Interior Design Meets Responsive Design

When first approached about building this website, the client had only envisioned a desktop-friendly site, and had not considered making a mobile-friendly version of the site.  After discussing the intent of the site, it was determined that a mobile-friendly version could best be implemented using a responsive theme instead of a distinct mobile theme and mobile optimized content.  During the planning phases for this site in late fall 2011, common “best practices” for responsive website design implementation were still being adopted. Hence much of the site’s theme and functionality was built around the desktop vision for the site rather than the ideal practice of defining a mobile vision and expanding upon it for desktop.
