Pick the room to work on & then get let’s get started. Take note of & work with your room’s focal point, Sometimes rooms have natural focal points - places where your eyes travel to immediately upon entering a room - a fireplace with mantle, an enormous ceiling high, wall-wide built-in bookcase, or bay window with a window seat or view of the garden, or over a valley, lake, or the sea.
Most importantly, the more your home decorating reflects who you are & the things you love, the longer you will be happy with it for an extended period of time, & the longer it will last. Remember that the more understated & elegant the interior the longer it will stand the test of time & last.
Remember, you’re developing your own style. Don’t be afraid to mix & match as long as there’s a unifying or integrating theme. Experiment with a mix & match interplay of colors & fabrics. Mix luxurious silks, soft & lush velvets, with more earthy rough textured cottons. Or whatever other fabric & color attracts & resonates with you.
