I’ve recently become passionate about interior decorating, but I initially struggled to find my style. Here are a few tips that helped me get started:
1. Look in your closet. The colors, textures and patterns of your clothes will provide helpful hints about the style you naturally gravitate toward.
2. Think about who inspires you. Observing the styles of the people you look up to might help you identify your likes and dislikes.
3. Consider form and function. Some furniture pieces are nice to look at but uncomfortable to sit on. Appearance only goes so far; look for things you’re able to use.
