KIND WORDS -
Can I just say that if you are thinking of using Michelle for an email consult then do it. I don't know why I resisted the idea of using an interior decorator, but my DH said that considering we are spending over $300K on a house, $300 on a email consult was a cheap price to pay to get peace of mind instead of stressing out. And it's been worth heaps more.
We really just needed someone to bounce ideas off and get some opinions and ideas. You have to make so many decisions in what is a relatively short space of time, not to mention trying to put existing furniture into a non existent future colour scheme.
My kitchen has given me nightmares and Michelle came up with a fabulous colour and I love it. It is going to be the theme colour throughout the house.
She listened to me and really gave me great ideas to think about. I never really appreciated exactly how well it would clarify exactly what I was after. Not to mention that it has made building a much more enjoyable and exciting experience, rather than a stressful one because I was changing my mind repeatedly. I now have a great A4 folder that goes with me everywhere to coordinate fabrics, carpets, blinds, ceramics, everything.
Thanks Michelle, you're the best.
