Sasha’s Inspiring European Trip

Sasha has recently returned from an inspirational trip to Italy and France looking at hundreds of fabulous chateaus, manor houses, period homes and hotels – and she is bursting with fresh ideas!

Sasha deBretton shares her European trip

One of Sasha’s passions has always been to visit Europe and immerse herself in the ingenuity and skills of the artisans, craftspeople and artists who designed and created these European wonders. Sasha spend her time in Europe immersed in the splendour of French and Italian architecture and design, soaking up the feeling of stylish furnishings and design excellence that pervaded each residence she visited.

On her return to Oz Sasha stated that, “it is one thing to read and see pictures of these places, but quite another to go there and witness and feel the creative intensity”.

Sasha found the detailed panelling, glamorous rooms, high ceilings and decorative finishing’s simply stunning! The visual impression left by the use of rustic stones, renderings, shutters, intricate windows, doors, landscapes and everything that epitomises French architecture has enthused Sasha to create even more masterpieces for her clients!

What particularly struck Sasha was that these fabulous buildings were built well and built to last. And their attention to detail was perfect. The designers and artisans had clearly paid attention to every little detail, even in a time when people had much less money than today.

Sasha believes that one mistake many people make today is in not paying enough attention to the finishing details that add so much to a well-designed home. Sasha believes with all her heart that it is these finishing touches that adds the final WOW factor to a design and well and truly transforms drab into fab!

Sasha deBretton has recently returned from Italy and FranceThe finesse of finely detailed finishes combines to create a luxurious, elegant and lived in feel to a home. Finishing touches, such as decorative cornices, skirting boards, feature walls, stunning light fittings, custom built cabinetry and herringbone or parquet floors provide a stylish charm that is so lacking in many of today’s designs.

Sasha has always loved France and intends to buy a chateau there one day soon and maybe, just maybe, Sasha and her Million Dollar Makeover team can renovate their clients homes and send them to France to stay in her chateau whilst she creates their dream castle right here!  That is what Million Dollar Makeovers is all about – creating, building and delivering on her client’s dreams….

    • Sasha deBretton infuses her heart and soul into her fabulous home renovations in Perth – to give her client’s their dream home and dream lifestyle that they have always wanted. Over the years Sasha has received many, many thank you letters and testimonials from her ecstatic clients – and in this blog Sasha shares a recent testimonial from a very happy client in Perth.

      Client History

      Sasha’s client returned to Perth after 17 years and moved into a townhouse in West Leederville. It had been rented out for the last 15 years and was looking very shabby and unloved. Sasha’s client knew that she wanted to stay in the area and was keen to do a total renovation – but after hearing horror stories of friends’ renovations that had gone seriously over budget and dragged on for almost a year - she wasn’t looking forward to what lay ahead. Knowing her busy lifestyle and lack of interest in DIY and after watching Sasha’s Million Dollar Makeover stories on the ‘Home in WA program’, her sister-in-law suggested that she contact Sasha about her home renovation in Perth.

      Too easy!

      They met on Thursday 8 August and just over 2 months later after a complete guttering of her townhouse - her delighted client moved back into her completely renovated dream home.

      Sasha bowled me over at our first meeting and came up with some fabulous design ideas to complement the few of my own.  I never imagined that work would even start before Christmas but when Sasha heard that I was leaving for a 3 week trip to Europe in early September her immediate response was that she could start and have most of the work completed while I was away, thus minimising the inconvenience of having to vacate my home for 4 weeks”.


      The MDM rapid renovation, home renovation express ride!

      Within a week Sasha’s client had visited the Million Dollar Makeover showroom in Perth for a consultation with Rachel the interior design consultant and had a house full of assorted tradesmen who were providing quotes on all the work! Disaster! It all came to a (temporary) grinding halt when her client couldn’t face the prospect of storing all her furniture and possessions after having moved and unpacked less than 2 months previously. But Sasha came to the rescue so that when her client boarded a plane she was relaxed and confident knowing that her house was being packed by professionals.  

      “Without exception everyone on the Million Dollar Makeover team has been professional, friendly and accommodating and has done everything possible to take the stress out of renovating. I’d particularly like to thank Sasha for seeing the potential in my home and Rachel for her design guidance, impeccable taste and for gently encouraging me out of my comfort zone at times. Finally, I would like to thank my wonderful and always upbeat Project Manager Julie for whom nothing was too much trouble or any request too trivial. Your attention to detail and insistence on quality and excellence has meant that we have been on the same page throughout the renovation”.


      “Sasha your business concept is amazing and fills a real gap in the market.  I can’t believe how easy and stress free the process has been and what a beautiful home you have created for me - on time and on budget. You’ve delivered what it says on your sign and my home has gone from “drabulous to fabulous” in just over 4 weeks.  At the same time my family and friends have gone from being sceptical to totally amazed at the transformation and the quality of the workmanship”.

        This testimonial from a delighted client brought a tear to Sasha’s eye - as it her clients that inspire Sasha to work her amazing miracles and change the lives of so many deserving people. Sasha started her Million Dollar Makeover home renovation business in Perth because she knew that she could make a difference to the renovation industry and make home renovations easy and hassle free. Sasha is very proud of her team who help her show that what everyone thinks is IMPOSSIBLE is POSSIBLE with a touch of Million Dollar Makeover
