With so many inspiring designs to explore, it can be hard to settle on just one style that’s ‘you’. But don’t worry! Finding the right look and feel you love for your home is possible. With some time dedicated to exploring your options (which starts now!), it’ll become easy-breezy in no time when creating the home of your dreams. Here are some tips for discovering your interior design style.
Look for inspiration
Pinterest is often our first step when gathering inspiration. But Pinterest can be overwhelming at times. If that’s the case, take out a magazine and start getting inspired. Flip through magazines to find what brings a smile to your face and tear out the pages that make you say, “yes please!” Once you have gathered up photos, study them and see if they share common elements that you could use in creating an aesthetic that is truly reflective of your personal style.
Check out your closet
If you’re in need of some home decor inspiration, look no further than your wardrobe. Take a closer peek at the colors and textures that make up your favorite outfits. Do neutral tones reign supreme? Injecting similar subtle shades into pieces around your house can bring about an airy ambiance. Or maybe vibrant hues light up each outfit – aim to spread out lively looks through different furnishings for maximum impact.
Look at what you already have
Take a tour of your house and jot down the pieces you adore in each room and take note of what could use an upgrade. Then stand back for some reflection: what do the items on your ‘love’ list have in common? Perhaps color palette patterns or specific materials can be identified. Take note of it all so the next time you go shopping for your home, you can use this list as inspiration. Once you know what works best with your home’s unique style, you’ll be able to find additional pieces that will fit right in.
Take an online quiz
Are you a fan of interior decorating but not sure what your style truly is? Take the guesswork out of decorating by taking a couple of fun online design quizzes. There are plenty of fun and helpful quizzes that can help point you in the right direction. These helpful tools will help you uncover and finalize the perfect style for your home. Don’t worry if they end in similar results – that means you’re on track with finding your signature look.
Make a fresh start with Discovery Homes
Decorating your home should be an enjoyable process that reflects who you are and what makes you feel most at ease. Although it can sometimes be tricky to put into words, take the time to explore different styles until something resonates with what works for your family and house. Don’t worry if finding a style doesn’t come naturally – just trust yourself in creating a space that is uniquely yours.
