Weekly blog post? Let's do this
Is Thursday a good day for a regular weekly post?
Over the hump, kinda bored, but we're not into the Friday wrap-up yet?
You tell me.
Anyway, this is a quicky. Right before the holiday, a beloved client asked if we could refresh her eldest daughter's room as a Christmas present. Well, you know I LOVE doing girls' rooms. So I met with the 11 year old (and her mom), and we decided on lavender walls and green as one of the secondary colors. She already had a white jenny lind bed and side table.
Here are two of the sketches I sent their way.
When you are skipping custom things, you're at the mercy of the market for color palette. Luckily I found plenty to work with.
This scheme gets its fun from the bright rug. I pulled the chartreuse for our green then mostly neutrals and a little pop of hot pink. They have a pair of small sclae tufted chairs already that will move out of the living room as we bring that project into being.
But I wasn't sure how girly my client wanted to go. she is also a hockey player, after all. I gave her this version, with lots of green and some hits of teal. Still feminine, but a little tougher around the edges. Love that suzani chair, too (an overstock find.)
Apparently the first one was a hands down winner, and I can't wait to see it all done!
So tell me: do you like "design sketch" posts?
