Have you just moved into your home or apartment and you don’t know where to start? It can be overwhelming, but there is a formula that can help you decorate your house like a designer would. If you break down the process into smaller steps it doesn’t feel like as much work AND you might even enjoy the process.

Here are my favorite posts for setting up your home from scratch, along with real book suggestions.

The Secret to Choosing the Perfect Color Palette

5 Steps to Decorate Any Room Like a Pro

What Is Your Design Style?

How to Make A Mood Board

If you like a good book to use as a guide my two favorites are:

Cozy Minimalist Home – This book is much more than a decorating book. The author has a very exact formula for how to approach decorating (or re-decorating) any room.

Affordable Interior Design – Betsy Helmuth also has a podcast that I really love and listened to when I was moving. Her decorating tips are great if you want to start fresh or you are moving.
