TELL ME…

1. Are you working from a home workspace that aligns with your business goals and brand?

2. Work from a space that’s representative of your hard work, success, plans for growth?

3. Feel happy and proud of your workspace and love what you see when you look around?

IF YOU ANSWERED NO TO THESE QUESTIONS, DON’T BEAT YOURSELF UP!

When we decide to work for ourselves to carve out our new business ideas, we generally take over a spare bedroom, a small nook in the corner of the house or a bland little office space.

You get on with the job of building your business and your brand, but you don’t really take care of your working environment. Papers are left to pile up, it doubles as a junk-dumping space, it is bland central station in fact, because you’ve been putting all your energy into bringing in the income and paying the bills and not paying any attention to your environment.

I KNOW THAT SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TOO MUCH ON YOUR PLATE AND A LOVELY WORKSPACE HASN’T BEEN A PRIORITY.

With the…VIP WORKSPACE DESIGN ADVISORY PACKAGE

You’ll Feel:

SUPPORTED in designing your fresh and beautiful workspace.

CALM & FOCUSED working in your perfectly organised space.

EXCITED & ENERGISED in your entrepreneurial endeavours.

HAPPY & PRODUCTIVE creating in a workspace perfect for your personality.

For 18 years, I had been working for many clients doing everything from designing gardens, to renovation planning for to interior selections, to styling homes and was trying to be everything to everyone. On top of this, I was raising my three children and worked in education and various other various part-time jobs to cover household expenses, school fees, and a mortgage. I loved what I was doing but I was running myself ragged trying to do so much and juggle a family too.

I started moving in circles of female entrepreneurs, signing up for high-end programs to improve my business skills and focus wholeheartedly on creating a business that I was really excited and passionate about. What I found out during this time is that what I love most was working and talking with other women in business who are striving to do exactly the same thing as me…to create a business and a life that they love….on their terms.

It was then that the penny dropped and I knew I could help them, as many of them were working from home or a little office somewhere outside the house, but many reported that their workspace was a shambles, less than ideal and not really making them feel happy or successful. I love my little office space and whilst I get sick of being in it some days….tap,tap tapping away on the computer, I felt a sense of peace and joy being in it but there were times I felt a little stuck knowing just how to make the most of my small space and make it a reflection of my personality. When I looked around I saw a creative, organised space and it made me feel really lucky to be working from home. But I knew this was uncommon and that the spare room with its beige walls, mismatched furniture and hodge- podge style was more the norm. Another thing that I knew for sure was that a disorganised, soulless space is not at all conducive to creating a thriving business and a happy you. I knew how important it was to get it right.

SO I DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT

 

I CREATED THE VIP WORKSPACE DESIGN FOR YOU PACKAGE

1. I was excited that I could help fellow entrepreneurial women to feel better in their workspace.
2. I knew I would be working with “my tribe” and could make meaningful connections.
3. I believed that I had what it took to help them gain clarity and vision for their new workspace.

You'll have a space that looks like a reflection of success or dreams for the future.

It’s one thing to have good ideas and super taste, but making those ideas actually translate to a completed project is another thing altogether. Designing a beautiful space is more than having a few (or truckloads) of pretty pictures, it’s about the process of making it happen step-by-step in exactly the right order. I’m an expert at getting your design ideas in order, adding in some exciting new ones (oooohhh) and getting you to actually make it happen without all the “I’m too busy” or “I don’t know how excuses.”

You'll have a stylish place to work and create...that environment makes you feel great inside.

You will end up with a stylish space that is a perfect match for you and your business. Don’t be afraid my dear. I’m not going to be throwing my hands around, shouting instructions and taking over to create what I want. It’s going to be all about you and it’s going to be a calm and enjoyable experience and one you can tackle at your own pace. See…nothing to be scared of here.

You'll have a space that reflects your personality.

I totally understand why. You probably have a picture in your head but not a real plan of how to make that happen. I know you can get really confused about your style, what colours to use, how to layout our room, what to buy and on it goes.

So the confusion wins and you throw in the towel…either nothing changes or you don’t like what you’ve done. It stays as it is and days turn into months and months into years.

Your workspace will make you happy and envigorated which is great for your well being.

Entrepreneurial Woman?

