We finished my client's entry and I think it looks great. It is the most traditional thing I have ever done in terms of color, finishes, shapes, and accessories. To my eyes, it is almost completely tame and colorless, because design is like porn and violence, the more you see of it, the more you are numb. But to my client, who is new to design and just discovering her "design voice", it is colorful and bright and not the calm and soothing look she was going for. So the whole back corner with the round table and the moth prints is going to be scrapped. We will try something completely new. That's why this is a lifelong process, and not a two day race. I always say your home should look like you, not your designer. This entry doesn't look like either one of us. Back to the drawing board!
So since the entry will look completely different eventually, I can show you these pics of the way it is now. I also include a pic of the dining room, which still has to have accessories, and a host/hostess patterned chair. But we love the ivory chairs we did and the chandelier with the leaves in iron.
What do you guys think?
