Furnishing Mabel’s Empty Living Room — Elements of Style Blog

One of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time has been Only Murders In the Building – there’s something about it that is just happy (even though it deals with murder!) Since the guys on the show all have pretty amazing apartments, I thought it would be fun to dress up Mabel’s apartment from its current state of disrepair. Things I noted about the character that fed into my decisions: she’s pretty modern, dark, likes fashion, music, art, textures (all her coats!), rich yellow is a color I associate with her (again, her outfits) and she has a moody air about her. Of course I’d leave her mural on the wall, so I pulled some colors from that too. These are all exercises that help us figure out how our own clients will respond to things we propose too (your closet is a great place to start when trying to figure out what you are naturally drawn to color and pattern-wise!)

Who else shall I do a Pretend Client room for?
