Your Home is Your Sanctuary
With all the craziness going on in the world, our homes are becoming more important to us than ever.
As a result we are cocooning, making our home a safe retreat.
People are focussing more on their homes because they cannot plan to travel with certainty.
So, our clients are nesting. They want their homes more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.
People want a practical space to work from home. As a result, home offices have become very important. A small study nook is no longer sufficient.
More than one home office space is now required.
Additionally, children need a space for home schooling. Tertiary students need to participate in online lectures and zoom sessions with their tutors.
Firstly, students need a well lit but dedicated study space. Secondly, it has to be comfortable & inviting.
Private study space within the home is needed for different generations. Zoom video meetings & conference calls are the norm.
As a result, bedrooms are being modified to accommodate comfortable study areas.
A home now needs to work for so many different purposes whilst accommodating different personalities.
Using decor to promote harmony has never been more important.
Accommodate individual personalities with a deft mix of pattern, colour and texture.
Make study areas more conducive to tasks by upgrading the window furnishings. Controlling the natural light with appropriate window furnishings is easily achieved.
Motorise window furnishings for ease and speed of operation.
The study nook has custom built in upholstered seating.
Window coverings in (bedroom) study areas need special consideration for work and sleep times.
Firstly, a fabric that filters the light to reduce glare on computer screens. Secondly, a fabric to darken the room for sleeping.
This is achieved by coupling a combination of blockout and light filtering window furnishings.
Motorisation is becoming increasingly popular for window furnishings.
Many homes are “Smart Homes”. Moreover, our clients want us to integrate these new technologies to control their curtains and blinds.
This is particularly useful when a room has many individual roller blinds. Rather than having each one individually controlled with hand operated chains; we use a remote control device, or integrate it back to a Smart Home control panel/screen.
Furthermore, a group of roller blinds can be operated at the same time – all this is possible!
Motorisation also gives you the option to set a limit on a blind to open to say just partly closed (and can be easily changed at any time).
Kids bedrooms with custom made seat cushions that fit into a seating nook (such as under a window for good lighting); can be coordinated back to window furnishings and bed linen.
We can help with selection of fabric colours that are conducive to study – soothing, relaxing, stimulating.
To make your kids’ bedrooms interesting – use textures & colour pops.
Because we are spending more time in our homes, we need to keep these interesting like being able to quickly change the decor without doing a major decor renovation.
Tips for keeping your home looking interesting and inviting:
Use cushions to quickly change up the look of a room
Bed head panels – because these are easily installed and interchanged you change your bed linen with the seasons.
Lamps – recover lamp shades in interesting fabrics – and we do these too!
And, if you want to feel as if you are staying in a luxury hotel without leaving home – then wall to wall and floor to ceiling drapery in beautiful SFold pleating will make you feel as if you are!
