Ylva Skarp has motivational quotes in her beautiful script throughout her home in Sweden. From “You Are Like No Other” to “Creativity,” simply turning your head can feel like getting a pep talk from your best friend.

Bring the positive vibes into your own home by displaying a motivational poster. Just please, no images of puppies falling with the word ‘determination’ underneath; pick an image that is inspiring on its own, even before you read the message. Whether you go for something slightly whimsical or something that’s all “go-get-it-girl,” pick a saying that makes you want to get working – grab your washi tape/a gold binder clip/ a vintage frame, and hop to.
