We all have a room in our house where we “do work.” Whether you work from home, answer emails, organize fundraisers for the PTA, or monitor your stocks and bonds, every family has a unique space designated for these things. For me, it’s my office. If my office is messy, cluttered, or smelling a bit like a stale locker room, I don’t much feel like working. Which is a big bummer because writing is how I get paid.
But, if my office is an inspiration, it’s amazing how much more inspired I am to write. Work actually becomes enjoyable. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Air Wick to help turn your unique workspace into your personal paradise!
I love visiting friends’ homes to see how their decor reflects their personalities and quirks. And have you noticed how each home you enter has a unique scent? The smells that fill your home reflect the mood of your home and the personalities that live in it. That means sometimes mine smells like stinky diapers and mac and cheese. No thank you.
Air Wick has unveiled the Scent Decorator, a cool tool that enables you to pair the perfect scent, and even home decor ideas, with the mood you want to portray in your home. It is amazing! Seriously, take two minutes and find your mood at the Air Wick’s Scent Decorator! My office could use a big mood makeover, so I took the test.
You start by selecting three beautiful photos that reflect your mood. My eye was immediately drawn to a tall glass of lemonade, a gorgeous white sandy beach, and a coastal cabana. Want to guess what my mood board was? Ahhh, yes…PARADISE. That’s exactly how I’d like my office space to feel!
So after seeing the Air Wick paradise home decor tips, I got to work making my office look like paradise. I added a little coastal vibe by hanging seashells that the kids collected on a recent trip to Florida, fresh flowers in tropical colors, and a spinning card rack filled with postcards of paradises all over the world.
Now that my office looked like paradise, it was time to smell like paradise. You guys. The Air Wick Life Scents Paradise Retreat room spray is heavenly. It doesn’t have a harsh, artificial smell. It smells like a frosty pina colada wafting on the breeze of your favorite beach.
It is calm, mellow, deliciously intoxicating, and takes me back to the first Caribbean cruise my husband and I ever went on. Air Wick has irresistible room sprays in unique scents to match your unique home. I have to say I love the Paradise Retreat room spray in my office, but the Life Scents Sunny Morning Linen room spray is my go-to scent to freshen the entire house. It smells like freshly done laundry and even if the baby just pooped, I can spray this and it acts in seconds. The fresh linen scent lasts up to an hour!
Ready to make your work space your personal paradise? Try these four tips!
4 Tips for Turning Your Workspace into Your Personal Paradise
1. Determine what your personal paradise looks, feels, and smells like.
Mine is a remote, tropical beach off the coast of Mexico where my husband and I went on our honeymoon. That will always feel like my personal paradise because life felt so free and easy-going there. Maybe your paradise is a remote Caribbean island…maybe it’s a gorgeous cabin in the mountains. Think about the place that brings you peace and joy.
2. Get the look.
Search for decor inspired by your personal paradise. I loved the tips I got from the Air Wick Scent Decorator. It recommended cool, coastal colors with calming blue hues, tropical photos and artwork, and quirky beach knickknacks. Your decor should be just as quirky as you are. It should celebrate your personality and be fun. It should make your work fun (kinda-sorta)!
3. Mirror the mood.
For my office to reflect a tropical paradise, I let in lots of light and have a small fan blowing a cool breeze. If you’re not sure what mood you’d like to convey, hop on over and create your mood at the Air Wick Scent Decorator. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
4. Capture the scent.
Most importantly, get the heavenly smell of your paradise. Air Wick room sprays will give you every essence of paradise with scents like Fresh Sparkling Waterfall, Paradise Retreat, and Seaside Escape. They are all calm, soothing, and propelled by 100% filtered air.
So celebrate the quirks of your home with eccentric decor (like porcelain pineapples, vintage soda bottles, colorful Tarot cards, or rhinestone photo frames) and an Air Wick fragrance that mirrors your personal paradise!
