Sketching to Communicate with Clients

Does anyone create lovely sketches for their clients anymore?
We often create amazing decorative pillows to accompany a conserved item.

Kate created design sketches from images and samples,
so that we could better talk with our client about ideas for her sofa pillows.
These are fancy pillows for a pair of loveseats, and the colors are
lovely rusty jewel tones with touches of green and amethyst.
We like the idea of cream silks to set off the deep jewel tones.


The page, altogether, ideas wandering on their own.


More design sketches for our client, the owner of the Louis XVI Settee.
Silk bolsters for the arms, with flirty tassel-dangly-bobs.
French knotted India silk creating scrunchy pillows for the back.


Kate also caught the LouisXVI in another sketch…
