This past week I’ve been working on a lot of virtual designs and they ALL wanted some type of coastal color palette. One client in particular said that she was looking for a coastal color palette but went on to describe what she wanted as “Nantucket not Miami.” How hysterical is that? Great way of describing her colors don’t you think?
Another one of my coastal loving clients described what he wanted this way:
“We’d like to see a lot of green due to the marsh that is right by our beach house.”
Now that’s important to know! When this client looks out of his window and sees the marsh, he’d like some of those green hues in that particular room which is right by the marsh. If he didn’t like that look or that color, he wouldn’t have built a home right by the marsh. Bring the outdoors in is what he’s saying here.
So you see, describing the color you want for your home is very important but crucial when working on virtual designs. I really need to get into your mind to find out what it is that you want. Descriptions like these, are perfect!
If you would like a virtual design from me, get your fingers ready and start typing a descriptive email or you can call me and I’ll take notes. I absolutely LOVE virtual designs and now, over 60% of my business is virtual. I plan on making that 100%.
Donna, I’ve learned so much since following your blog. Great info here! Thanks.
You did? Thanks so much Cheryl! I’m glad I could help in some way.
