III - I disagree with your comments, mainly because when you are dealing with installing anything in your home, I "always" follow the manufacturers instructions and "must" pass along my findings to my clients. Good luck with your business though...

The contractor should know, or should know enough to check specifications before the install. Things can get very expensive if not done right and who wants that grief?

LOL - you said it pickyvicky, the contractor "should" know, but it is up to you the homeowner and myself as the interior designer to advise them of any out of the ordinary installations. It's called accountability and due diligence...I've had some contractors thank me extensively because I've read over the installation instructions - sometimes the manufacturers change the installation guidelines to accommodate an upgrade or change of product - better safe than sorry I always say.

Match grout to the base colour of the tile so that the tile shines (not the grout!)

I'd do both straight then, for the sake of continuity.

I think it looks better to do staggered on the floors and straight on the walls.

Hello everyone, not sure if this has been said - but I love toatsmcgoats work here!
You definitely need to have a "less is more' mentality or it starts to close in the space too much. toatsmcgoats, if you really wanted this pattern behind the bed, then you should have started on that wall because too much of a good thing renders it "un" special.
This is gorgeous, I'd leave it on one wall only, then repeat the bold colour choices down into the room by adding another citrine green or bold red or yellow to liven it up. Beautiful work, but edit it down to just one wall.

To respond again to toatsmcgoats, if you put this pattern throughout the room - you should either paint all your furniture white, or add white wainscotting to break up all that pattern. You can do it but it needs to be done thoughtfully. Some pics to prove my point - good luck!

Add a dark sultry gray-blue pulled from your piece of artwork. Also, check what tone or accent colour is in your china table setting, pull an accent colour out of your dishes so that
when you set the table for that special occasion - the room comes alive with vibrant colour.
Don't have any colour in your dishes? Then think outside the box - get either drapery that is multi-coloured, and pull a seasonal colour from them for your table setting with candles, fresh flowers etc. The dining room is a place to celebrate - have fun - add colour!

Since your walls are dark, a window treatment lighter than the wall color, would be more favorable.

I wouldn't hang a rod over each window, but use one long rod across both. A light blue or gold silk or lined linen drapery (puddled if you want) would be so pretty. Consider wallpaper on the upper half of the walls, as that would really pull the whole room together and create impact.

Hi Julieellen, realizing we're only getting your side of the story, but why would you change what the designer recommended in the first place?

Secondly, you need to work with your designer to find a solution. Especially if they've been paid, they need to help you find a solution to what you changed.

With that said, when clients change my designs, I expect that they advise me BEFORE making the commitment so we can thoughtfully discuss how that change will create a domino affect to other decisions made, and more importantly, how it will change the end result.

For all clients out there that have hired a professional - keep your designer in the loop - we are basing all our recommendations on decisions we thought were made. When you change those decisions - it puts a huge wrench in the wheel of progress and can end up costing you more money to fix it.

When you make changes and don't tell us - you affect the end result, and run the risk of watering down the design intent. You've hired a professional - so why would you change it?

At the very, very least - keep us designers in the loop and tell us what needs to be changed due to budget restraints, materials not being available, or simply that your not happy with the colour choice. Bottom line - communication is key to the success of any project, and especially when working with an interior designer/decorator. Good luck with your project, I hope you find your solution that I feel only your professional designer can answer because he/she knows the entire project and the end result desired by both you and them.

Hi jessicastitcher,
The problem is you don't have any contrast except for the white baseboards and window trim. Dark Blue is a very tough colour to design with, you must get the balance of dark and light perfectly. To be really honest, I'm not a huge fan of painting all the walls dark blue - but you can work your way into the room now by adding more bright - light in your accessories. That will let you see your beautiful wall colour.

Bring in more white - in your artwork, accessories, bedding and drapery to really help the pop the blue off the walls. Your oak furniture isn't helping either, it either needs to be a dark espresso colour, or white. I'd also change out your hardware to something more sparkly - chrome and crystal. For your drapery, if you originally wanted more "navy" to your walls, then find a fabric that has BoTH your wall colour and the dark, rich navy you want! Ensure that the patterns for your drapery and bedding compliment one another and don't clash- too much pattern in here will also close the room in making it feel smaller.

Good luck with your room, I'm sure it will be perfect when you start adding those finishing touches - a few photographs to help inspire you...

With the white trim and ceiling, white sheers are your best choice.

I love the wall color. The new curtains look better. I painted my dining room BM Hale Navy and absolutely love it. I do have a lot of white in the room.....including 4 pairs of white plantation shutters and white upholstered DR chairs. I think you just need time to live with it and you will love it. Actually my hardest problem is settling on an accent color....almost all of the newer colors look great with it and I'm having a hard time picking just one or two. So I change accessories often....having fun with that because rest of the house is very neutral. Enjoy your new color.

They sell them at Staples and K-Mart, they are part of the Martha Stewart line of office accessories. The large dots was an old pattern of her, she's still has the signature robins egg blue colour, but different colours.
