Creating An Inspirational and Lasting First Impression

How many times have you walked into some where, lets say a reception area somewhere, maybe a doctors, maybe the dentists and made an impression on the spot. A few years ago Ellie had an appointment and the reception area wasn't the best. Where there could have been comfortable and impressive office reception furniture, there were tatty chairs, ripped posters, and regimental and tired looking furniture. She immedietly got aggy, her, and my first impression wasn't great, she was nervous as it was and this area was supposed to be the place to settle her nerves.

As we sat waiting, we was fully expecting to walk into Miss Trunchballs office, when in fact  the actual room we were invited into was bright, clean, cosy and comfy. A complete contrast to what had met us previously. The staff we spoke with completely lovely. But that first impression? That is what she remembers mostly.

I am currently in the process of bringing together a small home office area, primarily for myself, to inspire me to get my blogging mojo back. You probably have this image of bloggers sat in a trendy home office right? Well, I currently sit on my living room floor at the coffee table, and its not the most inspiring space to be creative!

What has this got to do with anything I started this blog post talking about you may ask? 

We want an area that we walk into and want to stay, as this area will be used by Ellie as a study area too, I need an area that looks great, that creates a lasting impression, and one that we will look at and be inspired to sit at, somewhere that makes me feel like a mum boss, somewhere I can create, somewhere I can be the blogger I know I can be! And somewhere that Ellie is inspired to be her best.

We have decided that we want white gloss, we want copper, and we want inspiring quotes to greet us when we walk into the room.

Finding furniture we both love and can afford (that girl ahs expensive taste!) is proving difficult but here ere are a few of the things we have found that we both love, including this chair from furniture at work, ikea desk. Mug and prints from etsy (which are both on order as we speak!) and the wall organiser, meant for a kitchen but shhh!, from Red Candy is sat in my bedroom waiting to be put up (review coming soon).


Come back soon to find out how we decorated our inspiring study area.

This is a collaborative post.
