Point of View
Quote: “The addition of window shades hooked up to a remote control in our home was the ultimate in ‘Sensational’ convenience.”
Quote: “ Wilma has again provided the artistry diversity and beauty we have come to expect from this, Professional.”
- How did you find out about Sensational SEAMS?
We were referred to Sensational Seams and most especially Wilma Kulyk by a friend when we first moved to Newcastle. After moving to our next home in Brighton it was a foregone conclusion to consult with Wilma in using her ingenuity and creative prowess once again.
- What exciting thing happened that made you call Sensational SEAMS?
We needed professional support and assistance to help us complete the window coverings in our new home. Sensational Seams came highly recommended by a new neighbour
- Why did you trust Sensational SEAMS to solve your design problem?
Following our initial meeting and discussions with Wilma we made other enquiries for designs and designers. Ultimately, Sensational Seams became our preferred choice for the professional design and installation at our home.
- What solutions were provided for your home?
Our principal concern at this home was not so much window coverings but more in the line of window decor.
- Describe how you felt when the installation was complete:
Wilma has again provided the artistry diversity and beauty we have come to expect from this Professional.
- What does this new look mean to you and how has it changed the way you view your home?
Wilma has made this home feel truly like our home.
- What is it that you loved most about working with Sensational SEAMS?
Quality and artistry.
In 2001, we were called in to create custom window treatments for Doug & Flor’s brand new home, right here in Newcastle. From the first time meeting them, their desire for attention to detail was very evident, and their aspiration to create something unique with superior quality was priority. All the rooms in their home were adorned, adding drapery in the Living Room and Dining Room, and Valances for each room in their home, along with HunterDouglas Shades and Blinds. When Doug and Flor told me they were moving away, I was delighted to be invited in to help them with their new home. Taking such great care of their investment over the 20+ years has paid off, and we were able to re-create some of the drapery window treatments into something new and fresh for their new home in Brighton.
We added new HunterDouglas Silhouette Shades in the Kitchen to match the existing Dining Room Shades, and a functional Duette Vertiglide for the Patio Door in the Sunroom now means easy “door-like” operation with superior heat control and minimal stacking with full view onto the deck. Re-created Valances for both rooms in the same fabric but with different styles really made Doug and Flor feel like they were “home” again in their new location. A bench seat cushion on the family heirloom adds extra seating when family and guest come for a meal at the table.
The Remote Controlled PowerView Shades for the Master Bedroom and Guest Room provide both privacy and heat control at the touch of a button. Not having to reach in behind the bed to operate the shades, Doug & Flor love the intelligence the PowerView provides that simplify their life.
Words from Wilma:
Window Treatments do so much more than just provide function, security and light control. Over the years, they have proven to provide colour, design and a sense of comfort, creating a home with warmth and a place to entertain family and guests with pride and satisfaction. They truly bring out the character and personal style of the people living in the home. And that’s why we do what we do…..with clients that have become friends over all the years. Thank you Doug & Flor for your amazing hospitality and friendship. Working with you is ALWAYS such a delight. May your new location prove to be a place where all your family and friends continue to meet because of your great love and care for them.
