The floor was stained a deep, dark brown, and it brought the whole room down. I suggested we do a large geometric design, because the kitchen is so large — it's a 20-foot-long rectangle. The bold graphic breaks it up so it doesn't feel so big. We kept the pattern clean and simple because the ikat on the sofa is so busy."
"You can only have one showstopper in a room. In the foyer, it's the wallpaper; in the living room, it's the curtains; in the dining room, it's the chandelier; in the kitchen, it's that acid yellow color. It's like a dinner party — you can only have one great storyteller. If two people are vying for attention, it doesn't work."
