An E-consultation ~ Part 2

To continue with the e-consultation I finished this past weekend, the other space we talked about was her family room. This room is open to the kitchen. You can read the background of this room here.

My eyes first landed on the fireplace, as you can see that it, along with the hearth and mantel, takes up a whole wall. The paneling appears to be laminate, but the client indicated that would be coming off. Using the information provided to me, I came up with the following board for the family room.

Prize winner

Chez Valerie Giclee Print
$139 -

Flower Mosaic Print
$219 -

Boxwood Topiaries - Ballard Designs
$49 -

Terracotta Pillar Holders
$25 -

As far as furniture, she basically only needed my suggestion as to an entertainment/media center and some side tables. {The counterstool is for the kitchen area, which is to the left of the first family room picture}.  I suggested either of the round tables pictured. One is from Pottery Barn and the other is from Ballard Designs. She liked the legs on the Ballard one better; they are both the same price.

For the entertainment center, I liked this one from Pottery Barn because it has doors to close off the view of any electronic equipment. This can also be pieced together as it would work for you. It also comes in white, black and a wood tone.

Accessories included topiaries, candlesticks and a new picture for over the fireplace. The red box is a great side table piece and would work well to hold remotes, as well as bringing that Asian feel into this room from the entry.

So there you have it ~ a basic e-consultation!

Congratulations Kathy for being chosen as the designer! I love all your choices as well as the colors. I especially like the Chez Valerie Giclee Print and the dragon. I hope she sends pics to you of the changes so you can share them with us.
