Home Designs Master Has Moved | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer Saturday, Feb 22 2014

Moving-house

http://valentinaexpressions.com

ValenzanoDo you recognize this icon at the left? It is the Home Designs Master’s old home by me Valentina Cirasola, Interior-Fashion Designer.

This site will still exist to let visitors know about the move to a new address, but it will be inactive. In the middle of February 2014, I moved the design blog into a new site http://valentinaexpressions.com 

Here you will find many items grouped together, such as my three books, my organized trips to Italy and more stuff. In the same site you can enjoy my three blog columns as well:
Home Master Designs, The Good Life and Friday Fashion.

I asked the WordPress Angels to help me migrate the blog from one site to the other. The process was seamless, but unfortunately all the Likes and Comments I received in four years of blogging are lost, the WP Angels told me the comments wouldn’t line up with the blog they were written for.  It seems as for four years I wrote to the walls, it looks very lonely, but  that’s the way it is, moving to a new home takes a few adjustments.
http://valentinaexpressions.com

All of you followers and readers have migrated too with the blogs, I am sure I will see your blogs coming in my email notification, but I do need your help in getting back all the Likes and Comments on any of my blogs as a real person and not a robot.
The blog awards I received through the years are still there in a new page called Blog Awards Collection and I thank everybody gratefully for awarding my blogs so many times.

Helping Designing With Care And Love | By: Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer Tuesday, Feb 11 2014 

The last three months of last year I was submerged with projects to develop online, projects I would have never considered when the work of an interior designer was only face-to-face and in the home of a client. Three years ago, I decided to add online consultations to my services, to help people with a tight budget.

Color Scheme1
Online projects are quick, often not complicated and do not engage me for six months to a year. People hire me for only a few hours of consultation via Skype and the rest is in their hands. Some people who have seen those projects I posted on social sites were kind to say “it’s nice and simple” another way to gently say “it’s too simple”. Yes, I hear you, projects online are simple because they are for people who want professional opinions and ideas, but want to challenge themselves to do it. However, as much as projects can be simple, they require the same efforts from me to produce something aesthetically pleasing and affordable. It would be a waist of my efforts to give someone something they can’t afford.

Color Scheme2

Aside from the simple projects that come almost every week, my online consultations have helped far away customers with large remodeling projects. In fact I designed a kitchen in England, a living room, studio and entry in a house in France, a kitchen and conservatory in Florida and a few others around the country without moving an inch from my desk, all via Skype. New floor plans drawn up and spaces redesigned by me the professional was the object of all these projects, hiring the labor to execute my designs, supervision and resolving problems that might arise during construction was left to the client.

In online consultations, due to lack of personal contact, there is no touching, hand shake, sharing a cup of coffee together, or taking a client to lunch, people only talk to me through a computer screen and it becomes almost impossible to cultivate a client. To avoid having impersonal conversation it is important to listen well, to be compassionate, make them feel loved, show the same care as for large projects and sell only what they want and give them only what they need.

My services have the same value, fees are not discounted and my knowledge doesn’t change because I consult online. The savings is in getting a few hours of my expertise, versus hiring me from concept to completion. Doing designs online has its downfall: often contractors take advantage of cutting corners if the designer is not on board checking on every little details, therefore if my design concepts have changed and at the end the project doesn’t look the same, I will not publish it.

Color Scheme3

Here I am showing one online project for a college woman in her 20s, who gravitated my design decisions around a large brown leather sofa she owned before she met me. The scheme #3 is her final choice. I ordered a few club chairs to fill up her empty living room, seamstress sewed pillows and curtains, selected an Ikat rug, a few lights, a coffee table with seating and shipped everything to her.

I expected to see a more vibrant and upbeat taste in a young woman, this to me is very traditional, but this is exactly what she wanted. She is happy and that’s all it matters. Ciao,
Valentina

Home Couture | By: Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer Friday, Feb 7 2014 

CouturedHome

(Find all these pieces at Joss and Main)

Does it make you feel like a million dollar when you can come home to a stylish place, clean, uncluttered and coutured to your need? I think it does.

