DESIGN 101…

Sometimes the best advice, is someone else’s advice. I’m devoting this post to one of my favorite interior designers ,Summer Thornton, and her simple approach to key elements to creating a most opulently eclectic , functional, inspired and desired space…

  • Do at least one thing your mother wouldn’t
  • Reference the past, don’t repeat it
  • Use patterns and colors recklessly!
  • Insist on natural fabrics
  • Colors don’t clash
  • Never say never
  • More is more
  • Always say no to faux  (I agree unless it’s fur!)
  • Every home should have at least 1 thing from a flea market
  • Traditional designs need-not be boring
  • God’s neutral is green
  • Fresh flowers are a room’s best accessory
  • No great room was ever designed without taking a risk
  • If your neighbors are doing it, you probably shouldn’t
