I'm trying to make decisions for my small laundry room project for the ORC and honestly, because I see so much decorating on a daily basis, I love too many things and can't narrow it down for myself. My current dilemma is the window treatment. This is what I have to work with:
You'd think the sky's the limit, but I'm being sooooo picky. Here's my mindset:
- I want a decorative pattern, something that stands out, designer-y
- I don't need full privacy, but would like a valance or something to come down 1/2 way from the top window
- I could do a faux roman shade
- I''m not sure if treatment should hang from the ceiling
- I do love the white molding of the window to show
- Alot of color or neutral? ( I'm thinking no on neutral...TODAY)
- Layered treatment with woven shade under a topper?
Have you seen this hand stitched detail on this fabric! WOW.
Bethany's opinion of her Mom as the client:
Whew, good thing I love her.... :) She loves everything but will only fire on neutrals, Scandinavian or traditional things. She can get me to fire on something that I'm hemming and hawing over, but as good as she is at execution, she can't seem to do it herself. At least on her laundry room. We've looked at fabrics until we're blue in the face but still she second guesses it. Bottom line, if she was a real life client, she'd better be paying me some good money because she would be a tough one. That brings me to another point. If we had all the money in the world, she would have the most beautiful things. But since we always have a budget in mind for all of our personal projects, we have to get creative. But most things she likes are pretty timeless and she's always been way ahead of the curve.
Nancy's opinion of Bethany as the client:
I absolutely love Bethany's aesthetic. It is fresh and a little different than me. She is
Personal projects are probably the most fulfilling because we can stretch our imaginations and convince each other to do things we otherwise couldn't impress upon a normal client. But even so, I still find myself stuck on this fabric dilemma.
