Betty Blount, interior designer for the Bellevue Club and Zena Design Group, shares her tips and trends for keeping your interiors on point.
tip #1: curate your space
Add art to a room whenever possible; it’s the best element for interest and color. When possible, hang art at gallery height–about 60 inches from the ceiling to the center of the piece.
tip #2: Stay classic
Keep spaces from looking too trendy or thematic. Trendy fabrics and inexpensive objects are fine, but use classics for elements you cannot easily change, such as flooring.
tip #3: use color wisely
Choose lighter tones if your space is small or feels confining. If you have great open spaces, dark tones are terrific for adding drama and intimacy.
