Thoughts On Design

A. Lighting may be the most important component in a space that works well and feels inviting.
You can't enjoy reading in the perfect chair if you have no light to read by!

Direct / Indirect       Local / Ambient       Recessed / Track / Pendant

Several types of lighting should be used in every room to create pools and washed of light.
Then the magic happens!

B. Texture enhances the richness of any room. Do you prefer fuzzy or silky, sleek or ribbed?
Visual textures are valuable as well-stripes or checks, mini prints or oversized damasks.
But texture isn't only "skin deep"! Would you rather sink down into your sofa or firmly sit on top of the cushions? Texture can be realized in so many ways.

C. "What color do I paint the walls?" This is often the first question a client asks-and it should be the last question answered in each and every room! You will be amazed at what an easy decision the wall color is after making all the other decisions on furniture styles, colors and finishes, window treatment style and fabrics, rugs, lamps, art, flooring...

D. First a room has to work well for those who use it, then will make it attractive. So my very first question is,
"How do you use this space?"
