Sensational Solutions:

How did you find out about Sensational SEAMS?

Originally many years ago I was referred to Sensational Seams by a co-worker. Wilma did such a fantastic job that first time at our previous address, I just had to have her back to help

us with the window treatments at our new house.

What exciting thing happened that made you call Sensational SEAMS?

Wilma talked to us about what we envisioned for our home, then tweaked and expanded on it to give us the perfect design.

What solutions were provided for your home?

Wilma worked with us until we were satisfied, providing us with all the knowledge and expertise at her command. She also gave alternatives when needed. She was always available whenever we had concerns or questions.

Describe how you felt when the installation was complete:

We were excited to see the vision come to life.

What does this new look mean to you and how has it changed the way you view your home?

When we bought this house, it was obvious that it had been sadly neglected. Now our living room has the look and feel of professionalism that we are happy with.

What is it that you loved most about working with Sensational SEAMS?

Wilma’s adaptability and willingness to work with us until we were completely satisfied.

We selected a grey and tan floral design to co-ordinate with the furniture and area rug, and designed three custom upholstered cornice boxes to mirror the grand arch. The best cabinet maker I

know crafted the boxes and upholstered them so they were made with precision and detail to our specifications. It was important to them to disguise the outdoor gazebo from the view inside the home
so we selected HunterDouglas Silhouette Shades.

These premier window shadings bring in all the light and privacy needed with UV protection and sophistication. Custom side panels elaborate the window size and complete the grand look of the window layout.

Words from Wilma:

When you walk through the front door at Keith and Irene’s new home, the grand arch, cozy fireplace and side windows are the first thing you see. They have been long-time clients, and their move inspired them to call us back into their new home. Irene had seen a previous “Room of the Month” photo that we had done and wanted the same look. As our promise to our clients to never do the exact same treatment and fabric twice, we used that photos as inspiration, and “tweaked and expanded on it” to make her dream a reality.

It is such a pleasure to work with clients who appreciate precision and meticulous details. The extra time it takes to create one-of-a-kind window treatments is so gratifying. The first impression when walking into one’s home speaks volumes to its home owners and all who visit. It’s the attention to details with the of the placement of the floral pattern as well as the arch design that gives these masterpieces the grandeur and luxury of professionalism that both Keith and Irene were after. Another successful “Sensational Solution”. Thanks Keith and Irene for your confidence and contribution to this project. Enjoy your new home as much as you loved your previous one.
