4 “Do’s” of Design

Categories: Design | Posted: June 29, 2017

 

Every season brings about a change and for this summer season, consider these things when redecorating your home. Here we have 4 “Do’s” of Design!


Window Treatments

If you are someone who appreciates an open space, making your ceiling appear taller is a way to switch up the look of a room in your home. A definite “DO” is to raise the height of your curtains to hang just below the ceiling. When you hang window treatments higher than the window, you draw your eye upward and give the illusion of larger window in turn giving your the space and brightness that you want to achieve.

Light Fixtures

If you’re in the mood for changing your chandeliers this season; a rule of thumb is to have 30’ to 35” of space between the bottom of the chandelier and the table top. This is for a standard 8 foot ceiling. For ceilings higher than 8 feet, consider adding an extra 3” in suspension height for every additional foot.

The Rule of Three: (Pun intended)

When setting out new decor, have you thought about grouping your items in 3s or odd numbers? Again, we are back to the psychology of it all. When we see things arranged in odd numbers, our minds are convinced that it must be more appealing because we our eyes are forced to move around more. Thus, making it more effective in tying in the ultimate visual experience.

Wall Decor

Sometimes the picture hanging process can be a hassle. Well, let’s make it a little bit easier with this tip. Interior design experts suggest that pictures should be hung 57” for the center. This means that the middle of picture should be at 57” from the ground. This is because 57” is considered the average eye level height. Most people tend to hang pictures higher then 57” which makes the room unbalanced with the furniture. What you want is a good relationship between everything in the room through symmetry and design.

Go ahead and get comfortable in this Presley Plan! The Presley Plan is a new floor plan offered in our College Crossing Community. It features 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and 3,137 square feet.

Consider this room your oasis and soak the day away in your drop in soaker tub on a tile platform. Your separate shower unit will also have tile surroundings and a decorative border. Your master bath leads into a grand walk-in closet that’s more than capable of housing your entire wardrobe.

EXTERIORS

Painted brick exteriors are hot right now!  Customers love this option because it gives their home a fresh feel and it is easy to keep clean!  Creams, taupes, and grays are popular color schemes for painted brick.

Shutters are a detail that most people over-look.  The right shutter color can make all the difference in a home! We love the way the muted green shutters add a touch of color to the Somerset Designer model home!

INTERIORS

Trends are pointing to a lot of natural and exposed details in the home.  Natural woods and stones give the home a warm feel.  Wooden barn doors & cedar beams are very popular among customers.  The show, Fixer Upper has become such an inspiration to new homeowners; farmhouse style with a shiplap wall (of course!).

We’ve also been seeing more chandeliers making their way into homes.  Large, statement chandeliers over the formal dining room table and linear, neat pendant lights in the kitchen gives the home a sophisticated-cool feel.

Brass, copper, and gold accents are slowly coming back into style.  These finishes would look amazing against white or gray tones.

You will surely fall in love with the Brentwood Plan.  The Brentwood plan is a new plan offered in our Fleming Ridge community.  With 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, this home will meet all the needs of your family.  You and your family will enjoy the openness of this home.  The sleek fireplace and built-ins serve as a beautiful centerpiece of the living area.  Wooden beams and natural stone gives this space character and a unique feel in Collierville.

Here are some of our favorite parts of the home 🙂

A – Get ready to be pampered!  The master suite is PERFECT! You’ll have an at-home spa with a tub, separate shower, designer cabinets, and a vaulted ceiling. Don’t forget about the massive walk-in closet!

B – Many windows, like ones along the gallery hall, make the home feel bright and open.

C – This sleek kitchen is SO dreamy! A long kitchen island with granite countertops creates an eat-in area with barstool seating. Windows add natural brightness to the space that reflects off the stainless steel appliances.

D – Your guests will feel right at home in this spacious downstairs suite!

E – The open floor plan allows easy access to the morning rom, kitchen, and outdoor living area.  The ceiling with exposed wooden beams creates a beautiful look in this timeless living room design.

F – Thirsty? No need to go all the way to the kitchen for a drink, instead, our refreshment center is centrally located upstairs in the Bonus Room!  This would be the ideal place to entertain your guests.

G – Grab a book & get cozy in this upstairs loft area.  Easy access to bedrooms & bonus room!

We can’t wait for you to see this gorgeous designer model home this Saturday!

We want to give a HUGE thank you to everyone that came out to the grand opening!  We loved being able to show you the “Fixer Upper” inspired home, while also enjoying some Chick-fil-a and MEMpopS.  Even with the rain, it turned out to be a great day!
