What is your number one design tip?

Paint swatch! Paint is an easy thing to change but do you really want to do it all over again so soon because you chose the wrong color? Bring back sample pots of paint and put them up on your wall. Make sure you do two coats and allow them to dry completely. Throughout the day look at them to see how the light changes the color and then pick the color that you keep gravitating towards.

A design rule you love to break:

I love to paint ceilings the same color as the wall.
