According to interior designer Christine E. Whiteley, ASID of Concepts & Dimensions, the ultimate goal of an interior designer should be "to provide a master plan that balances an increase of enjoyment of the time spent at home - to the smart stewardship of how the priorities are budgeted." The foundation of a great design, she says, is a thorough understanding of a client's "values, personal style and priorities" that only can be achieved by being a good listener. Working with new construction and remodeling projects for more than 30 years, Whiteley has won several design awards, including the Home Builders and Contractors Association of Brevard Parade of Homes, Best in Category/Remodel as well as the National Dream Home Silver Award for Best Kitchen Remodel. Question: Space planning is important in the building process, but how can you help homeowners make the most of what they already have? What are some creative ways to use dining room space or formal living room space that is no longer used for the intended purposes? Whiteley: Step back from your daily routine and take a conscious look at the space you have available in your home and redefine its purpose to fit the way you live. For example, convert the formal dining room into your personal home gym, a music room or home office. The space is now functioning daily instead of holidays only. Q: What are some ways that green practices are becoming more prevalent in interior design in existing homes as well as in newly built homes? Whiteley: With repurposed furnishings, clients can redefine, reupholster, refinish and rediscover. Whiteley: I listen to both the "wish list" as well as the frustrations and ask a lot of questions. Part of my role in the design collaboration is to bring a fresh approach to what the client often sees as their "standard situation." Q: How can interior design simplify people's lives and make them more balanced? How do you change the mindset that design is only for looks, not for function? Whiteley: The beauty enhances your daily experience, and the practical supports your priorities and lifestyle.

The Realist and the Dreamer... The Two Faces of the Designer Christine Whiteley is one of those lucky few. "That's the challenge and the stimulus of being in this profession," she maintains. She believes that good design comes from the intertwining of many elements, including the client's budget. One of the touchstones upon which Christine founded her business, Concepts & Dimensions, is a thorough understanding of her client's intentions, needs, and desires, before she begins any project. She describes her clients as "successful and self confident people who know their lifestyle and priorities. They want to work in a collaborative design setting, which also provides the service of project management. She maintains one of the key elements of design is "listening". Proof of the truth of what she says lies in the large number of "repeats" and referrals she completes each year. The realist and the dreamer - the two sides of Christine Whiteley. Has she been successful at utilizing her highly creative talents within the constraints of the practical aspects of the projects? She certainly has. Ask any of her clients.

Most homeowners have a similar aspiration -"... to use the room with the fireplace as a gathering area," says Christine Whiteley, interior designer and owner of Concepts and Dimensions.
From there, the possibilities abound. On a recent project, Whiteley worked with a couple looking for a warm, contemporary design with a south Florida flair to complement their Merritt Island home. Because the couple entertain a large extended family on a regular basis, they wanted this area of the home to feel especially comfortable. "They wanted to be able to see the fireplace and the television at the same time," Whiteley said. This was achieved with a streamlined design. In keeping with the themes throughout the home, the gas fireplace was framed with smooth black granite. For this project, Whiteley said, the owners wanted to maintain the home's traditional atmosphere but correct the proportional issues. "Our room was dominated by this fireplace that had copious amounts of brick. Christine came up with this design that stays true to the turn of the century time period and masters the scale and proportion of the space. "For this one, Jim Correa, of RoomScapes of Brevard and I came up with a massive, but appropriate, mantel and corbels," said Whiteley. "Prior to that, the mantel had no grounding. It was just floating in a sea of brick." Incorporating the "Ralph Lauren, Tennessee traditional feel" her clients wanted, Whiteley applied 48 inch hammered tin square panels on top of the brick above the fireplace.

A project two years in completion, my wife and I started this having known and worked with Christine Whiteley in the past.
The project encompassed the historical renovation of two Cocoa River side homes into a B&B, as well as the renovation of a garage apartment along the way. All three were badly in need of some TLC. The degree of which, neither of us had imagined. Christine brought the expected expertise of an interior designer to the effort; successful experience in new construction and remolding, knowledge of period styles and an ability to listen, understand and execute our vision. Luckily for us, she also brought to our project other attributes not listed on her web page. A critical one was that Christine has assembled a team of the best tradesmen in the county that include carpentry, custom wood work, wood flooring, tile work, and electricians and plumbers and painters, to name a few. Along with the tradesmen, Christine has in her stable a long list of service providers to meet most any requirement; window dressings, lighting, kitchen appliances, electronics, bathroom glass, drafting services and so many more. Having experienced fist hand, for example, the effects of improper plumbing after a wall is closed up, or any of the other issues that can develop after the completion of a project, then knowing that all the work was being done by skilled and experienced tradesman was a one less to worry. If you look at Christine's web page you will only find project management mentioned only under a testimonial. If truth be known, it is an expertise that Christine brings to any project. The ability to keep a project on time and budget is a gift any owner can appreciate! Delays in work due to miss scheduling or lack of materials can be expensive. Working with tradesmen can be challenging as can be keeping them on the job. The management of these issues by Christine was superb. Now that our project is complete, both my wife and I are exceptionally pleased with the results. The two historical restorations have exceeded all expectations. In April of this year we were asked to put the Cottage House of the B&B on the Brevard County Historical Tour! (I am quietly expecting to be asked next year to have the Main House of the B&B on the Historical Tour.) Christine executed and led the project from beginning to end. Comments overheard from guests visiting the SolRisa Inn B & B Grand Opening, as they viewed the accomplishments of Christine Whiteley. I've known Christine for many years; SolRisa Inn is not our first project. Restoring the 1914 home and transforming it into a B & B was so rewarding that I hope it will not be our last! My husband and I were absentee owners for several months of the year; Christine provided seamless project management. A consummate professional, she brings the right team together on the job to get it done on time, on budget, and right the first time. Her design, based on form and function, proved itself the night of October 4th 300 people toured our small inn in two hours. Flow, interest points and gathering places occurred just as she planned. The stream of positive comments was non-stop. Christine Whiteley designs for you - how you live and use your space, to your tastes and preferences; not to some fad or fashion whim. When she is finished, you feel that the place is truly yours. Christine, thank you for putting this team together! Christine is very easy and fun to work with. She has access to endless sources to provide unique detail for your project while keeping in mind your budget constraints. She puts together a comprehensive and impressive bid package that addresses all aspects of the project up front. I would definitely recommend her to anyone planning a remodel or new project. When my husband and I knew we would be retiring to live in the home that my parents had custom built in the early seventies, we also knew that we did not want to change its essential character and personality When we shared this desire with Christine, she described the home as "rustic and refined" and agreed to use this as her designing principle. Christine Whiteley has received so much positive feedback from her clients that she feels honored to share a few of the recommendations.
