Five Quick Steps to Help Get Your Design Project Started


Are you ready to refresh your home? Starting a new project can be intimidating so here are a few quick steps to get you started.

Step One: Know your personal style. Are there colors you gravitate towards? Are you a minimalist or do you find that the right amount of accessories bring your space together? Have you seen a photo that inspires you?

Step Two: Determine what stays. Bring a photo or a sample of these important items to your design consultant.  New things do not have to match but they do need to work together. A designer can help you navigate what will work.

Step Three: Know how you want to use the space. Is this a quiet reading room? Or a high traffic area with kids, dogs, and guests?

Step Four: Find one thing you love that can be a focal point for the design. Whether it is a family heirloom or a new rug, having a jumping off point for colors and layouts will help get the ball rolling.

Step Five: Complete the look. Don’t forget wall art and accessories. It is the little things that really tie the room together.

As you start the design process, remember that designers are here to bring your vision for your home to life. They can make the process of transforming your space enjoyable.
