  When Justin Mitchell and Karina Restrepo created the Mi Cumbia Spa on 17th Street, they didn't hire a decorator. Mitchell, an artist, approached the task as Albert C. Barnes would have evaluated a piece of art. To appreciate Mitchell's approach - and that of so many others who have studied the Barnesian method - you must understand Barnes. Imagine you have never seen or heard of the Mona Lisa or its creator. When you do get to view the painting at the Louvre, you admire the artist's use of color, the lines or shapes he has created, the illusion of distance, and the marvelous light he installed on the subject's face and breast and in the background.

From Burlington to Las Vegas, Mycle Gorman has been raking in awards for his interior-design firm, which has transformed and settled into the old McCrory's store on Mill Street. Since its move to the borough in the fall, Design Works has been singled out by the National Council of Senior Housing, the Builders League of South Jersey, and the Home Builders Association of Bucks and Montgomery Counties. Gorman, who purchased the company about five years ago, credited its success to the camaraderie among its nine employees and the close working relationship with builders.

Beatrice Fischel-Bock, Madeline Fraser, and Lizzie Grover studied interior design at George Washington University. But they got a crash course in business management during a recent appearance on Shark Tank , the ABC reality series that matches investors and entrepreneurs. The website of their online interior-design business, Zoom Interiors, got 40,000 hits the night the show aired and has been buzzing ever since. Fraser, who had been bracing herself for trolls, was surprised: "We're booked for two weeks solid with clients right now. We have like 800 clients on the books, and it's growing every day. " That followed an offer on the show from real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran to invest $100,000 in return for a 33 percent stake in the business.

A few years ago, Luna Schlein, an interior design graduate student at Drexel University, posted some ads on Craigslist to drum up business for her one-woman company, Sanctuary Interior Design. It didn't go quite as she'd hoped. "I got a couple people contacting me, but then when they found out how much it cost, I never heard back," Schlein said. "So I got the idea that people were really attracted to my portfolio and my style, and maybe they could afford the furniture - but they couldn't afford the custom interior design service on top of that.

Just when you thought the so-called "style-book" phenomenon might be tapering off, a new crop blooms. In the spring, bookstores will be crammed with style books. You won't be able to miss them - the word style is in every title. Recent editions include an in-depth portrait of the Pacific Northwest. For an area so lush with natural beauty, this region, which runs north from Oregon through Washington into lower British Columbia, has been curiously overlooked in terms of its impact on design.

If the crossover SUV is taking autodom by storm, the compact crossover is a Class 4 sales hurricane. The reason for its popularity seems simple enough: A lot of people don't need a larger crossover, and don't need the larger vehicle's higher initial cost and greater thirst, either. Among the more popular partners on the crowded compact dance floor would be the Ford Escape, a reasonably priced, reasonably handsome, reasonably roomy critter that does everything reasonably well.

After years of hyper-conservative styling strolls, Lexus seems to be edging closer to a walk on the wild side. A case in point is the adventurously redesigned 2016 RX, whose unexpectedly bold styling suggests a bit of corporate courage. After all, it's hard to mess with a good thing, and the RX is certainly that. With annual sales typically topping 100,000, this midsized crossover is the best-selling luxury SUV in the U.S. market. The styling is certainly cutting edge. You can argue that it's a bit busy, but the silhouette and sculpting are real eye-catchers.

Toyota is obviously doing something right with the Camry. It has been America's best-selling family sedan for the last 14 years. There are reasons for this midsize car's popularity: The Camry is affordable, economical, boasts nice fit and finish, holds its value well, and doesn't break much. If there's been a knock on this guy, it is that its styling over the years has been conservative enough to qualify as visual NyQuil. Car and Driver less than reverentially suggested the car has long been "reliable but dull" and "the suburban transport appliance of choice.
