When it comes to interior decorating, sometimes finding and deciding upon a certain look can be more difficult than dressing up the room itself. Especially when you consider all the various options, styles, themes, time periods, etc. that there are to choose from. Recently, sites like Pinterest allow you to see many different themes and get ideas, but what about being completely original?
Well, fortunately, there’s a few different ways that you can go about finding original ideas as well. It all starts with finding some interesting items and decor pieces.
The trouble with that is that if you go to a typical furniture store, you’ll only be seeing items that are already being made to suit a particular style. That means that you’ll have to wander off of the beaten path to discover some more exotic and original items.
Flea markets are a good place to begin looking. You’ll find a large assortment of items that have no relation to the next. Another good place are local pawn shops. Take your time and brows through the items until you see something that sticks with you.
That’s when the real fun begins. Upon finding an interesting piece, you can now search for things like it and start mentally building up a room, all based on that one item. This is the stuff from which genius home ideas are built. This will be something completely original and from your own mind. You just needed a little bit of inspiration.
Then you go through the usual: finding more items, paints, fabrics and the like to complete the look and put it into the real world. But it all started with a little bit of adventure and inventiveness.
