Be inspired this spring!

Inspiration is a wonderful thing, it provides you with the ability to come up with super ideas and make changes for the better. There’s no better thing to get your creative juices flowing than a good dose of inspiration. If you find yourself feeling uninspired it’s time take action. Seek out the things that motivate you, that instigate feelings of passion and excitement.

Be Inspired by Nature.

Go for a walk in the fresh air, the great outdoors is a wonderful place. Look up at the blue sky and lose yourself as you stroll through the park.

Imagine a time when you were carefree and happy-go-lucky, perhaps as a child you visited the local park and played on the swings, hark back to that time and allow your childhood laughter to resonate in your mind. If you don’t fancy the local park simply enjoy your own back yard, forget mowing the lawn or hanging out the washing – just clear your head, pour yourself a long, cool drink and relax. Need a table to rest that drink on? The Tolix Side Table inspired by Xavier Pauchard offers a classic, industrial design and is perfect for outdoor use.

Be Inspired by Others.

All through history people have done the amazing, delivered motivational speeches and overcome the impossible to achieve big things. If you’re feeling a bit lack-lustre turn to others for a shot of much-needed positivity and creativity. Watch a TED talk online, there are some fabulous speakers who will jolt you into action. Check out renowned quotes from prominent people, they will help you to see things through the eyes of others. It’s also helpful to learn from everyone you can, especially those who have overcome adversity and personal challenges and come through it all stronger. Invite over a few good friends and remind yourself of all the positive things you have in your life.  Invest in some cool chairs (your friends will need to take a pew somewhere)!

The Ball Chair from VOGA was inspired by Eero Aarnio and has an iconic design. You’ve seen it on films (from James Bond to Men in Black), impress your visitors with your sense of style.

Be Inspired by Yourself.

You can achieve so much, take things back to basics and look into your very being. Meditation and yoga can be wonderful tools to help you relax and unwind, the world we live in can be far too busy, and leave us with little time to just have a moment to ourselves to think.

Find a quiet space within your home (or create a cosy corner), where you can kick back and take it easy. Put on some music, light a scented candle and go for subtle lighting, the Grasshopper Floor Lamp from VOGA was inspired by Greta Grossman and features directional lighting that’s hand-made from carbon steel.
