When starting your interior design project, one of the easiest ways to identify your direction and start making a plan is to choose a theme.
Theme is a fairly broad word, but essentially you should consider it the idea that you want your design to center around. You could choose a locale theme such as beach, country or urban, a national theme such as East Asian, Mediterranean or traditional Italian, or it could be something more simple and direct, like a color theme.
You could make the theme of your home or space literally whatever you want. Sports, outer space, the American Southwest – it doesn’t matter. Just make sure it’s something you love and a place where you would want to spend time every day.
Choosing a theme makes the whole interior design process easier since it rules out a wide range of other options. For example, you wouldn’t put a bamboo plant in a room inspired by The Yankees’ classic pin-stripe design. Likewise, you wouldn’t put a traditional Italian cabinet in a room with a minimal theme.
Those are just two examples, but I’m sure there are plenty more. What kind of theme would you choose for your interior design? Leave us a comment and let us know.
