Do you remember this room?

I presented my concept yesterday afternoon to my young client and her mom and it was just what she wanted. It feels so nice to go in with a strong idea and then get so much positive feedback (a lot of time you MUST have a rendering for the client to ever except a bold or "different" design concept). I did have a rough sketch and that helped. We are doing that exact paint color, pre-dawn sky from BM. I got the floor plan approved by both mother and daughter. So next is paint and ordering FF&E. Just incase anyone is curious, I have spent 9 hours so far on the project. I still like to keep track even though I have moved over to a flat fee. It's good to make sure your time is matching your fee.

 Here's what else I found for the room. Most everything I found from either Ikea, West Elm, or Urban Outfitters.

We meet for the next three weeks and our timeline is to have it finished by the beginning of April. I'll keep all of you updated on our progress and/or hiccups along the way. Wish us luck!


  1. It is going to be incredible. Can't wait to see before and after photos!

  2. This looks like such a fun project! You've chosen really great pieces and I can't wait to see how it all comes together! Good luck!

  3. Hi, where is that purple pear pillow from? :)

  4. Cassi,
    It is a Jonathan Adler pillow, but I found it HERE

    The back is great too...half eaten pear.
