Two months ago, I met with a client who wanted to renovate her kitchen and re-decorate her family room, dining room and office and last week we finished up the last installation. I normally would NEVER take on a project with such a tight deadline, but my client already had her cabinet maker lined up and she agreed to take on the bulk of the furniture shopping. A week later, her cabinet maker had backed out and now we only had four weeks to get cabinets ordered and installed. Jennifer Taylor Design to the rescue! Our cabinet maker was able to step in, get the job done and for less money. Reason #462 to hire a designer.
In addition to the kitchen, the client wanted to update the furniture in the main living spaces. To be honest, there was stained oak and brown leather furniture everywhere! To keep Mr. Client happy, we kept the leather sofa, but everything else in the family room was changed. The client had found the chairs and television cabinet at a local furniture store and really liked them, so those were purchased and JTD did the rest. Oh, did I mention we also did a fireplace makeover?
The dining room got a complete new look and by doing ready-made drapery panels, we were even able to get the windows dressed. The furniture was also purchased at a local furniture store, so it was delivered within a week or two. I'm not usually a fan of purchasing all matching pieces, but the two-tone wood finish and the fact that the client loved it sold me on the idea.
I wasn't able to get photos of the office as my installer was still hanging art when I left, but if you are wondering where my client put the rest of that brown leather furniture...
