A DESIGN pro has offered five style tips for beginners in order to create the perfect space.
Liz Lovery, an interior designer who goes by @lizlovery on TikTok, said that color choice is key when figuring out space.
Lovery’s first suggested step when decorating your house is to decide and stick to a color palette.
“If you feel stuck or if you’re not sure where to begin, number one, choose a color palette and determine whether or not you’re going to be working with warm tones or cool tones,” she said.
Lovery noted that warm tones contain a lot of yellow and orange and cool tones use a lot of blues and silvers.
The next step is to decide what you want the room to feel like when you’re in it.
“Figuring out what you actually want the mood of your house to be in can help you get to the next stage,” Lovery said.
Then, you want to narrow down your design style.
Modern, Farmhouse, Eclectic, Shabby Chic, Transitional, Contemporary, Art Deco, and Rustic, are among the styles she said you can choose from.
“You can start Googling and getting an idea of what those look like,” she said.
Next, she suggests you make a Pinterest account and go through all of the different images and styles that you’re attracted to, in order to pinpoint exactly what you’re looking for.
It helps to see “images in a collective sense,” she said.
Finally, you want to pick out your larger pieces or statement pieces first, and then work down to the smaller details.
