I went to a community that has a couple of builders I’m not crazy about. I don’t like the community or the two builders, but I have someone looking in this specific price point, so I thought I’d hop in and get some info. When I do stuff like this, I really never look at the model because they usually suck. So my brain took a while to absorb the disparity between the builder and the designers they hired.
This house was done in a bohemian, rustic theme and I loved it. Only one fuck up, but still a solid A. And the fuck up was really the builder’s, so no points taken off for it. To what do I refer? This monstrosity:
I really didn’t think anyone actually used these outside of a potting shed in Vermont, but here it is in the model home. It’s ugly as shit no matter where it is, but it would be more appropriate at the farm.
I can’t even tell you how much I love those brick columns. I had to adjust myself. As you can see, it’s earthy and livable. This is a house that isn’t sterile like most of the models I see. It felt warm and comfortable. A shitload of wood and brick, two of my favorite three design elements. It looks more like someone does live there, but they straightened up for guests.
Holy crap-look at the sconces. We’ll be getting under the covers with sconces very soon
I LOVE the touch of whimsy in the bathroom. And I love that they chose two different colors of fish. Tip of the hat to you, designers.
Oh god, the lamp
What did we learn today? We learned not to judge a house by it’s neighborhood or it’s elevation. This one had nothing to offer in either of those categories, but the inside made me ridiculously happy.
