Elle Decor 2011 resolutions

I was asked by Elle Decor (along with 10 other designers) to share my design resolutions for 2011.

Here is what I had to say:

“I want to take more chances with color and pattern. In the teenage bedroom I designed at the ELLE DECOR San Francisco showhouse, I used a bright pink chinoiserie wallpaper (from de Gournay), and zebra fabric headboards. I stepped out of my normal comfort zone with something bold and colorful. I learned that taking risks can be fun.”

Check out what everyone else had to say at

What are your resolutions for 2011?

As you know I love to travel, and to kick off 2011- I am off to SOUTH AMERICA for two weeks.

Can't wait to share my adventures and photos.

Happy 2011-see you soon!
