New Year's Eve is more than just an excuse to drink champagne. It's also a time to set achievable goals for the upcoming year. If your objective is to give your home more TLC in 2014, you're in luck, as Yahoo.com recently spelled out some important interior design tips for the coming year. Take a look at the helpful hints below:
- Don't bite off more than you can chew: When tackling an interior design project, its best to stick to one room, especially if you have a spacious house. Devote your attention to completing one project at a time so that you don't feel overwhelmed.
- Find inspiration: Although following the trends will make your home stylish, it is also important to figure out your one-of-a-kind tastes. If you're a huge fan of vintage decor, then select this style over a more modern approach. Browse the internet or pick up interior design magazines for some inspiration.
- Plan: Before you tackle an interior design project, plan out your vision. "Start with a wish list of projects to complete over the year," designer Alissa Pulcrano of bright design lab in Portland, OR, tells the news source. "Plan, plan, plan first! Then take your concepts to your favorite designer (or two if you don't have one yet) and ask them to give you a proposal for your wish list. Take the time to plan it right."
