Here are some guideline pointers – decide which you feel most comfortable following. If you’re just starting out, you may want to work with just one paint color on the walls throughout your home. You can always build on that later. Better to take it gradually, than to feel that you’ve overstepped the mark & don’t like it, can’t live with it, & have to redo it.
Equally, mix & match your sofas, armchairs & single chairs. This is what gives your home decorating its individuality. There is no one else like you!.
Or, if you feel drawn to start with another room, perhaps your sun room or child’s room, then follow your instincts & preference. It’s important that you don’t feel overwhelmed. Start small if you feel more comfortable. Feeling overwhelmed will most likely block you & you won’t move forward.
You can use these focal points around which to build your home decorating ideas & themes. If your room doesn't have a natural focal point, you can easily create one with a dynamic piece of art or a colorful area rug. More on this later.
