Happy 50th episode! WOW! That was a quick 50. To celebrate, we are responding to our listeners and answering your design dilemma questions again. This is always a popular episode. We reached out via various social media platforms and received great questions for Episode 50 so let’s get started.
Question #1: Kathy Cousart, Athens, GA
How can I as an Artist better connect and help the Designers/Homeowners understand the impact that a beautiful piece of art can have in a space? It can pull it all together if done correctly with a designer in that stage where it’s all being picked and collaborated. Love to work with others and collaborate to get just that special painting.
Question #2: Nancy Prochaska, Atlanta, GA
I have a two-story foyer with a large window at the top. I have some bright colored fabric sashes at the top of this window, in order to give it some color. But I am wondering if that look is “dated.” What the current trend for these windows? Our house is 30 years old.
Question #3: Jenna Henderson, Calhoun, GA
I just built a farmhouse. We have a very large foyer and I purchased a long rustic natural wood console (90”?). It has glass sliding doors along the front. I have already hung a very large framed picture of a barn/landscape above it which I love. I would like to know what would be the best way to accessorize the top of the console and the inside. I do NOT want to “junk it up” with small trinkets. I need ideas of large items to fill all the space. Can you help me with some ideas?
Question #4: Dina Pember, Auburn, AL
How can I have a beautiful bed if I have four dogs? Seriously?!
How do I add color to a room while still accomplishing a “clean and simple” feel?
Do you think the shiplap look will be a trend or stay classic?
Question #5: Elizabeth Donnarumma, Vero Beach, FL
I want to paint the front door of my house a bright color…if the front door and mud room door of my home are both in the front of the house do I paint the front door only with color or both doors same bright color?
Question #6: Do you think a runner up a stairway looks more “finished” than just bare wooden steps? Torn between the two…
Question #7: Joan Looney, Talking Rock, GA
How do you mix artwork in a room, if the style is totally different?
