A new year provides a blank canvas in need of a new design. For a simply stunning design project, begin by defining what inspires you. Home design inspiration can be found all over the web and in magazines. To find your own inspiration, pour through enough room scenes until you just can’t stand it any longer. Then, analyze and asses every single one of them in an effort to reveal the hidden design style within you. Ask yourself a few questions, what words would you use to describe your home the way it looks and feels today? What words would you use to describe your dream home?
If you are doing a big redesign project choose the three rooms you spend the most time in to tackle first.
Next, spend some time on Houzz.com. This website will help you to discover what kinds of styles can be mixed and matched and what color schemes you are drawn to.
Ask yourself questions such as, what wood finishes would work best for the furniture in your home?
What bright colors are you drawn to?
What kind of patterns do you like?
What style of sofas and chairs do you like?
What kind of light fixtures do you like?
Also ask yourself; What kind of storage do you need? What kind of artwork makes you feel good? What kind of window treatments do you need?
Once you have answered those questions, discover your almighty inspiration piece. It can be one of three things; a piece of art, a rug, or a fabric. If you don’t already have that piece in your home, visit my Houzz account at www.houzz.com/pro/darcy-k for 100s of my favorite pieces that I’m just dying to build a design plan around, (or already have.)
In Conclusion, take advantage of the blank canvas the new year has provided. Find out what inspires you and build off of your dreams. In order to begin your design project, make sure you start an idea book for each of your top 3 rooms on Houzz.com, answer the questions, and identify your almighty inspiration piece. And, if you find you need help along the way, Darcy K. is here to help you with this process and assist in all of your design needs.
