Colin: we would be looking at the same pictures of molding profiles
that you have looked at.
this is why I emphasize that you put together something that is readily
available to you. express to your client that the photo she provided is
more than likely a "one off" project that was custom milled for that house.
you can easily come close with just 3 pieces that will look custom to her home.
and again, does she want to do just one room or a whole house ?
is this a retrofit, renovation or new build ??
a lot more information will help YOU get the job.
but - we do not have to take on every job that comes our way.
with experience, we learn how to politely pass on certain jobs.
I don't know how many photos I pulled from home style magazines
for my kitchen renovation. I did get several good tips, but, in the end,
I did it my way within my skill set and available tools.
all the best !!
[and if you do get the job, when assembling multiple pieces of baseboard
to achieve the look of one solid milled piece, apply a thin line of elastomeric
caulk in the joints and smooth out with a finger. after a finish coat of paint,
you will never see the seams - and you will get a Job Well Done !!].
