There are times when it seems almost impossible to finish decorating a room, because it’s just not clear to you what’s missing, or what it is that’s not working in the space.
You buy things and take them back, rearrange furniture, add a new piece – nothing’s working.
Here’s a very simple tip that may help:
Snap a few pictures of the space from different angles, and then spend some time looking at them as if they were in someone else’s home, not yours (as if you were scrolling through Pinterest or a magazine and ran across the image.)
Looking at the space this way gives you a completely different perspective than standing or sitting in the space itself, making it much easier to identify problem areas and possible solutions.
If you have an inspiration room that you’re trying to imitate, lay a photo of that beside your room photo to compare differences.
It might also help you to see what you really like about the space, and how much progress you’ve made!
