You have always wanted to change-up your living room and finally replace that horrid wallpaper that has been in the foyer since you moved in, but sometimes that task can seem so big that it prevents you from ever starting. Put an end to your decorating paralysis and rid the worries brought on by decro-phobia.
Step 1: Start-up Your Imagination
The only rule here is to design for yourself. Figuring out what you want will be difficult if you keep second guessing yourself because you are concerned what others might think. Throw those thoughts aside and design with absolute freedom. Let your imagination run wild and create a design that fits exactly what you want.
Step 2: Break It All Down
Don’t look at this project as one daunting task, but an amalgamation of little ones. You aren’t redecorating a room, you are first choosing your color scheme.
Next begin painting or applying wall coverings to the walls and ceiling.
After you can get to re-upholstering your furniture, and adding in your accent pieces like rugs and throw pillows.
Finally, we add the final non-upholstered and accessory items. Bring in your side tables, photos, lamps, plants, etc. Breaking up a huge job into small steps will make it much easier to tackle.
Step 3: Seek Help
Getting a second opinion from a professional (like those super great guys at Beckenstein Fabrics *nudge nudge*) can do wonders for your tension. Sometimes just a little bit of affirmation can rest our minds and assure us that we are on the right track.
The added bonus is that an expert can solves a problem before it happens. Maybe your patterns look great as a sample, but are too overpowering for a three piece sectional. This is a mistake many people make by blind ordering and is easily solved by asking for a professional opinion.
