The master bedroom got the most subtle of changes, but it really is better.. I showed you the picture after I changed out the drapes. You can see that post here. This is the way I had it.
She edited some of the pillows and added my mink throw. It seemed to warm the space up and it really did make the settee look more inviting.
The throw helped to ground the settee and made it look as though you could lay back and snuggle up for some quiet time and a good book. She's right, it does help tell a story better than all the pillows.
Another area she suggested a small change was in the dining area on the buffet. This is what I had.
When I did my fall display on the dining table, I didn't change the buffet, while there is nothing wrong with it, it could be much better. This is how I changed it out.
Plus it also compliments the rest of the living area.
Another small change she suggested was to swap out and change a couple of pillows on the sofa in the family room. Here is what I had.
Instead of all different pillows, she repeated the floral pillow to add more interest to the room. I was emphasising the check pillow since I have the check runner on the breakfast table and wanted to continue the check theme from the living/dining area. Her comment was the check still carries through, but now this room has a pattern and identity of it's own while also complimenting the other room.
Her best suggestion was to look at a room from all angels, then walk away and come back the next day or in a few hours and look at it again from all angels, really paying attention to all the details.
It's so fun to have a professional to learn from, I had a great time and really enjoyed their visit.
