When designing a room inside your home, how does color inspire you?
"I look for colors that wake up a space, that give it depth and interest. Color should reflect the personality of the space and those who inhabit it. Even when using white, it's to create an environment and to set a stage that brings a room to life. The definition of good design is, I believe, to create a space that people want to be in...color is the first step in that process."
