Amid the Blizzard and frightful winter of DC, I had the good fortune to be hired by a lovely new client in the Palisades neighborhood of DC. I strapped on my new uniform footwear of LLBean boots and hopped a snowbank to meet her and her charming home. My client has great taste, and already had a solid foundation of furniture and design direction. She was also raising two young girls and expecting a third baby in the Spring. (read: hands full!) I was brought in to work that foundation into a fabulous finish. The basics were good, just not singing quite yet. .. and she wasn't sure what was missing to make the space look pulled-together and fabulous. Talk about a super client, she made choices quickly and confidently while trusting me and my team when we presented new ideas; like a different window treatment for every window in her kitchen/family room.
It never ceases to amaze me how drapery, paint and a little pattern can transform a space. By Spring, we achieved a sunny new space to welcome their new family member, a boy! Nanotexed fabrics, soft-edged coffee table and chairs on a swivel make this a superior family hangout!
