1. What inspires you when you begin a design scheme?
I first ask my clients what colors they are drawn to and what is in their closet.
I then walk around the house and see what the lighting is like and what colors the house would like to be. Then I select what works best
2. What is the best accessory to complete a room?
3. The secret to styling a mantel?
I prefer symmetrical balance and work with the law of 3. Never fussy or overdone there is a grand piece in the center and a balance on either side
4. Designer pet peeve?
My pet peeve is clutter and balance. When items are placed off-balance it makes me crazy. I recently re-arranged the Halloween decorations in my Doctor’s office because they weren’t spread out evenly
5. Without fail design hint that you have learned over your career?
Accessorize. Without the frills and fluff it just doesn’t look Designer Done. Flowers, pillows and objects of art are key
