Eun emailed me for an on-consultation because she had some questions about colour as well as decorating her living room. She wanted to buy a new sofa.
The yellow on the walls and orange drapery were already here when she moved in and she liked the existing colours.
Notice her carpet is pink beige but we decided to ignore it. An area rug solved that problem. Remember two months ago in my newsletter when I posted about ‘Two ways to work with carpet you hate‘? This is a great example of how to do it. Two colours, one + a neutral is how it’s done.
Eun and I went on-line together during the call and picked out coffee tables and lamps. She had a long list of things to buy when we were finished and I think almost the next day she emailed me photos of everything she had purchased, ‘a woman of action’, I said.
She also had big walls to fill so I showed her this image from Eileen Kathryn Boyd (below):

I told her to get some RIBBA frames from IKEA, paint them orange and get some custom matting to create an art wall. She did a great job, this collection is in her den.
I love her dog, so adorable!! Here’s what she said in the end:
‘Maria definitely knows her stuff! Maria was able to give me her honest opinion when it mattered the most. Things like back splashes and choosing the right colors for each room was easier with Maria’s expertise. Thank you for the inspiration and the guidance in helping me design my house!’
Have a great weekend my lovelies! xo Maria
