I grew up going through model homes to get decorating ideas. The last one I went in this summer featured every single room in a version of red and brown, which got old kinda quick! As a decorator I seem to have more opinions than I used to and now I'd like to know yours!
Today I went to two Ryland Homes townhouse models priced in the $300's. Model # 1 had the colors navy, teal, gray and white. (Please excuse the iphone pictures!)
First floor entry and family room:
2nd floor Kitchen/Living room/Dining Room combination:
Third floor Master Bedroom, bath and boy's room:
The trends I'm spotting are:
- dark floors, layered with area rugs and bold flat weaves
- dark painted ceilings
- 2 tone kitchens; white island, black cabinets with quartzite counters
- contemporary art
- striped wall treatments,rugs,drapes and bedding.
- wood plank wall feature
- themed bedrooms for kids
- chrome and silver accents
Tell me what pros and cons you see in this model? Tomorrow I'll feature a 2nd townhouse.
