Overcoming Design Paralysis

Do you suffer from white wall syndrome? That chronic state of indecision when it comes to choosing a paint color or buying a sofa. Follow these simple rules to help you make quicker, more confident design decisions.

Take Inventory

Make a comprehensive list of the items you need to design your space. Include everything: wall colors, furniture, fabrics, lighting, artwork and accessories.

Set a budget

After you’ve made your list, apply a realistic monetary amount to each item. Do some online research to see what things really cost before you hit the stores. The dollars will add up fast so you may need to prioritize your purchases.

Review your Pinterest page

Identify your style by examining your shopping and pinning patterns for common denominators. Most likely your gravitating to specific colors, patterns and pieces. Eliminate the “what if” by embracing what inspires you. Have confidence in your design choices and purchase what you love.

Baby Steps

While the thought of designing an entire space or home may feel overwhelming, remember that Rome was not built in a day. Create a step by step timeline for tackling your project. Write each phase down from selecting the wall color to shopping for lamps. Apply a schedule to each step and commit to it so that you don’t spend months picking the “right” curtain fabric.
