Interior Design 101 -- Space Planning

If you are going to design a new space, the very first thing you need to think about is space planning.  It's amazing how often I see people place the wrong size furniture in a room, or in the wrong spot.  All you need to do is get yourself a tape measure and some graph paper to make sure you don't make this mistake.  It's so simple.  You can have the prettiest colors, fabrics and accessories, but if your furniture is the wrong size for the space, as Tim Gunn would say, it won't "work."  I always carry a small tape measure in my pocketbook.  You never know when you are going to come across something you might like/love for your home!  Make sure you've got your measurements right and you'll be on the right track to a successful project.  Have a colorful day!  Nanette
