Virtual Design for our Australian Client

We just finished off working with a virtual design client in Australia and we thought we'd share the process!
She started off telling us a little about her style and her family dynamic.  She has two sons aged 6 and 9 and really wants to turn their basement into a media/games room that the boys will enjoy spending time in. She sent us pictures of the space the way it is being used now and told us about the pieces she wanted to keep (none!).
Next we created a mood board for her with what we were thinking and awaited her feedback on what she liked and what she didn't.

She liked the polished concrete floors but thought they were too cold for the space.  Loved the artwork and some of the fabrics but was unsure of the orange and really doesn't like brown.  This whole scheme felt a little too busy for her and her family.  So we moved along!

This one met with approval for the sofa, the flooring and the media cradenza but didn't have enough umph or colour for the boys.  So the following was completed taking everything we had learned into consideration.

Third times a charm! Almost perfect now.  Bright, fun, colourful fabric, cool white furniture pieces and artwork inspired by her boys' love of surfing.   Only a couple of changes to be made...the striped rug is being swapped out for a solid navy blue rug and the large shelving is being downsized to a white sofa table to save on space.  More storage will be added under the stairs with built ins.

Next Step! A floor plan and ideas for where to place the elements seen in the mood board.  

Our client said that she will be happy to send along pictures when the room is completed and of course we will share them with you.  
Thanks for taking a peek at how our virtual design works!
