Before and After- My First Project

In September, I started on this journey that has blossomed into Dwell by Cheryl.  I began with a couple of clients and have learned so much in the process. 

If you've perused the site you've probably seen the pictures in my portfolio, but what you haven't seen is where those projects began.  My very first project began with a non-functional room that the homeowner wanted to use as a quite serene prayer room that could double as a bedroom for the granddaughter. 

Here's where we began.  Sorry for the fuzzy cell photos, I forgot the camera; rookie mistake. 





The client had a house full of furniture and accessories so it really was just a matter of bringing it all together.  I have to admit that as a newbie, I broke one of the cardinal rules of home decorating for clients; I put together a plan before meeting with the client.

This is a draft of what I took to our initial meeting....


Big mistake.  After meeting with the client and being informed that an all white room was what was hoped for, I went back to the drawing board and came up with this idea board (my very first).

Which turned into this....



And, when it was all said and done, this was the finished product.

I still have so much to learn, but I'm enjoying every moment.
