It’s easy to overlook the beauty of everyday life. We think about what we see on a daily basis as ordinary, and thereby insignificant and unimportant. We get so caught up in the whirlwind of being busy all the time, forgetting to honour the magnificence of the present moment. We tend to move through the spaces and corners of our lives passively.
Modern design philosophy takes on the belief that the spaces of daily lives can be meaningful sanctuaries. Our spaces of work and enjoyment are not merely limited to their functional use. Just because a space has a specific intended purpose of utilization, doesn’t mean it also can’t be beautiful. Good design humanizes our surroundings, making them enjoyable to use and to gaze upon.
Personal style is a form of self-expression, a statement of the world we want to live in. Good design allows us to reflect and formulate a new life perspective. It allows us to see and move through life more consciously, with an appreciation and awareness for our environment. In many ways, it does what art can do for us – bring joy and hope to the most stressful and demanding moments in our lives.
Many people prefer to stay in the comfort of their own homes, for both work and play. There are now over 56 million freelancers in the US, with an increase of over 3 million in the past 5 years. As a freelancer, you spend most of your working hours at home, when you are not at a coffee shop or co-working space
This means that your home surroundings become your work environment. Therefore, it is worth considering transforming your home’s aesthetic and construction to allow to you to be productive. Imagine being able to wake up every morning and walk downstairs to make your morning cup of coffee while opening up your laptop to work at the counter of your dream kitchen. On the weekends, imagine reading a book or hosting a friends and family gathering in your dream living room. This sounds like fantasy, but it is actually very practical.
Most people wishing for their dream home will look to relocate to a brand new city, or purchase a brand new home on the market. However, you can actually build your dream home to reflect your lifestyle and personality by working with a custom home designer and builder.
To explore this, we reviewed Sailhouse Custom Homes, a company who has been transforming the Newport Beach housing landscape as a custom home developer. They plan and execute all stages of building a custom home, from zoning to design to construction to completion. They offer 3 types of services for homeowners: the signature home, the custom home, and the remodelled home.
The company’s founder has more than two decades of experience with real estate in Southern California and founded Sailhouse Custom Homes in 2009. Every home in Sailhouse’s portfolio reflects a distinct style. They are excellent at achieving a noticeably striking cohesion of both functional and design elements. The designers focus on the homeowner’s distinct sense of style to ensure that the final outcome reflects their tastes and preferences.
