over the years i have beed blessed to work with so many amazing clients. each client brings a personal perspective and vision for their space and assiting them to reach that vision is what i love about my job. each experience is new. each client is unique.
some clients are paralyzed with fear, and need and want a LOT of help. they want a design, presented to them, which they can follow to the "t" and be assureed a great outcome.
other clients need general guidance and ideas that they can run with. they benefit from having a trained professional tell them "go for it!" having someone talk them through possible improvements in their room opens their eyes to possibilities and gives them a fresh perspective.
other clients just need...nudges. they need what i like to call "back-up". they already know what they want and just need a little guidance to get there.
this beautiful home is the investment property of a repeat client of mine. she and her husband have been dreaming about acquiring a retreat property like this for many years, and when the timing was right, they jumped on board. the home did not need major remodeling, but it did need a more pulled together and updated look, and all new furnishings and light fixtures.
she hired me as her "back-up'...i sourced lighting and furnishings, we consulted on furniture placement, window treatments, paint colors and trim details. we bantered about where to place art, the different feel of each room, and how to give the space the updated, casual vibe she wanted.
oh, and did i mention she was on a budget?
almost ALL of the furnishings were sourced from the following places:
we also managed to score a few things on clearance at restoration hardware.
who wouldn't want to spend a leisurely weekend here?
and, for reference, some before pictures:
