When someone is new to interior design they will often feel intimidated by the enormous amount of information out there for beginners. I think it’s all of the rules that apply to different aspects of decorating, because one wrong move can make the entire ensemble fall apart. To tackle the anxiety you may be feeling about the subject, you just need to break everything down into bite-sized pieces of information.
When you’ve decided the space you live in needs revamping, take a look around. Familiarize yourself with it, and then take into consideration the tips I am about to lay out for you. Absorb them, mull them over, take a tea break with some sandwiches, FoxyBingo or television, and then get to work planning the room.
What you like
Point out all of the things about the current interior design that you love, and would like to keep. Doing so will make it easy for you to let the less appealing designs go. With that sorted, pick up some decorating magazines and look online for pieces of furniture, colours and fabrics which would suit what you want.
With so many colours to choose from, how easy do you find it to pick a colour? Not very I imagine. The trick is to limit yourself to three colours. They need to work well with the wood tones of your furniture or floor and the natural light which filters into the room. Think about which parts of the room could use a splash of colour and look at show rooms in design magazines for inspiration.
Get rid of all the aspects you hate. This includes furniture, accessories, curtains, fixings, carpets – anything you are not attached to and can live without ever seeing again. Keeping things you don’t need will only clutter the room, and if it’s a small room, can you really afford to have clunky furniture in there? Sometimes it’s better to say goodbye.
