Finding the perfect interior inspiration can sometimes feel as if it is a foreign language; after all we do have certain words like “fragrant” and “delicate”. There are also words like “laboratory” and “desk”. I am sure that you know what your ideal is, but how do you get your ideas down on paper?
Well, the first thing to understand is that many of us don’t really use our interior inspiration properly. In other words, we sit down to plot out our space and from there move around various aspects of the room until we have formed the perfect picture in our head. I’m sure that this seems easy but in reality it is far from that. Here’s why:
As a result of our lack of creativity, we fail to see the beauty of the simple things around us. Many of us have an admiration for products on display at the local store. We look at the intricacies of a crystal vase or a beautifully cut crystal chess set and think that without these brilliant designs we wouldn’t be able to enjoy them. It is these products that inspire us to create beautiful homes and to work hard to achieve those dreams.
So where do you get your interior inspiration? The best place to start is actually within yourself. I believe that you need to take a long hard look at your life to identify what inspires you the most. If your answer is a work related task then I would imagine that you are passionate about that line of work and it has influenced the decisions that you have made throughout your life. This may be why your work surroundings spark your imagination!
Another place to get your inspiration is to go into your favorite home improvement store. Many of us spend countless hours of our lives in a kitchen. The reason why this is the case is that we can spend so much time in the kitchen preparing meals for our loved ones and for ourselves. By the end of the day, it is often time to wash up and move out so we can go to sleep. When looking through these stores, you are likely to find hundreds of designs for cabinets, shelving and other decorating accessories.
In conclusion, interior inspiration is all around us. It is inside us and it is within every room of our house. The secret is to know where to find it. Once you know what inspires you then you will no longer be surprised when inspiration strikes! Go out there and find it!
