And......we made it to Friday.
As a designer...and guys tell me if this is true with you also.....you tend to spend way more time than you can actually bill thinking of ways to perfect a project. I mean I can't really send a client an invoice the size of the national debt just because I couldn't turn it off:)
Kind of like an artist who works on a canvas who layers on the color until it is perfect.
For those of you with obsessive personalities who bleed design....your client thanks you!
I say this because I have been searching and searching to get the fabrics right for this huge project.
This is a large room....
With really high ceilings.....so it has to be warmed up with lots of texture. The kitchen is opposite this area.
Add 2 windows that need 35 yards [yes you read that right] of fabric!
In my opinion just using a solid linen would look flat especially when you are talking about the length of the panel at about 135" so I looked for something with a raised pattern that still read neutral. That will help give them a little depth.
Whew...tall order....hee haw....designer joke.
And you already know that these are the colors of the cabinets.
Here are some of the fabrics that I am playing around with. There are actually 2 sitting areas in this darn space. One facing the kitchen and the other around the fireplace and TV [located to the right of the FP].
Trims that could possibly go on various pillows and upholstery.
Yeah....are you getting dizzy with selections?
I want to punch myself in the face.
Finally we decided on the 2 sofa's and chaise which were ordered this week.
That my friends is how you can get yourself so wound up over a project that your eyes spring open at 4:00 AM.....
