|To start my design proposal I used the app Paper by 53 on my iPad. An easy way to sketch your ideas.|
As an added challenge to this room, my client and her husband didn't want to change the bedroom furniture but on the bright side, they personally appreciate straight lines and light blue and aqua colors. She insisted on bringing a spa-like look and feel in their room and to eventually translate this to her master bathroom.
After having a better understanding of my client's taste, I embark on a quest to find their in-home spa retreat. I made for them two design proposals with a slight difference in the color palette used but on both I kept an item or two that brought in the spa/zen feeling.

|Chair and wall mirror from Z-Gallerie, table and ceiling lamp from Horchow, bedding from Calvin Klein at Macy's, decorative cushion from WestElm, side table geode knob from Anthropologie.|
To these proposals I also added some images I found on Pinterest to give my client a better idea of other accessories we could add to the room. These images helped her translate her thoughts on things she knew she wanted, but didn't know how to described. The inspiration photos are a useful tool when presenting an idea to others because it gives them a better look at what you are suggesting to do.
