When it comes to decorating, most people tend to play it safe. I don’t think it’s because they are averse to colour, they just don’t know where to start. They’ll choose a beige sofa with the matching wood coffee tables and end tables and maybe a teensy bit of pattern – only on the pillows! Finding inspiration is hard. I have written before about how I tend to be fickle when it comes to my own design choices. I think I have it locked down and then I see something shiny and I’m off in a completely different direction. My husband always says if he doesn’t like something he’ll just wait three months because it will be changed by then!
One of my favourite sources for inspiration is Style Me Pretty. This website/blog showcases real weddings and provides ideas for all stages of wedding and event planning. Their inspiration boards are absolutely amazing and often influence anything from my wardrobe to decor to entertaining. I could spend hours on the site and I’ve used three of their boards to illustrate how they could be used as the basis for a room’s colour scheme.
