We asked interior design pros what they like most. And boy, did they have a lot to say! From color schemes to furniture styles, these experts spilled the beans on their favorite aspects of their craft. Here are some of the highlights:
“I love playing with textures and patterns. They can add so much personality and warmth to a space. I especially enjoy mixing and matching different fabrics, like velvet, silk, leather, and linen.” – Anna, 32
– “My favorite thing is lighting. It can make or break a room. I always try to create layers of light, using natural light, ambient light, task light, and accent light. I also love experimenting with different types of lamps, chandeliers, sconces, and candles.” – Ben, 28
– “I’m obsessed with plants. They bring life and freshness to any room. I like to use a variety of plants, from succulents to ferns, and place them in different spots, like on shelves, windowsills, tables, and floor. I also love using planters and pots that complement the decor.” – Chloe, 25
– “I enjoy working with colors. They can set the mood and tone of a space. I like to use a color wheel to find harmonious combinations, like complementary, analogous, or triadic colors. I also like to use pops of color to create contrast and interest.” – Dan, 30
– “I adore vintage pieces. They have so much character and history. I like to hunt for them in flea markets, thrift stores, and online auctions. I like to mix them with modern elements to create a unique and eclectic look.” – Ella, 27
