Is your room up to date with some of the 2020 trends? Or do you still have those old chairs that look a bit old and unkempt? If so, maybe it’s time to give that environment a twist and create a new and improved space.
Planning your home decor can be quite difficult if you don’t follow an order or steps. Specialists have learned over the years that selecting a style and sticking to it or simply using it as a kind of muse is the most organized way to start a decorating process. However, it is not the only step you need to take.
Today we want to show you step by step how to start your decorating plan, from selecting your theme to choosing the right furniture according to your style.
Use social media to find inspiration
Social media are “interactive computer-mediated technologies that facilitate the creation or sharing of information, ideas, career interests and other forms of expressions”. They have their advantages and disadvantages, and one of its advantages is that you can use it as a source to search through a lot of ideas and designs.
We have put up a couple of platforms that you can use to inspire you on different topics related to interior design.

As you can see, you can add a Barcelona bench to the bottom of the bed to create a beautiful focal point as well as a place to read a book or magazine. What do you think of this idea? Comment below!
Make a priority list
After doing your research through different platforms you may feel a bit overwhelmed, to avoid this feeling you can make a priority list where you can put your goals and objectives in order.
This is important in any situation but especially in those in which you want to reuse the furniture and want to know what to reform. In these cases, you should set the reform as a priority as it takes more time.
Select your style or theme
As we mentioned above defining your taste is the hardest and important thing to do because according to this you will select a color palette, furnishing, accessories, and so on.
For example, if you decide to choose as your principal theme a mid-century modern style, you will have to focus on functionality, elegant and aesthetic furnishing such as the Barcelona collection including the Barcelona bench, chair. table, etc. Among this you should select a monochromatic color palette and place a nice texture on one of the walls in order to create a cool focal point.
Define a budget
Establishing a budget will guide you through the process of selecting the store to buy from. For example, if you have a tight budget and want a Barcelona bench replica or any other furniture replica, you can go to places like Barcelona Designs. On the other hand, if you have a big budget and want the original piece, you can go to places like Knoll.
