As a designer you have to learn how to compromise with clients in order to create a space that reflects both your concept and your client’s taste beautifully. This means you often don’t get to use ALL the fabrics, colors and items that you initially pull for a room. So I often have fun just coming up with pretend concepts on my own when I feel inspired. It’s like sketching but in 3D. :)
Yesterday I was looking through one of our fabric bins and came across this GORGEOUS Schumacher Indian Arbre that I have looooooooved since I pulled it but have not gotten to use yet for anyone. So I started pulling things to go with it and came up with this scheme in blues, violets and creamy whites. This is basically how we pull together schemes for our clients on our office floor!
