My daughter is in interior design. I am not in interior design. But I would like to be. I like planning and thinking of different options for space and color. My personal bodega (shed) is stacked with quart cans of paint that I bought to try this color or that color in my house. I think I am finally getting it right most of the time without going through several colors before I find the right one. Most of the time.
Miguel's rental apartment is painted all white right now which means the color has to come from furnishings and accessories. So we went shopping for fabric, and found what we both felt was a cheery fabric for the curtains.
We also found a futon that we thought was the best fit for his terrace sala (living room). But it only came in a greenish fabric - not our first choice, but we decided to make it work. The chairs we wanted did not come in the fabric we wanted, but my daughter, the designer, suggested using pillows to tie the pieces together, and it works.
I am putting together a website for Capi's Apartment (one of Miguel's nicknames is "Capi"). But here's a sneak preview of how it looks. I think Miguel did a fantastic job with the structural design, and we are both happy with the end result. Here are some pictures:
