Change of plans
A couple of months ago I started working with a great client in the city! (Hi Kerry!) Her apt is one of my absolute favorites. While it may be cozy aka tight quarters she has three levels and outdoor space! What’s not love? Plus it’s near one of my favorite Italian pastry shops….VENIEROS. So you know where I swing by after all of my meetings.
Within the last couple of months we had come with design plans for the whole place and we were sticking with a cream,blue, tan combo in the living room.
This fabric was a big inspiration point for the whole look.
So furniture pieces had been ordered, artwork had been ordered, window treatments were being made by the seamstress, etc. We were in the final stages and talking about install dates, when I totally had a change of plans.
While searching for fabric for another client I fell in love with a new fabric that I thought would work wonders in Kerry’s room. So I stayed up like a mad woman one night and put it all together.
Because Kerry had wanted to incorporate red into the space when I saw this fabric it all came together!
I thought Kerry would think I was nuts because I was giving her a totally new look when we were almost finished, but I sent my ideas to her anyway.
Here is the new look!
In reality we kept a lot of same things we already had planned for the room, but the new pillow choices just helped to tie everything together. The inspiration fabric is getting made into a lumbar pillow with some diagonal stripe piping! I love designing pillows with contrasting piping. *Stay tuned for a SHOP feature on the new blog!
Another favorite new addition has to be these:
Fingers crossed all will be installed when I return from vacation! Moral of the story is that it’s okay to change your mind. Designing a room is a long process and along the way your likes/dislikes may change. Just go with your gut!
Stay tuned for a fun give-away this afternoon from one of favorite home stores!
