Happy Monday folks! We hope you had a restful weekend - ours unfortunately was filled with laundry, chores & a few of the other things we've been putting off for the last several weeks. And sadly we didn't even get through it all. Sigh... But on to more exciting things... Last week we promised that today we'd reveal our choice from the short list of interior designers we met with. So let's not waste any more time (since if you're reading this post, you already know who we chose - we kinda gave it away in the title, lol).
Now that the structure is up finally, we're beginning to switch our focus to planning out the interior spaces. With having such a wide-open floor plan, we figured we'd need some help from interior designers in phoenix so we could do things we knew needed to be done, like defining the various spaces so that they best serve our functional needs.
Well Design Week is coming to a close. In case you missed it be sure to check out the rest of this week's posts. We first took you through our search for inspiration, then outlined how we focused in on our full wish list and created our look book. Today we're finally revealing The Dreamhouse on paper as we go through Kevin's design and it's evolution from rough sketch to colour rendering.
Once we got through the initial research, we took a more in-depth look at the photos we had compiled. What we figured out is that overall we love modern contemporary architecture and we want our house to reflect that in its design both inside and out. That said, we'd still like to maintain a bit of neighbourhood charm because let's be honest, we're not trying to create an art installation in the middle of the suburbs!
Today we're kicking off Design Week - or probably what will become the first of several recurring 'design weeks' as a project like ours just has so many different phases of the design process. This week we'll be focusing on the architectural design.
We've been mentioning Kevin and KW Design a lot on the blog lately and you must be wondering - '"who is this Kevin we keep hearing so much about??" Well we thought it was about time we made some formal introductions.
Well we've had a fantastic trip! We cruised around the Caribbean islands of St. Thomas USVI, Barbados, St. Lucia, and St. Kitts; celebrated a 35th anniversary, celebrated a 65th birthday, spent some quality time with family and most importantly, got some MUCH needed R&R! Not bad for 8 days huh?
