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.
