Diane Page is an award-winning Interior Designer specializing in residential projects, something she has been doing exclusively for nearly 25 years. Recently, Diane talked with us about a client’s conservatory project she has been working on with Tanglewood:
The Project –
Diane was challenged by a client to help create an enclosure featuring glass-work that would allow them to feel the “great outdoors” comfortably and stylishly inside, starting from where a mere trellis with pavers previously was. Diane suggested a solution from conservatory architecture – an “orangery” – a Particular Passion of hers.
Originating in Renaissance Italy, orangeries feature expanses of glass and lattice work that were originally meant to incubate the fruit trees and other exotic plants of the Elite. Today, they offer a warm and cozy environment where home-owners can spend their leisure time enjoying the natural light of the Great Outdoors, indoors.
Diane shares her passion for the past with Tanglewood’s crafts-people and in-house designers, a trait that came in handy as the Clients expanded their initial idea of a screened-in porch to a fully formed, enclosed room with glass and wood treatments. Listening to her clients Diane relates that she told them that if they wanted that, “then why don’t we just do something beautiful!”
Diane chose to work with Tanglewood Conservatories to make that “something beautiful” a reality. With our extensive conservatory experience and expertise, Diane knew that We would be a natural choice to work with. Like Diane, Our People rely on the knowledge of the past to bring innovation to the future – Your Future. (It’s a passion commonly found in Tanglewood’s Collaborators, Designers, Craftspeople, and Suppliers – See our previous blog post about Our recent Italian trip to meet the crafts-people at Brombal, crafters of the custom Windows and Doors featured in our constructions.
Diane relates that her clients were very enthusiastic at her suggestion. Working together with Tanglewood, Diane and Tanglewood helped bring her clients’ desires to fruition by designing and crafting a 263 square-foot, China-White interior-painted home-addition constructed of Sapele Mahogany Wood, and featuring such additional details as:
Ø A Grooved Wood Ceiling
Ø An Extruded Aluminum Glazing System
Ø Built-In Gutters with a Copper Lining
Ø And Motorized, Easily-operable Windows to Effortlessly Let the Fresh Air In
The Passion –
Diane comments that she loves the work of interior design and plans on doing it “forever … as long as I can!”. She prefers residential projects over commercial ones because “… They’re shorter span projects and they’re a lot more creative”, as well as being a more intimate sort of architecture that allows her to have a freer rein with her imagination – an imagination that includes the pre-Modern Italian, French, Jeffersonian, and Georgian traditions and styles that Diane loves and which are not currently in favor for most Commercial buildings.
And in addition to being an accomplished Designer, Diane is also a skilled draftsperson, with over 40 years of experience in both designing and drafting. Her draftspersonship comes in handy with Clients since Diane likes to communicate her visions via her custom hand-crafted drawings. In fact, she notes that most of her clients “don’t know what they want until they see it”, an envisioning that she is more than happy to help guide them with personally. As Diane relates, “The more pictures you draw the better (your clients) feel about what you’re doing”.
