Interior Designers need inspiration from time to time and my favorite place to look is in "House Beautiful Magazine". I have probably been a subscriber to the magazine for 25 years or more. It has great tips and photos of wonderful rooms and focuses on color a lot. At the moment I am in the thinking stages of redoing my kitchen, so at night while the TV trones away, I am flipping through my copies of "House Beautiful" to get inspired. I have been tearing out any photos that appeal to me for any reason be in color, a leg on a cabinet, the arrangement, the appliances or whatever strikes me at that moment. I will compile a folder of all these interesting pieces and then sit down and begin drawing the kitchen up on CAD and creating the space I want even if it is just on paper. Figuring out how to pay for it will come later, right now I am just dreaming. When I meet wit a client I always suggest that they do the same; go through their favorite design magazines and create folders of what they like. It helps me get inside their head so to speak, and gives me a better understanding of their perferences. It's a fun exercise and if a husband and wife do it together, they find out all sorts of interesting things about themselves. So when I want to get the creative juices going this is what I do. Houzz.Com is another great inspiration source as is Pinterest.com. But I do suggest that while you are in the planning stages of any project, give yourself the luxury of doing a little dreaming. It's fun and relaxing and the ideas really begin to flow.
