If this house looks vaguely familiar, it’s because my very first post was on this exact same floor plan. This company took this floor plan and bought a house in one of Tampa’s most expensive neighborhoods, razed it, and built this big ass house. Let me say this though, this one is about a zillion times better. They put a shit load of upgrades, NO GRANITE!!!!!!, marble, fantastic lighting, beautiful tile floors set in a herringbone pattern, and this time I took a picture of the outdoor seating areas. The staircase is open. The other is not and it really makes a huge difference because there is a very dark dead zone right in that foyer. I really don’t like some of the side tables used and I really don’t like the kitchen stools. All of the walls were a soothing gray and there were many blue accent walls. I really should say ceiling. You can see it in the first still picture. The color palette is a turquoise, green, and blue situation, which, by the end of the day, felt a little blah. I never thought I’d say that because I really love that combo, but I found myself really wanting more of a statement. Perhaps a coral. I love the way the sliding glass doors are framed and of course, the patio off the kitchen. The walls were all rounded.
The kitchen counters were a solid white quartz with a marble backsplash and the island was black cabinetry with a marble counter. I hated the white quartz, but the overall effect was good. All of the counters in the bathrooms are white quartz. This house has my favorite thing in a model home: fake food! Lots of it. I don’t know why that makes me so happy. The bathrooms and bedrooms were a nice shade of blue. This house has two master suites and the second one was blue stripes. I normally don’t care for the multi-colored rooms, but his one was fine. Overall, an A-. Points taken off for the modern stools that don’t feel like they belong and the accent tables. I liked some of the accent tables, but there were enough in a white lacquer to make my eyes google out. So, no to lacquer.
