To decorate any space, rely on your own inner wisdom.

Here are some things to think about. Perhaps one or more of these ideas will inspire you as you discover your own decorating style.

Ask yourself

What do I want to create? How can I make it beautiful? How can I make it functional? Think about how you want to feel in that room, the ambiance you want to create. Look around and consider what you might need to add or remove or move around to achieve that feeling. Think about how the room will be used, and organize everything in the best possible way to ensure a functional living space.

Place items like a designer

Here are some designer tips to help you get started. A rug should cover about two-thirds of a room with a little space around all sides. A coffee table should be about two-thirds as wide as the sofa behind it. Artwork hung over a sofa should be about two-thirds as wide as the sofa, and hung at eye level or about five to six feet from the ground.

A few more thoughts

Have three toss cushions on your sofa, placing two on one side and one on the other. Try taking a photo of your room with your mobile device before you go shopping so you know what you have to work with. Look for quality products and accessories that both look great and are useful.

Have fun, and enjoy making your space your own, reflecting your style in your way.
