When I was working on the samples the other day, trying to match my original finish, I also brought along with me, some new samples for the Laundry Room and Mudroom. Often, my clients are not home when I am working at their house, so I leave a lot of notes and samples for them to look at when they return. This system works well for clients I have been working with for several years now. New clients need a little more hand holding, a little more explanation of how the finishes will work and look, etc. With Repeat Clients, the trust has been established so there is a lot more freedom.
I taped up a Silver Moss (Lusterstone) sample for the walls in the Mudroom. The smaller paint chip is the base color for the painter to prep the walls.
This Iridescent Gold Striae sample is for the 5 doors in the Mudroom area. It will just be used as an accent, not for the entire door.
The Powder Room, which I just completed, is off of this Mudroom. The electrical is not hooked up in there yet, and the mirror and toilet need to be installed. After I finished stenciling the Fennel, I unplugged my light and had already moved it to another area, so I took this picture in the dark. />
I am surprised to see that it is pretty true to color! The vanity in this room is awesome, so once the lighting is installed and everything else goes in, I’ll take some more photos.
Next, I left some samples for the new Laundry Room. Now, first I must
say, I was very sad to learn the old Laundry Room was demolished to
expand the new kitchen. This Laundry Room was one of my favorite jobs
I ever did. Here is one photo from that room.
This was all done freehand, no stencils. The clothing replicated her 2 boys clothing, who were about 9 & 10 at the time. Now they are both in college, so we are moving onto a new theme!
