Above is a grouping of fabrics and finishes that represent the way I typically start a project. From here I will pull photos and ideas to see which direction to take it. Once I have that done (sometimes it is the hardest part to find an image that conveys what I want the space to say) I work on the furniture layout and then onto the furnishings themselves. The final step in my designing process is to put the fabrics and finishes on the proper pieces. It takes a while to get from design to the finished product, but it is really nice to get there!
This project actually has a few more rooms but I did not like the way my photos looked so I had a limited selection! If anyone knows of a good commercial photographer in Northern California I would love a good recommendation.
On a totally separate note my friend Molly Wood is having a One Kings Lane sale starting this morning! Stop by and check out her goodies!
