#1 Start by Sourcing Inspiration
If you aren’t sure how to identify your design style, start by looking everywhere for inspiration and save things that you love. Pinterest is one of Amy’s favorite ways to continuously get inspiration. Create boards for specific projects or think of a dream project and start pinning anything you like. Don’t worry too much about specific items or pricing at this point – the idea is just to freely save anything that speaks to you.
When you are ready to go deeper – visit some of the sites you pin from most often. Our favorite home design magazines include World of Interiors, Domino Magazine, and Elle Decor. (There’s also nothing quite like flipping through the pages of a physical magazine or catalog to get inspired).
Once you have a library of images – our favorite way to edit is to go analog. Print out your favorite images and cut them up, sort them into groups and identify the common threads (pun intended)! For example, if you find yourself drawn to the same color over and over – put it onto your moodboard and start bringing in things that might complement it.
