There is no doubt about it, I love rooms with a story. The kind which tell me about who lives in the space, what they collect, what might be their passions, if they travel, etc. I also love color and pattern. I suppose I wouldn’t be considered a versatile designer if all of these loves weren’t part of my repertoire.
Getting clients to the point of revealing their stories sometimes takes a little nudging. After all, there has been a trend of keeping things pretty “orderly” on many of the most-visited design blogs and online tutelages. Lots of pretty white or neutral with clean lines, graphic patterns and modern leanings. For some, it feels to be a safer way to go. I even have people tell me they head in this direction because they can’t decide or worry that they’ll do something others will judge as “not-current”.
What do you do if that’s not so much your lifestyle or preference? What if you’ve already created a blank canvas and it’s not speaking to your heart? What if you have prized possessions stuffed into a closet? What if you want to create a meaningful place to call “home”?
I say . . . .
And I also say: Vive la différence!
All my best ~ Wanda
