Home Interior Decorating
By Cyn Sullivan
You want to make plans for a home interior decorating project. First of all, write down your goals and several ideas. Consider many details to work out: the theme or style of the room or area for your project, materials and costs will be a part of this. Realistically consider how you can budget wisely.
Plan a home interior decorating project that fits your budget. Look at all of the details involved: materials, manpower, accessories and unforeseen costs that seemingly jump out at you, for no apparent reason. Your realistic budget should always be the first and foremost consideration.
Choose a style or theme for your home interior decorating project. There are so many to choose from and the decision should be made based on your likes and interests. Country decorating provides a sense of warmth and coziness. A modern theme can have a clean, uncluttered look, an alive and yet minimal feel. A classic, eclectic or traditional style can be in vogue for many decades. You will be living with this style for some time, so consider how you want to feel when you come home and spend time in this type of environment.
After making a final decision about your decorating theme, sketch your plan on paper. Draw a diagram of the area you want to decorate. Consider the size of the room and scale of each piece of furniture and object that will be placed in it. Arrange everything on paper. Sit in a comfortable position with eyes closed after lighting some aromatherapy candles and playing relaxing music. Visualize this space filled with joy, see everything that you wish to decorate with and how it will augment your lifestyle, your goals. Perhaps through deep contemplation you will find there is a different style that is better suited for you at this particular place in time.
Imagination and intuition are two helpful assets in home interior decorating. Tap into your own creative abilities. Begin your project with an open mind, if a different wall color seems right, just go with it. It is progress in the making, let your inner creative spirit guide you, intuitively. Often times it’s those off the wall ideas that make a space look astonishing. Remember it's your space, fill it with what you love, what is functional and yet beautiful to you.
You can find many helpful home interior decorating tips in decorating, country, modern life or traditional living magazines. Look at books to inspire ideas, browse the internet, come up with what is perfect for you and your lifestyle needs. Make this a joyous occasion, visualize an abundant and fulfilled future self. This should never be a project filled with stress. Enjoy your home interior decorating accomplishments.
