Manifesting With An Interior Design Vision Board

There’s something so inspiring about planning out what you want your life to look like. After talking with a business coach, one of the things she suggested I do was create a vision board of my future office. At first I was skeptical.

How would envisioning my future office space help me exactly?

 

It may seem silly to plan for a space you may never have. But her insight into this practice sort of made sense. She said that by planning out what you want your future to look like, you’ll be more motivated to achieve it. I agree. But I also have my reservations about “manifesting”, which is what this sounded like.

However my coach assures me that it’s not any of that “woo woo” stuff. It’s about forcing myself to really look at what I want and what it will take to get there. I have created mood boards before (tutorial here) but never a vision board.

So today she encouraged me to be open and honest about what I want. I thought I would share it with you too.

What I Want: I want The Petite Bijou to be more than just a blog. I want it to become a lifestyle brand. I want to create products and accessories that women will love like jewelry, purses, clothing, and beauty products. I want to have an office that oozes of history, art, and feels like it came from a different part of the world.

Below is my inspiration for a future office space. What do you think?

Room by Room

My digital communications company is called Bijou Social, and would also be housed here. I would offer my marking and communications services and have a small team helping me out.

When I envision my future office space, I think of a town home (who knows where) with the first floor being a reception area for guests. We would offer them drinks to walk around with and yummy homemade desserts. The space with the couches and fireplace would be a great spot to chat over coffee.

The second room I imagine would be a beauty room where beauty and makeup products would be shelved for use. Whether that’s photographing them for brands or simply just displaying my collection. Adjacent to that would be the closet where we keep clothing and accessories.

Another room I envision is a meeting room contains a white marble table, black cabinets, and pink chairs.

Oh, and we can’t possibly forget bar carts stocked with sparkling water and coffee!

 

Furniture and Decor Must Haves

Who doesn’t like looking at furniture? Here are some of the furniture and decor pieces I would have in my office. Just click on the black button on or near the item to view product details.

 

 

SHOP THE PRODUCTS

 

Le Vie Ballet Prints: This adorable trio canvas print would look stunning in a dressing room that has an old world vibe to it. The parchment makes the print organic and not very “showy”, which would accentuate fabrics that are hanging. This would look lovely with a wooden room divider for a very rustic french look.

Marble & Antique Frame Coffee Table: Perfect for a chic and sophisticated living or meeting room. I love marble but I do like a metal frame to contrast it. Add some magazines, books, flowers, and candles for a cozy aesthetic. I would definitely add a small sculpture or this cute crown catch all to this table.

Black Display Cabinet: I love contrast and this display cabinet is a lovely modern touch to a historical setting. I envision having this cabinet filled with antiques and in a room that had pastels. Definitely want it to look like the inspiration photo I attached.

Glass Shadow Box: I actually have one of these and it’s a lovely place to store sunglasses, jewelry, and makeup. I would definitely have these ALL OVER the Petite Bijou office. The best part is that this is only $29, so I can start buying them now haha!

Mid Century Velvet Dining Chair: A gorgeous chair for either office or dining spaces. I envision these chairs around a white marble or black marble circle table. Add a bouquet of roses on top!

Venice Chandelier: This chandelier in every room, because, why not? It’s chic but simple, just how I like it!

 

So I hope this activity helps me strive towards my goals. Actually sharing this with you was a bit different for me. I honestly haven’t told anyone of my plans for the blog and my brand, just because it is a really bold statement to make. When I have told people, they usually don’t think I’ll do it.

And to be honest, I don’t know if I will…but I have ambition. I’ve always wanted an office space. And I’ve always wanted to be my own boss.

I hope putting this vision out there will help me manifest this dream of mine. Having a vision board like this is a very helpful activity for imagining your true goals and dreams.

  • LAUNCHED AND LIVE: the new Petite Bijou logo created by the very talented designer @desnoir
-
I knew from the very start I wanted The Petite Bijou logo designed by Alaura. When I put together my first mood board, one of her logos caught my eye and I knew right away that Alaura was meant to bring my vision to life. A vision of a brand that resonated with the classically inspired woman.
-
That was over a year ago. At the time, I didn't have a single penny to put towards my brand. But I knew it that a year from then, I would have the perfect logo.
-
I built my mood board, looked at it everyday, and put every single dollar I earned from brand collaborations, affiliate sales, and advertising back into my brand. I started a new business just to fund my passion. I took on too many clients and burned myself out.
-
A year later. I'm proud to say this blog isn't just a blog, but a brand that has brought an amazing community together. I hired my first assistant, redesigned the site, and found Alaura. And I'm happy to say that we've now added a contributing writer to the site - one of my very own readers who felt aligned with The Petite Bijou mission of providing wholesome yet sophisticated life and styling tips to women.
-
I never intended this website to just be about me and my outfits. I want to share actual tips, reviews, and interesting editorial pieces. And the biggest motivation for me right now is hearing someone say "that's so Bijou" to me when they see something that would be a part of the brand that is elegant, sophisticated, and beautiful. You have no idea how amazing that is to hear! 😍
-
I have to thank @desnoir for making my dream brand a reality with a stunning logo that is SO BIJOU.
-
Here is the brand mantra that inspired it all: {Classic Elegance Simple Femininity, Intellectual Truths, Inspirational Mindsets}

Whatever traditional stereotypes you have about how French women dress, throw them out. Because they certainly don't all walk around Paris with striped shirts and red berets (great style staples, but not a must). Today on ThePetiteBijou.com, I am sharing 5 fashion faux pas French women avoid. Click the link in my bio to read the post.
-
At the heart of it, French women don't dress to "look" a certain way. It's all about having a wardrobe that fits their lifestyle, something we can learn from greatly. And while the outfit you see before you may be considered traditionally French, it is only one type of style choice that has become the epitome of The Parisienne...
