"Design in the City: Part Two"

If you've been following my blog for a while, you probably recall me posting HERE about my first distance decorating client in NYC.  She agreed to be my guinea pig and we came up with a plan that gave her some direction in terms of where she should head with the design. 


My First Distance Project Idea Board

Well, while in NYC last week I had a chance to stop by and check out the progress.  How cool!  I was pleased to see that things were coming along.   She's fully utilized the color scheme and has been able to purchase a sofa, a rug and throw pillows. 



She decided on a more practical sofa selection than the white, but the rug and pillows she selected are almost dead ringers to the ones I proposed.

As you can imagine in an NYC apartment, storage is a must.  So she's added a storage cabinet adjacent the bathroom to store linens and toiletries. 

I also loved the dress form turned purse rack.


I originally suggested adding in some black and white damask.....


And much to my pleasure, it has found its way into the room as bedding.

 I was also able to measure for draperies and have suggested that I get yellow draperies made for her using the same material used for the ones found HERE only in yellow. 

And finally, as luck would have it later that day while shopping I ran into this perfectly hued chest of drawers.  She actually already has one, but I really think it would be a good idea to add a little more color to the space by painting it. 


We were also able to come up with a few additional ideas.  Like adding some pink painted frames to the mix for wall art. Similar to these....

Primitive and Proper
And solving the subway tiled small bathroom storage issue by hanging baskets on command hooks.

In this case and as with most of us, there are always more projects than there are resources, so this one will come together slowly over time.  Of course, I think that's half the fun.  I'm just glad I was able to help get things started.  Are you interested in Distance Decorating?  Read more HERE and feel free to contact me at dwellbycheryl@yahoo.com