Working in a really beautiful workspace is not just something you can see in Elle Magazine. If you want to have a business that you love and a brand that you’re proud of, you need to hang out in spaces that are actually creative. Sound simple enough right? Your fresh set of eyes is right here. I’ll make it that much better. And that much better means that much more beautiful, organized, creative and productive. My Workspace Room Revivals are like taking a holiday in the Maldives: they refresh your mind and soul, remove the stress factors, inject some real life, and align with your personality and vision. No I don’t have a magic wand or a genie bottle (but would love one) but you and I are a bit like Alice….wildly curious and on an adventure to create something we love and are proud of. The Workspace Rapid Room Rescue may be the perfect solution for you.

Choosing the right things...not spending money on the wrong things is good for your finances.

Together we’ll  find your perfect style that speaks about who you are and shines a light on the woman you are and want to be. Plus, even if you can only make the smallest of changes every now and again, each step in the right direction is a good one….you just need to know what path you’re on.

A happy workspace means a satisfied you...that's good for relationships.

I understand. People throw that stuff out there all the time…It’s just an office, it’s just a house, it’s only material possessions, it’s just stuff. Yep…beyond a certain point I agree, but if deep down your spaces make you unhappy, you feel ashamed, embarrassed, stressed? Ha! Then that’s a different matter, isn’t it?

YOU KNOW YOU DESERVE A BEAUTIFUL SPACE TO WORK IN. YOU’VE THOUGHT ABOUT IT OFTEN ENOUGH BUT NEVER QUITE GOT AROUND TO MAKING IT HAPPEN. BETWEEN THAT TO-DO LIST AND THAT SKYPE CALL YOU’VE NEVER MADE IT A PRIORITY. BUT THIS IS POSSIBLE FOR YOU AND THERE’S GOOD NEWS.

2I’ve got a simple solution to creating a workspace where you’ll feel invigorated and happy to dive into that next project.

1Choose the right colours to suit your style and personality. Maybe colour branding to suit your business?

You’ll know exactly the right style, look and feel you should aim for and all the details you need to make it happen.

I will guide you through the decisions and show you exactly how to make your space come together.

No more confusion…I am here to help with those tricky design questions plus you’ll be so much clearer on your direction.

Carmen has the perfect combination of creativity

She offers practical advice and flair when it comes to helping with my work spaces. Carmen recently helped us design a beautiful built in work space for our 1930s home – her suggestions and designs were fantastic she really helped us maximise the use of space and avoid making decisions with restricted layout options. It is such a delightful space to work from and such a joy to work in. I highly recommend Carmen for the design of your workspace.

Anastasia

Carmen’s enthusiasm for what she does is contagious.

Carmen was always confident in the guidance and expertise she offered me, her attention to detail, her respect for my time and budget and her skilled awareness in getting the best possible outcome for me and my workspace. I am lucky to have met someone as lovely and professional as Carmen and look forward to using her for other home design projects.

MEET CARMEN

Through personally working with many women on their home renovations, designs, decorating and styling projects I have a vast array of experiences in design. Running my own home and garden design business for the last 15 years made me realise that I had a formula that I had developed for myself and I realised that I can show you how to do that too. 

My background in education has been an invaluable part of breaking tasks down for women so that they can manage a small chunk at a time in their really busy lives. This has been a winning formula for me.  I know that women get so stuck trying to design on their own and they often need a sounding board, but not necessarily someone taking over or putting unnecessary pressure put on them. 

I have worked on a huge variety of design projects in my career, but quite simply what I love to do best is help women in business create a home and lifestyle that they love.

I believe that this package has everything you need to create a gorgeous wokrspace of your own. There’s me guiding you step by step guides and my very best creative ideas, moodboards and checklists all done for you. It’s a super way to get more help for way less cost than traditional designer services. 

Just in case you’re not sure, let’s have a quick chat before we get started,

that way we’re both on the same page.

I like to call it my Project Design Powwow!

I was floundering and idea-less 

until Carmen lit the spark with her suggestions for how to progress. She nurtured rather than directed me throughout and lead me along the journey to a finished space. A big thank you, Carmen, for all your help.

Fran

Carmen really had a vision for what my workspace could be

Believe me that the changes would be for the better. I give credit where credit is due because she showed me how I could transform my space into something way greater than we could ever have dreamed of.
