Decorating: Where do you start?

Where do you start? It’s easy. Find an inspiration piece. Mine was a 25$ piece of art. Yours could be a cool chair you find at a thrift store, a rug your great Auntie Linda gives you, a fabric swatch, a cool plate, toss pillow etc. Look at the picture above. There are a handful of objects in this room that could serve as an inspiration piece! It’s helpful if your inspiration piece has a couple of different colors incorporated into it. Make sure you like the colors because BAM! You’ve automatically got the color scheme for that room. That was easy!
Find an inspiration piece for each room in your home and you will be surprised at how easy it will become to put together the rest of the room. (A shower curtain in the bathroom, a pillow for the master bedroom, hand towels for the kitchen = inspiration pieces. Let the little things inspire you)
Don’t be afraid of color. Color can make a big difference in any space.
Don’t use big prints in small spaces. Big prints become overwhelming and because most of our first homes and apartments are small, we want to avoid this. Life is hectic enough already girls, let’s not let the crazy into our homes!
