If you are looking for some inspiring sources for home décor and ideas that might motivate you to introduce a new style into your living space, here are some suggestions to follow.
One of the best ways to actually see how your Pinterest mood board relates to a real-life décor, is to visit a staged home model. You will get a perfect idea about colors and how different times of the day may impact the ambience. Another very important aspect is space planning and actually walking through the decorated home will help you understand your needs and wants when it comes to space.
If you would like to see professionals in their best element, then design shows are the perfect resource for you. You will be able to see the close-up of their professional design decisions and maybe pick up a few tricks yourself.
In order to find unique furniture pieces, museums or antique auctions are the best places to be. Find the time period you are interested in and invest time researching where you can get a table or a chair in that particular style.
For general inspiration and ideas, magazines and online search is the way to go. Not only will you expand your knowledge, but you will also be able to compare between a vast number of décor images and select the exact style that you like.
Keeping a decorating file is another great idea, with printouts, pictures, magazine clippings, fabric and paint samples, etc.
