When you’re getting ready to begin a decorating or remodeling project, it’s a great idea to get everything together. Moreover, keep it together! Any building, renovation, or decorating scheme will be more comfortable if you get organized before you start with an interior decorating project file. Your interior decorating project file will hold everything you’ll need to coordinate the project. Having everything in one place will help the job go more smoothly from conception to completion.
You can choose any style of a file you want. The choice is yours. A small canvas tote bag, briefcase, a notebook with file pockets, expanding envelope, or file box works well. Be sure you select a container that will be easy to carry from store to home and large enough for all your items. Probably the most convenient way to keep everything together, and your hands-free, is in a tote bag including shoulder handles. Interior pockets are helpful, too.
Place an expanding folder with pockets and divider tabs into the tote. These pockets will keep projects and items separated and organized. You can save several projects separate by labeling the folders for each. If you’re shopping for a lamp, you’ll know if the lamp shade is the right color.
If you happen on a beautiful flea market, you won’t have to pass up a grand bargain on an antique bureau because you don’t know if it will fit in your space. With everything together: colors, fabrics, measurements, and ideas,– you’ll always be ready! As you work on a project, you’ll think of things that would be helpful to have in your own interior decorating project file.
