Lighting Is Key

Johansson thinks lighting is the most important part of décor, and what most people underestimate. “Some of my clients think I’m crazy spending over 50 percent of a design budget, but it really makes a difference.” At home, get a couple of cheap spotlights at IKEA and cover them with heat-resistant colored film. Then point the lights at a few key areas, like the bar, tabletop, or flower arrangement. Kill the overhead lights, and then add a touch of pink — it makes everyone look 10 years younger.
