Decorating: What Dreams are Made of!
The Caroline Doll, CEO of POSH PR®, reveals her new studio debut and shares why you should decorate your dreams!
You know what the best thing about being a creative is? The fact that YOU can create. Anywhere, anytime, you have the power to change something for the better. And that’s JUST what I decided to do with my studio space: create and redecorate!
When I have an idea, I like to make things happen. Things didn’t quite turn out the way I had planned when I was shopping for a new office space a couple months ago. I had a vision. I wanted it done before the wedding, contract signed, and for the new space to welcome me with open doors after coming home from our honeymoon. But two days before my wedding, I signed a letter of intent, and I realized I just couldn’t handle bringing on anything else, and decided to let go of control. I decided to have faith and believe that the best thing will present itself. If the space was still available when I got back, wonderful! If not, then on to the next thing: DOING what I can with what I have.
As a creative, I have to be inspired by the things around me, my working environment. I may not have a new office space to decorate, but I DO have my studio. So I got to work. I re-painted my walls with a bold black and white stripe motif, which is the perfect backdrop for my FABULOUS new pink tufted sofa. I selected a few of my favorite outfits, sequined with inspiration to hang on gold hangers on an exposed, white clothes rack. I have my collection of fashion-inspired coffee-table books strategically placed so I can flip through their pages when I need that extra-surge of adrenaline! Even small details, like a freshly cut rose on my marble table make the difference! It’s alive and beautiful and makes me feel alive and beautiful! At the end of the day, it truly is the little details that make all of the difference. This goes for how you run your business, too!
Your workspace is a reflection of who you are. Whether you intend for it to or not, your atmosphere embodies the mood and ideas you hold. To your client, it’s another language telling them who you are! When we curate our surroundings, something bigger begins to happen. You are taking one step closer to that vision you have for yourself. You are CREATING, and bringing your DREAM into life. My space is the me I want to be: girly, stylish, classic, and pink!
I’ll leave you with this quote: “The past memories, present experiences, and future dreams of each person are inextricably linked to the objects that comprise his or her environment.” What kind of dreams is your environment made of?!
