ON HIS FAVORITE COLOR SCHEME

Timothy’s Tip: “Blue and white is a perennial favorite of mine, and you can do it in different interpretations. In my own bedroom, I mixed a beautiful creamy/sandy/gold color with a ‘sagey’ blue-green and it is the most soothing combination. It’s difficult to drag me out of the room because I feel so comfortable and creative there.”

ON HOW TO USE TRADITIONAL PRINTS

Timothy’s Tip: “I like using traditional patterns that are either colored in an unusual way or that are somewhat over-scaled. I tend to use solid fabrics on the larger items (sofas, for example) and the printed fabrics on chairs, drapes or pillows. Always mix larger patterns with small patterns so that you don’t have too many prints fighting for the eye’s attention.”

ON ARCHITECTURALLY CHALLENGING SPACES

Timothy’s Tip: “Symmetry and well-scaled rooms are frequently overlooked in the initial architectural development. When I encounter rooms that are just ‘off’ I try to balance them out by adding visual weight or elements to the other side of the space in an effort to provide some psychological balance.”

ON THE MOST COMMON DECORATING MISTAKETimothy’s Tip: “The most common design mistake people make is not starting with a good furniture plan. If you don’t get the bones right when maximizing the space in terms of scale, passage/flow and placement, no matter how beautiful the furnishings are, the room won’t work for all of your needs. Get the basic structure right and then you can figure out how to make it look good.”
