Living Room Design Tips
Here are the steps I take when designing any space.
1. Create a Pinterest board
The first step is to create a Pinterest brain dump board. This is where you will save your inspiration images from step 2 and the products you like.
As you source online save the images at the same time. Otherwise, you may not remember where you got the image from.
Don’t worry if you like a lot of products because you will narrow it down later.
Also do not look at the prices yet. Just save furniture and home decor you like.
This is meant to be the inspiration for the look and feel you are after. Just dream right now.
2. Choose 3 Inspiration Images
Next start to narrow down your saved images.
Choose no more than 3 images from Pinterest or online that will be your inspiration.
3. Determine Your Jumping Off Point
Choose a jumping-off piece (artwork, fabric, pillow print, or a rug).
Use Canva or google slides to create a concept board. Add this image to your board.
4. Finalize Your Color Palette
Establish your color palette. Choose neutrals (white, black, ivory, gray, etc) and 1-2 pop colors if you’d like. Your pop color can also be a metal such as gold.
Save these colors to your Canva board as well.
5. Start With The Largest Piece
Choose your main statement furniture piece (the largest piece of furniture, your sofa in this case)
Add this to the Canva Board.
6. Add Accent Furniture Pieces
Choose accent furniture (side tables, coffee table, accent chairs, etc)
Save these to the Canva board as well.
7. Layer in Accessories
Next select your pillows, rug, accessories, lighting, etc
You know the drill save these to the Canva Concept Board.
8. Measure and Create A Floor Plan
9. Determine Your Budget
Lastly, once you have the “look and feel” concept board and your floor plan complete this will be the road map to follow for your room design.
Whether you are sourcing online or out and about, you will know the furniture, home decor, and size you need.
This takes out the guesswork and reduces the number of returns you will have.
After the steps from above are complete you may need to tweak the products you selected based on price or size.
As you work through the floor plan process you will add the sizes from the pieces you sourced. If anything doesn’t fit you’ll need to find an alternative.
