DIY Interior Design Tips: An Interview with Calvin Watt of The C'VION Company LLC.

By Calvin Watt

Please tell us a little about your company and the services you offer.

The C'VION Company is an interior design firm located in Lithonia GA. We do residential and commercial spaces. We have been in business for over 12 years and we love helping clients make their spaces beautiful no matter what their budget may be.

If someone is decorating their own home, what can help make it look like it was professionally designed?

The right light fixture. Lighting is so important from chandeliers to lamp lighting. It sets the mood and how color will be perceived through the eye. So make sure you know if your going to put soft yellow light, soft white light, florescent light, halogen light because they all create a different feel to the room.

What are some interior design elements that can give a sophisticated or elegant feel to your home?

Wallpaper has come back with a vengeance. It's no longer the dull paper you put on your walls, its metallic's, its linen, its grass cloth, its leather, but most of all its texture. You don't have to do every wall in a room, sometimes just one is all you need.

How can people decide if a specific furnishing from a catalog/store is right for a particular room or space?

That's a hard question. Designers are trained in scale and most times we can see it before we even measure it. But I would tell you to first decide on the color and then find out the measurements and get you some Scotch blue tape and tape it out on the floor in the room.

What are some common color combinations that could work well in a modern house?

White/Grey/Green, White/Grey/Yellow, Grey/Cream, Orange/Grey. If you noticed I listed grey in many of these suggestions because grey is no longer the boring color nobody knows how to use. It is clean and edgy and you can go bold with it or stay relaxed.

What advice would you give to homeowners who are redecorating and want to create a comfortable, resort-like environment?

Sometimes less is more even with color. Decorating with neutral colors offer you the ability to use color where you want the eyes to rest in a room. Neutral tones don't have to be boring as they come in all kinds of texture now. The last things you want is for a person to come into a room and there is color everywhere in different hues and colors an you don't know where to rest your eyes.
