I always get overly excited when I am working on a design project that I consider complexed. As with this design project, which is indeed incredibly detailed, but it is designed specifically for the homeowner by a hired architect. The incredible part about this type of project is that everything from the exterior to the interior caters to the owner’s specifications. On the other hand, with a predesigned plan, the client would not be involved, or she would be constrained. Also, the desired land was bought first by the client before the architectural project was in place. OMG, some of the features in this house are beyond amazing. Can I get an elevator at my home, please? With that said, my primary purpose on-site was to discuss the official color palette and do a walk-through with the client.
I did a quick look throughout the surroundings because this was my assurance that everything is up to par. As a designer, this has always been a top priority when other professionals are on-site because with multiple projects being worked on, keeping track of each one is essential. However, during the walk-through, I couldn’t help but admire the many features that I implemented throughout the different phases, and to see each displayed is on a whole other level. I mean, I was beyond googly-eyed. Seriously, I was genuinely googly-eyed! The client and I were able to find a quiet place to look over some color swatches. Also, we discussed other factors that will soon go into effect before the completion of the project. Both of us are beyond pleased with what we see and are looking forward to the final masterpiece.
Moreover, every project that I tackle, as the principal designer, I truly enjoy. Each one gives way to individualized experiences that are genuinely beyond amazing! Furthermore, what makes this project so unique and special is the fact that I have been with the client from day one. There have been individuals who started with me on day one that is no longer around because of not giving the client what she envisions for her home. The main reason why I am still here is that it is always about the client and never the designer. As the principal designer, I have had significant input in how the exterior and interior look for this house.
Okay, and yes, I pat myself on the back because I listened carefully to my client. Her vision is about to become not only a reality but a beautiful reality as well. Until then, stay tuned!
