I have had “convert my den into a writing and yoga space” on my home to do list for a while now. My den has no window so the space is quite dark. I re-painted it last fall so it’s a lot brighter than before. I started with one red wall and 3 brown walls (as seen below) so anything lighter was an improvement. It is now beige and where the red wall is I painted it a light blue. I am actually giving away my childhood desk as I want a smaller one for writing the book I’m working on. I also want to figure out how to make it a space that I can practice yoga in and meditate. Hopefully I’ll be inspired to do a post with after pictures soon once I get my decorating act together.
When Leon’s invited me to the Find Your Zen event I got really excited as it was a perfect opportunity to take advantage of free yoga classes to de-stress from a month of racing (I have 3 races in June) and get some feng shui advice for my den.
Where: Leon’s Roundhouse 255 Bremner Boulevard, Toronto (across the street from the Roger’s Centre)
