they may be required to paint – i’m not sure – but it seems to me that if you have limited time, go with what’s on the walls already. you can make any color work.
2nd – put SOMEthing on the walls. buy some prints! frame them! the designers seem to be forgetting the fact that their work is judged from a video of the space, not in person. obviously, you’ve got to go big to be seen.
which brings us to 3 – LAY OFF the horrible tiny accessories, like the pillar candles (would you put those out in your own home?), the line of votives, the cheap vases, the awful picture frames. these have nothing but a negative effect on the overall impression of the room. again, go BIG or forget it.
we’ve been over 4 already – original paintings = NO. and the re purposing they did of the yardsale items = AWFUL. why, pray tell, did no one pick up that huge skull and hang it over the mantel in one of those lovely wallpapered rooms? can you imagine – it would have been wonderful, and taken no time at all.
