What’s one thing you wish everyone knew about interior design?
I wish everyone knew that designing space goes far beyond picking out pretty decor (although that is the fun part!). Design is the psychology of space and learning how clients interact, utilize and dream of their space helps us to create design that makes them feel a certain way, whether they are conscious of it or not.
Tell us about a time that confirmed your love of being an interior designer.
My favorite phrase I hear often is, “I never would have thought of that!” It can be anything from a room layout to a color combination or the use of an interesting architectural material. It confirms that I’m providing a useful service and helping a family or a business live and work comfortably in an inspired space.
What’s a design hint that never fails that you have learned over your career?
Overlight and dim. Oh, and if you don’t love it, don’t buy it. That works for fashion, too!
