After my house move in September my first priority was to get my living space sorted. And, on the whole, I’m pretty happy with it now. (Especially since the arrival of my Christmas / Birthday rug!)
I decided my next step was to focus on my home study. And I’ve hit a wall. Though not literally, cos… well… I can actually see ‘n’ stuff.
I want my study to be an inspiring and creative space. I initially thought I’d make some sort of
wanky dream board / vision board, but decided there was no way I could make something useful that would look vaguely pretty, so decided instead to get some interesting and inspirational art for my walls.
Except… the room still feels empty and sterile. Not welcoming or inviting. And certainly not inspirational.
I know this is the epitome of a first world problem. Indeed I’ve had houses without a dedicated study space. Yes, EGAD!
And, I do realise significant proportions of people around the world don’t have access to food, shelter and water. Let alone free speech. And then there’s the whole issue of the seriously unpredictable and petulant US President-elect! So I really should apologise about the very existence of this post.
However – back to me!!! – I just can’t work out how to improve this bloody study. I’ve got a rug to put under my desk. And a tidy-up wouldn’t go astray. Perhaps a more comfortable / pretty desk chair would help?
Of course what really scares me is that it’s not the room at all. That it’s me. That I’m creatively stifled. Apathetic. Lazy. Or talentless. Or is it just that I’m not committed enough to do…. whatever it is I’m wanting to do.
Any suggestions? Do you have a home study or nook you find inspirational? Do you think perhaps it’s ME and not the study?
