And the client’s paint and rug selections are…By Mary
Last week I asked all our followers to don a designer hat and pick the best combination of rugs and and paints for the Chalk project. From the many great responses I can see a “little” designer skills buried in all of you. If you missed last week’s post check it out here. Be the Designer
Here is the picture from last week. There were no right or wrong selections. Many of you gave it a lot of thought and provided great reasons for your choices. From the comments presented a random number was drawn and the winner of the art glass gift from
Here are Cindy’s choices and comments:
Rug A-love the flower (Gardener in me)
Rug D-love the plaid
Cindy’s says: “Just used these colors in our condo in North Myrtle Beach and again at Lake Gaston. My favorite colors. Blue is calming, rich, never get tired of it. Rug C looks “childlike” from the sample, so it is my least favorite. I am more scared of color than Mary is, instead of a color that is bright and pops, I go for the calming, tranquil effect, good color next to water (maybe that says my life is chaotic, idk.)”
Loved your comments, Cindy! Yes, you know me well. I am never afraid of color! Thanks for entering in on the fun of “Being a Designer”. I will contact you about sending you this one of a kind fused glass Christmas ornament.
NOW-what did the client pick? Here are her choices:
Rug C, Company C Art and Soul, will be the accent rug for a small sitting area adjacent to the DR.
Rug D, Company C Tweedy Lake, will be the larger area rug under the dining table.
Benjamin Moore Corlsbud Canyon will be the accent wall
The tile is being installed and the painting will start next week. When all is done I will show you how all of this comes together. Can hardly wait!
I am in the process of planning another designer challenge. Hope you will join us again with your choices and comments!!!
Off to Napa Valley for the weekend. I’m sure I’ll have some stories to tell next week.
Comments always welcome!!! Let me hear from you!
