What's your favorite design tip?
Always buy the best you can afford. It will pay off in the long run, especially when it comes to lighting and upholstery. Fine tailoring and great lighting can elevate a room to new levels.

What color did you choose and why?
I selected the color blue for its wide reach, calming nature, and universal appeal. Blue looks especially fine when paired with other colors or simple neutrals.

What’s your vision for the space?
I really wanted to create a space that felt calm, pretty and livable. The subtle blue in the wallpaper helps us achieve this look along with the neutral upholstery, luxurious pillows, and the exquisite works of art provided by ACC artists.

Who are your ACC show artist picks and why are you featuring those particular objects?
I always love to use sculpture in my designs. They provide a uniqueness and fluidity you can't get from everyday objects. This is why I chose the Keith Holt's piece (bottom, middle). It is also very happy and conveys a sense peace. The bud vase by Ken and Julie Girardini (right) was chosen because of its clean lines and sophisticated appeal. Flowers can elevate any room, especially with the help of a lovely vessel. Gregory Holmes' lidded jar (bottom, left) is a wonderful accessory that works in any room; here, it serves as a conduit to help ground the space and offers a level of classic sophistication. The blue, glass vessels created by Richard Jones (top, left), provide another little splash of blue to help balance out the blue in the wallpaper and pillows. It's objects like these that can fit into any design. They work as votives, a holder for small plants, or are lovely completely on their own.
