Each week, we’re bringing you top tips, favorite products, and Q&A’s with the designers in our Coastal Living and Southern Living Designer Network.


Richmond, VA designer Susan Jamieson of Bridget Beari Designs, Inc. shares her top 5 decorating tips.

1 Tip #1: Use an unexpected paint color. Punch up the volume with your paint color – go bold!


Tip #2: Add dimmers. Nothing brings more impact to a room than light. Dimmers on overheads and lamps create perfect moods while enhancing the items in the room that matter.


Tip #3: Replace your standard mirror with something more unique. You can use an antique or something more modern. It can be overscale or smaller.


Tip #4: In small room, take a big risk. Whether you add ceiling color or pattern to the floor, walls or ceiling, this is a way to create drama.


Tip #5: Create a collection. Grouping items of the same color or type create a dynamic visual impact in a room. Plus, it is a great conversation piece.
