3. The secret to styling a mantel?

Simply with a few key pieces that show a client’s personality. The mantel is a focal point and an area of interest, so it should be used to showcase a client’s favorite and most adorned pieces.

Walls and walls and bookcases of family photos. It’s overkill, especially on the main floor or living space where you’ll be having guests.

5. Without fail design hint that you have learned over your career?

Keep calm! Designing your home can be a frustrating task, but you have to remain patient during the process.

It’s widely agreed upon among interior designers that lighting for your home is crucial. To learn more of Jennifer Scully’s interior design tips read her interview with Roomhints.

1. What is the best accessory to complete a room?

Lighting is so important. It impacts the entire space. Never underestimate the importance of good lighting.

2. How do you decide on the color scheme for the room?

Colors are so personal. The client is always the boss!

3. The secret to styling a mantel?

Taller items belong on the left. Less is more. You don’t want the mantel to look cluttered. Sometimes a large artwork or mirror just by itself is enough to finish the mantel.

4. Designer pet peeve? 

I have many pet peeves. Ha! My top two are when clients insist upon placing furniture that’s blocking a doorway and when they won’t pay to have electronic equipment professionally installed. Wires and outdated electronics are so unsightly.

5. Without fail design hint that you have learned over your career?

Hang curtain rods above the window. Every time!

Jennifer is not the only one who cares about good lighting; interior designer Brandi Renee agrees that lighting makes a huge impact.
