Lynn Hood of LJH Interiors introduced us to “Decorating 101”. Lynn founded her design company in 1975 and has since assisted untold numbers of clients through every detail of the design process, from simple paint color schemes to elaborate furnishing layouts and lighting. An interior designer has more formal training than an interior decorator and utilizes many factors to create unique interiors which reflect a client’s tastes and lifestyles. Style, balance, color, patterns, and a budget are all essential considerations for creating desired results. Current trends include the use of wallpaper, gold accents, bold colors, and oriental rugs. Navy is the new black and gray is out. Lynn prides herself in creating attractive, affordable spaces that both meet the client’s functional requirements while considering and working within their budget.
