Think about something that makes you happy, something that comforts you when things aren’t going your way. Using something meaningful as the inspiration piece can be a source of energy for your home. You want it to make a statement about who you are during the home design process. Then you can build upon it, tie the rest of your home together, and showcase its character.
An inspiration piece can be anything – art, wallpaper, a pillow, a rug, or anything you love. It induces an emotional connection and a sense of joy. The rest of the design is built from this piece. Your inspiration piece will define the overall color scheme and set the tone for the plan.
Color is not considered an inspiration piece; it is part of your style. It will define the design by selecting colors and patterns that work with your inspiration piece and enhance its placement. A trick that helps determine if you’re on the right track is imagining your family in the space. If you can’t, you may want to reconsider your design choices.
After choosing your inspiration piece, things will begin to fall into place because it will guide your color selections and accent pieces. Having narrowed your focus, you will start to notice colors and textures that will complement your inspiration piece. Once you’ve decided where to place your inspiration piece, you can build from there. Be sure to leave negative space around the item so that everything else doesn’t detract from its importance.
Whether you have a custom home built or want to breathe new life into your existing home, finding your inspiration piece can help you create the perfect space for yourself during the design process. Give them a call to learn how Harbor Classic Homes can help you build your dream home.
