The nationally acclaimed designer shares how to make the most of your bedroom.

What are the elements of aperfect sleep sanctuary?

The proper color palette is essential. It’s important to know whether visual movement inhibits you from calming down. If so, stick to the monochroma­tic and avoid pattern play on pillows, wall coverings, and rugs.

Tips for finding the best bedding?

I help my clients create their dream beds through a series of discussion­s, and ultimately, it comes down to taste and budget. Choose brands committed to quality and timeless design, and you’ll never go wrong.

What are some easy ways to refresh a bedroom? For a quick update, switch out the table lamps on your nightstand­s, or hang a fantastic mural or wallpaper behind the bed to serve as accent wall.

How can one make an investment purchase less


The best way to avoid mistakes is to hire an interior designer! We always say, “Measure twice and shop once.” Double-check your dimensions before making a big purchase— there are few things worse than buying an amazing bed that movers can’t fit through your front door!
