Designer, Skye Kirby

I'm a fan of interior designer, Skye Kirby. Her work is always comfortable, and light and airy. She recently did a "10 Must Have's" list for Traditional Home. I've included it here today.
Soft color
Heathery grays, blues, golds, and whites--in the Hamptons, these colors come naturally from the landscape and the ocean.

Comfortable seating and ottomans
When you want to cuddle up and relax, you always need a place to put up your feet.

A clutter-free zone
I am a believer that less is more. Over-accessorizing can take away from the calming nature of a room and become distracting.

Whether to read, to escape into, to inspire, or just to look good.

There should always be a good source of music to set the mood and create relaxation.

I'm a big believer in having a throw in every room to wrap yourself in--preferably while enjoying that good cup of coffee or tea.

A view
Orient your space to the best view. If you don't have a view, create one with original art or photography of the things you love.

Light and candles
Always maximize natural light. Ambient light can also effectively create a mood, if done with thought. And don't forget the candles.

Flowing fabrics
I love flowing panels. When the windows are open, the breeze creates a rippling that is not unlike the water.

Creative space
Create a space for whatever your pleasure is, a place that's totally dedicated to your creative outlet.
