All design work starts with inspiration. Defining the style and desired feel of a space takes patience and a bit of time searching. I tend to start looking at images online so that I can easily share idea boards or individual images with a client. Houzz.com and Pinterest.com are full of space ideas and inspiration–just to get started.
Have you seen HGTV’s The High/Low Project with Sabrina Soto? It’s one of my favorites. She first designs a space without budget constraints and then recreates the room keeping within a budget set by the client. A concept turns into a very similar look without the cost – she must use a bit of magic dust with some of the transformations I’ve seen.
Just start with a space concept or design you love. Here is the inspiration for a current project of mine. I’ll share the design board once completed and then of course the journey of installation.
