Where to start?
Good design often begins with a healthy dose of daydreaming. But how do you make your vision a reality? Starting is often the hardest part. Here’s a few tips to bring your new space to life:
Start with what you know
If you’re not planning to redo the entire space, list out what you know is staying like the paint color or key furniture. Building off of an existing color or design scheme can be the helpful jump-start you need.
Let Pinspiration be your guide
Chances are, you’re one of the 450 million monthly users on Pinterest making boards for just about everything that interests you. Try uploading a photo from a favorite Pin to a design board for inspiration.
Consider Hiring a Professional
If you’re in over your head, you may need the help of a professional interior designer. Many home resource retailers offer design services free of charge, so be sure to check with them first.
Share your mood board
When shopping for your new space, bring your mood board complete with your fabric, paint chips and other inspiration with you to help quickly communicate your design vision. It will help you and the in-store sales associate narrow down choices to find the best aesthetic and hue, so you get to your dream floor faster.
