A beautiful home doesn’t just happen. Good decorating is the result of good planning. What should be included in your decorating plan? Everything that needs to be done – a comprehensive “wish” list, timing paramenters, priorities – by room and product – and most importantly – your budget. The more specific your plan – the better!
Most people feel the need to have some professional assistance in creating and implementing their decorating plans. With the myriad of products available in the market today, it’s impossible for most homeowners to truly know what exciting design products and possibilities are available to them. That’s where we come in. Professional interior decorators, like those at Decorating Den Interiors, have the talent, experience and special knowledge to pull it all together – perfectly – for you and your family’s lifestyle. And the added bonus of working with a professional is that we can truly save you time and money by helping you make wise – long lasting decisions.
So, how do you begin your personal decorating plan. Here are a few suggestions for you to consider:
1. Evaluate your home room by room. What do you like the most? The least? Does your overall color scheme need updating? What do you want to keep? Eliminate? Redo?
2. Create a Decorating Notebook filled with photographs of rooms that “speak” to you. Perhaps it’s a photo showing a room’s furniture arrangement that you find particularly appealing. Or, maybe it’s a gorgeous window treatment that creates an awesome focal point in a room. As you’re flipping through the pages of a home furnishings magazine, we suggest you look at each room’s photograph with a critical eye. It’s a proven fact, that sometimes it’s easier to say what we don’t like about a room or color…so don’t be hard on yourself if you find this process a bit difficult!
And speaking of home furnishings magazines, have your seen our Decorating Den Interiors ads in the current issues of Romantic Homes, Bed and Bath, YUM kids,Romantic Living, Coastal Living and the February/March issue of Traditional Home? GREAT magazines – filled with great ideas, and our beautiful full page ads!
3. Think about money. It’s a necessary evil in everything we do, isn’t it! But establishing a budget and a priority list for your decorating plan will be key to helping your professional decorator match design ideas with products custom made for YOU!
Once you’ve done your homework, and created a decorating plan that makes sense to you, your last and final step is to call in one of the fabulous professionals from Decorating Den. We pride ourselves on listening to YOU and creating YOUR PERFECT design solution!
