Finding Your Quiet Place

It is said that reading stimulates the brain.  It aids in creativity, builds your vocabulary, and can make someone more empathetic to the lives around them.

The New Year is creeping around the corner and I have big changes coming.  No plans for resolutions this year, just adjustments towards a happier life.  I have a secret ambition to read more.  I have about 3 books in the queue.  One book geared to help me understand mental and emotional effects of certain sexual assault victims.  The second book is about inner body awareness for better living.  The last book will assist in my efforts to increase my criminal interviewing skills.

With that said… I will need a nice, cozy, quiet place to unwind and enjoy my new reads.

I am currently building a mini inspiration board in hopes of cultivating a space just for me.

Keeping things light and girly might be a little much.  Although I do love the pastels, mix in materials, and different textures.

I am more of an eclectic, romantic, and modern girl.  I like dimly lit rooms.  Scratch that…I loathe overhead lighting.  My space must be warm, cozy, inviting, yet whimsical.

My pick is more like this.

I prefer a collaboration of warmth and romance.  I love the masculine dark sofa and rugged wooden table.  Accents of roses, silver platters, and fluffy pillows makes it more feminine.

Add…

Your favorite fragrant flowers and candles.
