The summer sun can shine a whole new perspective on the home (like how much my windows need to be washed!), and it's not surprising that remodeling and construction really starts to heat up this time of year. At Six Walls we see ourselves as your one-stop-studio for all things that revolve around making your home an easier to maintain, inviting, and relaxing haven. Share with us your new sun drenched perspective of your home, and the challenges you face, we'd love to help.
Like the friendly summertime table art/bronze picnic ant sculptures pictured above (available for purchase at the Six Walls design studio), our design team is prepared to work together with you, your contractor, architect and other construction related professionals to get the job done. We realize that by working together, each team member brings unique skill sets and perspective that can culminate in creating the client's ultimate desired result. In fact, if you are looking to assemble this kind of team, we are well networked with other trade pros and would be happy to provide referrals for your consideration.
As with the multi-colored layers of the iconic summer watermelon, the trained eye of a Six Walls design pro are used to look at their client's projects in term of layers. First, design is not simply as easy as selecting the right wall color for a room. We take into account the existing elements in the space, and create a relationship between all the parts (flooring, furniture, wall decor, and lighting, just to name a few) You know you need the right cutting tool to break through the shinny green layer of the watermelon rhine to get the the juicy red core of a watermelon? Well, Six Walls is that tool. Your design tool.
Do your hardwood floors look more like a beat up picnic table than a nicely finished piece of furniture?
Are you tired of the stain color of your flooring? Vacation comes to mind when summer has arrived, and this makes it a great time to consider having your hardwood floors refinished. Because you have to be out of the home for several days during this process anyway, why not take a vacation while the floor refinishing team does all the hard work? This will give the stain and finish coats time to dry properly, and for the home to air out after the final coat of finish has been applied.
From 5pm on into the warm summer evenings of the great Northwest, an inviting outdoor living space is truly a sanctuary we all long for. Consider adding custom outdoor cushions in vibrant colors to hard wood or metal seating, or install sheer drapery panels with grommets from your pergola to defuse the glare of the sun just enough to create a relaxing & comfortable outdoor dining area. Or, place one of our colorful side tables next to your favorite chaise lounge where you can enjoy a cool drink and put your feet up!
Scheduling a celebration or special event at your home is a great motivator to start or completing that interior update you've been dreaming of embarking on. Invite your friends & family to enjoy the transformation your home has undergone with the help of a Six Walls design pro. At your event, serve up our special summer inspired recipe (below) which shows a fresh take on a classic hot weather treat.
