How to Find Your Inspiration

Are you feeling stuck in making decorating decisions that you don't know where to start? Being inspired can be the beginning to developing a beautiful design. You have to start somewhere, right? But where do you start? Where do you draw inspiration from? What if you're not inspired by anything? That can be frustrating! Here are some ideas to think about when looking for an inspiration.

Use the Architectural Details of your Home.

Architecture-Styles

Use the style of your home as an inspiration of your decor style. For example, if you live in a colonial house (like the example above) consider the use of the traditional accents as a place to start. 

Start a Collection of Photos

Here are some key points to ask yourself when browsing through photos.

What do I like about this picture?
(e.i. the furniture placement, the colors, the style, the lighting, the pops of color)
How does this picture make me feel?

Choose the Style of Furniture You Like

Have you ever walked into a furniture store and said to yourself "nice chair" or "I really like that table" but don't know what it is that you like about it? It's okay! Sometimes we just see things that we like and can't explain why. It happens to me all the time. Find the common denominator from all the items that you like and you're sure to find your inspiration.
