Would You Dare?

When I came across this image by Jan Showers, I immediately thought, "That took some guts!" I'm a risk taker by nature and was truly inspired by the use of the print fabric in this space. I've seen thousands of design spaces over the years and think that the room is expertly executed. I started to wonder" Is this what non-design people think of when we make suggestions that seem far-fetched to them?"
For some reason this image even made me feel hopeful. Hopeful that someday, someone will say, "Hey I trust your vision, do whatever you'd like." Hopeful that someday clients will blissfully surrender without the creative battle that often takes place during the design process.
My guess would be that this is not the first project that Jan Showers has done for this client. What do you think? At what point would you trust this particular recommendation for your home? Is this something you would just trust your designer to execute at the beginning of your relationship? Or is this something for a well-worn, hard earned designer/ client relationship?
