Sorry about the shadow on the first photo....
This client had an established color story, so we just added fabrics to coordinate with what she already had and wanted to keep. She wanted to keep her rug and wall color. The challenge was the width of the window, size of each window, and the space above the windows. Due to the width, side panels only would have left an abundance of wall space between the panels. Each window was too narrow to add panels between each window. The panels would have looked like toothpicks! The small amount of wall space above the windows due to the tray ceiling above limited how high we could take the panels. Bummer. I like to take the panel as high as we can to visually expand the room. We chose a lighter fabric and added mirrors between to address all the issues without creating more issues!
For the bedding, she only wanted two layers of pillows because she didn't want to cover up the detail on her bed, and with dogs and kids, less was just fine. Also, the coverlet or duvet needed to be washable. We purchased two luxury coverlets and sewed them together to create a large coverlet. Don't you hate it when you wash your coverlet, it shrinks and then barely covers the mattress!?
The toile pillow goes in the chair, but for the picture, I slipped it on the bed and then forgot to take one without it. It never fails that I forget to take a particular shot of something! I'm so excited by the outcome that I forget, I guess.
This was such a fun project! I'm so grateful to have the clients I have. Thank you, clients, for providing the opportunity to work with you!
