Whether you are designing an empty home or redecorating the interior of your house, the entire process can feel overwhelming at times. Just think that there are hundreds of colors, fabrics, and patterns out there, and you have to select the right one for your home. To help, we are going to discuss how you can narrow down your options by developing your unique decorating style. Let’s take a look!
Take Our Style Quiz
Determining your unique design personality is not the easiest thing in the world. Taking a style quiz can help give you some insight. To help, we have a “design resources” section on our website that will guide you through the process of determining your style. You can find our style quiz here.
Look for Some Inspiration
Popular social communities such as Pinterest and Instagram can offer great design inspiration. Traditional design magazines can also be a source of inspiration. Create a Pinterest board of all the interior spaces that really caught your eye. You should be able to see similarities or a common theme among all the photos that you have pinned, and this will tell a lot about your specific style. Also, be sure to follow us on Pinterest for design and lifestyle inspiration.
Consider the Mood
How do you want your home to feel when you walk into the door? This approach allows you to work your way back. When you think about what kind of mood you would like to set, imagine the type of furnishing, textures, colors, and accessories you would use to create that mood.
What are some of the things you have loved since childhood? Perhaps it is a specific color, or maybe it is a theme or material-these are elements that define a part of you and should, therefore, be included in the design scheme of your home.
Finally, do not be afraid to take risks. Is there a design style that you have always wanted to try, but you are afraid that it may not look right or be difficult to pull off? Do not let fear stop you. Gather your inspiration and shoot for the moon!
