How to Get Your Client to Sign-Off

Sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words. A client who wants to go a bit more modern without giving up her classic pieces couldn’t picture what I meant by “mixing it up a bit”, so I took a few hours to do these couple of drawings for her…sure enough, we are going ahead with the custom pair of nightstands and TV credenza for the MBR.  Talking with your hands can only take you so far.

Also, the toilet has been moved to create a symmetrical hallway to the bathroom, and a bathroom vanity area. The client thought it would make the room feel to small (still trying to convince her on that one). I would go for room that works before size in a minute. But, like I always say, I don’t have to live there.

I always love looking at your sketches. I agree! A sketch can really sell a project!

I would immediately approve if I saw these renderings

Yes, agree. It would be so much easier if I possessed your talent! My "drawings" are so primitive!

Wow great design! I too would sign off right away. Your sketches totally evoke the feel of the space. I LOVE the tall green headboard. Looks like a chic hotel room.

Yes...if we only had your talent! I can do a bit with a pencil and a ruler but that's about it! Well done friend!

Love the green upholstered bed and that fab headboard :-) I'd sign off on this room in a second if I was your client!!

Your renderings are always so amazing -- you have some major artistic genes!!

Enjoy your weekend!!
