I was very excited about the fabric I found and hoped my client would like it as well...
But a few days later I got an email from her telling me that she looked through the idea book that I had left for her (the binder of all my old magazine clippings) and there was nothing in there that inspired her at all - everything was too traditional for her. I was surprised to hear that as most of the rooms in the binder were transitional at best and many leaned more towards a much more modern style. I realized that what I thought she would like was not going to work any longer so I went back to the drawing board.
The client has four black and white chairs that are to stay as well as gray concrete floors. Everything else could be changed. I new she liked lacquer furniture and would love to have everything black and white with gray and red.
I went back to look for new fabrics and put together a couple of mood boards for her.
I had selected quite a few geometric patterns that I felt were the more modern look she wanted and then threw this one in. I thought I could pull off the modern look she wanted with this and I was hoping she would like it. It turned out she did.

While I was searching for a white lacquer credenza, I came across this artwork at Room Service:
The walls in the space are very high and I needed large and dramatic artwork. This was perfect! Not only is Brigitte Bardot right out of my client's "era" ... this portrait could be my client - she looks just like this.
I played around with a couple of mood boards to use for my presentation.
We are still in the planning stages but I like the direction it is going!
