Where do your home decorating inspirations come from?
And my Design Inspirations, where do they come from?
My Simple Real Life Truth ~
Once on an interview I was asked, “Where do your design inspirations come from?” I quickly answered “from everything around me”.
Recently my Mother asked me how did you figure out that design?
I answered that I was watching a TV program and saw a wall treatment I liked and decided to tweak it to fit my project.
One day my husband and I were away on vacation and I was taking pictures of the elevator banks, he said, “what, the elevator banks” and I replied “let me show you all materials they’ve used to create the space, it’s amazing”.
So truly home decorating inspirations come from everything around me; from fashion or watching a television program, being on a beach vacation or walking in the City, shopping at a thrift store or at a boutique, going on a hike or taking a road trip there is beauty all around us.
So where do you find your home decorating inspirations?
My most recent inspiration came from a gift I received from my cousin, a summer beach bag.
This is the interesting part, the guest room design is an interpretation of the bag not at all literal, an emotional reaction to the beach bag that created the interior design plan.
Having the beach bag as my inspiration I updated my guest room by painting, upcycled an old dresser with a diy chalk paint technique added new Ikea drawer pulls and purchased a few new accessories from HomeGoods but mostly used what was already in the room.
Paint Color Benjamin Moore Constellation AF-540, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Coco, Ikea Drawer Pulls, HomeGoods Mirror.
My Tip ~
Since we all describe and see things differently through our unique experiences and reality
Communicating through images and samples are key in uncovering your true design vision for your home.
When you’re looking at images and immediately like something, save it then go back to your collection to see what the common thread is. It may be a paint color, a flooring style, a floor plan, the color palette or maybe just the overall design vibe.
