Finding The Decor Inspiration You Crave

If you’re still developing your personal style, it’s always helpful to have someone to show you the way. Similarly, if you’re looking for a change but you’re not really certain of which direction you want to take it in, inspiration can act as your compass. Here, we’re going to look…

Read the literature If you’re hoping to make major changes or renovations, then take a step back and be willing to spend enough time getting a good look at the different trends and styles out there. Interior design books can be a fantastic source of inspiration, from the latest hot tips to newer takes on more traditional and well-established styles. If you have some idea of what direction you want to go, but not how to get there, that can help you get more specific with your choices. For instance, Bright Bazaar is a great read for anyone who knows that they want a light, exciting, and summery home. Get online The online world is a whirling pool of all kinds of different ideas and, while it can be difficult to navigate, it can be rewarding to find those few people who really “get” you and your design sensibilities. The best place to start off is in following some of the best known and loved interior Instagram accounts out there. Professional designers and renovators are all on there, looking to give their tastes a platform, and following people like Ryan Korban and Paloma Contreras is certain to give you some ideas to chew on. Venture to the right stores Looking at pictures in a magazine or online can only do so much. If you want an idea of how certain pieces are going to fit within your space or you want to know how the feel, not just how they look, you have to get up close and personal. Venture to places like Montgomerys Furniture and spend some time in a few showrooms. Few places give you a better opportunity to really experience what a style going to feel like when it’s fully incorporated. Use what you got Perhaps you already have a piece in mind or a focal point that you can build from. If that’s the place, it’s all about choosing to match. When coming up with a palette for the room, for instance, consider using apps like Behr Colorsmart. It can take the colors you are already incorporating in the room and help build a palette that helps you choose colors for the walls and other pieces of furniture, giving you some more direction to keep following. When you’re stuck with nowhere to go in terms of interior design, then hopefully the tips above can light the spark that really gets those gears turning. As soon as you get a whiff of inspiration and find one piece or element you want to include, it’s much easier for the rest of your choices to simply fall into place.
