I have a virtual client project to share with you today!
This virtual interior design project was for a super sweet family who wanted to focus on the furniture layout (floor plan) to maximize the use of the space, add seating and color. They sent me photos of the space and I could see that the bones of this room were quite lovely but not only did we need a good layout, we needed better storage for toys and books – and color!

This room is the main room – and needed to work for 3 children playing, tv watching, reading and relaxing as well as small group entertaining for Mom and Dad. A true multi event space!
eDesign project for My Client
Virtual Interior Design
I sent her a digital design questionnaire asking lots of questions. I customized the questionnaire after I saw photos of the room. My client wanted to keep most of her existing furniture.
The revised layout included removing the cabinet next to the fireplace, and this instantly opened up the space! Then they agreed to slim down the amount of books on display and move the big bookcase to the basement. Once that bookcase was removed, we could shift the seating area over and make room for toy storage behind the sofa. With the bookcase gone, you could “see” into the room and it felt more welcoming. We kept a nice reading chair in the corner near the fireplace and added two smaller chairs (that were from another room) to create a nice seating group with the sectional they already had. Then multiple baskets and a new and smaller open bookshelf between the two windows.
This was such a fun family to work with. The client had great inspiration photos! She wanted to work with her existing gray sectional, which was in great shape and practical. She wanted to paint a new wall color and add pops of color thoughout. She had pinned a few different color schemesand styles she liked but once I saw photos of nearby rooms, I knew we needed to go with a Gray, Blue and Terracotta color palette to pull things together. Then we added storage and a great rug to tie all the color palette together.
As they waited for things to arrive, they painted the entire room with a beautiful color I chose for them.
They love their new room! I am thrilled and so are they!
We added a new mirror, accessories and throw pillows too!

I love working WITH my clients. Helping them sort through all those pretty ideas floating around in their head. This means lots of questions and discussion about practicality, storage, and what looks good.
I would love to work with you too! If that sounds like something you’d like to talk about, feel free to schedule a Discovery Call – no pressure, just a phone call to make sure we are a good fit.
