A year-and-a-half ago, I received an email that took me by surprise. A bubbly girl from California wanted more information about my e-design services. What shocked me is that she found me on Instagram. I was just getting started as a decorator, and I couldn't believe she singled me out from all of the other talented designers out there.
We scheduled a phone call and chatted non-stop for an hour. We were instant besties, or shall I say INSTAbesties. Over the course of several months, we worked together to improve her living room, dining area, hallway, bedroom, and master bathroom. Today, I'll only be sharing the living/dining room reveal.
things we needed to fixed ASAP:
- The paint color: the gray was dragging the living room down
- The dining table & chairs
- The credenza: it was too small and too tall for such a big TV
- We needed lots of lighting
- The white chair had to go!
items she wanted to keep:
- The couch
- The coffee table
Fast forward to a year after our initial phone call. I was traveling to California for a wedding and was going to be in the LA area. My client, now virtual best friend, and I got the chance to meet in real life! She graciously let me stay at her home, and I was able to take pictures of our progress. So without further ado...
