Traditional Feminine!

I had the pleasure of meeting with a great new client a few weeks ago. She has a fantastic heritage home in Vancouver and is looking to re-vamp her living room. I love older homes with character. Let's be honest - anything you put in them looks good. Maybe I shouldn't say that as it makes it seem like I'm of no value:-) To be more honest, every time I see one of these houses I want one. Sure there's something nice about new, but you just can't beat character.

Her style is more on the traditional side...I'd say 'Traditional Feminine.' I'm liking this idea of naming peoples style as it makes it easier when choosing items of what to say yes and no to. And, I just think it's sort of fun to do.

I sent her a couple mood boards, and she loves a lot of it...woot, woot (or is it whoop, whoop - someone please tell me!). We are meeting tomorrow to review and get it all going. I'm excited as I think this space has some wow potential. Here are the mood boards and already I've changed quite a few things for our review session tomorrow but the feel is staying the same. 

I'll keep you posted how it goes. Enjoy...

Fabric on furniture will change. I'd like to do those cubes in the pattern fabric and match her end dining chairs in the same. The desk chair is from CB2 - one of my faves right now.

Decided not to go with the safari rug (though I LOVE it). Greys, whites, creams with pops of chartreuse. The reading chair in the corner is Restoration Hardware - they actually have some great prices on furniture which I know is kinda shocking!
