I remember very clearly a post by Lori a few weeks ago where she had presented a design board to a client and then her follow-up the next day was discussing the importance of a Plan B. How smart!
Since I had been playing around with two different versions of my design board, I decided to consider this my Plan B for a hypothetical client.
I started with this...
The "client" really loved the look and feel of this board, and really was keen on the Susani Trellis by Lee Jofa. They weren't sold on the use of the navy. Instead they preferred using more of the green in this fabric, so then I came up with Plan B...
Here is what I changed up from yesterday:
- I added a new paint color to the background, Urban Putty from Sherwin Williams.
- I switched out the blue paisley and blue circle fabrics for a green velvet to be used on the bench seating and Betwixt in biscuit for some pillows or even a large bolster. I also added another new pillow from Etsy seller Kyoozi that brings in some more of that pretty gold found throughout.
- I also switched out the grey for the green arabesque rug that is part of the Genevieve Gorder line for Capel.
The rest of my sources can be found on my design board from yesterday.
I really didn't intend on this board to pan out to be so literal for the holidays, but it just worked out that I also added in a few pieces of holiday decor.
So what are your thoughts on Plan B? Are you more of a green or a blue person? (Or neither? that's okay too)
Thanks again for the feedback from yesterday. I'm still in the learning process of creating and mastering the design board process, so all of your tips and comments go a long way. I really appreciate you taking the time out to read and to comment.
I'm going to be sharing this board over at Cottage & Vine. Rene is hosting her Room By Room series and this time around it's dining rooms, how appropriate! Go on over and check it out if you have a chance.
Tonight is another design class and we're focusing on furniture. I'll be back soon to share the details.
