Manage episode 344781037 series 2942946
Did you know there are barriers keeping your home design feeling flat and not cohesive? You may have one or all three in your own home. What are they and what do you do if you have one?
1. Bullies: Like any bully, a bully within your home wants to bring everything else around it down. Bullies can stick out like sore thumbs or be as subtle as ca be. The good news: there are ways to Recognize, Remove or Remediate the bully to your home's advantage.
2. Bondage: Being stuck in home design is no fun, but this stuck isn't from lack of budget, an uncompromising partner or even a lack of ideas. Being stuck because of an anchor piece that is too costly to replace or is built in to your home can sometimes mean the THING that's keeping you stuck is the same thing that is DEMANDING you make all design decisions to appease it. No good. The good news: managing Expectations, Engaging with the thing keeping you stuck and spending Energy toward creating a plan will help you get UNSTUCK and in to action.
3. Borrow: A better word - plagiarize. Copying an inspiring image item for item means that you recognize a beautiful room, but does a severe injustice to honoring your personal design aesthetic. Becoming a student of design helps you get out of overwhelm and allows you to step into confidence as you make design decisions.
