Q: CAN YOU SHARE DESIGN TIPS YOU INCORPORATE FOR MAKING A BATHROOM MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT?

A: Dimmers are your friend! Keep them at full blast when getting ready or cleaning, and dim them at night for ambience.

Select lighting that is directed at your face rather than only from above, which causes shadows under the eyes.

Q: WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 5 MUST-HAVES WHEN DECORATING A CLOSET SPACE?

A: 1. Decorative lighting

The jewelry in any room has to be decorative lighting. Adding a beautiful ceiling fixture above the island and wall scones above the storage makes the space feel special.

2. Architectural task lighting

Architectural task lighting in the ceiling above and in the clothing rods help to see all items in the closet.

3. Full spectrum bulbs 

Make sure to select true full spectrum bulbs. Some bulbs run cool (blue) and some are warm (yellow), which change the look of colors in a wardrobe.

4. Cabinetry layouts 

Cabinetry layouts include any variety of storage space for long and short hung clothing, draws, and open shelving.

5. Full length mirror

Don't forget a full length mirror for that last glance before you head out the door.

Q: AS AN INTERIOR DESIGNER, WHAT ARE SOME INSTANCES WHERE AN LED MIRROR IS THE BEST OPTION FOR THE GIVEN SPACE?

A: An LED mirror is a must have in every bathroom vanity, and choose a full length version in the walk in closet.
