Quote: “…a beautiful solution to protecting the interior against sun damage, providing privacy for us in the trailer and adding a fresh colour to the decor.”

Quote: “Our hearts beat faster! We had the biggest smiles on our faces and we knew it would be a pleasure to show off our new additions on our next trailer trip.”

Sensational Solutions:

  1. What exciting thing happened that made you call Sensational SEAMS?
    For this project, our "beloved" horse trailer with living accommodations had a problem with broken strings on our blinds. Since the trailer is our pride and joy for travel with our horses in Ontario and USA, we wanted everything to be in working order and looking gorgeous!
  2. Why did you trust Sensational SEAMS to solve your design problem?
    Wilma has done several projects for us in our house that have added to the enjoyment and protection from sun in our home.
  3. Describe the most challenging window or area in your home that needed attention.
    This project in our trailer involved having Wilma climb up to the bunk to measure and install our new blinds in very small spaces. Wilma also had to extend existing valences to accommodate the new blinds. The existing colours in our trailer are complex and required careful research to make a fit. We also wanted a change from our original beige blinds. Indigo did the trick! We would never have thought of that ourselves! In the trailer- Wilma had to operate with no hydro and limited lighting. Luckily the project was orchestrated during the warmer months!
  4. The Sensational Solution:
    Wilma had no problem bending, twisting and climbing into the tight spaces required for this project!Our existing valences were removed, extended and covered with beautiful contrasting braid to be re-installed with the new blinds. A unique colour for the new blinds was suggested by Wilma and it works beautifully!
  5. When the installation was complete:
    Our hearts beat faster! We had the biggest smiles on our faces and we knew it would be a pleasure to show off our new additions on our next trailer trip.
  6. What does this new look mean to you and how has it changed the way you view your home?
    Our trailer has been restored to wholeness and we anticipate the new blinds providing a beautiful solution to protecting the interior against sun damage, providing privacy for us in the trailer and adding a fresh colour to the decor.
  7. What is it that you loved most about working with Sensational SEAMS?
    When decorating projects come up in your life that require addressing in a safe, secure, professional, creative and practical manner - Sensational Seams is the way to go! Projects like these should be fun and satisfying and that is the way we have found our experience to be with Wilma. She has helped us with solutions for window treatment in our home office, dining area in our kitchen, windows in our sunroom, repairs to existing decor in our primary bedroom and now - our horse trailer!
    Wilma is so accommodating, patient and creative. She is respectful of our time and property. Her products are good quality and she added some very thoughtful touches in the course of her work for us.
  8. Words from Wilma:
    Well Keith and Lois, you have such a way with words. Thank you so much for the wonderful testimony, your added excitement, and creative and fun way of describing the project and outcome. You are always such a pleasure to work with, so accommodating, and you definitely keep my job challenging and interesting.
    I am so glad that you were willing to go with the bolder colour on the HunterDouglas Honeycomb Shades. They make such a great statement now, and really combine the look of all the upholstery pieces in your trailer.
    We had so much fun at the photo shoot, bringing out your beautiful horses, and I am very excited to feature your horse trailer with the living accommodations as Room of the Month. Your property is brilliant with Fall Colours, beautiful sunsets and a spectacular view. I also have a passion for horses, so this made the project even more special. Thanks for being willing to share your passion too, and include me in such a unique window treatment project!
