Cassandra contacted me needing assistance with her dining room. The challenges? The room is really large, oddly shaped with many entrances, and has an entire wall of windows and French doors.
Cassandra’s taste is very eclectic. She likes bold, bright colors, modern touches, and a mix of patterns and textures. Here’s a look at the room we’re working with:
Incredible potential. And aren’t those windows wonderful!?
Here’s the plan I designed for her:
This design was so much fun to work on. And to make it even better, Cassandra was thrilled with my ideas. Here’s what she had to say:
“WOW!! I’ve been waiting on pins and needles to see your design & it was WELL worth the wait!! You hit it out of the park and completely GOT IT!! My husband is still reeling over the price of the drapery fabric 🙂 but I agree with you. It is by far the show stopper. I’m absolutely giddy about the ideas you’ve come up with and am your newest huge fan! I hope I can do it justice. I’ll be sure to keep you posted with progress pics. Thanks a million!”
Yeah…we won’t even talk about the price of the drapery fabric. It’s shocking, to say the least. But that’s why it’s so important to set a budget before you begin decorating a room rather than just wing it as you go along. If you have a firm budget, you’ll know where you can splurge!
It’s rewarding being able to do what I love every day…and get paid for it. But it’s even more so when I have a satisfied client. 🙂
I hope y’all have a great weekend!!
Cassandra’s dining room is finished! Here’s a peek at how it turned out…

Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
