Stephanie was starting from scratch in her formal sitting room and knew exactly the look she wanted. Her only problem, how to find each of the elements she loved and pull them together. That’s where we come in! Here is her finish board and letter:
I have used an interior designer in the past to help me update and finish a few rooms in my home of 10 years. I have invested a significant amount of savings into the updating and am wanting to finish out my sitting room within budget. I am willing to purchase quality pieces but am excited to have access to your design advice with out all of the design fees stacking up on me. The room I need help with is my front sitting room. It is the first room my guests step into when entering my home and it has been pushed to the side of my “to-do” remodel list for quite some time now. As for my style, I like to start with classic pieces and invest in quality furniture that will still by stylish if I change things down the road. I am attracted to a more feminine Asian Chinoiserie look, pieces with floral touches and even birds. I am in love with de Gournay’s handpainted wallpaper so if you could incorporate anything that has that look in the room I would love it. Regarding colors, I am attracted to jewel tones but also love classic neutrals, traditional woods and art deco pieces. A bit all over the design style map but that is the direction we went with the other rooms I updated. As you can see by the pictures I am attaching of my home, I have warm wood floors and a soft buttery yellow on my walls. I do not want to repaint as I am pleased with the wall color. Thank you for your help and I am looking forward to seeing your idea.
