Use plants to bring life.
Designing is a lot like a high-wire act - if the tightrope walker is only six inches off the ground, where's the excitement?
Whether it was working on theatre sets or stage lighting, I didn't realize most all of the skills I was exposed to were going to come in handy later on when I became a designer.
There is no such thing as a guilty pleasure.
What people respond to in my room makeovers is the daring design - fearless colors, bold fabrics and occasionally outlandish decor.
