Yep, Stager Linda is been a busy girl. Many unusual projects! I was asked to help on a Victorian Bedroom. Do you have any idea how much I know about Victorian decor? Can you say mucho research? I tried to drag, drag, drag, Queen Victoria into 2013. We managed to get a new bed treatment that made her Majesty happy. We are also working on recovering a settee to match.
I'm also working on this bedroom redo. The owner's went on a trip to Italy and that is her inspiration. She loves COLOR. The paint color, bed treatment, bed side table and accessories shopping is ongoing. I did find the grayish tuffed leather ottoman on Craigslist for $325. We scored it for $290!

I worked on accessorizing a bathroom renovation. I guess I studied color for nothin'. Everything was a go until the BB&Y (owner's coupons ya know!) shower curtain we purchased was deemed unacceptable. Mr. shower curtain was boring but it coordinated with the other accessories. Pinky-beige marble was the bossy element in the bathroom and I tied to work with it. My amigo went with a copper colored shower curtain. Pink and cooper--a most unusual color combo, indeed!
Here's a house I've just been hired to make exterior color choices. The owner is NOT selling. They plan to stay here 'forever'. His daughters 11 & 13 will have final say on the colors. His daughters have in mind green and purple. Non-negotiable. Green and purple.
See the color choices under the windows before I was brought in? I'm thinking sage green and aubergine. Do you have any idea how many sage colors exist? Or that the purple-y pink colors on color charts don't match what I 'see' as aubergine? Stager Linda may be marching into BM with an eggplant and saying 'match this!'
Interesting project, no?
Any ideas? (I'm talking brands, numbers and names, folks!)
