Interior Design is a wonderful thing, it brings beauty and personality to your space and that brings joy to every moment!
The first time that I really started to think about decorating a space was my room at college (my mother always hired an interior designer to decorate my room growing up). I was excited and nervous – about going to college and designing my room! The formula was, and still to this day is, buy what speaks to me. At that time , it was string lights to hang around the ceiling and a pink comforter from Victoria’s Secret. My style has evolved since then, but I think that is perfect for what I was at the time (I might dust that stuff off if I have a girl in college later).
I think the key is not to try and complete your room at once. There are so many components that go into designing a room. If you buy something just to fit into the space, and you don’t love it, you will end up getting rid of it and buying something new (and possibly reading a minimalism book one day).
Start small if you haven’t designed a room before so you don’t feel overwhelmed. Remember there are no wrong choices – yes you can make a bad choice, but give yourself that freedom. Stress can choke your creative freedom which will inhibit this process!
Have fun with it! I find that our most satisfying rooms were the ones that started off the ugliest. Maybe that is a good place to start…..
