The best sources of inspiration for your home design/renovation.

 

 

 

And here we are again at Sweet Blog, the sweetest blog online.

The place to be for all fans of the 'Home Concept.'

 

Today, we embark on a journey to a hidden realm within us all-the wellspring of our inspiration. This is the place where the seeds of our most creative ideas are sown.

 

'How is this related to home design affairs?' you must be asking.

We've all been there-the search for fresh inspiration to breathe new life into our homes . It's a quest that often leaves us feeling lost, unsure of where to turn. We find ourselves in a creative rut, struggling to find that spark of originality.

By the way, here you can read more about why inspiration matters so much in other areas of life.

 

Here are two quotes regarding inspiration that symbolize two different types of people:

 

One is attributed to Frida Kahlo:

"I am my own muse."

 

The second is associated with Nick Cave:

"Most people wait for the muse to turn up.. That's terribly unreliable. I have to sit down and pursue the muse by attempting to work."

 

Each of these quotes represents a different type of personality. And for you to get the most out of this article, you must first understand which one appeals to you more.

Have you ever considered where your inspiration for interior design comes from? Is it a reflection of your inner self, or do you find it in the world around you? 

Discovering your unique personality type can unlock a world of inspiration for your interior design. Once you understand your type, you'll find it much easier to navigate and find the ideal sources of inspiration.

If you've ever wondered where to find interior design inspiration that truly resonates with you, this article is designed with you in mind.

 

As always, later in the article, there will be a refreshing infographic presentation and a video summarizing its content for you.

 

'The best sources of inspiration for your home design/renovation.'

Let's dive in.


 

 

1. Natural Physical Environment.

 

Jules Renard once said:

 

"On earth, there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it."

 

The first source of inspiration for your home design ideas is right outside your door. Take a leisurely walk and simply observe the beauty of nature. You'll be surprised at how this simple act can ignite your creativity.

A common mistake in this regard is proactively urging a sense of inspiration. Please don't do it!

Just walk slowly and calmly, embracing what comes to your mind without intending to interfere or change anything.

Allow your ideas to flow naturally. If you find inspiration for your home design, that's great. If not, don't worry. Patience is key. Try again another day.

Our exhausting internal dialogue with our thoughts is the number one cause of blocking all sources of creativity/freshness.

If you're fortunate enough to be inspired, make sure to jot it down. These unexpected insights are often fleeting, and capturing them can be a valuable resource for your future home design projects.

Get outside and get some fresh air

 

Please don't mistake our words and think we aim for a trip to a wild nature or some inspiring location. A simple walk in the park or on your street will do the trick. The guiding principle is to leave your familiar area toward slightly different sights/smells. By doing so, your sense of inspiration will be stimulated. Thus, Hopefully, you will get ideas that will help you with your home design.

 

 

2. Technological Means.

 

After discussing the natural elements that can help you find design inspiration for your home, it's time to step safely into the twenty-first century and talk about the real deal - Technology.

Besides the fact that technology significantly influences the world of interior design, It is well-established that the variety of technological sources from which you can draw inspiration and technical assistance for the design/renovation of your home is nothing less than enormous.

Before mentioning the obvious technological means -Computer software - it's important to point out that although there is no doubt they will help you find some home design inspiration, their primary purpose is technical/practical assistance and not a 'Pure' source of inspiration.

'So why bother to mention them?' You must be asking.

Despite their technical nature, computer software can unexpectedly spark your creativity. As you navigate through these tools, inspiration can strike, leading to innovative design ideas that you may not have considered otherwise. 

While some computer software may require a basic understanding of technology, rest assured, they are designed to be user-friendly. The effort you invest in learning these tools will be rewarded with a wealth of design possibilities.

Some come with a free plan, and some are paid.

For those interested, here are our top recommendations for free computer software:

The best sources of inspiration for your home design/renovation
Software is a highly effective tool!

 

In addition to the tools mentioned above, there are other platforms whose primary purpose is to help you spark inspiration.

The best one is Pinterest, a social network that will feed your creativity as no one else can.

Behance and Siteinspire are also worth mentioning in this context.

 

You won't find a rule of thumb here. Try them all, and whatever works best for you - stick to it.

 

 

 

 

 

3. Our Fellow Humans.

 

 

The American businessman Malcolm Forbes once said:

 

"Advice: It's more fun to give than to receive."

 

The most familiar source of inspiration is other human beings.

Talking to friends and family and consulting with them about how they see 'things' is an excellent tool for drawing inspiration.

Suppose you have applied paragraphs one and two in some way.

Now, it's time to buy one of your friends a cup of coffee (or a cup of hot chocolate, don't be petty) to discuss some design ideas you already had but were not sufficiently established.

Listen humbly to what they have to say about your ideas. You will be surprised to hear how much another person's point of view can help you 'purify' your point of view to reach practical insights.

Human inspiration is not limited to physical discourse alone. The virtual space can also help you in your quest.

You can consult and get inspiration in various forums/blogs where you will hear the opinions of many people who know a thing or two about home design.

By the way, we at Sweet Crib are always here to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Feel free to reach out Or join our sweet and supportive community.

The 'Human factor' is not just a concept, but a valuable source of inspiration for your home design/renovation. It's about incorporating personal experiences and perspectives to create a space that is uniquely yours.

Don't underestimate the power of a fresh perspective. A little advice from someone else can spark new ways of thinking, leading to innovative and exciting home design/renovation ideas you may have never considered.

 

Remember, one of the most important tips in this journey is to be open and humble. Acknowledge that you don't have all the answers and be receptive to new ideas. This mindset of continuous learning and improvement is key to successful home design/renovation.

Rest assured, you will get great ideas by doing so.

Be open-minded. What have you got to lose?

 

Except for a cup of coffee.

 



 

4. Dive In.

 

After discussing the external sources of inspiration (natural environment/technology/people), it's time to dive a bit inward - Into ourselves.

Refreshing ideas and insights tend to arrive at slightly odd times. They will mainly crawl into your mind when you are calm and peaceful.

Most of you are probably familiar with that feeling:

You are driving on a highway, almost on 'Autopilot,' relatively relaxed. All of a sudden! Out of nowhere, Interesting thoughts/insights pop into your mind.

 

The examples are countless, but the guiding principle is that relaxation/avoiding dealing with exhausting details - which calms you down - tends to allow a fluid flow of inspiration.

Tools such as meditation and reaching inner peace will help you draw inspiration and discover refreshing design ideas.

By the way, such a serene room can easily be found right inside your home. Its ability to contribute to your sense of peace is unquestionable, thus leading to a burst of creativity for your home design.

For better brainstorming and improved creativity, your mind must be clear. Meditation, for example, is an excellent tool to do so.

You can read more about it right here.

 

Home productsBreathe. It will help with your creativity

 

There is a famous quote attributed to Albert Einstein:

 

"Creativity is intelligence having fun."

 

Hand on heart, what's more 'fun' than inner peace?

Do not force any active thought. Be present quietly and imagine your ideal home and how you would like it to look/feel.

You will be amazed at the amount of inspiration that floods your mind when you reach the point of inner peace. It is, without a doubt, one of the Best Sources for Interior Design Inspiration.

 

By the way, an essential tip in this regard is to put a paper and a pen in front of you, so when slowly opening your eyes, you can write down some of the things you 'saw.'
