Interior Design Tips from Rick Campos - A Designer Featured at The 2009 ASID Design Tour - Urban Living At Astoria

Rick Campos of Christopher Tracy Interiors proves that you don't need a big space to make a big impression.

He is responsible for three spaces (the foyer, the staircase and the landing at the top) at the ASID 2009 Design Tour - Urban Living at Astoria, all of which welcome you into the home. I love his choice of art for each space. It is bold, colorful and really makes a statement.

After spending some time with Rick on the Tour he was kind enough to give us some design tips to freshen up our own homes.

Tips from RICK CAMPOS – Christopher Tracy Interiors www.christophertracyinteriors.com
1) Add reflective elements like a mirror or mercury glass
2) Art books, the bigger and chunkier the better, one or three, meticulously placed.
3) Rotate art to give new life to a space.
