In the winter months, it’s even more important to create a homey, warm space for family and guests. What is your top advice for designing a cozy, inviting living space? 

We like to introduce warm color accents and details that bring texture into a space. Furry pillows, soft throws, candles and wood accessories can be used in a living area creating a cozy feel.

Holiday décor can easily enter the realm of ‘hokey’ or contrived. What are some important tips to keep in mind when decorating a sophisticated interior for the holidays?

One tip is to keep holiday decorations simple and clean. Group accessories and limit the colors used, so the look is elegant, not cluttered.

If you could change one element of a room to improve people’s first impression of the space, what would it be? Why?

One important element is lighting. It sets the mood in any living space. Natural light is always our top choice, and dimmers are a must.

Are there any design trends you’d like to see disappear as quickly as they came?

One that comes to mind right away is the over use of animal prints.
