How to become a Design Star

Design Star

Here's our sixth "Celebrating You" Design Star:

Gail Baker, CID
Stage Right Interior Design

I've been an Interior Designer for over 30 years and have worked for both large and small firms. I've owned my own business for the past 15 years and do primarily residential design. I am a certified Feng Shui practioner and most of my years in the design field were focused on Model Home Design.

My business name is Stage Right...but I'm finding that I do much more than Home Staging....which is fun because I love it all and find the variety of work and clients  inspiring.

The Design Challenge
The biggest challenge with this bedroom was the dark beamed ceiling and working with both warm and cool colors. The client was set on using a grey toned tile in her adjacent master bath and had a very orangey wood stain to start with in both rooms.  She agreed to let us tone down the wood with a white wash and that really helped.  

The Objective
The goal was to create a restful, "Zen" master bedroom and bath while incorporating natural elements and blending styles.

The Lesson

Once the client landed on the gorgeous "lead" fabric from Design Alliance's Robert Allen Collection everything came together nicely.  We used it on shams and chair upholstery and pulled other fabrics from this pattern.
