I love my clients! I think they are the best people on earth.
Last night a long-distance client sent me photos of her powder room that we had done together. I have never set foot in this home….she lives in another state. It doesn’t matter where you live when you’re meant to work together.
Anyway, seeing the results was the best present I could have asked for. (It’s better than Christmas….shhhh).
In her email she said:
So, these pictures don’t do it justice. I couldn’t get where I wanted because the bathroom is so small! I am so in love with the room though! I wish you could see it in real life!! I hope I did everything the way I was supposed to. Haha! Thanks again for making my house so beautiful!
So, without further ado, let’s show you the space.
Here’s the before pictures. The flooring had to stay for budget. The vanity was beautiful, so we wanted to keep it. She wanted a more stylish mirror and new lights. The marble countertop was cracked and needed to be replaced. I loved her faucet and sink, but it couldn’t be saved when the countertop was taken out. Last but not least, she wanted some personalization and style.
I love powder bathrooms. They are small and you can afford to take risks. We batted around ideas of wallpaper and painting the vanity, but in the end we went for a deep, rich paint color. These were the final selections for the room:
How much detail do interior designers have to get into?
It varies, but here are three more things I’ll share to show you the level of thought that goes into a design.
I drew this elevation for her so she could see how it would all look together.
I also painted the abstract art. I had a piece picked out, but it wasn’t the right size. Also, I wanted the art to match perfectly with her room because it’s such a small space, so I literally used the same color in the painting as are on the walls. That way it “faded” into the room.
And I drew the backsplash detail of her countertop. Here are the after photos!
The really big award goes to my client!! She was so trusting with the process, she was the one who handled getting the tradesman in to replace the counter, redo plumbing, and redo some of the electrical work. Huge round of applause because that’s not an easy thing to do. Tell her she’s awesome in the comment section.
Happy Friday Everyone!
