Get ideas and inspiration from websites and magazines and keep them in a binder. You can also place fabric and color samples in it. When you go shopping take it with you to make it easier to match colors and materials or find pieces of furniture or accessories
Always purchase the best your budget can afford. Sometimes you see an item that is within your budget, but poorly made. How long will it last before you have to replace it? Keep in mind that this is an investment and you don’t want to have to replace items every year due to poor craftsmanship. Shop salvage yards or flea markets. Antique and older pieces are made better and have lasted all these years. You can have a piece re-upholstered in your favorite fabric with the money you saved buying used.
Take your time when making decorating decisions. The results will be better than if you rushed to get it finished. Rome wasn’t built in a day. And those TV shows take a lot longer than an hour to complete those ‘fast’ rooms.

Great advice! I love the photos, too.
I love your photos!!
when we were in NYC we stayed at 6 Columbus! you should check out there web site
google Thompson Hotels.. they are amazing! no 2 room are the same!
Great advice! Both your tips are things I have to CONSTANTLY remind myself of as I shop for our new house. Better to sit on a futon or a folding chair for a while than to buy something that you don't love and/or won't last.
Great suggestions. Love the Steven Gambrel kitchen!
Fantastic advice. My aunt definitely adheres to the last tip. In fact, she hasn't purchased curtains for her living room yet and she's lived in her new house for five years! She's holding out for the "right ones." heehee
Great remarks, although sometimes people take for ever to make a decision! I would say trust your gut feeling and move on.
I wanted to add to the TV advice, please don't believe people when they say "a new room under $500"…
So true!! it's almost embarassing how many binders I have with magazine tear outs! And don't get my husband started on my disc collection from downloading images off the computer! I can't help it though- even if i'm not decorating- certain images just speak to me and I have to own them forever!! 😉
Gorgeous! Love the first photo with green couches and chandi! And yes- binders are a must for housing anytime inspiration!
