Wallpaper is a wonderful way to enhance a space.

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

I prefer lighter colors because it opens up a space. Metallic colors also work for well-lit spaces because they reflect and transform the light. However, I love dark gray or black to contrast in small rooms.

I believe in keeping a mantel as clean as possible, but I am always open to an array of art books.


Do you have a designer pet peeve?

I’m a stickler for excessively fussy materials or objects. Pick a few things that are meaningful to you that reflect a particular story, and choose only them to adorn your space. Everything else is fluff and expendable.

What’s a design tip that’s never failed you that you’ve learned over your career?

If you think you are finished, strip away another layer until the end product is the most refined version of itself it can be.
