Regardless of your current living situation, I think we can all create a place that we will love to call home. I think the key is knowing your own personal design style, and incorporating as many of these elements into your living spaces as you can.
By deciding to define your interior design style. I don’t mean taking a quiz on one of the many interior design websites that will pigeon hole you into one prescribed look, with a fancy name. Or, picking up the latest design magazine and choosing the first design look that has some elements that you like, and think you must adhere to all those design elements.
I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with design websites or magazines, to provide a platform for you to discover your own design style. When doing so. Please be aware that it’s so easy to get swept up in the perfection of these staged homes. Then, get disheartened when you cannot create the exact same look in your place.
I think the best place to start your journey is where you live. Taking the time to have a closer look at the things you live amongst. Will help you define your design style.
Now, it’s time to switch off from the here and now for a bit and allow your mind to travel to those places that you love & ask yourself why you love them?
The next stop on your dream liner is to your dream home in it’s perfect location. What is it that makes them so perfect?
For those of you that think this process is a bit woo woo and far removed from the harsh reality of your abode. Well, that is exactly the whole point of this exercise. Allowing yourself to dream without limitations, provides the space for you to go beyond your current lifestyle and budget and discover what makes you sparkle.
