Stores like Pottery Barn mail out free home decorating catalogs because their ultimate goal is to get you to buy the items you see and put them in your home. There's no reason that you can't use these free home decorating catalogs as resources and let them inspire you to create a room with items you buy or salvage elsewhere.

When you get one of the free home decorating catalogs in the mail, flip through it and find a room that you love. Circle a few of the items in the picture that make the room spectacular and design your room from there. You can choose to buy these inspiration items from the catalog but I suggest looking around your house, at thrift stores, or garage sales to replicate the look for less.

When you have your inspiration items you're ready to use a free online room design application to plan the layout. Be sure to refer to that photo you found in the home decorating catalog so you can create your dream room.
