5 Tips to creating your dream home

GET TO KNOW YOUR DESIGNER

Often the first and one of the most crucial steps in designing your dream home is getting to know your designer. Interviewing and getting to know your chosen designer builds trust, making the whole design process smoother, easier, and more enjoyable. Additionally, it is important to select a designer that takes the time to get to know you so that they can create a completely custom home that compliments your personality, needs, and aesthetic.

DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT YOUR HOME TO FEEL LIKE

Beyond looks, it is important to have an idea of the feeling you want your home to convey. What emotions do you want your home to evoke? How do you want to feel when at home? If you want your home to be a refuge and a place of relaxation, you may want to consider implementing calming colors, soft materials, and cozy furnishings. However, if you want your home to be bright and energetic, a more colorful and playful palette might suit you better.

DRAW INSPIRATION FROM A VARIETY OF SOURCES

Don’t get us wrong… we love using Pinterest as a tool to gather design inspiration and stay on top of design trends. However, not all of your design inspiration needs to come from there! Design inspiration can come from anywhere; music, landscapes, architecture, natural textures, and even other people can have beautiful influences in design. Begin collecting feel-good memories, photographs, or even personal souvenirs to convey your vision to your designer.

DON’T BE AFRAID TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT

Leaving your comfort zone can be intimidating, but there is nothing more rewarding and beautiful than a successful design risk! Refer back to our first tip and trust your designer when you feel uneasy about designing outside of your comfort zone. Adding a risky pattern, color, or texture can be the key to creating a beautiful design that you love.

TRY COMBINING DESIGN STYLES

One last consideration in creating a completely custom home is allowing your designer to combine design styles. In truth, there are very few “pure” design styles. By combining old with the new, the bold with the soft, your home can go from a cookie-cutter style, to a totally unique and custom residence.
