Christy Ferer's Interior Design Tips
Christy Ferer, Vidicom CEO, has something to say about corners and above the door. Make corners and other obscure spots work for you. Fill them with indoor trees, corner cupboards and benches, a grouping of bamboo stalks, or a screen. Fill a corner with objects relating to a favorite hobby or sport - maybe tennis, golf, or a horseback riding. She agrees this could be the ideal place to show off those trophies, award plaques, or prize ribbons.
Christy says the area of wall space right over a door can be a valuable asset to a room when it's decorated. This is where French decorator Pierre Passebon often groups collections of plates. Sybile Denfert-Rochereau has paintings edged in gilt and framed with molding mounted above the sitting-room doors of her chateau in the south of France. Bill Blass uses this area for narrow architectural drawings.
