Houston Family Room – Room in a Day

Our Room in a Day service is a great way to allow me to work with clients who want help developing a design plan for a design project but really want to do the leg work on their own.

Today’s feature is from a client who used my Room in a Day Service to help her with the family room. This client was building a new home in Houston, so we met at her old house since the new house was not yet finished. We tackled the Family Room by first looking at the overall architectural plan.

Before we met, as always I asked the client to gather ideas for me to see so we were better prepared for the day.

While at her home I started with a simple floor plan, went through her wishlist, and started saving the ideas on a Pinterest board. We then went over things using my 7 step approach.  Her main wants were very kid-friendly, she wanted to incorporate a sectional, and she loves the colors blush pink, navy and gold.

Once I had those details, I then headed back to my studio to create the “master plan”. Taking all that we reviewed, and creating more ideas in my studio and then emailed back the master plan. Here is the concept I came up with from the master plan.

I offer follow-up consultation packages with a design day. With this client, she asked me to help her with the accessories for her bookcase. Here is a quick after-photo I took at our final follow-up consultation…

We would love to work with you on your next project. We also offer virtual services if you live outside of the Houston area. Click on this link for more details about all of our services.

While we don’t share the full list of links from our custom design projects (since that is what our clients pay us for) here is how you can achieve a similar look:

Happy Everything! Karen
