When designing a room inside your home, how does color inspire you?
"I usually start with how I want a room to feel and then choose color based on the feeling to evoke. After I choose one main color, I find fabrics and finishes in that color. I choose fabrics with that color and other colors included and then pull a couple more colors for accents. Or I may choose one main color for one room and another main color for an adjoining open-plan room, then pull the colors as accents into the other rooms and choose one more color accent for both rooms."
