Inspired by…A wall of feel good messages

Wherever I have lived I have always tried to create a space that shows elements of my personality and inspires me. Throughout university I decorated my bland walls with colour and images that spoke to me, creating a space that that reminded me of what I love and things that made me smile.

Ali is someone I hugely admire and who inspires me with her creative practice and her approach. For 2015 my word was ‘Simplify‘. In 2014 my word was ‘Embrace‘ and in 2013 my word was ‘Grow‘. Reflecting on my word from the previous year, and selecting a new word for the year ahead, are some of my favourite rituals I have embedded […]
