-The one decorating rule that I always break is to put large furniture in a small room. If you fill a small room with little furniture, it feels like a dollhouse. You need that one statement piece, a bookcase, an entertainment center or even a sofa. -I love playing with patterns and just clashing them and mixing them up and it makes it really look fun and collective. -I love breaking fashion rules like brown and black. You can absolutely pull it off and I think it looks so cute. -I never wear black which is a fabulous fashion thing to do and it looks great on so many people but it doesn't look good on me. -I don't really care what's in fashion. I buy what I love and what works in my home and what makes me feel comfortable. -I find most of my design inspiration at the flea market online, Pinterest. -Fabulous magazines like Better Homes and Gardens. -I live in Italy in the summer so I find most of my inspiration when I summer there. -I love coming to New York City and walk down the streets and see what people are wearing. -Wherever you are, I think there's lots of inspiration to be found.
