STEP 1: CONSIDER THE SHAPE, SIZE, FLOW, HOOK UPS, ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF YOUR SPACE.
Whether you are building from scratch or remodeling your space, it helps to consider structural elements before you even begin looking for inspiration.
Now that you know what you have available to you, begin the search! Pinning the things that catch my eye help immensely to figure out what elements I definitely want to incorporate into the space.
You can create a design board digitally, which I often do, but for this big project, I wanted to actually bring all the elements together in real life and get a feel for how they went together.
