How To Start A New Decorating Project!
First, Discover Your Decorating Style
Modern - A modern decorating style is well-tailored and features clean lines. Wood and earth tones add a softer feel to the clean straight lines. Mid-century modern sofas or elements are popular.
Transitional - A transitional style goes with most home architectural styles. The look is a hybrid of modern and traditional — perfect for updating older home styles like colonial or Victorian, or warming up a new-construction home.
Tradition - It's a timeless style that exemplifies elegance and comfort. Traditional decorating is perfect for those who love antiques, classic art pieces, symmetry and other design elements that are rich with history.
Contemporary - Contemporary design is the most sparse and minimalist of the design styles. Few pieces are used in each room. Color selection is normally pared down to black, white or grey with primary color accents. Metals and glass, instead of wood, are featured.
Next, Develop A Decorating Plan
If you working on more than one room at a time prioritize what rooms are most important to you and make a decorating plan, one room at a time! A good rule of thumb is start with the room you spend the most time in.
Matching all the rooms in the house is a design myth. If you decide you want a transitional bedroom but a modern living room, go for it! Your home will have far more personality when you decorate from scratch, one room at a time. Just be sure to add a unifying element to all the rooms for flow, like a certain color, or a decor item in the home’s architectural design style.
