i love to visit model homes. Near my sister in law’s house they have 7 model homes open for touring. It was a muddy, stormy Sunday afternoon so she and I headed out to walk through the homes. This builder’s homes are well built and are part of a 55+ neighborhood. Today you get to see the first two.
I have never seen this designer/ builder’s work, and I really enjoyed getting to see their ideas. They had the most creative ceilings I have ever seen. My favorite home happened to be the first home we visited.
The very first room was… Navy and coral with a rustic, modern vibe. I can honestly say it was the only room I could see myself in, but I did take away some ideas.
We didn’t plan on going so excuse the iPhone photos.
I loved this house.
The front bedroom was so cool. I really liked the china cabinet and the matching crib springs. The stripes wet navy, burlap, and a cream color. The art was stenciled canvas.
Loved the coral tailored cloth on the night stands.
Here is the rest of the house:
The master was a little too fussy for me. The side tables were way too full and the picture above the bed was too much. The mosaic tile panels are throughout all the homes.
I had to ask myself if that design in the shower would get old?
I loved the zinc topped hammerd table.
I liked the wood squares on the laundry wall.
I loved the wood flooring!
This house was totally not my style but still fun to look at and even in this house there were elements I really liked. I called this the mirror house.
Imagine dusting all those mirror frames.
A wall of mirrors in a 55+ guest bedroom?
I really liked this piece.
Loved the formal dining table.
I like the light fixture but two breakfast tables?
The backsplash was fun.
Oh my, the master was sensory overload. Tile and beam ceiling, tile insets on the wall, mirror edged headboard…
I did like the slate look ceramic tile.

I think overall the architectural elements and styling in both houses is a bit too over-the-top for me…but like you I enjoy going through model homes and new houses. 🙂 – Karen
I do enjoy seeing the homes but the were really over the top.
I love these! In each picture there are items that I totally love. Almost all of it was too overdone for me, but take out a few elements here and it’s a win. Such fun to go to these! I miss going with my best friend back home.
It is fun and like you, I found things in every room I liked.
