With New York Fashion Week all wrapped up Trends for 2018 are on the horizon for both fashion + home decorating! And one thing is for certain … change is in the Fall air!
However, with all the information we have, the challenge is how to focus finding your own personal interior design style.
But the exciting thing about design today …
It’s personal, It’s global, It’s what makes you happy.
And, when I look at different palettes, I am reminded that there is so much beauty in the world to experience and incorporate in our daily life.
Furthermore, through technology we all have access to find just the right design element for our home. New companies offering beautiful products are popping up all the time broadening our ability to personalize our homes.
So how do we narrow down the influx of information to find our personal style???
5 ways to uncover your own personal home decorating style …
1. Find Images you like.
Collect images from magazines or internet sites that speak to you. Don’t analyze them just yet, save them in a folder. When you go back to look at them you will see a common theme. hummm looks like white paint is a repeated element.
2. Find Inspiration.
Inspiration will lead you to a color palette, a floor plan or accessorizing ideas.
Inspiration can come from anywhere … the beach, a hotel, a retail store, museum, traveling on vacation …
3. Have a Plan.
Devise a comprehensive plan first before purchasing products or choosing paint.
Keep an open mind, try to stretch yourself.
Let one decision fall into the next.
Don’t rush it, not even for an event … there will be another one.
4. What is your personal style …
It’s what you like.
You don’t have to find it you already have it.
Maybe you just need someone to help you get to it.
And Finally, Buy what you love.
Someone once told me to buy what I love and it will all work out.
It’s funny the things you remember but I reference this a lot … still.
But most of all …
Enjoy the process.
