Moving Forward

 


Santa Clara County has moved into the Yellow Tier of California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy as of May 19, 2021. While this is welcome news for our state and county as a whole, it does not change much in terms of our operating procedures at OVOLO Interiors. We continue to follow our state and local guidelines, guidance, and requirements which include the mandatory use of face coverings when meeting with clients or other persons, other COVID-19 prevention measures such as maintaining physical distance when possible, regularly sanitizing hands and tools, and encouraging virtual meetings when possible. Following these measures ensures the safety, health, and well-being of our company, clients, and community at large.

Our staff has also received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine and we encourage everyone to receive their vaccinations as well. Note that the state and local guidelines, guidance, and requirements do not allow for the removal of face coverings while performing the design business or during meetings for both vaccinated and unvaccinated persons. We apologize for any inconvenience at this time and we will keep our clients and potential clients updated if anything changes to the mandate.

From paint color selection, to choosing new furniture, to entire room designs, to kitchen and bathroom remodels, we're here and ready to help you on any of your design related projects. We continue to help cost-conscious homeowners and renters who would like a personalized design that speaks to them; we help our clients go from being unsure about starting and implementing a project to having a well-executed design that is custom-tailored to specific goals, objectives, and style in just 7 easy design stages. If you'd like to know more about how we can help with your specific design project, please contact us. Let’s get started on your next design project!

Space Planning Principles for your Entryway

Photo by Douglas Sheppard on Unsplash See these principles in action on our Houzz ideabook. Planning a new entryway or planning to redecorate/redesign your existing entryway? Below are some space planning principles to keep in mind for the entryways. In terms of rooms, the entryway, or foyer, gets easily overlooked, but it should be one of your first considerations. It’s needs to be both functional and fashionable: a place to enter the home from the outside on a day to day basis, a place to direct people to other areas of the home, and a place to give a first impression to guests. The front entry is where your front door is located and the back entry could be directly from a garage or could open onto a driveway (this entry could be the primary day to day entry of the home, depending upon it’s use). The back entry does not usually include sliding doors or french doors from a bedroom, living room, dining room, or kitchen; however, it may typically be included within a laun

Why hire an interior designer? What's the cost?

Hint: the cost to hire and interior designer is generally more than this. Photo by NeONBRAND on Unsplash When do most people think about when hiring an interior designer? Aesthetic choices: paint colors for the wall; curtains, blinds, or shutters; a new sofa and rug; fabric patterns for pillows; and so on. But there's a lot more that a designer can add to a home. A professional designer can go beyond mere cosmetics to ensure that the whole room feels harmonious through and through, from the space plan (floor plan) to the finishing details to yes, fabric and wall color choices. The designer also deals with a whole host of stores, vendors, contractors, electricians, painters, other artists, and more depending upon the project. A good interior designer will take your needs, personality, tastes, and lifestyle into account, not just thrust their own style upon you and assume your needs for the project. A good interior designer will also take the time to build relationships and

Space Planning Principles to Live By

Photo by Sergey Zolkin on Unsplash Let's talk about space planning, which leads to the basic layout of a room. But first, it starts with an in-depth analysis of how the space is to be used, taking into account all who live in the home and even some visitors to the home. Rooms and spaces within rooms are zoned to account for different activities that take place in a space. For example, a large open-concept great room may have a zone for living (watching TV, reading a book, holding a casual conversation, etc) and a zone for dining (both day to day eating as well as dinner parties). Circulation zones that show how people will move through the space are defined in the space planning process; you don't want furniture to get in the way of people's expected movements. The space plan is finished by adding the furniture, decor, accessory, and artwork details. Some times, there are conflicts that need to be resolved during the space planning process. For example, perhaps a q
