Tip #5

We all have items that are not so pretty to display, right? and many of us don’t have enough space in their closets too? to solve this problem I used the structure of my room. for example. I Have this protruding wall that prevent pushing my bed all the way to the wall. So I used this space to store some of my workout equipments and accessories! and I AGREE IT’S KIND OF MY WARM UP TO BRING IT OUT OF THERE 😀

My last Tip

Is to try to specify a spot for each task in your room/place! It make it less boring especially if you spend a lot of time in it. For me my desk is the place when I want to work on my website/blog or study. Obviously my bed is for sleeping and relaxing. My crochet corner is for crocheting and CHILLAXING. Finally I have an empty space in-front of my mirror at the center of the room where I do my pilates, Yoga and jumping rope workouts!

I hope I inspired you to do something pretty. And if I did! Please share it with me whether in the comments section bellow or on my Instagram.
