Shawnee Project


This is another project I am working on right now. We will call it the Shawnee project.  My client is a mature woman who leans a little more to the traditional side of the spectrum.  So, I wanted to semi-stay in her comfort zone while freshening/lightening things up considerably.   My client (like myself) is vertically challenged, and we needed a sofa that fit her petite proportions without being dinky.   Enter the Crosby sofa from West Elm.  It's modern without being too stark of a contrast for the rest of the more traditional design.  It's a welcome update from it's super traditional, red plaid predecessor.   The existing palate was pretty dark and heavy.  I wanted to lighten things up, bring in an airy feeling.  The double layered sheers will breeze things up quite a bit and the rug is traditional without feeling stuffy.  The artwork is my favorite thing in the room.  Surprising I know.  It's just so soothing, and the massive scale will keep it modern in tone. 

This is just a preliminary board.  Things aren't set in stone yet.  The coffee table is still up for debate as are many of the details.  But, this is just a look into my little head, and gives you an idea of where we are (hopefully) headed.  I'm enjoying this project much more than I thought I would considering the traditional feel the client wanted to keep.  Looking forward to seeing how this space shakes out.

'Til next time...
