Finding your unique take on interior design can be a process, so Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, founder of Apartment Therapy, ran through the basics on this episode of Need To Know.
  • It's okay to copy -- If you see something you like when you're first starting out, copy it! You can make it your own as your interior design skills grow.
  • Start to collect looks -- Tear photos out of magazines, pin styles on Pinterest or save bookmarks on the web. As you collect images you love, you'll start to see your style evolve.
  • Style is fluid -- Don't worry if your style changes. Every year you'll want to make tweaks to your original design, and that's perfectly fine.
