When you’re clicking around on the internet with an idea or inspiration in mind, sometimes you will come across a photo that makes you gasp. But why all the emotions? Can you tell exactly what you like about a picture so that you can use those same elements in your own space?
Even if you don’t love large colorful art, you might be drawn to how moody and dramatic the above room feels. Or maybe a bright, happy painting really gets you going. If you notice a certain emotion when you view inspiration, try to identify what exactly the feeling is and what is making you feel that way. Then you can use those same thought provoking elements in your space.
THE COLOR COMBINATIONS
Certain colors make you stop in your tracks. If that happens, take note! Those might be the colors that will make your heart sing in your own room.
Is your eye is drawn to a specific piece artwork in your inspiration? Maybe it’s a chandelier lamp you’re drooling over, or an oversize mirror hanging above the couch. You could easily copy those ideas in your own room.
Sometimes a strong style catches your eye. All the elements of a room are working together to create a statement, like the rustic room above, that you just love. If you know you’ve found a style you want to try, decide which things are contributing to it. Chances are, it will be a combination of things that work together to make the space look Pinterest-worthy.
