Outdoor Spaces: Design Beyond Your Home’s Walls

Written by Jon Delach, Interior Designer, South Hills on June 22, 2016

outside sleeping areaI love summer, when my home seems to “grow” (no pun intended). The sunshine gives me the opportunity to take things outside, and utilize my outdoor living areas. My deck with its wrap around banquet seating, and my dining table under my gazebo…they just call to me when I’m at home in the summer!

Think of all your outdoor spaces as additional rooms. (more…)

Art!

When choosing art for you home, you don’t always needs to have it exactly match your fabrics, carpeting, painting, etc. You want it to compliment but doesn’t have to “match”.  (more…)

When will you move?

Written by Jon Delach, Interior Designer, South Hills on April 18, 2016

In today’s world many people will buy a home and only be in it 3 to 5 years due to job transfers. With this in mind resist the urge to paint or carpet in the latest fashion . If you keep your backgrounds neutral as in beige, grays and taupes you can pretty much add any color you want. Think pillows art and accessories. When purchasing furniture normal size sofas 84″ to 86″ long x 36″ to 38″ deep will fit in 90% of spaces. Don’t custom order a sofa or sectional to fit your existing space. What happens when you move and in the new space its extending 18″ beyond a doorway? Many years ago a dear client of mine asked me to look at a house they were considering purchasing. The reason she wanted me was because she couldn’t see through the home owners decorating. When we got there the house was an explosion of PURPLE everywhere. Shag carpet, crushed velvet furniture, lavender walls ugh! I could see through all of this to the “bones” and told my client “buy it” when we rip all of this out and replace it with your furniture and colors it will look fabulous. She purchased the house and I made it hers. So remember keep it simple and neutral and it will sell.
