What’s In – Wicker
“My very first apartment came furnished in all wicker furniture. It was horrible. But wicker has evolved so much since then, and the way it’s being used right now is awesome. Since I am a more neutral designer, I’m always looking for ways to add texture and interest to a space without using a lot of color, and natural fibers (like wicker!) are a great way to do just that.”
What’s Out – Curved Sofas
“Curved sofas are such a waste of space. I think it goes back to my almost two decades in New York City, where you’re taught not to waste a square inch. I just feel more linear styles are a better use of space and work best for most rooms.”
What’s Next – Desert Colors
“I have been so inspired by desert colors over the past three to five years; not only in the modern design that I do but in traditional design. My husband and I just bought a historic Spanish-style home in Palm Desert, [California], and we’re letting all the colors that surround nature inspire us: greens and rusts and taupes and neutral creams. These shades are definitely in right now, and I don’t see them going anywhere. If anything, we’re going further into the desert.”