Decide the type of person you are: traditional, modern, eclectic, country, the list could be very long.

This will give you the idea of the furniture to buy, or to take from different rooms. Rotating furniture pieces from one room to another will change the energy around the house, just like rotating the tires of the car will not wear them on one side only.

Select the colors to reflect your spirit and consider the light exposure. Color contrast sharpens everything and puts in focus one piece at a time. If a few pieces of furniture are superb in style and character, all pieces will go automatically together and give the room harmony of form and coordination. Don’t be afraid to be imaginative! Ciao,

The Seven Wonders of The Blogosphere | By: Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer Wednesday, Feb 5 2014 

Make someone happy today, it will make you happy too.
She called it “Award Encounter of the Seventh Kind” when Beverly Harvey received seven awards in one day from one of her blog followers. Beverly’s favorite subject is all about Cats. If you have a cat or you are thinking of getting one, you might want to follow Beverly to get her point of view, tips and suggestions on cats. http://moggiepurrs.wordpress.com/2014/01/09/award-encounters-of-the-seventh-kind/ Thank you Beverly for nominating me with seven awards.

It is a big surprise to receive blog awards from readers and followers we don’t even know except from their writing. I had my surprise too when Beverly awarded me with the same seven awards and that’s the reason I called this thank you page “The Seven Wonders of The Blogosphere”. What can I say? I feel very honored and humbly accept them all.

Gold Rush | By: Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer Friday, Jan 31 2014 

VC girlFridays will be dedicated to a different topic: fashion in the world. Today I am serving GOLD.

Gold is a color of royals in any country, the color of winners, success and abundance. At the Olympics winners receive gold medals. Gold is associated with elegance, sophistication and wealth. It is the power of the sun and represents masculine energy. At important events is a must to wear something gold.
This spring 2014, there is no limit where and when to wear something gold, we can wear it even in the daytime without appearing vulgar with an inflated sense of self-worth.

Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad, described as the designer who “makes women feel like goddesses” presented in Paris his spring collection based on floral and gold. His dresses envision gardens of heaven and femininity.

Dolce & Gabbana Haute Couture portrays an abundance of floral fantasy dresses topped with fantasy gold jewelry. Some of their creations are reproductions of paintings from Van Gogh and Renoir for which copyright reproductions had to be negotiated. I absolutely adore their haute couture collection this year!

Wearing gold jewelry will attract the power of the sun to you, silver jewelry will detract that energy from you and put you under the spell of the moon, a feminine energy.

What do we do in the home? Empower yourself with some gold accessories and the energy of sun, bring in the sophistication of gold and its magnetic positivism.

Friday Fashion | By: Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer Friday, Jan 24 2014 

VC girlFridays will be dedicated to a different topic: fashion in the world.
I will bring you some curiosities, trends, novelties, ways to wear garments or how to adapt runways fashion to everyday life. I will start with Valentino, the king of stylists and a magician with a pencil.

His inspiration, or I should say the inspiration of the two designers working under the name of Valentino, came from imaginary tribes. In Paris Fashion Week they displayed magnificent fabrics and really showed that their fantasy flew towards  far away ethnic groups. The coiffes on the models’ heads seem to have a Tudor’s resonance. The mixture of eras and tribal inspiration is stunning. However, colors are quite dark for being spring and summer garments. In the video, you can see the entire collection.

Au contraire the Haute Couture autumn/winter 2013-14 is regal, with Medieval inspiration, characterized by opulent rich fabrics, but very wearable, in my opinion.

If you have a remanent 70s fashion in your closet, gipsy fabric, ethnic patterns, chunky jewelery, this  might be the right time to bring it out and give it a second life with a refreshed look.  Ciao,

Identity Theft On Social Media……Is Rampant | By Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer Wednesday, Jan 22 2014 

I would like to bring to the attention of all my readers and followers a real problem we all have today just by being present on social media. One of my dear friends on Facebook  had her identity profile stolen yesterday along with pictures. It caused her a ton of anguish, because the imposter was using her name and identity to ask for money in her circle of friends and who knows what else would have happened if she had not been alerted by one of her friends in the early morning of strange activities going on under her name. It took many hours of her precious working day,  a lot of efforts from her friends watching her back  and taking actions along with her,  but the impostor is now gone and so is the problem.

