Design A-Peele Room Redo

As I mentioned in my Questions answered post, I would love to start a company helping people decorate their homes on a dime using what they already have.  Well I actually have 2 clients already!  I am pretty excited. 

My first client is Jennifer.  Here is her living room.  She lives in an apartment so painting and such has to be a minimum.






Jennifer and I talked and she really wants her home to feel light and airey. I made her a plan she can use for the next few months to accomplish her decorating goals.  She can buy everything at once or wait and buy a few things each month, that way it's not overwhelming!  Here is the plan.

 * This is the look we're going for.


We have a few projects in store for us.  They include making some art out of canvas and a great printed fabric.  Taking everything off of the surfaces so we can start fresh with accessories.  Recovering some pillows.  Making a wall of frames into something totally and completely chic.  Using burlap to cover a lamp...just trust me ;)  And lastly, using some GREAT plates from ikea, we are going to make an arrangment using the canvas art.

Congratulations! That's so exciting. I absolutely love the inspiration pic for the room, you have a good eye for pulling things that are complimentary to each other and not necessarily predictable.

We really are so alike! Wow! I have a interior decorating cert...I too want to help people re-decorate on a dime (like I do with my own home) I don't have time right now, but someday this is what I want to do! Maybe in the far off future we can go into a gig together!:) I don't know though...I am way too all over the place to just focus on one thing. ugh! I love way too much! can't wait to see what you do with her place!
