She absolutely loved it. No doubt, no question, no need to sleep on it. It wasn't that Linda didn't like the other choices. She just knows better than to settle for anything less than real love.
|Here's the version in my art room. The pattern shows up more with the darker glaze, but the subtlety of white is equally beautiful, when seen in person. Yes, the trim here is made from burlap and acorns, and yes, the ceiling is quilted.
In my art room, I've done the painted lace technique glazed in moss green, and it goes from ceiling to baseboard, with most of the wall area hidden behind shelving and supplies. For Linda, I suggested we do it in panels, and to balance with the rest of her place, that we do her lace in white, with a green faux finish surrounding the panels. This way she would keep a paler version of the green color she had, which had turned out to be way too dark for her north facing condo unit, while lightening up the walls, for that airy, fresh cottage look.
Linda's thrilled to bits with the end result, and with the tweaks she also hired me to make to her furniture and accessory arrangements, throughout the condo. She knew her taste, and had great pieces, so it was easy to show her a few designer tricks for creating a finished look that flows throughout her home. It was also a whole lot of fun. She's one of those clients who takes good care of those she hires, pampering, praising, promoting, and oozing generosity, and she loves to play, too! I couldn't have asked for a better way to end the summer than creating this mossy, lacy confection for such a sweet soul.
