Initial Design Angst
When a client sets the bar high for design, specifically hiring me to create for them a space with architectural interest, I'm a bit anxious to hear their first response to see if I'm even close to their intent. Often times clients have an array of magazine cut-outs or printed images off Houzz depicting what they like even though it is hard to decipher exactly what about an image strikes them. These images can be contradictory in nature, or representing a very different scale project and therefore difficult to apply that idea to their specific space. Below are images of a master bathroom design that reflects the above challenge, and the clients response to these drawings (which reduced my angst very quickly).
"Rick, Thanks so much for the drawings. What a fantastic start. You really were listening and have incorporated so many of the issues we discussed. "Seeing" it is SO helpful."
