Hi Melissa, I am sorry, I don't have easy access to that information anymore. The best way to pick a paint color is to pull big chips of it, and coordinate with your fabrics and finishes in the room. Good luck with your project!

Hi csforsythe, thanks for the compliment! Sorry I can't divulge all of my secrets! It wouldn't be custom one-of-a-kind for my client if I publicized that information. Good luck with your project!

Hi fscher, the furniture is made by multiple sources, and the pillow I had custom made locally. You will excuse me if I don't share all of my trade secrets! :) As a designer, I work hard to find the perfect item (size, function, finish, quality) for my clients from my trade resources, and this is why they hire me. Thanks for the question!

Hi Lisa, thanks for the question! I had this pillow custom made for my client. It is much easier to provide a pillow that is perfect for both the client and the space by going the custom route. Getting customized one-of-a-kind touches like this is a great reason to hire a designer - they have endless resources to pull from! Best of luck to you!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Apartment 46 for the Home added this to 6 Cost-Effective Ways to Go Custom Made
1. Start with soft goods. When you’ve invested time and money to refresh your space, the last thing you want is for it to feel cookie cutter or entirely culled from a chain store. Soft goods add a great deal of personalization to a room, and although it may seem cliché, it’s totally true that a set of great pillows and a throw can transform a sofa or chair. Cost: Having pillows custom made will vary in cost depending on the fabric, the insert, the number of pillows, the details and the maker. Assuming your fabric is $30 per yard (a low to medium price) and you have chosen down inserts, a standard 20-inch by 20-inch pillow could run you anywhere from $70 to $150 (including the cost of the fabric and the insert). The pillow covers can be dry-cleaned, and you can switch out the inserts if you decide you want something with less or more density, something you can’t typically do with your run-of-the-mill chain-store pillows. The best part is that you can have them made to fit your needs. If you like big, cushy pillows that create a cocoon feeling, you can have multiple oversize pillows made with a down fill or down alternative — perfect for piling them together and taking a long nap. If you don’t like a lot of clutter on the couch, you may opt for tailored, smaller pillows or splurge on details like piping, welting and fringe. Why it’s worth it: Think about it this way: You can spend $30 a pair for pillows that may wear out and become boring to you in a few months, or you can spend a bit more to get something you love, of much better quality, that no one else has and that will last much longer.
