I thought I’d share a couple of design boards I made for a “virtual” decorating client recently. Virtual clients are ones who don’t live locally, but we still work together to decorate a room using the wonders of technology.
We start with a design board, like the one above, that incorporates existing and new pieces of furniture. Once I know that we’re heading in the right direction for the client’s taste, I send source lists and work on a furniture placement plan for the space.
If you take a closer look, you can see the small tweaks from one board to the next. Suzanne was pretty happy with the original board, but wanted to see if we could add more yellow–so I changed the grey bergére chair to a yellow one.
We started work on the furniture placement plan, and there are quite a few other (smaller) items that I’ve got her shopping for, as well. It think it’s going to look amazing when it’s finished, and hopefully she’ll let me share photographs so you all can see it, too.
Yellow Striped Chair (in butter/white canopy stripe)
Leopard Rug (5′ x 8′)
Grey Trellis Rug (6′ x 9′)
Pillow Covers: Chiang Mai Dragon, Yellow Trellis, Red Leopard/Cheetah

Botanical Prints: Buy here, or save a ton and buy this book and use gold frames from Dollar Tree (see this post for more details)
Gold Framed Chalkboard: Easy to DIY using a vintage frame and gold and chalkboard spray paint, but can be bought here
I hope you enjoyed a glimpse into how we approach the design process. By the way, Amy isn’t accepting any new design clients right now. I am, but I do have a 2-4 week waiting list (email for details at email@example.com). Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for stopping by!

All three designs are beautiful! I love the yellow stripe chair ~ of course if it costs more, that’s what I choose. 🙂 My champagne tastes do not mesh with my beer budget! You’ve done a wonderful job on this and I hope she will share photos later.
