If you are painting one wall or a whole house it is very difficult to pull everything together at times. A color consult is a great meeting that leaves you with a color sheet designating all choices for all areas being discussed.

Many times I arrive at a new client’s home that just chose one privacy treatment for the entire house and has regrets. Blinds, shutters, duettes, roller shades, vignettes and woven woods are just a few of the options that are available to be a part of your design. There are so many economical choices now for changing up the look and still having consistency from the outside of your home.
Artwork and Photography
The icing on the cake is strategically placing artwork and photography in the newly designed space. Sometimes it is taking some existing artwork and reframing. Rearranging and grouping artwork in a new way can inject new life into a room.
This is where the texture and colors of the fabrics bring in so much elegance and charm. Designing the best treatment and picking the perfect fabrics, trims, hardware, and lining fashions an entire space.
