A TV above the fireplace is pretty common in many homes, but it seems to irk a lot of interior designers. Today, Nikolene Isely talks accessories, color, and designer pet peeves with Roomhints.
1. What is the best accessory to complete a room?
2. How do you decide on the color scheme for the room?
Many things come into play, the size of the room, the height of the ceilings, how much natural light, the purpose of the room and the floor type.
3. The secret to styling a mantel?
Keep it clean, symmetrical in an unsymmetrical way, balanced but not bookmarked.
4. Designer pet peeve?
TV above the fireplace unless it can be hidden. When the room is too matchy matchy!
5. Without fail design hint that you have learned over your career?
Keep it clean and angles aren’t bad.
