This was a very exciting and unique job. I was approached by a friend of mine who’s parents were leaving town for the weekend to celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary. She provided me with a budget and trusted me and my painter to come in over the weekend and do the following:
-Paint and Redecorate Guest Room and Bath using existing and new furniture and accessories.
-Paint Kitchen, Living Room and Main Level Bath & ReDecorate all.
-Furniture and Accessory RE-Placement throughout the Formal Sitting Room & Formal Dining Room
As we stood inside, eagerly waiting their return, she and her husband finally drove up to the house. As they were away celebrating, they had no idea what was going on in their home. As she opened the door, I greeted her. She said, “Who are you?”
I laughed and said, “I’m the decorator!”
As she looked around her “new” home, her mouth dropped wide open. She didn’t say a word.
Honestly… I thought she hated it. But I remained silent hoping this wasn’t the case…
After walking through her entire home, which had been drastically changed, she decided to take a seat in her new chair in her newly decorated guest room and with tears in her eyes she said,
“I love it. I am so glad you did this. I can finally invite family to stay with us knowing they will feel welcomed and comfortable.
Thank you so much.”
Then I cried. 🙂 Because this client is EXACTLY why I do this.
It makes people happy and have a sense of pride in their home.
Happy Client 🙂 Mission Accomplished.
These clients were unforgettable! HE was traditional, SHE was contemporary.
After a rather long consultation and many questions later, they decided to hand over the reins.
Not an easy job for most decorators but I was up for the challenge!
Feel free to visit my FB page and see SEVERAL before and after photos of this client!
Another investment made by a client who felt her “things” weren’t in the right place.
I arrived sometime in the morning and had her living, family and formal sitting room changed around completely by the afternoon.
She fell in love with her “things” all over again. It’s like it was love at first sight.
This client asked me to lighten up her space. She said she felt the colors left her feeling sad and tired all of the time. So we chose a bright new palette and added a few new accessories to tie it all together!
I completed this job in roughly 10 hours. And the difference it made in her life was priceless.
She was so much happier and loved being in her home.
This particular client asked me to redo her master bedroom.
First, I chose several existing accessories from other places in her home. Then she provided me with a budget to select for her a new comforter set. We also brought up her lovely vintage settee to place at the food of her bed.
A few weeks passed and I asked her how she was enjoying her new space and she replied,
“Teresa, the bed is so beautiful that I try to sleep as still as I can so that I don’t mess it up.”
