|My cute client sitting on what will be her couch, when they make it in the fabric she chose.|
Do you think they can get it done by Thanksgiving? They are gonna try!
|Her darling boy, patiently waiting while we shopped and |
shopped and shopped! He's such a cutie!
|The ottoman that was predestined to be velvet teal.|
She knew that part.
|Then we found this rug to pull the room together.|
I was a little worried we'd have a difficult time finding
the right rug since that ottoman was so bold.
|The rug has beautiful, saturated colors. Craftsman style, so it looks traditional enough.|
But, will add a little fun to the room with those bold, orangeish, cabbage roses.
Sadly, I won't be there to put the room together when all the furniture is completed. I think that has convinced me I can no longer work long distance. It worked great this time to be flown out there, fed, given a bed...but my poor client is feeling shaky about putting it all together. I taped off the floor to give her a sense of furniture placement but she wants help knowing what/where to put on the walls. What accessories will finish the room, etc... I wanted her to see that something tangible got accomplished so I rearranged her front room. That gave her the necessary adrenaline rush that a good change in decor can deliver!
I don't mind giving ideas. Making inspiration boards can be fun. But I truly feel the most useful when I can finish the room. I need to move things around...see if they really work the way I'm picturing. In all good design there has to be a trial and error element and that just doesn't happen when I'm just giving ideas and then leaving the state! I wish I could head down there to complete what we started! That is by far the fun part!
