Project "Ma & Pa Downtown Pad"

This one is coming along nicely. I mentioned in a previous post that I am decorating two condos, in the same building, for a couple of very high maintenance clients (kidding, well sort of?) - my parents and friend of 25 years.

Project "Ma & Pa's Downtown Pad" (catchy name heh) is coming along very quickly and I'm lovin it. I'm a bit obsessed with the colour palette blue, white, grey with hits of brass. To be honest I did have to convince the "Pa" side of this project to go this direction as he was more into over stuffed couches with rolled arms kinda thing. I assured him we could do comfort and style. I mean if you're going to be in Yaletown you need a bit of modern in your life.

Here is the design board I created for them and so far we've got the rug, couch and blue chairs. Some of the items are a bit hard to see but I also found this amazing owl print that I really, really hope they buy. I want to do a painted wallpaper and I also found some awesome vintage chairs for the table that just need a little TLC. I love the mix of texture in this room and thinking this is pretty much how I'm going to decorate if we ever flippin sell our house (sorry, we've had so many showings this past week I'm getting a bit bitter!).

Some real live shots to come of this project soon I hope! Enjoy....
