So we are already into day 2 of the new year and into the second day of your resolutions.  Truth is, you can start anew anytime of the year so don’t put too much pressure on yourselves to get it right the first time. The same truth holds to starting a new decorating project. It takes time. Don’t believe what you see on TV design shows. It takes more than 30 minutes to take a room from before to after. Weeks of planning and process do into making a room fabulous even when you are a professional.

Clip images from magazines, travel brochures, and catalogs. When online, search blogs, digital magazines, designer websites for rooms, furniture, and details that speak to you. Create a folder for them on your computer or use programs like google docs or my personal favorite, pinterest. Once you collect a few images, you then start to see a common thread that will lead you steps closer into finding your style. Here are a few online sites where I often find inspiration for a new project. Have you tried these? Which are your favorites?

  • I am already a full-blown Pinterest addict, and also use Houzz and, to a lesser extent, decor pad. But even though I subscribe to Elle Decor, I had no idea how fabulous their site is!! Thank you so much for turning me on to yet another wonderful source of inspiration 🙂
