Commit to a Design and Love it

Has this happened to you? You have an idea of how you would like your home to look. However, you can’t commit to a design style you love? You start looking at Pinterest, shopping, and you find images and things you love. Great, but then self-doubt pops into your head and you say to yourself “maybe I should keep looking”. You travel to several more stores, shops, and even look online. Always comparing or buying things you don’t like and then getting overwhelmed. For some people, thinking about all the details in a project can stop them from moving forward with their design.

Trust the Design and Commit to a Look You will Love

As an interior design professional, we are surrounded by new styles and designs. The key to pinpointing your design look is to commit to the mood, form, and function you want for the overall design. In other words, to accomplish your design goals. Your goal is to complete the design. Sometimes when you overthink the individual pieces in the interior design project the whole design looks either uninteresting or completing lacking in the mood you were after. However, if you can visualize the completed look. The effect will be stunning.

A Check List for a Perfectly Designed Room

The three points to every great design plan are knowing your goals for the outcome. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What is the shape or form of the room your working on? eg. is it a large room, an intimate dining area, an outside patio
  • What is the function of the space? eg. will this be a space for the whole family, your home study or library, a place to entertain family and friends
