How to incorporate your personality into your designs

When looking to incorporate your personality into your home, start with color. A great way to start is by looking in your closet to find the three clothing colors that you wear the most. Those are your core colors and a perfect place to start when choosing a color palate for your home and selecting artwork. Your home should feel like ‘you,’ and the easiest way to achieve that is by honoring who you are and what you like.

ART.comWhat to look for when shopping for art

When it comes to art, follow your heart!  Art should represent your interests and aspirations. Art that appeals to you and makes you happy is what you should incorporate into your space.  A great place to find art is on Art.com, the best place online to help people discover, experience and buy art they love.  Also, framing is an important detail – it really helps display your art to its best advantage, and the fact that art.com offers the service at 40% less than others is a huge savings.  They also recently added an exclusive collection from Jonathan Adler.

How technology can help you redesign your space

Design can be challenging if you don’t know where to begin. One of my secret weapons is Autodesk Homestyler.  It's a free app for creative, real-time home design that allows users to visualize brand name products in their space so they can make smarter home design decisions faster.  If you're looking for inspiration, you can draw from the interactive gallery of hundreds of room designs curated from the community of design professionals and design enthusiasts.

What else can you do to help express your personality in your space?

PartyLiteThe perfect finishing touch is the glow of candle light.  It's the greatest secret for creating a vibrant sense of warmth and welcome.  When offering design suggestions to my clients, I recommend the world’s #1 party plan candle company, PartyLite.  They’re simply the best candles you can buy.  I love that they burn so cleanly and last so much longer, which makes them truly affordable.

Also, PartyLite’s world class collection of fragrances allows you to discover your fragrance, your way.  And for great statement pieces,  PartyLite has an amazing variety of versatile candle holders that work for all seasons, making your home a true reflection of “you” all year long.
