The Organized HomeKeep Your Ideas With You
You have that perfect swatch of carpet, the ideal paint sample, and even some fabric for wall coverings - all to complete your home remodeling project. But how to you keep them organized and handy for when you're at the home improvement store or decorator? Read and learn.
We've been doing a lot of decorating lately and I came up with a handy system that I wanted to share with you. We gathered samples of our wall paint colors from our paint supplier, swatches of our carpeting, samples of our countertops, flooring and drapes, etc.
Then, we measured areas that we're currently looking to decorate, such as the dimensions of a particular wall space for a painting and the size of our tables for lamps.
I keep that photo book in my purse, so when we're out on the weekends searching for new things for the house, we have all of the information we need readily available.
It's much easier to choose a shower curtain when you have the color of the walls in your hands, and it's a cinch to choose a tablecloth when you are certain of your table dimensions!
