My clients always ask me, "What is the first piece we need to pick out?" Truthfully, any item can act as a starting point. In this case, Alana and I were all about this rug. We knew we wanted to keep it, but it featured a pretty tricky pattern. We started by choosing a wallpaper with a print that worked with the rug's pattern. Then we selected a paint shade that was also in the rug and the wallpaper. These common threads helped us keep the rug, while introducing a fun wallpapered accent wall.
Some of our exciting pieces have started to pour in. The bench arrived - and not in the color we expected. It was supposed to be a blush tone, but arrived a bit too close to the wall color. In design, this stuff happens. You have to be flexible. We're working with it! Our sconces also arrived; they were chosen to match to the brass bed.
