Design Challenges

How many people have bought a sofa, gotten it home and then realized it was too big for their space?
Sometimes there are designer secrets to trick the eye for too large furniture and sometimes not.
A very large mirror has been known to help.

Another common challenge?
What color to paint to put on the wall. It is not unusual go to a client’s home and see 5 or 6 paint color choices on the wall, or bags full of small paint chips from the paint store. They are completely overwhelmed by choosing the right color.

Where to begin with paint? Look to a favorite painting or a pattern from fabric or the rug for inspiration. Then try some of those colors, but one shade lighter.
