I’ve frequently talked with clients that say deciding on an interior and exterior finish for their new home, addition, or room renovation is no small task. It can, indeed, be a very overwhelming process.
I’ve had the privilege of seeing many homes, which is to say that I’ve also seen countless finishes. But to keep myself from feeling overwhelmed when I undertake new projects, I create a file of photos to help me through the process.

I most commonly visit Pinterest and Houzz.com or I look to some of my favorite magazines: Traditional Home and Tuscan Style.

I recently did this very thing with my own home: I wanted to have a new front door installed. So I developed an idea of what I wanted—eight-foot French doors—and created a file folder around this idea. A year later, I had a stockpile of photos to choose from, and it made it easy to pick one as a reference point for the builder.
