Posts Tagged ‘Interior Designer Saratoga NY’

From the moment I started working on a design for my home I knew that this was something I was passionate about. I enjoyed exploring ideas, letting my imagination take over, no limits to what I could create in my mind. Of course my husband (who has been in construction for 30 years) is a great source of information for me. He always listens to my ideas and with his background in engineering and construction helps me bring my ideas to life!

I could only imagine…. That is how every design has started for me. My husband and I are soul mates, we dreamed of the home where we wanted to grow our family and somehow we were able to bring it from our mind to fruition. This was by far my biggest accomplishment in design, both my husband and I still sit every day in awe of what we have created.

Recently I have been working with Ted and Terri Gargano. They are a young couple who own a franchise called Certa Pro Painters, I was pleased when they asked me to come aboard as their interior design consultant. I have worked with them in the past and I appreciated their offer to use my talents to grow both Certapro Painters and my own deisign business. I love Envision Magazine, a publication that Certapro Painters puts out to inspire you, and also their blog, here is one of my favorite entries:

What makes a Great Bedroom???? This is a question I’ve asked myself again and again. The answers, for me anyway are, ambiance that feeling of calmness, a personal sanctuary. The bedding, furniture, lighting it should be welcoming, a retreat. A place that will see you through a sleepless night, where you can close the doors and take a deep breath and destress…. A place you can have marathon reading sessions, even illness seems better in this place.

But, what is in a Sanctuary aka bedroom that gives it this feeling?? It should be luxurious, welcoming calming with comfortable seating. In my bedroom I have a Sam Moore chair and ottoman by the fireplace. Lighting, a beautiful chandelier on a dimmer, soft task lighting for reading and just relaxing. Soft colors on the walls that help soothe your eyes and bedding….The softest highest thread count you can afford, 400 count sheets are priced so reasonably, goose down pillows, and down definitely down comforter….ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh blisssssss…

Just some pictures to help translate what I mean:
