“I have a lot of dogs, so I take the same fabric that’s on the sofa and make a blanket that covers almost its entire length. This way my dogs can lounge on the sofa, and i just take it off when i have guests” Carolyne Roehm

“Never push furniture up against the walls, By pulling your seating arrangement in (even just a few inches) you instantly warm up a space and create flow” Betsy Burnham

“Displaying any collection, small or large, calls for ruthless editing. Always ask yourself, “Do I love it, does it enhance my life and can i live without it? Restraint calms the eye and gives everything a sense of purpose” – Amy Lau

“ Every room needs a touch of black, just as it needs at least one antique piece” – Jan Showers

“A good paint formula for ceilings is the trim color plus 50% white” Allison Caccoma

“Never use a sconce over a mirror in the bathroom – it will cast unflattering shadows across the face. Sconces that flank the mirror will give a more realistic and flattering light” Rob Southern

“ If you have a fabric but it seems too strong, check the reverse side – it may just do the trick” David Easton