Virtual friends can turn in real friends and this is one of the moments when we can all come true for each others and act together making sure our good people are not defamed by malicious individuals who can injure someone’s name and reputation in a instant.

Please take a few moments of your time to read these two posts written by my friend Carra Riley, the person whose identity profile was stolen and our friend Tric Weyerbacher Ortiz  who helped her in many ways.

http://tricnology.com/blog/facebook-identity-hijacker/

The same situation can happen to anyone. If you ever see some funny, strange or uncharacteristic activities going on under somebody’s name you trust and care to follow, please make sure to tell that person at once. It’s our social responsibility. Ciao,
Valentina

Xhilaration Ruffle Curtain | By: Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer Wednesday, Jan 15 2014 

http://myatozchallenge.com/2012/02/20/welcome-to-my-a-to-z-challenge-2/Welcome to my personal A to Z Challenge on the subject of Home. The goal, in a year time, is to elaborate and dissect topics regarding the Home not as containers of stuff, but as a cocoon for the soul, mind and heart. I will touch on decorations, style, trends, history of home and sometimes technical information.  My challenge is now over!
http://myatozchallenge.com/?s=Valentina+Cirasola+

To find a topic for the letter X was hard, there isn’t anything in home décor starting with X that suited my taste, thus I left it for last to close the series of my challenge Home From A To Z. I found instead a very inexpensive and fun way to cover windows.

The Xhilaration Ruffle Window Panels. They have been designed to add a soft feminine touch to any window with five ample ruffled layers that create a soft texture. They are transparent gauze to let to sunlight in and still show the view of the outside. If privacy is needed, add the light block fabric behind it. Colors are limited, only white, black and rosy color are available. They are available on Ebay for the magic price of $16.99. Ruffle pillows make a nice parure with the ruffle curtains.

Xhilaration Zebra Bed in a bag Twin Set is available in hot pink with zebra print, on Ebay $49.99, or scroll design for  $59.99.  All together it would make a perfect ensemble for a teenage girl room.
There is good décor out there for everyone, every budget and every style. The important thing is to coordinate all the items in a room and to layer textures with an artistic touch. No one will ever know the décor is inexpensive. Your home begins with your story,  tell it in your own fantastic way.

I wrote 26 posts, one for each letter of the alphabet. I had fun in the process and at times I felt the pressure. I hope to have kept you interested and inspired to create a home that is only yours and not a copy of a magazine.

I want to thank Julie Dawn Fox http://myatozchallenge.com/author/juliefox  – a British expat in Portugal for being a gracious host of this wonderful idea of anything from A To Z challenge. Now, I will return to my comfortable one time a week blogging. Ciao,

Riser With A Skirt | By: Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer Tuesday, Jan 14 2014 

http://myatozchallenge.com/2012/02/20/welcome-to-my-a-to-z-challenge-2/Welcome to my personal A to Z Challenge on the subject of Home. The goal, in a year time, is to elaborate and dissect topics regarding the Home not as containers of stuff, but as a cocoon for the soul, mind and heart. I will touch on decorations, style, trends, history of home and sometimes technical information. One more post and my challenge is over.
http://myatozchallenge.com/?s=Valentina+Cirasola+

Lucky are the people who have a staircase in their home! If I had stairs in my home I would never go to the gym again. Going up and down the stairs everyday and many times during the day is a good cardiovascular exercising and the best way to stay fit. Besides, staircase offers a good opportunity to turn the space underneath the stairs into extra storage for shoes, wines, books, or a small room for some activity as writing.

