2. How do you decide on the color scheme for the room?
I like the color scheme for the room to be selected after the furniture plan is complete, and once the furniture and rug are selected. For example: Depending on the furniture layout, you may want there to be an accent wall. Then, the colors would be picked to relate with the upholstery, materials and area rug or carpeting. The color scheme is usually the last thing to be decided.
3. The secret to styling a mantel?
Simple is better. It is important to pay attention to balance and shape in order to create ideal silhouettes.
4. Designer pet peeve?
A pet peeve of mine is furniture that is scaled too big for the space.
5. Without fail design hint that you have learned over your career?
Always select paint colors that are slightly lighter than you want it to actually look, because it will seem darker once applied to the whole wall.
