Decorating can be as easy....Start with the three things you need…Color, Style, and Formality.
Step 1~Color ~If you don’t already have a color scheme you love, find one in a book or magazine...A fun way to do this is to cut the pictures out and put them in a notebook or journel...
Review all the chooses you are attracted to and go with the one that draws you in the most... Still unsure? Pick your favorite color, plus white, never fail remedy I use on clients...
Step 2~Style...Name your style...This is an trick of mine...Maybe you know you love Country French,Farmhouse Style,or Shabby Chic. Or maybe you like a little of everything!
That’s ok, just make sure you give the room style a name that includes the feeling you want in the room....
For instance, I have a Rustic Farmhouse Cottage Kitchen. (I use rustic and farmhouse as a feeling as well as a visual clue!) Keep the feeling in the name, and you will pick the right style every time!
Finally, formality.... Know if you like a formal or informal room, formal being where things on both sides of the room match, or a more informal feel where you mix and match.
So my kitchen description would go something like this…I want an informal Rustic Farmhouse Cottage style kitchen full of creams, reds,blacks,greens and white. So every time I buy something, I know if it doesn’t fit in that description, it doesn’t fit period!
