Happy Monday! Today I thought I would share three of my best tips for home design from my guest interview on the Pepper Design Blog:
1. Try thrifting. I realize that not everyone is keen on secondhand goods, but there are so many treasures to be had if you’re willing to roll up your sleeves and dig in! I frequent my favorite local thrift stores a few times a week and sometimes I walk out empty-handed while other times I can barely fit all my finds through the door. I never know what to expect and that’s half of the fun! (P.S. more thrifting tips found here!)
2. Stay inspired. I think the key to producing good work and broadening your creative horizons is to know what inspires you and return to that source time and time again.
3. Don’t be afraid to experiment. With the exception of a few home design projects (major renovations, knocking down walls, etc), decorating should always be approached with a sense of experimentation and playfulness. Since our personal styles are constantly evolving with the changing seasons, why not let our homes be a reflection of that growth? If you find that a room or a design is no longer working for you, mix it up! A change of scenery can do WONDERS.