In Europe where building code is not so strict people can get away with open stairs, but in America is not possible, stairs must have a handrail. Stair rails installed after March 15, 1991, must not be less than 36” in height.
However one very important rule is that if a rail has a balusters, also called spindles made of stone or wood and sometimes of metal, it cannot allow the passage of a 4” sphere between balusters/spindles. This rule was made to avoid small children to go through the spindles and make a long fall to next floor. It happened to me when I was five years old in Europe in my grandmother’s ancient home. Playing with my brother on the stairs, I went through the rail, flew from a height similar to a second storey of todays’ home, hitting the marble floor so hard that I was in a coma for 45 days. I can’t even begin to think how devastated my parents must have been.


Each part of a stair has a name and a rule.
The handrail with the fundamental rule already described.
The tread is where we put our foot to start the climbing. The minimum tread depth must be 10”.  I like the 12” tread for better comfort.
The riser is the vertical area between treads. The maximum riser height must be 7-3/4”. This part can be very decorative and one can have fun with tiles, wallpaper, hand drawings and whatever fancies the homeowner, or it can be left plain, while the tread can emphasize beautiful material.
The skirt or bracket is the decorative design created on the exposed wall between the riser and the tread. Is it important to have it? Not really, but it exalts and glorifies a staircase made with beautiful material, sinuous form and interesting rail. Skirts are for both traditional style or contemporary style homes.
Newel posts is the post supporting one end of a handrail at the top or bottom of a flight of stairs. There is no limit to fantasy designs, the newel is the end of the stairs, make it attractive.
If you go to my Pinterest board Up And Down the Stairs, you will see some glorious staircases. http://www.pinterest.com/vcvalentina/up-and-down-the-stairs/

Stairs make the focal point of the house, especially if they start in the entry. It is of the utmost importance to design them with flair, otherwise they will be only an imposing presence in your home. If the stairs are straight, soften them with plans, color, lights and water feature. Ciao,
Valentina

It’s A Lowboy! | By: Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer Monday, Jan 13 2014 

http://myatozchallenge.com/2012/02/20/welcome-to-my-a-to-z-challenge-2/Welcome to my personal A to Z Challenge on the subject of Home. The goal, in a year time, is to elaborate and dissect topics regarding the Home not as containers of stuff, but as a cocoon for the soul, mind and heart. I will touch on decorations, style, trends, history of home and sometimes technical information. In two days my challenge will be over.
http://myatozchallenge.com/?s=Valentina+Cirasola+

It’s a boy or it’s a lowboy has the same assonance, no, no newborn in my household, just playing on words.
Lowboy is a low dresser on legs and a few drawers that was so much in fashion in the 18th century England. The function of a lowboy started as a dressing table with a mirror, side drawers to keep cosmetics, facial utensils and accessories for hair, open in the front to allow a woman to sit on a small chair and prepare herself for the day. The most valuable pieces have the typical details of Queen Ann furniture, cabriole legs, pad foot, shell decorations and brass drawer pulls. It continued in the same style through the Georgian era and later Chippendale furniture maker produced it in large quantity. This has been a style forever popular in American homes decorated traditionally in Queen Ann, Georgian and Chippendale style.  Are you wondering if there is a Tallboy to go with a Lowboy? Yes, there is and it’s a very tall chest of drawers on legs, sometimes with a wardrobe attached.


In modern homes, an antique lowboy might be found in foyer or in empty corners as filler and seldom is used as a dressing table. Modern master bathrooms inclusive of all the finest amenities, built-ins and stations for each activity have reduced the need of filling rooms with so many small pieces of furniture. Modern versions of lowboy look more like a credenza than a dressing table, especially in the style of mid-century pieces. Their function has changed as well, we might use them for storing linens, tableware or electronic equipment and that’s why their place now is in dining and living areas and not in the bedroom. The container furniture used today for storing clothes are simply called dresser drawers.

If you have an old piece of lowboy and feel the urge to refurbish it, hold that thought for a while. Show it to a furniture appraiser, you might have something valuable, but if it’s painted it over, the value will be gone. Ciao,
