Starting a Housing/Idea Filing System


One of the best tips I can give you all is to continue to cultivate your creativity and stay up-to-date on what the field of interior design has to offer. Start noticing details of rooms and houses that you visit. I would also recommend you sign-up for a couple magazine subscriptions on interior design; House Beautiful, Country Living, Flea Market Style, Elle Décor, Dwell, and House & Home are all great magazines to look through on a regular basis to gain tips and more information about design. From these magazines I would recommend starting a filing system of rooms and houses you really like or “believe to be beautiful.” Here is a link to some adorable filing tabs and below are some categories to help get you started:

House style (exteriors)
Entry Way/Foyer
Living Areas
Dining Areas
Master Bedrooms
Child Bedrooms
Guest Bedrooms
Paint (colors, techniques)
Accessories (artwork, pillows, books, etc.)
