I got my first professional client over the past weekend - I'm so excited I haven't been able to sleep. They're doing all the work, I'm just doing a consult (storyboard suggestions) for her. They have a traditional saltbox home. I'm working on the living room. Small space - 14x14. No focal point other than the 3 (2 on north, 1 on west) windows. They don't have much in the room other than an eclectic mix of mismatched furniture - from a beautiful beige wingback chair to an older navy leather sofa. A beat up tv stand and small tv... and a coffee table. They just recently painted using Martha Stewart's Pebblestone. It's a beautiful colour. I'm focusing on the windows. I think that if you have them, flaunt them - and for lack of other focal points, the windows are it.

The trim is all white. What do you think of the fabric I'm using (in attached pic) for the draperies. They will be straight rod pocket panels - 2 panels per window. The little check in them is almost identical to the colour of the wingback.

Hey, thanks guys!!! That's great feedback! I will definitely get some before, during and after pictures. I'm taking the client shopping on Saturday to Home Outfitters to look at some accent tables.

To answer the question about the colour - yes, am planning to work in the red through pillows and accents.

I always feel like I hog this forum, but I just love to see it busy.I love to read all the posts from everyone!
