Keeping to a neutral color scheme makes this space appear much bigger.
What we do know is that we are just as happy to get this project wrapped up, given that we had but three weeks to pull it all off including cabinetry. Yes, well actually a bit less than three weeks... certainly not three days... nor three hours as some on HG-TV would have you believe. We painted, papered, hung fixtures + track lighting, delivered the upholstery, thru our the rugs + installed her TV so should could watch LPGA tournaments on the big screen on the first night of occupancy. Not too shabby, eh?
The concrete counter makes a great bar top.
What else made us happy as the design team was the great rapport we had with she and partner. It makes a difference when client and designer truly have a great time with one another.
We will say it helps when a client says "you know better then me on such things." And it of course helps when the client has a great eye for art and let us "select" pieces that would work well in this residence from their Chicago condo. Sweet.
So who did have the best time? By far, we did. It was a challenge to assemble all the parts + pieces together in a cohesive plan and meet our scheduled installation date. And while we are still buttoning up the details + finishing the punch list, we're happy to know that we made this client happy again once more. But the best part? Just how much she appreciated all our efforts. ;-)
• Psst. Next project we do, Ms. S....we're definitely going need an extra few days. You good with that?
