Step 2: Choose Your Theme

Here’s a few questions to get your creative mind going…

  1. What’s your favorite hobby or leisure activity?
  2. What highlights your personality?
  3. How do you like to unwind?

  • reading
  • DIY crafts
  • knitting
  • yoga
  • painting
  • pottery
  • etc.

Eventually, we landed on building a little reading nook.
