But, the client also stated she didn't "like high end or designer things." Wohn-wahn. Not exactly what a Fluffer Extraordinaire like me wants to hear. I mean, don't you hire a decorator to get a look that stands above what the Big Box stores or websites can offer? Not that it need be high end OR designer, but one, especially cool item can often carry a room - elevate it. And, let's face it, such things are often hard to come by in the mass-produced market. I was kinda baffled, and worried I wouldn't be able to knock out something that was true to my creative spirit.
So, I sourced items from vendors the client seemed comfortable with, and did the best I could to add a touch of what I felt was true to my brand's aesthetic (whatever that all means - it sounds good). And then, I submitted it - and mentally walked away. Sometimes we don't get the chance for the grand slam of rooms, and this board won't win any Wearstler-like accolades, but it meets the client's needs, and I guess that's all that matters.
