Secret # 2.
|You have to expect to be bad at it to begin with. Everyone has to practice to get better.|
|Start out small .|
With a picture or something easy to change. Make a grouping on your coffee table.
|Start with something small you can play around with and change easily.|
|Look up different ideas in magazines or at Pottery Barn|
Look up different ideas in magazines or at Pottery Barn online and see how they put together something that you like. Okay buy one piece in the grouping if you want, but chances are if it's something that speaks to you, there will be similar things somewhere in your house. Go on a shopping trip in your own home as well. Notice it has to be something that YOU like. Ask yourself this question...What is it that I like about this?
|Do I like the colors?|
|Is it the baskets or shells or plants, like a natural theme? Whatever it is notice the relative sizes, shapes, textures, colors...then make your own. It is not a copy but a representation of your taste, that your hand, eyes and thoughts brought into being.|
Maybe something more simple.
It takes time and paying attention to begin to see what you like. Becoming aware of that feeling of satisfaction when it is right to you is important. Trust yourself...Listen to yourself...and do it again and again. You will begin to see something taking shape inside your mind so that you can make it appear outside your head in your home.
