The Expert: Alison Hotchkiss of Alison Events in San Francisco
The Style Hack: “Don’t fight the design flaw – embrace it,” Hotchkiss says. “If the carpet is a green zigzag, pull that color into the napkins or the seat cushions.” Not for you? Try draping the walls with fabric or covering the floor with a sisal rug. If you’ve chosen a palette with a metallic or a neutral, make that hue more prominent in the décor and save the bolder color for details like your invitations or signature sip.
