Here at Homecolours we strongly believe that enjoying some kind of creative hobby is a brilliant method of engaging with artistry and imagination. There are countless ways to get creative at home, but it isn't always easy to find the time, space and motivation. Thankfully, there are lots of smart products available that can lend a helping hand with inspiration and practice.
Here are a few of the ways to get creative that can be helped out by using the best in smart design.
Writers can work anywhere, which is just one of the reasons that makes it such an attractive pursuit for many people. Expressing yourself creatively with words has all sorts of benefits, from spending time thinking things over imaginatively to the process of editing and restructuring thoughts and ideas. No matter how and why you write, the home can be well kitted out for such wordy activity.
The Write On Pen Set, Garden Party from Ban.do is a lovely set for jotting down thoughts and ideas. Comprising of three gorgeously designed ballpoint pens, the collection can serve as a wonderful starting point for producing notes for your latest poem, story or essay.
Drawing and Illustration
Drawing pictures and using paints to pass the time isn't strictly a concern for the kids. Anyone can benefit from applying creative designs and imaginatively constructed images on paper and page. Either by using digital tech on computers and tablets, or the more classic way of using pencils, pens and brushes, painting and drawing is a valuable way to relax and enjoy life.
Colouring in using coloured pencils and one of those ever popular colouring-in books is a lovely way to relax in a creative way. Alternative, you could draw your own shapes and ideas and mold the forms however you like! The above Baker's Dozen Colouring Pencils by Ted Baker offers a fine set of colouring pencils up for any artistic task.
Thinking carefully about the organisation and layout of the home itself is also a great way to get creative. Regularly updating the look and feel of the home can be done in many ways, but taking the time to consider the mood, ambiance and feel of the place is integral. Elements such as the colour of the decorations, the types of materials used in furnishings, and the overall style and look of the place all play a part in how creative decisions have an ultimate bearing on how a home looks.
Lighting products can alter the look of an interior dramatically. Light shades such as the glamourously evocative Aluvia Mini Light Shade from Umage is capable of changing the whole mood and style of a room. The multi-functional and uniquely design light shade is certainly a great item for expressing a creative sensibility.
