Ever watch TV or movies and think that it would be impossible to make your home look as amazing as those on the screen? If you know where to start, it may be easier than you think.
For example, where do you get the great decorating ideas if you can’t afford a decorator? Chances are, you are surrounded by decorating ideas. When I’m waiting in line the grocery store I browse through magazines and look at the pictures for ideas.
Next time you start throwing away junk mail, look through the catalogs first. Many catalogs that offer furniture will have pictures of rooms around the furniture. Stores such as IKEA and Sears pay a lot of money for that room to be decorated around the product.
I also spend time window shopping at stores that I may not ever buy from. These stores take a lot of time to decorate the room that showcases their furniture, so it offers great ideas and I can actually walk through and get a feel for it!
I have learned which stores near my home and office update their window showcases frequently. Some days I just take a few extra minutes to stop and look at all the great examples in the window showcase!
When I have a few free minutes at home, I get on the computer and look at pictures of my favorite styles. Sometimes I’ll look for ideas, and other times I’ll look for websites that offer instructions on achieving the look I want.
There is a website for almost everything you can imagine these days, and home decorating is no different. Once you have an idea of the look you are going for and what the style is called, you can very likely find instructions on how to achieve it.
Once you get into it, you will really enjoy creating your own special dcor at home. Just start with ideas, than jump right in to implementation of your vision!
