Today I will be sharing just a little bit about my show house space plan. I ordered furniture for the design show house space right after I was notified that my design was selected for the show. Our timeline was tight considering that we are dealing with custom work in almost every area of this room.
In this living room space I will be using a mix of custom made upholstered pieces and a vintage chair which I gave a fresh new look with modern fabric. I also mixed in some sleek lacquered designer pieces complementing my color scheme. Gleaming gold metallic and glass touches keep this room feeling light and airy, these finishes also reflect the beautiful morning sun light that pours in through the front windows. I had already prepared a complete space plan and all floor plans and elevation drawings as I submitted them in my original design presentation. So all of my selections were made and I was ready to get everything ordered as the clock was ticking toward our deadline. Measurements must be exact as space planning for a room of this size must be very precise in measurement and proportion.
Everything ordered for this room was delivered to my office from a variety of my designer vendors, unpacked, checked for imperfections, re-packed and transported to the show house, where my crew and I re-assembled and placed each piece according to my plan. The furniture looks beautiful in the space and I can’t wait to show you the completed room!
There is no substitute for a proper space plan. I have seen homeowners weep after ordering a beautiful furniture piece on their own, thinking they will save some money on their special find, only to realize that not only does it not fit up the stairs, but once they hire someone to take their stairway apart to get it up the stairs, it doesn’t even look proportioned to the rest of the furnishings and cannot be returned or removed. Expensive mistakes can be made without a proper space plan and thorough knowledge of how to figure out what items will work in your space. Let me help you prepare the perfect space plan for your next design project!
