San Francisco designer incorporates historical decor
on Tuesday,June 28,2011 00:06
There are many different tools that an interior designer keeps in mind when styling a new place. Allison Caccoma, who designs waterfront property in San Francisco, discussed a couple of tips on how to incorporate old style with modern.
Caccoma achieves this collaboration by using historical wall coverings. This large print can showcase an image from the past, and also add depth to a room. Adding metallics or animal prints can bring the necessary modern twist to a space. Bright colors are another way to go to incorporate both the new and the old.
Caccoma was once working on Wall Street until she discovered her affection for interior design, and started her company in 2006.
"I fell in love with interior design very quickly and discovered a passion I never realized I had," said Caccoma.
Individuals who are in programs educating them on becoming interior designers can earn nearly $45,000 after graduation, which was the median annual salary for professionals in this field in 2008, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
