Top Five Design Tips for Today’s Woman – According to LiLu
Women wear many hats these days and you don't have to be working outside the home to be a clever multi-tasking 'busy' woman. Let's say intentionally engaged, enthusiastically involved, passionately curious! As we all long to lead a more intentional and mindful lifestyle, here are our top five design tips for inviting ease into your daily routine so you can maintain your ambitious schedules of all things that bring you joy!
1. HIRE A GREAT CLOSET DESIGNER
Let the professional inventory your current closet and instantly imagine how to thoughtfully organize everything you own so at a quick glance your wardrobe options are easily accessible.
2. HAVE A DESIGNATED SPACE FOR EVERY HAT YOU WEAR
Sometimes it is hard to keep track of which hat you are wearing - archival secretary? parent volunteer? board member? committee chair? Have a designated file and work space so your time isn't spent sorting through school fundraiser forms and your committee meeting notes.
3. DESIGN A SACRED SPACE INTO YOUR HOME (AND THEREFORE INTO YOUR LIFE)
Everyone needs a little time away...a retreat, an escape plan, even if just for a moment. This can be as simple as installing a lock on your bathroom door! Maybe it's your home office? Find room that is your own sacred space, whatever that may be.
4. CREATE THE MOST EFFICIENT KITCHEN
Healthy meals are the gas we need to fill our tank, an organized efficient saves us all time so we can focus on sitting around the dinner table.
5. DESIGN SELF-CARE INTO YOUR HOME
Time is precious, make room for yoga at home if that's your thing or install a soaking tub or steam shower. While a trip to the spa is lovely, working this into your routine closer to home makes self-care part of your daily habits.
