For Ideas & Inspiration, Look through home decorating magazines & books & see what inspires you & what things you respond to & resonate with you. Collect ideas you like about color combinations, furniture & fabrics.
Whether it’s your exquisite fine glassware or quirky pieces on dining room or kitchen shelving, or stacks of your books & souvenirs in the study or home office, show it off, arrange it with style. It will look great!
It’s best that you keep your walls subtle. It’s tasteful, understated & classical. These can be creams, pale yellows & greens, pale melon, or other pastels. Be sure you go for an off-white or cream & definitely avoid extreme stark bleached white (unless you want the antiseptic feel of medical rooms or a hospital).
