Decorating – Where does one begin?

Good day!  This week I wanted to write about a topic that would help you get started on your decorating project.  The start of any project can be daunting so this is where inspirational themes and design concepts come in.  Once you figure out what your design concept is, you are off to the races.  Without one you may be setting yourself up for a lot of frustration.

A design concept is the foundation for all of your design decisions.  It lays the groundwork for style, colour, and layout.  Think of your favourite past time.  What do you love and what are you passionate about?  What great experiences have you had that contribute to who you are?  Fashion, music, dining, art, travel…these are some of mine.  Pick one and hone in on the details of your theme.  For example, travelling overseas might be one of your great passions.  If you are inspired by remote and adventurous destinations, an interior decorating scheme might encompass exotic patterns, textures and colours.  Selecting some of your furniture and accessories along this concept line would also help you pull it together.  Of course not every little piece has to be within this theme but a few items and colours here and there create that feel.

Below are some of my design boards to give you an idea of what a design concept would entail.




Design boards are a great starting point for your project and really fun to do if you have the time to devote to it!

Happy weekend!
