Dream Client + Dream Builder = Dream Home

August 16, 2008

 

DREAM CLIENT + DREAM BUILDER = DREAM HOME  by Cheryl Sandella

THE MONUMENTAL TASK OF BUILDING A CUSTOM HOME…You’re trying to decide on who will build your home.  You know you want someone reputable, who builds quality, is respectful to your budget and time frame and most importantly someone you can trust.  But during that process you might overlook that the builder also needs to trust the client, feel secure that the client is going to work with them in regards to time and budget.  They also want to make sure they are paid promptly and changes are discussed appropriately so they don’t negatively influence the project.  Below are some tips to help put together the DREAM TEAM: 

 

THE DREAM CLIENT IS…

·         Suited for the service, style and caliber of home being offered, designed and built

·         Willing to pay the cost and has a realistic budget

·         Reasonable with their time frame

·         Able to see the value in the services provided

·         Respectful to the  professional opinions and advise given

·         Open minded to the design and building process

·         Loyal to the project

·         Someone who is a joy to work with

·         Similar in characteristics to past dream clients

 

THE DREAM BUILDER IS…

·         A benefit to your project    

·         Able to listen and communicate with you in a manner that you’re comfortable with

·         Respectful to your opinions and goals for the project

·         Able to build within your budget

·         Resourceful and can create what you want

·         An expert who can build you a quality custom home

·         Encouraging and supportive

·         Someone you would enjoy working with

·         Similar in characteristics to a past person you felt comfortable doing business with

THE DREAM HOME IS…

A collaboration of decisions made and built on a strong foundation of trust and integrity.  A personal space that reflects your physical, emotional and spiritual self and meets all of your needs.   An established relationship between you and your builder that will continue long after the home is complete.   A place you call home.

Creating a Tranquil Master Bedroom

August 7, 2008

I’m working on designing a bedding ensemble for a master bedroom.  The clients wish is contemporary with an Asian flair creating a spa-like mood.  I’ve selected beautiful fabrics in colors of Aqua and Mocha.  The Custom Coverlet is being created in a luxurious silk in aqua and mocha.  The coverlet is lined in solar satin chocolate with a ribbon cord trim on all four sides.  The coverlet is designed to be turned down displaying the mocha fabric and cord on the aqua/mocha colored coverlet. 

The Tailored Style Duster is Shalini Silk in mocha with thin aqua threads running through.  This fabric has iridescence to it.  It will be lined in ivory sateen.

There will be two sets of Shams.  The Euro shams are tailor-made with the Shalini Silk fabric, flanged with coral shaped bead fringe made from sea glass.  The other set of shams are made from a fabric called Aquadisiac.  It is a tone on tone with a velvet leaf motif on silk…just stunning.

Three Accent Pillows will adorn and complete the ensemble.  Two square pillows in a sheer overlay on brown silk are being fashioned.  The sheer is a light shade of aqua with brown raised leaves and tiny amethyst florets, with brush trim on all four sides.   The third pillow will be a “Surprise” pillow utilizing all of the left-over fabric in a bolster shape.  The surprise pillows are always a favorite!

The drapery is two operational panels on a decorative pole of brushed stainless steel with black leather finials.  The fabric is called Fuzzy Flowers – an Asian inspired print of coppery brown velvet raised flowers on aqua silk background.  The shades of browns compliment the painting on canvas above the bed called Secluded Tranquility by the artist Douglas.  The lined drapes will hang ceiling height and gracefully touch the floor. 

The side chair named the Bacall will be upholstered in a very unique cream-colored fabric with Pagoda’s in shades of aqua and mocha.  The wood legs are finished in espresso. 

The roman shade above the master tub is being tailor-made with aqua coral shapes on a chocolate brown background.  The top valance will dangle the sea glass coral bead trim. 

An area rug, lamps, floral décor, art and accessories will complete the master suite. 

 

To create your own master bedroom paradise you need to know the mood you’re trying to create.  I feel the master bedroom is such an important room as it is the first room you awake to and the last room you fall asleep to. For a spa-like mood I recommend selecting peaceful colors that promote relaxation that feel surreal.  I chose colors of aqua and mocha for this room.  I liked this combination because it is unique for one and the colors are soft and tranquil…different from the chocolate brown and light blue that is used so often.   In this room the walls are painted in soft creamy beige.  Wall color should also be soft to create a spa-like mood.  This color is also a great backdrop for the aqua/mocha color scheme.  Figure out what colors make you feel good and then surround yourself in them.  Color has a great impact on your mood so make sure the first color you see in the morning is one that makes you feel great.
