7 Steps to Becoming Your Own Decorator, Step 7: Build Your Room

You're almost there! I've got one more step for you to send you on your way to becoming your own decorator. It's the fun part: building your room! Now that you've created a budget, done some research, found your style, drawn up a floor plan, and found a theme for your room, it's time to shop. Using the colors, patterns, and other qualities from your inspiration board as a jumping off point, find furnishings for your home, all the while sticking to your budget.Choose a few options for everything on your list and play around with combinations until you've hatched a plot that works. If the sofa you love has a bold pattern, you might want to reupholster your side chairs in a solid fabric. If your "keeper" coffee table is low to the ground, you might look for a high-pile rug to continue that cozy vibe. Try creating a look on ShopStyle to help you visualize how it will all come together.

This is sorta like those paper dolls that came with outfits you could change around. Nice!

Yes, thank you! I'm moving into a rental house with a friend, and this will help us DESTROY the western theme that was left behind. Make way for beautiful!

I love the 7 steps series -- we often forget the nuts and bolt when we're in the middle of a renovation or tight on time trying to balance the decorator in us with our day jobs. Thank you!
