Decorating and Design Tips from Kara Mann

Imbue classic rooms with color—and a surprise or two

From Interior Designer Kara Mann
  • Here are design tips from Kara with a theme worth taking to heart: Decorate with personality. Your personality.

  • When a home has a view as gorgeous as this one, the last thing you want to do is compete with the landscape. The dark-stained wood mullions recede and let the large expanses of glass bring the outside in. We used the same stone indoors and out to draw the eye outside, and added a wood ceiling for warmth.

  • The Sidecar, price available upon request from Moore & Giles [1-800-737-0169]

    This beautifully crafted bar cart, The Sidecar by Moore and Giles, is a great way to store liquor, glassware, bar tools, and anything else needed to complete your own miniature bar. The cart, made of Virginia black walnut, birch, leather, aluminum, and brass, is wheeled to make sure the party can travel with you. Perfect for drink-lovers without the space for a full bar.
