The new line of SMEG Portofino ranges are inspired by the lights of small Mediterranean harbours. There is a perfect match in the contrast of vibrant colour and cool stainless steel. Portofino ranges can fit into most kitchen styles, they can slot in-between the furniture, or be used as free standing appliances. Portofino is finished with coloured sides. They have been designed and made with absolute attention to detail, becoming themselves an internal design object.

Product Spotlight: The Interactive Abode

With the ease provided by the Online Design Studio, home interior selections will never be the same

The Interactive Abode is shaking up the construction industry by coaching new home and condo developers on how to merge technology into their colour selection process.

Over the last five years, there has been a trend in incorporating software into the sales centre when shopping for your dream home, but that process was lacking when it came to the design studio. But now The Interactive Abode’s Online Design Studio software — paired with industry design trends and sales insights — gives developers and homeowners a unique experience when making colour selections.

The Online Design Studio was created for new home and condo developers to revolutionize their colour appointment process. The Interactive Abode (TIA) takes the pen and paper process and turns it into an interactive, online and visual experience for the developer and purchaser. Photo-realistic renderings take the guesswork out of deciding between standard or upgraded options. Buyers are also able to visualize how a colour selection or upgrade will look in their specific unit and learn more about the materials they are picking from the comfort of their home.

Nowadays, you can virtually design, customize and purchase a vehicle online; you can select the brand, model, interior, exterior and more. This is all done while being able to complete the transaction online. Popular HGTV shows such as Fixer Upper and Property Brothers have proven that this technology is influential and available.

So, we asked ourselves, ‘Why isn’t this available for new home buyers?’ The reason it had never been done before is that the colour selection process is complicated. If a condo building has 300 units with 30 model types and 100 selection options, the mechanics behind developing a beneficial software would be challenging. The technology must be built with these rules and exceptions included, but must also maintain a user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing front end. With this in mind, and a lot of hard work, TIA successfully developed the Online Design Studio.

The Online Design Studio serves both types of buyers: people who want to touch and see the materials, as well as people who do not want to have to come into the design centre at all. Buyers also have more time to decide on their selections without the pressure of a decor consultant — just like the stars of HGTV.

The Online Design Studio can be used across all residential building types, from highrise condominium projects with three standard design packages to lowrise homes with 50 backsplash options. Allowing buyers to conduct their research at home shortens the amount of time spent at design centres, or even eliminates the need for an appointment altogether. Interior designers can view a client’s saved selections before their appointment even begins to provide a more personalized experience. End users truly benefit from this process because they can revisit their selections online at a later date and feel confident about the choices they made during their custom appointment.

Alternatively, purchasers have the option of completing their colour selection at home or across the globe. Once the purchaser has made their selections, they can electronically sign the documents and pay for their upgrades online. This is a huge benefit for investors who live elsewhere or who simply do not have the time to visit a design centre in person.

THE INTERACTIVE ABODE

Clients include Biddington Homes, CentreCourt Developments, Plaza, Stafford Homes, Streetcar Developments, Pemberton Homes, National Homes and more. Contact Jenna Zaza at Jenna@TheInteractiveAbode.com for more information.

Design: Windows and Walls with Character

by Linda Mazur

A few rolls of wallpaper can transform and define a space in dramatic and luxurious ways.

The windows and walls in your home are not just a structural entity but, in fact, are a blank canvas for you to become inspired and create something impactful and dynamic. The fabric and wall coverings we are seeing today are not only inspirational but exciting. From bold geometrics to vintage floral, beautiful opulent metallic finishes, to the rustic vibe of reclaimed brick and wood, we just can’t get enough of the design power of fabric and wallpaper.

Both fabric and wallpaper can make a huge impact in any space. A few rolls of wallpaper can transform and define a space in dramatic and luxurious ways, far beyond that of just paint. Whether your room is large or small, wallpaper and fabric can instantly set a style, make a bold statement or add character and personality to an otherwise basic design. It can change a vastly spacious room by making it feel more intimate and cozy, just the same way a bold and busy pattern can transform a small room in your home to a charming and dynamic space.

Wall coverings can address a blank wall in your home. However, many condo dwellers today have a greater amount of windows than walls; the view and light is fantastic but it can also be challenging. With the volume of windows some of my clients have in their condos, window treatments can become a costly venture. When looking to add some type of window coverings to your home, why not consider a combination of blinds and sheers? Motorized blinds are an easy option for condo dwellers, providing privacy and sun control. However, blinds alone can sometimes seem unfinished. With the addition of sheers this can become an attractive option. Much like wallpaper, sheer fabrics have come a long way in recent years. These are not the sheers you may remember from your childhood. Instead the sheer fabric options available today are exciting, colourful, incredibly patterned and textured — just the perfect thing to frame out your vista.

HERE ARE A FEW TIPS TO GET YOU STARTED:

  • Look to create a stylish focal point in your room by wallpapering a single wall
  • Don’t be afraid of using large-scaled patterns in smaller spaces
  • Wallpapers are also available in peel and stick, making installation easier and often these papers are reusable, a great option for renters

As space is often at a premium in condos, one style that I like to suggest when designing for my clients is the ripple-fold drapery header. Ripple-fold is a simple, understated design for drapery. It has clean lines and the ability to highlight many large bold fabric patterns, but is exceedingly more elegant and custom looking in your living space than a basic grommet drapery header. A treatment such as ripple-fold, in combination with blinds, will complement your windows beautifully while also affording a tight, space saving stack-back of your drapery panels when not in use.

This style of drapery is best constructed using a fabric that has a great hang. Alendel Fabrics not only has a large selection of fabrics just perfect for this sort of window treatment, this season they have also launched a new line of wall coverings.

Become inspired with your walls and windows, and look to give them some personality and character.
