Get the look

When I design a home for a client with my design firm Marmalade, I often like to present them with a couple of options for at least some of the rooms. Different color schemes, pieces, or simply just a slightly different vibe. I always have my number one pick, but I  want to make sure that when they choose something, it’s what they really love the most.  I generally make mood boards, to go with images and fabrics, as it seems to be an easy way to share a “look”, sometimes I even do what I call my 2-minute drawings.

Here is a bedroom design for a family in NYC — this is the design option they didn’t choose for their bedroom.

It has large modern damask wallpaper, and a Weinrib cotton dhurrie.

Here are some of the pieces I really love. Kind of all glamorous, bohemian and chic at the same time.

Tartufo chandelier

Crazy about this chandelier!

Paddy Lamp

Love the dark teal color.

Black KEY Bedding

Pagoda Headboard in this case in a custom color, bold green. You can e-mail us and we’ll make it in a number of different fabrics. This summer we are photographing my headboard line and it will be available in many more colors.

Grace Mirror

A sweet jewel toned mirror. I need to design a bedroom somewhere with this in it. A gem.

Mid century modern bench

This bench I added just for the blog post, because I just found it. It’s crazy cool!

Are you perhaps a designer? What do you present your clients with?

  1. Gorgeous bedroom design. Love it. I really like the idea of the green headboard with the teal lamps. I hope they share photos of the completed bedroom with the other option because I bet it is stunning.

  2. I don't always do a board but I should. It really gives them a better sense of how the room is going to look. This one is beautiful…..can't believe they didn't choose it:)

  3. Good site you've got here.. It's hard to find good quality writing like yours these days.

    I really appreciate people like you! Take care!!
