Summer Theme continued…
No shortage of whimsy around here in the summer months. This week had me personally stretching fabric from Raoul Textiles to the backs of these fishy valances, conceived by the need to hide blinds in a clients livingroom. We got them up the day before a photo shoot the client had lined up. I have to thank the talented carpenters from Pimental Contractors for cutting out all those fish, painting the valances and getting them hung in the nick of time.
Of course, the dream client is the necessary ingredient to a dream job and this client has a strong opinion (that’s always a plus when designing and decorating a home) and the guts to go out on a limb (another important ingredient to design success). This remodel is waiting for a coverlet in the guest bedroom, and that’s about it. Then is done. It’s always a little sad to finish… who knows maybe we’ll get to do another one someday.
