I'm frequently asked about my own personal design style and how it permeates into my projects. Well, let's take the second question first--my style has no place in your house. Unless it happens to be your style. And that almost never happens. Today, while perusing Apartment Therapy, I saw a slideshow from a home that I would very happily call my own.
What makes it so great? The color palatte (love me some red!), the mix of styles (that secretary with that table--yes!) and, of course, all the beautiful natural light. The owners clearly spent a lot of time choosing excellent lighting for their home and, if I can give you no other piece of advice, I'd tell you to choose good lighting. Good light and proper proportion are the keys to the best designed rooms. Take a flip through and tell me what you think of this home.
