My Complete Interior Design Process

My comprehensive and complete interior design process: how to make a moodboard, how to plan an interior design project, how I get inspired, how to create a floor plan, how to source furniture and more!

This post is a loooong time coming and I am so glad to finally hit publish on it! I’m asked all the time about how I approach a new interior design project, how I choose a color palette, decor concept, etc. So today I’m covering all of those topics AND MORE as I walk you through my entire, comprehensive interior design process. Keep in mind that I am not trained in interior design, but rather have relied on honing my eye over the years and practicing in my home and others. Also, this is a process that works for me, but feel free to adapt parts of it based on what works best for you!

Add Drama to Your Home with Woven and Rattan Lighting including pendants, chandeliers, table lamps, flushmounts, ceiling lights, sconces, wall lights and floor lamps

I am so hesitant to call this a trend because I believe that texture lighting is here to stay (and has been for a long time).

While searching, I figured it was a good opportunity to share some of the gorgeous options I’ve found in case you’re on the hunt, too!

To me, there is nothing more fun than styling open shelving and built-ins. There is definitely an art form to it, which I talked about a lot in this post from the archives. But now in the cabin, we have a totally different styling to tackle: the built-in shelving in our living room! It’s like a #shelfie but a bigger scale. As soon as we painted it green, I knew it would be the ultimate canvas for me to play with. So today I wanted to have you a cubby-by-cubby tour of it and why I chose the objects that are on display.

Does it feel like I’m throwing too many renovation projects at you? I hope not! This house is just wayyy bigger than our last one and has SO much work that needs to be done.

A lot got in the way (more on that here), but we’re finally back to it. So today I want to share the before photos of the space, my design plans, the to do list, and a bit about why we are renovating this room in stages.
