*A picture is worth a thousand words Carry a digital camera with you and take pictures of things that inspire you! Upload your photos with services like Shutterfly, and turn pictures into large scale artwork for your home.
*Watch for the “Look for Less” techniques Find a high-ticket inspiration item that you would love to have in the room, but don’t buy it. Study its lines, details, and materials. Then hit thrift stores and hotel resellers to look for the closest match that fits in your budget.
*The room revolves around you Scale also revolves around your own personal size—if you are a tall person, you will want furnishings that don’t make you feel cramped, and if you are of shorter stature, you will want furnishings that don’t overpower you.
