Designing your home should be a fun and creative process! I'm breaking down my process to help you design the home of your dreams.
1. Determine your style
Whether that means spending hours on Pinterest, weeks of reading Domino.com or months of reading Architectural Digest, figure out what makes you excited in design and that is your starting point.
2. Choose a focal point
What part of the space do you want to highlight? Design around that focal point and move outward from there.
3. Room layout
Position your furniture around your focal point. Figure out what furniture you need to complete the look.
4. Select a color scheme
How do you want the room to feel - warm and cozy or cool and sleek? Choose colors around that vibe. Think about the walls, trim, upholstery and accessories. Do you go neutral with a few color accents? Or bold colored walls with coordinating furniture.
5. Pick your patterns
I love this part of the process. Mix large scale with small scale. Mix stripes with florals. If you're a minimalist, mix textures to give visual interest. This part of the process adds warmth and texture.
Add all the details that pull the space together! What are you missing to really bring the space to life? Work on your shelfie game and style your coffee table. Add greenery (linked here if you need some tips) and lighting that will really wow.
