I really love my client’s style… she loves natural materials as much as I do, so I used lots of them which makes it feel really textural and natural- seagrass, linen, burlap, jute rope, driftwood and raw woods mixed with metals… My client really trusted me in the space and I was so excited when she decided to take a risk on the rope chairs!! They’re one of my favorite things in the room and they are sooo comfy & fun!! The curtains also really change the feeling of the room- they’re a soft watery ikat comprised of blues & greens & chartreuse. We had them hung above the arched windows which simplifies all of room’s the lines a bit and makes it feel more classic and architecturally-pleasing.
The sea life prints are a mix of vintage and new prints that I’ve been collecting for a while. Because my client’s so trusting, she was comfortable with me finding all of the pieces over time and hanging them for her, sight unseen. (This is always so much fun for me because I feel like I can stretch my “wings” a little and I can do things that might seem a little disjointed on paper but that look great in real life, which is more how I design my own home. You’ll notice that there are lots of different frames hanging up there and that they’re hung pretty randomly, but I’m happy to report that she loved it. 🙂
And, my client is super-talented… unbeknownst to me until I saw this gorgeous painting she did for the family room:
