What home trends are you most excited about right now?
Mixing time periods, tones and textures with a minimal/simplistic feel. I love using large-scale when it comes to patterns, whether with fabric or wallcoverings. I stay up to date on what is trending and love to see what is coming next — however, ultimately what is best for the client wins over whatever is most popular.
Why is it worth using an interior designer versus DIYing the design of a room?
If a client has a thought in mind of what they would like, a designer can help bring it all together and we have the resources to do that. My big word is cohesiveness. When our homes flow nicely, our brains can settle.
What color combos are you excited about right now?
The drama of incorporating black is definitely on trend, and I love it. It can be just what is needed for that unexpected element that brings the entire project together. Neutrals with appropriate pops of color are [on trend] as well.
