Most designer can see an entire room completed by looking into a blank room with nothing in it. However, for homeowners its difficult to see where all your ideas, planning and money are going. This app I found is a tool I use to create a visual for the room I design and give clients an idea of what it will look like. For the most part it reasure the clients and that most imporant part of my design.
This wallpaper by Farrow & Ball is one of my favorites, it combines both feminine and masculine feeling. It’s a large enough pattern that it could easily be used on one wall with coordinating paint on the other walls or what the heck lets use it all over, its beautiful…. “Aspire to Beautiful Living”
It might seem overwhelming to most people to select paint for an entire 5 bedroom house however, for me it’s all about asking lots of questions. Getting to know my clients is the most important part of my job and that’s where the INSPIRATION comes from…Below is a picture of wallpaper which will be the main patterns in my clients home. It’s most important for them to have yellow and gold to bring the love of colour and their culture into their environment. I love these 2 patterns together, one in the family room and other one in the hallway.

I have a new client who was trying to decorate her living room for about 3 years. After much frustration and returning items she asked for my help. During our first meeting she asked me “how do you get started” and “where do you get your inspiration from”… Most of my inspiration for my design concepts comes from you, the client. To start I ask things like who are you, what do you like, what is your style, what colours do you like or dislike, how do you use the space etc.
After that inspiration usually starts with a colour and pattern. When I have an idea of colour you want to use in the room, as an example the rug colour “Teal” above then I have something to start the décor process. What else was needed in this room were draperies, pillows, wall unit, accessories and lighting.
But don’t get scared when a designer ask you this question… “What is your budget for the entire space”? This is the most important question because it tells me where to shop and how much to spend on a sofa and everything else. After the first meeting I’m off and running to create a décor concept and when that is approved I can give you a timeline when the room will be completed.
Here is a living room done with the colour of the year – Marsala. Dramatic but a warm this colour would go very well with any neutral, either browns, taupe and cream because the colour has an hue of brown or contracts with any grey. Keep your eye out for this colour in everything from décor to lipstick.
