Even though I feel like I've been doing design for quite a while now, I still pinch myself. Especially when I get to work with highly creative and stylish clients, like Meghan & Nathan. These clients (and friends) out of Portland, introduced me to the design team of Wary Meyers.
Their look is bohemian, colorful, and vintage.
These are the inspiration photos Meghan sent me to describe rooms she loved.
This style is a far cry from what my usual clients request, but that doesn't mean I don't like it. I've only had one other bohemian/vintage client, Julie, and I'm still obsessed with her blush pink dining room! It's not finished yet (still needs rug, window treatments, and chandelier) but working with someone who is totally willing to step out of the box is a special treat for me.
Back to my Portland clients...
We're making changes to a few different rooms, but this room will be getting a full overhaul. Except for the pink sofa. They have lived here for ten years and are ready to update their look.
This is the sofa that will stay. We may make a few changes to the stairs. Meghan and her husband are both artists and loving parents. But I don't think this room fully reflects their style.
We're already talking about possibly adding these pieces to the design:
vintage book ends
Vintage eyeball cross-section by Donald A. Keller
vintage Rahsaan Roland Kirk poster
tatooed pig by Wary Meyers
Like I said, I'm still pinching myself that I get paid to do something I'm passionate about
and help clients live in a space they love.
