52 Simple Ways to Create a Beautiful Space: February Challenge

This is the challenge for the month of February in the 52 Simple Ways to Create a Beautiful Space, the system for those of us who get overwhelmed with the big picture. It is a system broken down into small, doable steps.

For February, we are going to focus on the bedroom, the first place we see when we wake up, and the last place we see before we go to sleep. Our day begins and ends in this space. Let’s make it one that rises up to greet us.

For February…

  • Clean/de-clutter your nightstand and make it pretty with flowers or herb plants.
  • Make your dresser beautiful. Clear off the top if anything that is on top of it. Then take a step back and think what would be beautiful there. Flowers, plants, your favorite beautiful books, a pretty lamp, a print, or inspirational quote. Flameless candles are perfect for the bedroom, especially ones on timers are auto-off settings.
  • Scan your bedroom. Try to look at it with fresh eyes. Is there anything that can be removed? This room should be our sanctuary. This week, look at your room with the eyes of a minimalist. Keep this space sacred and special. Less is more. If you see an area that has become a hot spot for papers, laundry, clothes, clear those spaces and find a place for those things, not a visible area in your sanctuary, but a place that will keep them from taking over your sanctuary.
  • Create a basket of your favorite things, beautiful and inspirational books, a book about your hobby, a novel you want to read, latest magazine you’ve been wanting to read, music, or movies. Remember, these are just your favorite things, don’t let it become too overwhelming…just your favorite things or things you want to do or read soon.

    Hi Topaz! Oy, you should see my bedroom. Or…maybe not. I have all kind of junk on my dresser. It’s like a flat, empty surface is just calling me to cover it.
    The thought of using ‘new eyes’ to look at a space is a good one. It’s so easy for me to overlook clutter. I like my space to be clean, but I generally gloss over the extra heaps of things I don’t need.
    Another great thought for when I’m up and at ’em! Is the bedroom a place where you find a lot of clutter?
    Monday blessings,
    Ceil

      Oh, Ceil, you and me both. I practically live in my bedroom. It is my fortress of solitude. Sadly, with the various health issues over the last couple of years, it has been a messy fortress of solitude. Oh, to clean house with a healthy body. That is the dream. Ha ha. I have made HUGE progress doing this challenge. HUGE. It is amazing how wonderful it feels. Now that I have organized my work space, I am finding a few minutes each day helps me to conquer those stacks of papers and clutter. I knew the home office area was key. I had to have a good space for putting things. I am hoping to be completely done with the stacks by March. Imagine. A world without any paper clutter. Imagine being able to quickly clean without the mounds of stuff to go through. Imagine having a place for everything and knowing where to put it. I am starting to think it is actually possible now. We’ve got this, Ceil. 🙂
