Three Sources of Design Inspiration

Tip  one
 Go to a used bookstore and picked up several design magazines, just to see if you could get a feel for what you liked

Tip  two

. Anything online or in a magazine or catalog
 keep a folder of all these images on your computer so whenever you are ready to create,you have sources of inspiration.Here’s a peak at what is in your folder right now.

Tip  three
Get images

Cut it and set it asideDSCF1284

 and make you interested groups

Fill up your inspiration binder with the things you love

Or if you are designing one room, cut things out and paste them to a small poster board to help you sift through your likes and dislikes.

… And we keep all of our favorite recent issues (or mags we tagged) stacked in the baskets in the office

Some of my favorite magazines to pull inspiration from are House Beautiful, Elle Decor, Traditional Home, Veranda, Architectural Digest, and Cottage Living.
