The room was decorated by Lindsay Ellis Beatty.
Bravo to Lindsay.....she wasn't afraid to commit.
Since we are talking about Jim Thompson no.9.....here is another little pretty I brought home from ADAC the other day. It is called Enter the Dragons.
Here is what the print looks like.
It is so dang "Palm Beachy". With all of it's mint green badness.
Could. You. Die.
Speaking of color people....
The new issue of HOF is beeeeuuuutiiiful. I have it on my ipad....so I can savor every gorgeous picture and read all of the articles.
Who is proud of Janell???
OK......sometimes it is fun to see the inner workings of design decisions.
I had about 10 pictures re-matted for a client. They were all ugly. Not the pictures but the mats. I was trying to keep them pretty neutral. The problem was that the backgrounds of the pictures/etchings were different colors.
Some were very yellow, some pink. It was crazy. I used a small border of gray on a few to help with the difference of color between the mat and the image.
I laid them out to see which arrangement I liked the best.
Random...no. I know my client and she would not dig this.
This is better but I had to tweak the middle row.
This works for me.
This is in her husbands office. Gotta keep him happy right :)
We hung her old curtain rods. We pulled off the 100.00@yd Schumacher swags, it was painful. No can do boo boo.
I am so glad gold is back in style!
Instead we are going to go with navy taffeta silk panels. Here is the rug that is going in there. Don't hate on the accessories....can't really hook up this room until we install curtains, rug, and chair has been recovered.
This one was in her dining room. We get new for in there...:)
So there you go. It's a process people. You know that.
I went to Scott's today. Made it home with only a $5.00 purchase.
Beach countdown....I'll be there in 48 hours...
