This one-on-one is the first step in bringing your customized dream home to life.
When it comes to renos, the DIY approachhas its place. But when you've seeking a fresh, new space that suits yourlifestyle as much as your personal style, that's where custom design comes in.
Creating a home that feels right beginswell before colours and cabinets are selected; it starts with a look at whatyour life is all about.
Maybe you have an extremely demandingprofession and need your home to be a serene, calming refuge. Maybe there'snothingyou love more than having a comfy place to watch movies with friends andfamily. Or perhaps you love cooking and entertaining and want your home to be ahub of activity.
We start with really working out thedesign you want: how you want your space to function and what It's going togrow into, says maison detre president Robert Capar. What does your homemean to you? It can become a place that's all the things you need it to be.When you change your home, you change your life.
Now, Western Living readers have the chance to win a private design consultation with Capar himself.
During the design consultation, he'll help thewinner develop a vision and aesthetic as to how they could function and existin their home.

And under Capar's guidance, maison detrehas amassed multiple prestigious awards for its thoughtful, stunning designs,including Ovation Awards from Homebuilders Association Vancouver and GeorgieAwards from the Canadian Home Builders AssociationBC.
He says the best reward, however, ishearing back from clients about living in their new home.
No two people are the same; It's notcookie cutter, he says. Everyone has a different focus and idea of what theylike and want. But in the end, finishes, colours, lighting, details, andfunctionality all have to come together to create a beautiful space.
To help bring ideas to life, maison detrehas a new showroom complete with a brainstorming room, where clients can seedifferent ideas presented on-screen in 3D. This allows them to visualize their spaceand see a new home come together right before their eyes.
