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?

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.
