How can you use what you have and keep it fresh?
This client moved to Lake Oswego from San Francisco and engaged Kimberlee Jaynes Interior Designs, Inc for some help with decor in the living room, great room, kitchen, teenage daughter's room and master bedroom. She brought most of what her previous designer had done for her in SF for the living room. I helped with placement of furnishings and made her past fit into her present, by having the draperies shortened, choosing the new mirrored coffee table and designing the over sized ottoman perched by the fireplace. Along with placing the African masks in the dining room and accessorizing this helped my client use what she already had, while adding a little to freshen the look for her new residence. Contrary to common belief that designer's will "want to start all over" I enjoy incorporating treasures from my client's lives into their current space. (Stay tuned to see the rest of the house in upcoming posts.)
