places.
Choose energetic and bright colors
Be bold with your color choices. Some of the most creatively inspiring palettes out there make good use of colors that are bright, full of life, and catch attention. It’s not going to make your home very subtle, but embracing color can help you feel more mentally engaged when you’re in the space, which is crucial if you want to act on those sparks of inspiration that come your way.
Display your muses
Sometimes, it’s not a piece of art that inspires the soul. To some, the right figure or icon within an airfield can be just as important to them creatively. Someone you look up to, your muse, can be the perfect image to get you fired up to create. The classic image of Marilyn Monroe in bed might be the thing that gets your fashion inspiration running wild, for instance. Find your muse, find the images of them that best convey their artistic essence, and make room for it in your home.
Welcome some nature
When you’re spending your time indoors, what is it that you’re visually engaging with? Aside from your decor, you can make sure that you have different textures, such as those from the outside world, to occupy your eye. To that end, fill your planters with greenery and find some bold houseplants that can add a splash of color and energize your artistic impulses. Plants help your air quality improve, too—so it's a win-win!
Use all of your senses
Some of the deepest emotional experiences, especially those related to memory, are not triggered by the eye, but by different senses. Smell is amongst the most powerful of those. To that end, a good wax melt diffuser can help you fill your home with different scents, each of which might be the key to unlocking memories that get your creative juices flowing. Experiment and see what different scents can do for you.
With the tips above, your home should hopefully become a space that helps you release your creativity rather than keeping it bottled up. Finding inspiration isn’t always easy, so you need to make sure that your environment helps make it a place that sparks inspiration and brings you joy.
