Yesterday, you spent some time zeroing in on what your room is "missing" that you could remedy during this Style Cure - a well-considered project or item that will improve the look and feel of your room. Now that you've thought about what you need, you should set aside some research time online to figure out whether is is something you are going to shop for or take on as a project - and then gather the info you need to move forward with your plan.

Today's Assignment

In the coming days, will you be hitting your favorite home shop to find the perfect item for your room or settling in to get some work done on a DIY project for the space? Here's how to proceed, in either case...

If you are shopping:

No matter what you've decided to buy for your decor pairing, the sooner you start looking into what is out there in the retail world, the better. Start your search online today to get an idea of available sizes, shapes, colors, textures, lead times, price ranges etc. Pin your product possibilities to your Style Cure board or bookmark them so you don't lose out on any good leads. This is about finding a range of product that all might fulfill your decor pairing brief - the goal isn't to find "the" lamp or "the" bar cart, but rather to start forming a picture of not only what sizes and styles are available, but what the low and high end of the cost spectrum is for the product you are sourcing. As always, feel free to share links to what you are considering in the comments below and ask your fellow Style Cure-ers for feedback.

If you are doing a project:

Start searching online for sources of good solid how-to tutorials and lessons for similar projects. Make note of supplies needed, suggested skill levels required and, very importantly, the time commitment needed. Today is your chance to figure out exactly what you are committing to in terms of a DIY and knowledge is the secret to (successful project!) power.
