I recently decided to give my room a facelift considering it hasn’t been updated since I was in grade ten and thought it would be a good idea to paint the walls baby blue (sorry mom).
Prior to re-vamping my room, I failed to consider just how important the atmosphere of a place is, depending on the person. I hadn’t realized how little I liked the aesthetic of my former room, and now that I have made some changes, I feel a lot happier and more productive in this space.
Perhaps it sounds odd, especially if you’re the type of person who simply fails to care about the appearance of your room, which is absolutely peachy if that’s who you are. But for me, personally, I believe that a workspace or a space you call your own, for example, your bedroom, should reflect happiness and positivity in order to allow you to feel these same emotions when you’re spending time in a designated space.
I really didn’t make any significant changes to my room, either. I had the walls re-painted to a greyish-blue colour, a tremendously lighter colour than the loud and obnoxious baby blue I had before; I received some new bedding as a graduation gift from my parents which I absolutely love (check out Bed Bath & Beyond’s Coastal Living line, it’s bomb); I ordered some neat little cube shelves from Amazon; I integrated more plants and greenery into my room; and I hauled out my sister’s old vintage-looking cupboard and added some perosnal items to the shelves that are of significance to me.
These changes really were quite insignificant, however, the overall change they made to my personal space is, to me, incredible. I am so pleased with how it turned out, and in the process of giving my room a makeover, I now realize just how important the atmosphere of a space can be for someone who spends a decent amount of time in it.
