My neighbor was the best type of client: she let me have total control over decorating her home! First of all, she has beautiful furniture. She purchased new furniture for her study because her old furniture was Victorian. She also needed new/updated artwork. Fortunately for me, my neighbor doesn't enjoy shopping for furniture and accessories. But, I do! Secondly, her builder constructed a beautiful home with a lot of nice architectural features--coffered ceilings, crown molding, hand scraped hardwood floors, 11 and 12 ft ceilings. So, having nice furniture and a home with good bones is icing on the cake.
