The task of decorating is loved by same and hated by others. People who
consider themselves to be artistic or creative are probably the same
people who enjoy nothing more spending entire days gathering decorating
ideas. The not-so-creative among us would find looking for decorating
ideas boring or frustrating.

It is quite possible that those who are frustrated anytime decorating
ideas are mentioned are that way because they have been looking for
decorating ideas in all the wrong places.

Finding great decorating ideas does not require a degree in art or the
ability to put make something beautiful out of a canvas and a few oil
paints. It does, however, require a little bit of patience and a good
perspective. Anyone looking to decorate even the smallest space of a home
or office must realize that finding great decorating ideas may not happen
in an instant or even in an afternoon. Be assured that the more time and
care you put into the process of finding decorating ideas, the better you
will enjoy and be satisfied with the area you decorate.

For a first step, go into the room or the area that you are hoping to
decorate. Grab a notebook and sit down for a few minutes. Try to
visualize what you hope this room will look like when you're done with
it. Write down any ideas or impressions that come to mind. Even the most
uncreative people (if there are such people) should be able to articulate
the kind of space they hope to decorate. Some of your best and most
creative decorating ideas will happen as you simply think of what you
hope for.

Once you have some ideas to start with, take some time to gather
decorating ideas from other sources. This can be as simple as paying
close attention as you visit the apartments and homes of friends. You can
learn great decorating ideas by seeing what others have done. Make a
mental note of things you especially liked and things you would never
want to repeat in your own home. Be sure to write these ideas down once
you return home. Learning from the decorating mistakes and victories of
others is one of the absolutely best resources you have in gathering
decorating ideas for your own space.

Another great source for collecting great decorating ideas is magazines.
Sit down at a bookstore, enjoy a great latte, and get lost in the ideas
of other homeowners and professional decorators. Keep your notebook handy
and begin to form some concrete decorating ideas as you see what has
worked. When you are tired of sitting walk through the home sections of
department stores or look through home decorating stores such as Pier One
or Pottery Barn. In no time you will have narrowed your list down to the
perfect decorating ideas just for you.
