I have been getting into design a lot lately. I am definitely a novice at best and love getting new ideas and tips on how I can make my home feel and look more cohesive. I know that I will always have some project in progress and my likes/dislikes will be constantly changing; but its good to have some basic strategy points to help guide the direction I take with any room design.
Right now, the two biggest things that have been inspiring me in terms of design have been The Nate Berkus Show and following a couple blogs that are speaking to me at the moment. Its been fun to implement some of the tips I have gleaned from these resources. Just recently on The Nate Berkus Show, he was talking about some questions to ask yourself when you are redesigning a space that I felt I should write down for future reference.
- What are your favorite colors?
- How do you want this space to feel when you walk into it?
- What words would you use to describe the feeling you want to invoke in that space?
These are all good tips when it comes to redesigning any space in your home. Lately I feel that having a concrete idea down on paper or even on a virtual pinboard is very helpful in seeing the end result. This helps keep everyone on track and most importantly, on budget.
What are some tips you have that help guide your remodel plans?
