DIY inspo home decoration

Hello guys! <3 Today I'll tell you about some cute home decor ideas that I've been planning for quite a while (as you probably know from my Instagram haha - @arockchicklife) and I'm very happy to finally show you. Let's start with the fact that I really love inspirational and motivational quotes because they all tell a stories that we can learn a lot from. So everytime I stumble upon a cool new quote I usually save it on my computer or to a Pinterest board but I forget about these precious quotes soon enough and I don't reread them often. I wanted to change that and to make sure I don't forget about the lessons they taught me.

So I came up with the idea that I should try to use them as home decoration. The process included me trying to come up with a cool idea, choosing which fave fave inspo quotes I want to use and then printing them out.

The option that worked best for me after trying out some ideas was to arrange the pictures on one of the doors of my wood closet. The contrast between the pictures and the wood is great and also my closet is kinda in the center of the room so I check the quotes out pretty often and stay inspired all the time.

Then I realized that one idea was not enough for me :D There were so many other things I came up with and I ran out of quotes before I could try them out. So I printed out more pictures and tried more ideas.

Here are 2 of the best ones, hope you like them. :)

 

#1 Cool workspace deco

Your workspace at home is probably the best places for inspo quotes and cute pictures. You spend lots of time there and you really need inspiration when you're working on something. If you have a pinboard or a wall grid you could arrange some pictures together with your notes, to do lists etc. If you don't, just use the wall and glue or hang some beautiful pictures . You will stay inspired and also have a super Instagrammable workspace. ;)

#2 Your own wall deco

I have always been a fan of the idea of art wall pieces where you can create different shapes with photos. It's cute and makes the whole room light up. Plus that you can arrange them any way you want so you have lots of options and can get creative. For example you could pick a color theme and create some shape as I did here or try to create a color effect using photos in different shades of the same color or literally anything else you want.

Hello guys! So I recently celebrated my 23th birthday and I took some time to reflect on the past years. I happen to be a little bit of a thinker so I thought a lot about how I have changed throughout the years and how far I've come in terms of following my dreams and being happy to just be me.

And here are the 23 things I have learned in my life so far. Hope it will be interesting for you to read these and that they will inspire you or teach you something. Enjoy!

 

#1 Smile. Always smile. It makes everything better.

#2 This quote by Dr. Seuss — 'Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.' is just so true.

#3 Whenever you're sad or confused just look at this. This is happiness: http://imgur.com/gallery/I1TBl29

#4 'It is not happy people who are thankful. It is thankful people who are happy.' !

#5 Kindness is the best gift you can give to anyone. Spread it freely.

#6 Life is too short to not do what you want or not chase your dreams. Any minute you waste is a wasted chance to be happier.

#7 The best moments in your live will probably not be in photos because you'll be too busy having fun.

#8 If you're lucky enough to find a true friend, cherish that person/those people and never let them go, they're your treasure.

#9 The sooner you stop caring about pleasing people, the better.

#10 A good laugh and a hug can heal anything and instantly make you feel better.

#11 You are never too old for cartoons, jumping around when you're happy and openly talking about even the smallest things that excite you and you genuinely care about.

#12 You don't need to be perfect to be happy, look at all the people you love with all your heart and how their imprefections don't matter to you.

#13 It's totally fine if your brain is '99% quotes and lyrics'. You're probably a great and fun person to talk to.

#14 Things are not always what you expect them to be. So this is a list of only 14 things, not 23 although I said so. Life often surprises you and you should always expect the unexpected. Hopefully it'll be a good surprise.

So thank you for reading. :) I hope you found something you liked and will remember. Now I wanna hear your favorite quotes and inspiring statements in the comments below! :)
