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.

Christine Whiteley, Concepts & Dimensions

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 ...

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.
