A few weeks ago, I posted about having an amazing new client who is working with an orange and pink color scheme.
I took a couple photos during our initial consultation
Here is my next phase in the design process. I (we actually, I am collaborating with another designer on this project) have collected ideas and images of furniture and finishes that we will be using. Here is my schematic (I hate the term “mood board”) for the living room. The pink chairs are a fantasy, the budget can’t afford them, but I have a lead on something similar. We will be custom making the ottoman out of indoor/outdoor fabric to ensure its durability. At this point, the scheme is missing accessories. In this instance, the client has some awesome stuff to work with. I don’t think we will add anything until the very end. Utilizing a client’s pre-exhisting accessories is the best way to ensure that a space is personal.
On one wall, we are proposing a mural/wallpaper treatment similar to the images from fromental below. Again, the budget won’t allow for the real thing, but we have some interesting low budget ideas.
Here is the schematic for the dining area. This area will include an adjustable height pendant. When the table is pushed against the wall and being used as an entry table, the pendant will be pushed high like a surface mounted fixture. When the client is entertaining and the dining table is being used, the fixture can be lowered for a more intimate light. From the images below, the room seems spartan, but there will be lots going on with the shelving (storage, display, wine glasses and bottles). Keeping everything else on the simple side will help this room out immensely.
We still have window treatments to figure out and a bedroom to glam up and an office/dressing room to space plan the heck out of!
Stay tuned for more posts about this project. Today I am working on space planning and meeting with the client again this weekend.
I love working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.
