Famous interior designer shares her experiences in the industry

Candice Olson, who now is known for her home makeover show on HGTV, recently shared some interior design tips with the Washington Post.
Olson suggests that lighting is the most important dynamic while designing a new space, She believes any additional money should go into dimmers or other lighting tools, according to the news source.
Her biggest piece of advice is to encourage people to design for themselves. If you are designing a room for a young child, have them help with the process and keep that in mind while picking out pieces and fabrics, the Post reports.
Olson's show, which is called Divine Design, is aired in over 100 countries. She recently started a new series about what inspires her designs and changes to a space, and also began her own brand of home furnishings, according to the newspaper.
