French Country Cottage Design

I hope you are all enjoying your week! 
I am having a great week.  The Halloween Decorations are finally up!  We have been a little busy around here the last few weeks and have been behind the ball on getting decorations up.  So at least we have a couple weeks of Halloween fun.
As far as the business side of things,  I am in the process of working with a new client to decorate her living room.  This couple is making the move from Maryland to Virginia and have decided to retire here.  They are looking to keep a little of the traditional feel, but really bring in a more updated feel to the space. 
After meeting with the client, I decided to take a little of the French Country feel and add a bit of a relaxed cottage feel into it.  Sort of meld it all together.  Their was a floral fabric chair that the client currently has in the living room and she wanted to keep it in the space.  So, I took the colors from the chair and brought in a deeper shade of blue.  This is the color palette I chose...
I think for the walls, the Languid Blue color will be perfect!  My client's have the most gorgeous trim work throughout the living room and a beautiful tray ceiling with recessed lighting to finish it off, so my thought was that this color would bring such a relaxing feel to the room!
Here is the design board that I created for their French County Cottage Living Room...
I hope you like it.  I think the clock might just be my very favorite thing!
