We don’t always get to start with a clean slate…
In fact, more times than not,
there are lots of existing pieces in a room that need to be incorporated in a new design.
"This can be a challenge
as I like to think of it,
This week, I completed a redesign of a master bedroom in a high rise condo
that was a fresh combination of my client’s own pieces and
new ones I chose to mix in.
The room had all the essentials: a headboard, rug, dresser and tables.
But the neutral walls and bedding didn’t relate to the strong red rug.
And the furniture all matched, making it way too heavy and serious.
It needed a facelift – just the right design elements
to tie everything together and make it more interesting.

I started with this fabulous linen fabric and built the concept around it .
It already feels brighter, doesn’t it?
Add blue walls and some key furnishings and now the room starts to come back to life!
Now it has "breathing" room.
I’ll share the rest of the room with you next time.
There’s a surprise element that takes it up a notch!
