WE SUCCESSFULLY HELPED A CLIENT WITH ART PROCUREMENT AND INSTALLATION

When it comes to finding the right art piece for a client’s home it is important to pay attention to the size of the space and other décor and furniture elements in the room.

At Arise Interiors we offer Art Procurement and Placement Services because we believe finding the perfect piece of artwork and frame takes professional direction. Additionally we have experience with art collections and partnerships with local art galleries. We are in a position to showcase curated art to facilitate the process of finding the works of art that fit any style or personality.

Our Process

MEET OUR CLIENT

We recently worked with a client on their home remodel in Bird Rock, California. They really love art and design and needed some help finding the right pieces.

  • Talked through their taste and style
  • Looked at what they have chosen to buy already
  • Following a presentation we brought in art from 4 different artists and had a great time
  • One artist came in person

The client bought 4 pieces, we framed another 2 pieces (simple prints that look great now) and re-hung the art in the whole house. It’s like they have an entire new art collection!

The final result

Having a series of art throughout a home or using a gallery wall can be the perfect way to give the space a cohesive design appearance. There are a couple ways to create an art series, this includes using pieces from the same artist, or things that share a subject or artwork that revolves around a central theme.

Whether you are looking for one specific art piece for your home or expanding an art collection – at Arise Interiors we have the experience to bring your vision to life.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

It takes a dream team of amazing clients, galleries, and artists
to complete a successful project.

Custom Home Building Made Easy, San Diego Interior Design

Custom Home Building Made Easy, San Diego Interior Design

It is not easy to build a custom home in San Diego. As you get the ball rolling, you have more than a million things to consider and address. All of those choices can quickly feel overwhelming – almost like every decision is more important than the last. When you begin making plans for the look and feel of your new home, you’ll want to be sure to call in a San Diego interior designer! Their design expertise can make a significant difference on the success of your custom build project. With their professional insights and support, you can craft the home of your dreams without the headache and hassle of going it alone. Let’s examine a few of the unique advantages that come from working with a designer when building a home.

 

Big Picture Focus

You might have a crystal-clear vision of how you want your custom home to look and feel. That original dream can start to fade as you meet with architects, builders, and the like. You can get bogged down in the details quickly and your vision can become diluted by outside influences. Soon enough, your custom build plan looks entirely different from your ideal space. An experienced San Diego interior designer can help keep your initial design goals intact.

When you bring in an interior designer on your custom build project, they will work to gain a comprehensive understanding of your intentions. Your designer will take into account your goals, visions, budget, and much more to fully comprehend your vision. Once your designer has a thorough understanding of the entire scope of your project, they can begin to make recommendations on design choices that are aligned with your vision. With their professional support and expertise, your vision for your custom home will have been brought to life.

 

Make The Right Choices The First Time

How terrible would it feel to finish your custom build home only to realize that you dislike the interior design of one or two rooms? During the space planning process, you might have thought you’d enjoy a certain floor plan. Or perhaps you initially loved the idea of some bedroom furnishings or fixtures. After all the time and planning that goes into designing and building a custom home in San Diego, you want to ensure that even the most minute of details are exactly what you’re looking for.

You can avoid these expensive mistakes by bringing in a San Diego interior designer during the planning phase of your new home. An interior designer will help you visualize how your preferences will look once applied and offer guidance on each and every decision By leveraging their years of interior design experience, they can help ensure that you are making the right decisions for your new home.

An interior designer is, after all, a creative expert! They know how to best translate the goals you have for your space into the right floor plans, furnishings, fixtures, finishes, and more. Guided by the right designer, you’ll make the right choices now so you don’t kick yourself over them later.

 

Keep Your Custom Build On The Schedule

If you’ve ever been involved in a construction project before, then you know how quickly and easily custom build projects can get off track. From finances and miscommunications to poor weather and the aSan Diegoability of subcontractors, things can quickly get derailed. When your custom build schedule diverts from the original scope, it can cost you a great amount of time, money, and energy. You can keep things moving in the right direction by having a San Diego interior designer present during the construction process.

You have work, personal obligations, family, and friends to worry about. The constant barrage of details that you’d be responsible for during the building phase of a new home is just one more thing to add to your to-do list. A San Diego interior designer can take all of that off your plate, helping you bring your vision to life without overloading your schedule with the tedium of contractor relations. Some designers, including our team here at Arise Interiors, will even make site visits to observe the progress of construction and report back to you. With an experienced designer at the helm, you have the perfect dynamo to spearhead getting your project done and done right.

