Luxury Living: The Home Of Fine Decorators
Are you thinking about re-decorating your home... maybe adding a special room for your pets or your very own discotheque? Believe it or not, a local design firm is delivering those outrageous requests from their very own posh, South Florida headquarters. Check it out in tonight's Luxury Living report.
(WSVN) -- On the outside it's not very glamorous. But step inside and you'll find wall to wall home furnishings to make any home a luxury living designer showplace.
Rhonda Fine of the Home of Fine Decorators says, "What we've done is created a world of design here."
She adds, "We're really dedicated to design and that's why people seek us out because we are like the designer's designer."
The 100-thousand square foot space is called the Home of Fine Decorators -- one of the largest residential design firms in the country.
If you're lucky enough to be a client you can choose from a design team of more than 80 architects and interior designers, who can re-model or re-decorate your home.
Steven Zelman of the Home of Fine Decorators says, "We have a bedding department, where you can see all the bedding that is made for the home. Every single thing, the lighting is all done here. We make all the selections of furnishings. They never have to leave."
The design process begins in the media center, where you can come in person or teleconference your ideas over a large screen TV.
While an architect draws up plans, you can begin choosing everything from flooring to wall coverings.
Head upstairs to the furniture gallery, where you can check out which furniture pieces fit your new decor.
Rhonda says, "We take them through a process of design rather than just sell them furniture or draperies. It's worked for us and we've grown and expanded and grown and expanded."
Whitney Houston, Burt Reynolds, and Sami Sosa are just some of the firm's famous celebrity clientele.
Rhonda says, "We've done Sophia Lauren in the past, and we work for very high end developments."
And no request is too hard to pull off... they've designed gyms, indoor pool areas, and even a beauty salon.
Steven says, "We've had somebody who's a very special client that we're working on right now, who wanted a room just for her dog, that we had to have air conditioning and marble floors put down and had to have a back entrance so that the dog could go out when it wants to."
Now that's luxury.
If you want a taste of the good life, Home of Fine Decorators can work for as little as 50 dollars a square foot.
