Even if you’re not sure what your style is, chances are your current home already reflects you. Take a look around at the things you have collected, the pieces in your home that you treasure most. Have you collected beautiful antique family heirlooms? Is most of your furniture ultra-sleek and modern? Perhaps, you’ve managed to achieve the beautiful and stylish, yet child and pet friendly home. Your home is already a reflection of what you like and identifying key inspiration pieces can help you hone in on a design for your new custom build.
Do Your Research
If you’re looking for inspiration spend some time online or paging through your favorite home decor magazines until you find images that most represent the style you want in your home design. Often these inspiration images will spark creativity and give your more ideas on how to execute your personal design style in your new home. For instance, you may be surprised how much you love a certain paint color, piece of furniture, or design style once you’ve seen it carried out on the pages of your favorite glossy magazine.
Consult With a Professional Designer
Once you have identified certain elements that you love, consider consulting with a pro who can help you pull together the perfect new home design. Professional designers are experts at composing fun and functional homes for you and your family, and they often have access to beautiful and unique products that will make your home feel even more special.
Choose What You Love
Home design trends change several times a year, so when designing your own custom home it is wise to choose items that you love and not feel pressured to conform to the most recent fad. That said, if a current trend really speaks to you, feel free to add it to your home decor. Just take a moment to consider if you’re still going to love it once your favorite design show has deemed it “out of style.”
Remember that your home is your refuge and, regardless of style trends, it should bring you a sense of joy, ease, and even a little excitement. Spend some time identifying styles and products you love, and determining what will make your home feel warm and inviting to you, and then share those ideas with a professional home designer.
