"Coastal One Day Design Plus"

Last year I began offering a new service called One Day Design Plus (ODD+).  It was born out of a need to offer an option for those seeking expedited decorating services for spaces that can be easily pulled together without custom selections and major furnishings. The bonus to ODD+ is that in addition to providing all the benefits of the One Day Design service, it also includes additional designer sourcing and an installation to bring it all together.  I shared my first ODD+ project HERE

I'm currently working on a ODD+ project that we'll install later this month.  I'm really excited as the client and I have really similar tastes.  We'll be creating a relaxing retreat for the family's guests.  We are essentially starting from scratch. 

We toyed with the idea of painting but in the interest of time we've decided to hold off on it.   The walls are a neutral tan and I think we can make them work.  We'll be adding drapery, bedding, wall art, lighting and accessories.  We'll also be reupholstering the existing wing chair.  The client already had a pretty clear idea of what she envisioned for the space, so I took the initiative to put together a plan prior to meeting.  I wanted to ensure that we were on the same page.  Thankfully, we were. 

The project began with my original One Day Design service.  It's essentially six hours with me accessing the space, moving things around, shopping what you have and then hitting the road to see what we can score.

We hit the jackpot at just a couple of locations and decided we were off to a good start. 

So good in fact, she was fine with me taking things from there.

For the past two weeks, I've been shopping up a storm, making certain we have everything we need for the project.  As a courtesy to my clients, I don't typically share retail sources for their projects, but here are a couple of items we'll be incorporating.

They'll be a bit of a coastal theme.  I'm working to keep it subtle and tasteful, because themes can sometimes get a little out of hand.  Know what I mean? 

In addition to the ODD+ project, I'll be beginning another kid's room this weekend.  I'm so excited!  This one is a teenage boy's room and I'm totally up for the challenge of defining his design style.  Why should the girls have all the fun?  Until next time...
