Always save, print, or otherwise keep any home decorating pictures that appeal to you regardless of whether you’re currently planning a decorating project and no matter what room the pictures represent.
Keeping a record of pictures that you like serves two purposes:
1. After reviewing the pictures that you’ve been saving over time, you’ll inevitably find a pattern among them. The pattern that you’ll find represents whatever it is that innately appeals to you! For example, maybe all of the pictures that you’ve saved have a similar color theme, or maybe they all show rooms with a lot of white molding, or maybe they all have dark hardwood floors. Whatever it is, keeping a file will help you find what design elements appeal to you and knowing that will make it easier for you to define your style when you get ready to start a decorating project.
