So here I am again apologizing for not keeping up with the blog. Yup, it has been crazy here at Artful Conceptions. We have been working on so many amazing custom homes that I had to stop for a short minute and share some of the process. I know we all think that is easy peasy lemon squeezy and blue prints arrive, LOL! So reality is we draw and redraw all of the little details over and over again to make sure all aspects are just right. Sometimes it can be into the evening when kids are in bed, or while they are doing homework that it becomes time to pull out the plans and work on the details.

I know there are designers that finish at the end of the day, I am just not one of them. If it is going around in my mind it needs to be looked at, adjusted or worked out. It means lugging around samples to all over the world. Yes, my car almost always has tile samples, wood samples, fabric books and sometimes even plumbing in it. No need for that super luxury car. If it can’t take a beating without feeling insanely guilty, not a good fit. LOL! And yes my phone is filled with pictures of samples almost more than my kids, Shhhh don’t tell them!

Walking the job sites is always fun for me to see how things are moving along. I love seeing it go from plans to slab, to framing to cabinetry and tile to the finished product.

Hardware details that make me swoon!
Fireplaces!!!! And of course the blue tape!

All the fun details and little touches make such a difference. It is what takes the design from good to AMAZING! I want every project to be amazing. Whether you are building an 8,000 square foot house or a 1,500 it is all about you and how we can bring together all that you love in one place. So when you see me on instagram obsessing over a cabinet handle or a piece of baseboard know that it is because I am thinking about how it is going to be the touch that changes everything in the design. It is that little detail that makes it feel perfect!

So when you are ready to build your own custom home we want to be there to hold your hand. And I promise I will be up late redrawing, obsessing and adjusting until we have the perfect design for you. All so that you can “love the space you’re in!”
