Some people seem to have a natural eye for design and always seem to have great ideas interior design. I’m not one of those people. Only a week I was setting up a new office and are looking for a nice accent piece. At the store I came up with a combination of items that I liked, and then decided to ask one employee to a second opinion. My idea was shot down as combining different styles. So I seek another opinion, and got the same answer. I asked myself, “If I like it, is not that good enough?” Maybe for an eclectic and personal space, but for a business office, it is not good enough. The interior design should make a statement, and “I do not think so” is not what I would share.
So I started doing some research for interior design ideas, and I learned a lot. Here are four tips that I found useful, and if you are a beginner design, hopefully you will too.
1. It’s ok to copy ideas from anywhere you can find them. Your friend might not naturally be a great designer, but when he saw the HGTV enough, he might have become one over time. If he has a room that you like, feel free to copy, a replacement, your own taste. Watch shows the house a few decorations, and read magazines, you’ll soon have a lot of interior design ideas from which to choose. Take ideas from anywhere you can get them, and then tweak them to make their own.2. Look at your living space and keep only what you really love. If you do not like something, or do not care if it’s there, get rid of it! Either throw it away, donate it to charity, or the box if you have family values. Just because it was originally owned by Great Aunt Delilah, does not mean you have to show them. You still can save it to hand to the next generation, or hand over to someone else in the family.
