DO start with a statement piece.

A colorful fabric, a piece of furniture with killer lines, a stunning piece of art. Let everything else evolve from there. This helps to give the design plan direction and a starting point to pull together colors and the other accents.

Pieces and patterns just need to "go" together! Try mixing patterns of different scale and colors to achieve the right look.

DON'T be afraid of color.

We're all about neutral palettes, but a fun pop of color not only keeps the room fresh, but can easily be changed out for the different seasons. Think: pillows, blankets and artwork!

DO invest in good lighting.

Lighting can make or break a space. It can also change the mood of a space. Too many overhead lights can make a room feel unwelcoming.


It can be hard to filter out the noise and pull together what you love with all the ideas online and in design magazines. Remember design is truly personal, and you have to follow your individual taste and style to truly create something you love.


Trends come and go, but a room designed around your unique journey will be timeless and always feel relevant to you.
