How To: Organize Home Décor Samples
What You Need
Follow These Three Easy Steps
Assign one room of your house to each pocket in an accordion file—one pocket for the living room, another for the dining room,
and so on. Label each pocket.
Tip: Don’t have an accordion folder? Designate one resealable plastic bag to each room. You don't have to open the bags to see what’s inside, so you can sort through the information quickly. Store them in a small, plastic snap-top tub.
Gather samples of all of the furnishings in each room—fabric swatches, tile samples, wood stains, wallcovering pieces, and paint chips—and place them in the appropriate folder.
Label each one with the name of the room to which the paint color pertains. String them together with twine. If you want to purchase the same shade, you can bring the stick to the paint store where they can match it for you.
