New Jersey-based interior designer Beth Diana Smith is best known for her eclectic maximalist style where color, pattern and texture live in perfect harmony. Her living room is a prime example of her design ethos. “I’m big on texture because it makes a room feel well layered,” says Beth. Touches of luxurious velvet, brass and wood provide a backdrop for statement accessories like pillows, art and rugs to command attention.
