Dreaming up design inspiration is a way for us to check out and take a break from the day to day shenanigans. When planning a space we love to start off with a piece of inspiration. I recommend picking something that you can use as a jumping off point to drive your design in a specific direction. The one thing I would not use as a starting point would be a specific paint color…of couse you can use a color of paint to inspire a feel or a color scheme, but I wouldn’t go painting any walls until your room starts to take shape. It is much easier to match your paint to an area rug or a fabric swatch rather than painting an entire room to then go on a hunt for the pieces to match. With this inspiration board I fell smitten for this rug from Overstock and started to build the room around it.
What inspires you? How do you start to plan the design of a room?
