The 5 Best Ways To Stay Motivated Writing A Blog-An Interior Designer’s View

Staying motivated while writing a blog can be a bit daunting at times.  Especially when you are new at it!

BLOG – A regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style.

A year ago, our design firm Laurel Bledsoe Design, did not have a blog.  Reading a blog about a subject we are interested in is a pleasurable experience.  Something to look forward to when the author posts a new article.  Our favorite bloggers post on a schedule we expect and somehow they never let us down.  Now that we write Little Black “domicile”!, we understand how important it is to stay motivated.

The Best Interior Designers Are The Best Listeners

THE TRICK TO A SUCCESSFUL INTERIOR RENOVATION PROJECT IS VERY SIMPLE

A good life is not a place at which you arrive, it is a lens through which you see and create your world.” ― Jonathan Fields

With technology today, we all have an image of what we think our homes should look like.  What they should convey to the world and endless sources telling us how to achieve this very thing.  To some extent this has always been the case.  The design industry is based on finding the new, the better, and presenting the best in everything.  Our firm is small and has been for 35 years.  Our approach to good design will always be the same because it is what our clients expect and we continuously strive to deliver.

ARE YOU CELEBRATING THE IMPERFECTIONS?

If not…maybe you need to talk with us.

The beds didn’t get made before the day took off.  Artwork is askew, that is if that last vacation shot is even framed and hung.  Photos are fuzzy and work lurks unfinished on our desks.  The wood floor has a life’s worth of scratches.  The bath is no where close to the spa retreat we crave and we still have to clean the renovated kitchen.  Sound like somewhere you know?
