French Boudoir: Before and the Almost After

8/28/2017 08:24:00 PM

One of my biggest shortcoming with work is not being able to document them completely. It took weeks, sometimes months, to finish, lots of hardwork and problem solving, then in the end, I won't have the time to take a photo of the afters. The clients will move in, and move on with their lives. And I'm left with the beautiful memories without the photos to prove it. Just take a look at the category design projects on this blog, not everything has a reveal. I know.. such a tease. What's the point of blogging about the process and not showing the results? There's no point. I'm sorry.  Don't hate me. I'll do better. Whatever. Haha

I was looking at my drafts and saw this there just waiting to be noticed. It's honestly one of my favorite project, it's very dainty and sweet. Didn't post this before because of the blurry quality of the after photos. Shot them at night right after installation hence, it's not yet done done. Didn't get the chance to come back. Eeek. But here you go...

It's actually a very decent unit. It just so happen that it's not up to the owner's taste and personality. She wanted a very feminine aesthetic and I can do just that. :)

We installed molding on all walls. Those details will make a whole lot of difference. 

The Foyer. See what I mean? It's all in the details.

Installation day. I love this day. You get to see your vision slowly come to life with the help of all the people arranging and rearranging to my whim. :D

These were the only after photos of it shot at the end of installation day, hence, very blurry. Table glass top is yet to be delivered at this point. Just use your imagination. Hehe

Office wallpaper. I love this so much I installed the very same design on our powder room.

I know, bitin!! That's all I got. I'm sometimes tempted to reach out to old clients and ask them if I can come back to shoot their space. I think it's fine if it's just a few months after. But years?? Ridiculous. Haha.. Maybe I'll do it. But after some time, I don't think it will look exactly the same as I designed it. They could have change the layout and furniture by now. But there's no harm in trying right? If you were the client, would you mind? :)
