Designer Tips from Waters of Hidden Springs Model Home

Categories: Design, Model Home, Special Features | Posted: February 7, 2019

We took a moment to chat with Regency Homebuilder’s in-house Designers, Cindy Carlson and Kristin Midgett, on their most recent project, the Designer Model Home of Waters of Hidden Springs in Oakland, TN. One can see that a great deal of care and consideration was used in planning and executing the fabulous and inspiring designs in each and every area of the house. One thing that was very important to the designers was accessibility, where “potential customers could walk in and feel as if they could move in tomorrow and feel right at home!”. They did this through choosing a mix of store-bought items, DIY pieces, and a combination of both, with repurposed and painted shelves in the “Game Room”.

 

 

Here’s a few design tips and insights from the pros!

What was the overall design theme of this home?

“We jokingly called our theme for this home casual awesome. We wanted to home to be casual and comfortable, yet beautiful and inviting. We wanted potential customers to walk in and feel as if they could move in tomorrow and feel right at home. We considered the neighborhood and families that might want to live there, and plan the rooms accordingly. We also planned with a budget in mind, choosing pieces that were affordable and classic. We didn’t do anything too trendy or an extreme style (farmhouse, modern, traditional, etc…)”

Where did you go for inspiration?

“We use all kinds of inspiration! We use Pinterest, Houzz, Instagram, magazines, furniture catalogs and retailers. Once we find something that really catches our eye, we build the room around that. For example, we found a picture of a tent reading nook hanging from the ceiling in a picture on Instagram. We decided to do our own take on that and build a little girl’s room around this feature. We also found a fabric we loved at Premier Fabric, so we had euros made and found complementary bedding.”

What was your favorite feature or room in the home?

“Our favorite feature is the master barn doors, along with the master bath window treatment. We found pictures online and had the trim carpenter build the barn doors. We loved how the design of the doors was different from other standard designs we had used in the past.  The master bath window treatment was based off a photo from Pinterest, and we really were thrilled by how the two features flowed together and created a “wow” moment in the Master Retreat!”

What advice would you give to anyone looking to do a design overhaul in their home? Where should they start?

“We would advise going online or in magazines/catalogs and finding pictures that they love. When you have an idea of what you are wanting to do, and what you are looking for…shopping for all of the parts isn’t so overwhelming. We also keeps lots of pictures in our phones, organized by albums to keep each room/house straight, and a bag of fabric/bedding/pillows samples in our cars to use when shopping and making selections.”

What our your favorite local shops for furniture, antiques, etc?

“Warehouse 67, Sheffield’s Antique Mall, Something Special, Johnson’s Fabrics, Premier Fabrics, Homegoods, Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn, Pier One…and many more!”

Can you share any DIY tricks that were used in this home design?

“Master bath window treatments: Our husbands had access to an old barn, and they literally went and cut the piece of wood off the barn and then cut it to our measurements. They were going to stain it, but it looked great with the barn doors as is! We ordered inexpensive tie-top panels from Wayfair and measured where we needed the hooks (which we got a Lowe’s.) Our builder installed the hooks and hung the board over the window. We tied the knots ,and it turned out beautifully!”

“For the shelves in the Game Room, we used shelves from an older model, but they weren’t the right color metal. So we removed the wood and spray painted them black to give the look of iron.”

5 Reasons We Love Quartz

Categories: Design, Model Home, Special Features, Uncategorized | Posted: January 21, 2019

Quartz is an engineered stone that provides many benefits in both form and function. Here’s a few of the reasons why we love using this material in our kitchens and bathrooms!

 

  1. The wide array of colors and textures

 As quartz counters are engineered, many colors can be brought in through pigmentation. Textures and dimension can be created through adding in glass and stone, providing the natural looks of marble or granite, without the unpredictability.

 

  1. Quartz is Nonporous

Natural stones are all porous to a degree; however, since quartz is a manufactured material it will not let in liquids or stains. This will keep cleaning a breeze, and you will feel a real peace of mind knowing that harmful bacteria or viruses or harbored in your countertops.

 

  1. Durability

 Quartz is incredibly strong, resisting chips and cracks, as well as corrosion from cleaning materials and oils.

 

  1. Low maintenance

Another benefit of quartz is that you do not need to seal your countertops! However, it will benefit from using stone-safe cleaners to look its best.

 

  1. It can make your home look like this….

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.
