How To Create a Room Design Concept

KATE MARKER INTERIORS/INSPO PHOTO

Everyone’s design process is different but I always start with concept photos that inspire me and they have to be something I REALLY love. When starting the Zebra Birch Dining Room design there were three photos that helped me get the design process going. I first start by searching on Pinterest for what I thought I was looking for.

…I knew I wanted to do a black and white color pallet so I searched for “black and white dining rooms”. I said, what I thought I was looking for, because sometimes that can change depending on what inspires me! You have to go into it with an open mind and let your heart do that talking.

When you start to get confused go back to the ones you pinned and find the one or two photos you just LOVE: these are your inspirational or concept photos! These photos help give you direction and help you make good decisions during the design process.

Once that decision is made, deciding on a concept, then things begin to fall into place pretty quickly for me! I begin gathering items I really like that go with the concept. Once I’ve chosen a few things I begin to put them all together on a board to see how they all coordinate or balance each other out. Try to put the photos together in groupings like you intend to put them in the room, such as I plan on putting the mirror with the bench so put the photos together, and put the chairs next to the table, and so on.

This is just how I do it but of course there are many ways and processes designers/artists do to reach their final design!
