{Mallie} So welcome back to another episode of Galaxy-Design’s innovative design series. We are here today in Ladera Ranch.

{Steve} Yes, Daphne came into our showroom last week and she brought some pictures with her. She said she had some window treatments up and she wants to keep most of them, however she wants to take some of the window coverings out and bring it up to date.

Our goal is to go in and find out what we can do to take this place and bring it up to date and also enhance the quality of her life today.

Good to see you again. This is Mallie. Mallie is a co-designer and realtor and she will be assisting us today.

{Mallie} Your house is beautiful. I love the high ceilings. I see that what you’ve done is already beautiful as it is but tell me in your own words what you envision it to look like after we are done.
Do you want it to be elegant, soft, modern, give me a feel for what you want.

{Mrs. Turner} Well I’m going for a softer look. More of a straight line. The room is formal but not so I am kind of wanting to take the formality out of the room and make it dressy but casual. And more intimate.

{Mallie} Sounds good. And how do you feel? Are you aligned with that? Are you on the same page?
{Mr. Turner} I’m slowly getting there.

{Mrs. Turner} I like the cloud.

{Mallie} Yeah, I think it is really soft. And it’s not outstandingly white where it’s so bright.

{Steve} I like this one, I think it’s kind of clean. Sounds like we might have found something.

{Mrs. Turner} I like what you’ve found.

{Steve} OK, so we are going to take off the top of the window treatment and go ahead and take all of this stuff down. All this stuff is going to come down. We are going to take all of the drapes down, the shears, really bring the place up to date and spruce it up.

And I think that is a good move. We can start with this and we will leave that top part because that will bring the light into the room.

{Mrs. Turner} Yes, I think that’s going to be great.

{Mallie} So we are back at Daphne’s house and we put up the blinds about a week ago and she liked it a lot. She likes more of an airy feeling to the home more of an open feeling. Andrew on the other hand…

{Steve} He’s much more traditional. He likes things more orderly and a little bit more covered up so the plan is to go ahead and see what we can do to meet up between them and see if we can get them to agree on one design.

{Mrs. Turner} I like the open clean look.

{Mallie} I think if you put some light shears it will do both. It will still be light and airy in here, you will still have light and you will cover it up.

{Mr. Turner} Can you get something like a brushed aluminum or a rose that captures that and plays into this design?

{Steve} Daphne likes this. So this looks good against the blue as well and against that silver it would look really nice and it will stand out.

{Mallie} So Daphne, we started off in your living room and now we ended up in your family room. You decided to choose this room because it was a little easier to work on.

We started off with the valance boxes, the big blue boxes and the heavy, heavy curtains here and in your kitchen. Which is more of Andrew’s style. It is more extravagant more traditional style and you are definitely more of a calm subtle really collected style. You like straight lines on everything.

So you guys actually had differences but you did come to a conclusion. You went with the simple silver drapery hardware and some simple curtain swags that really brought out the design of the room.
How did you come to that conclusion?

{Mrs. Turner} What we learned was that we didn’t have as much in common as far as our décor tastes as we thought we did. So we decided that we would meet in the middle of the road. He would get some fabric and I would get my blinds and we would be fine.

{Steve} How was the experience for you from the beginning to the end?

{Mrs. Turner} It was good. It started out a little challenging like I said when I realized our tastes were different I became a little nervous because I had everything taken off of the windows and I was a little shell shocked. Actually Andrew was a little more shell shocked than I was.

But the way you guys came in and coached us and held us by our hand and you assured us that you would not leave us until we were satisfied. From the beginning to the end it was quite an experience. I would not recommend anyone doing this on their own.

{Steve} You know, the room actually looks phenomenal.

{Mrs. Turner} Yes it does and it really did soften it up and add some character to it. The way I had it was a little bare. So it added some character to it now.

{Steve} So what would you recommend?

{Mrs. Turner} Making sure you have a reputable consultant that has passion about what they do so they can guide you through the process. Otherwise we could have been fighting if it hadn’t been for you guys. So you guys kind of kept the peace.

{Mallie} I really appreciate you allowing us to come to that final decision that you and Andrew agreed on and you really allowed us to fulfil on our mission which is to enhance the quality of life.

{Mrs. Turner} You guys have done that. I can honestly say that. You guys were great to work with.
