Sometimes there is the client that just needs a little help with their home and they don’t have a large budget. These can be very rewarding and appreciating clients because they have already tried to do their home design on their own and know that they have failed. They really appreciate a designer’s knowledge and expertise.
This client had already attempted the design of their new home on their own and they were very unhappy with the results and called me to help them.

Living Room After:
They were trying to go for a French Country style but they ended up with a living room was overcrowded and didn’t have the proper scale and balance, one of the main reasons someone may be unhappy with the design of a home and not know why after they have spent a lot of money buying furniture they love.
We got rid of one sofa and repurposed it in another room and added two comfy chairs. I also designed new window treatments to hang over the transom window, which I do in the majority of cases adding height to the room.