A San Diego Kitchen Remodel

This newly remodeled Modern Rustic Hacienda kitchen offers a space for a young family to enjoy. Equipped with a modern island, wood cabinets, handmade tiles, marble counters and clean details. With every San Diego kitchen remodel, we consider outdoor spaces as well.  With views and access to the backyard, the family can live and entertain just as they wish.

V I S I O N

The vision was to  create a perfectly harmonious blend of modern with historic. Inspiration was a larger Mediterranean tiles from behind the hood and partial open concept kitchen.

Before and After

KITCHEN

BEFORE

The original kitchen was dark, cramped and dated. This bustling family was looking for better flow and a comfortable and attractive space to be together.

AFTER

The kitchen was expanded into unused patio space from the large back yard.  Custom cabinetry on the perimeter provides ample storage and counter space. An island anchors the large room and provides a sensible flow.  A custom built-in banquet offers a cozy corner to dine.

Houzz Feature | 10 Design Tips for Preventing Slips in the Bathroom

“Find out how to create a safe bathroom environment without losing the benefit of tile and other waterproof materials”

Union Tribune Feature | Beautiful design, with kids and pets? Yes, you can have both.

“If you live in a household with kids and pets, you can also trick out your home in winning ways to include the evolving needs of your children, dogs and cats. “

“It’s better to use higher-end good material for ease of maintenance and longevity. And it’s just a bit more green because we’re not redoing things all the time.” – Traci Taylor

Traci Taylor, principle designer at Arise Interiors, was interviewed for this piece by the San Diego Union Tribune, by Caron Golden.

Traci believes it is crucial to take kids into account when designing kitchens and bathroom, two of the most used spaces in a home.

“When we have clients who have the opportunity to do creative solutions, we’ll do things like toe-kick ladders to help kids reach the countertop level to help cook,” she said.

Traci is all about longevity of materials. Clients with young children sometimes suggest using cheap furniture, like Ikea. But Traci points out that it’s likely to get chipped or break and is going to need to be replaced after a couple of years.

“It’s better to use higher-end good material for ease of maintenance and longevity. And it’s just a bit more green because we’re not redoing things all the time.”

For dogs and cats, there are both cool design solutions that incorporate their needs, as well as defensive solutions that will help keep them from ruining your furnishings.

Traci is excited about small pocket doors that function as high-end dog gates.

“Instead of a baby gate to keep a pet in or out of a room, there are custom-designed pocket doors about 30 inches or 36 inches high that fit in with the rest of the home design,” she said.

Taylor has built little kennels into kitchen cabinet areas that also hold food, leashes and other pet paraphernalia.

During the interview Traci shares specific tips on materials to use for easy cleaning in various rooms in the house:

  • Steel-topped counters can be great for families with kids. They’re don’t stain like granite and are easy to clean. Design by Traci Taylor of Arise Interiors. 

  • Use fun, colors, patterns and objects for a children’s bathroom — from shower curtains to towels, wallpaper and paint. They can easily be changed out as the children get older. Design by Traci Taylor of Arise Interiors. 

  • A removable slatted teak mat in this design by Traci Taylor of Arise Interiors helps keep fur from the drain when bathing dogs — and most of the grime of muddy kids.

Coastal San Diego Homes & Estates | Reflection on Mirrors Q&A with Traci Taylor, Arise Interiors

Coastal San Diego Homes & Estates | Reflection on Mirrors Q&A with Traci Taylor, Arise Interiors

“The best use of mirrors at home is to increase the amount of natural light in a room and creating a double view. “

“One of my favorite things to do is to use a mirror to reflect a piece of art — behind it or on an opposite wall — so you have double the impact.” – Traci Taylor

Traci Taylor, principle designer at Arise Interiors, was interviewed by Coastal San Diego Homes & Estates.

“When placed properly, mirrors can also enhance our surroundings as a design element. Smart technology has also equipped mirrors with computer screens, TVs, cameras and voice recognition. We asked Traci Taylor, principal of Arise Interiors in San Diego, to talk about how to use mirrors in the home.”

During the conversation Traci answered several questions about best placements for mirrors in the home. See one of the questions below:

Q: In your view, what is the best thing mirrors offer in interior design?
A: The best use of mirrors at home is to increase the amount of natural light in a room and creating a double view. For example, if you have an ocean view window, you can place a mirror on the opposite wall and have two ocean views, more natural light and more blue color than you could get with a coat of blue paint. The view can be of mountains or a green garden; a mirror will double it. You also increase your light source in the evenings by installing a mirror next to a table lamp. One of my favorite things to do is to use a mirror to reflect a piece of art — behind it or on an opposite wall — so you have double the impact. Of course, the same concept goes for clutter. If your mirror is placed in a cluttered room, you will have double the clutter.
