Putting a room together starts with inspiration and usually that starts with interviewing the client. Getting a sense of what the clients likes or not is what I call the first consultation. This interview is very important for a designer to get a sense of how you use the room, who lives in the house, colours you like, style etc. etc. This living room design on the left was a referral from a pass client, which is always so very gratifying. The couple wanted a family room with a formal but relaxed feeling to both entertain and enjoy with extended family when they visit. I love it when a plan comes together.
