I have gone almost 2 years without watching the HGTV channel or DIY network. This wasn't some strange media fast or the like, just a natural phase that comes after remodeling every room.
Well I am back. I have found myself scanning as many design blogs as I can find and constantly clicking "Save Image As" to add ideas to my portfolio. I feel like looking at other's spaces helps me develop my own vision.
I like the decorating in my house for the most part but seeing this picture in a magazine helped me realize where I have gone wrong.
I have not done any real planning in my decorating beyond finding a fabric I like and trying to fill up walls and spaces with things that have similar colors.
We are getting ready to move and I feel like new rooms give me a blank canvas to work with. My goal is to plan what I want the overall rooms to each look like instead of just getting them finished as quickly as possible. Have you tried this?
