There is no single definition or standard way to create your dream home; it’s entirely unique to you. To create your dream home, let your imagination run free, but also consider your lifestyle, leisure space, hobbies and what’s truly important in your everyday life.
Before we get started, there are some tools you’ll need that will make this journey to creating a home you love much easier.
A dream home is not all about how it looks but also how it functions and feels, and how it aligns with your everyday life. A home is unique to each individual. Ask yourself: what story does your space tell? How do you want your home to feel? How do you utilize each area of your space? Make notes of what is important to you. Write down all the areas in your home that you’d like to make more cohesive, and then determine their intended purposes. This process is crucial in identifying what matters most to you. Remember, you can always reach out to one of our Design Experts via chat to discuss your design needs.
A cohesive home design begins by gathering inspiration images from City Furniture's Pinterest, your favorite furniture stores, or blogs. Start by defining how you’d like your home to feel -- cozy, moody, earthy, warm, airy? Assigning words to your space will guide the direction you envision for your home. The second must-have for creating a cohesive home is a mood board for your space; this not only ties together colors but also provides the confidence to move forward, knowing your end goal.
✔️ Our design experts can create a mood board that fits your style based on your inspiration images and your style quiz within a few hours.
In order to create a cohesive space, there are some prime accessories that really help tie the room together.
