New Client: Classic & Refined Living Room Design Plan


Natural, Classic & Refined Living Room Design Plan

I am so giddy about this one.  It’s a big one – 10 rooms total (living, dining, kitchen, master, guest, craft & 4 kid rooms).  The house is currently under construction as the family is adding a second story to the existing house.  It’s been a dream of a project so far.

One of the things I’ve enjoyed about the client is that they were very specific about what they want.  Often times clients have a hard time choosing the style that best suits them, and while this isn’t an issue at all, it makes for a smooth process when the client clearly knows what they like and don’t like.

From the client: The downstairs is living areas, dining, master bed and bath, kitchen, guest room and craft room. We want the living/dining/kitchen areas to really flow together aesthetically.  Style keywords for downstairs — REFINED, CALM, CLASSIC, NATURAL.  For upstairs in the kid bedrooms I think we can add in more of a MOD BOHO vibe with layers of color, etc.”

Yep, yep and yep.  We started with the living, which is the main hub of the downstairs.  A few inspiration images that we especially loved:

And the inspiration board that I presented:

I’ve found that presenting an inspiration board before the actual design plan makes for a smooth presentation.  The goal of this step is to ensure that we are on the same page.  After approval on the inspiration board, which includes the color palette and overall style of the space, comes the design board with all pieces that I source for the space.

We are in the process of making a few tweaks to the LR plan, but overall, they loved it.  I was really happy with how it turned out and literally can’t wait for pieces to start coming in.

I also highlighted some of the key ideas:

It goes without saying that I am excited out of my mind for this one.  Also, I know I have been posting about design plan after design plan lately.  I am hoping to finish up several projects soon and get them photographed!!!
