July 2014 - Get Ready for the MOVE!

Movin' on Up!

I hope everyone is having a great summer! We are about halfway through it. We have been doing our best to escape the 100º plus temps as have our clients. I have enjoyed hearing about all the trips.

Couple things - make sure you VOTE for us at Ranking Arizona. We greatly appreciate your support and have been Voted number 1 every year since 2012. So we hope we can keep our streak alive.

Well speaking of 100º plus temps - what better time to be moving than in July and August! Yes Candelaria Design is on the move! As many of you know, our Candelaria Design studio has been located in a wonderful, Al Beadle office building at the southwest corner of 12th Street and Campbell, since April of 2000. 14 years plus at this location and it has served to be a productive home for us.

But it is time to make a move and we are very excited to announce our upcoming relocation to the AmTrust Tower in Downtown Scottsdale. Our new studios will be located on the 4th Floor of the Tower and our elevator will bring you up from the Scottsdale Fashion Square parking structure and when you leave you will pop right down to the Neiman Marcus Women's Shoe Department….what could be better than that for my clients!

Our new offices are slightly larger than our current location but it is laid out so much nicer. Our decor will be clean, sleek, and simple infused with warm materials for a transitional vibe. Our reception area will feature a contemporary reception desk with a white washed, reclaimed brick backdrop feature wall from Telluride Natural Stone and of course a large screen TV always featuring our work and TV Show. We will then have two conference rooms in the new office which will allow us to have a lot more flexibility to set up for samples, consultants and in house team meetings and design charrettes. Then along with a few private office a Kitchen and Copy Room we will have a beautiful and large design studio for all of our staff's work stations with a central throw space and community table which will be great during working hours and equally functional for after hour parties and get togethers.

We are set to move in right before the Labor Day weekend and I cannot tell you how excited we are. Follow our move on our Candelara Design Facebook Page at Candelaria Design on Facebook.We will announce a Grand Opening Open House this fall once the temps come down and everyone is back in town. We want to thank so many of our vendors for helping us pull this all together. We will feature all of you and your work on a follow up Blog once the offices are complete and we can get some professional photos featuring your work.

Also - stay tuned to our show on The Design Network. We are changing our name from Architainment to Sketch with Season 2 that we will be releasing this coming month. Our opening episode will feature the transformation of one of our homes in Arcadia, along with our Guest Chef evening with Marcellino's Restaurante and the $5,000 we raised for St. Mary's Food Bank. This episode ties it all together. Other Episodes will feature our office move; a transform on another Candelaria Design home in Paradise Valley in time for our client's wedding which we will also feature; an amazing North Central home and its secret wine cellar, our extreme Guest Houses, and then great grand finale that you will hear more about as we get closer to the date…..stay tuned.
