Ooo La La – Model Home at Normandy Heights Gets a Fresh New Look
Our Normandy Heights model home in Winter Haven, which was built in 2006, has been updated with a fresh, new look.
The home showcases Highland Homes’ popular Remington II floor plan, which features 1,841 square feet with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a two-car garage.
Stacey Antonakos-Perez, manager of the Highland Homes Personal Selection Studio, worked to bring new life to the home and put her decorating skills to the test while working within a small budget. Successfully coming in well under her budget of $6,000 (she only spent $4,800); Stacey came up with a plan of action to bring a new feel to the entire home.
After selling old furniture to a local consignment shop to earn a little extra money for the project, it was time to banish the white walls and repaint them with stimulating color. Some walls were chosen as accent walls while other details, such as chair rails and shadow boxes, were added throughout the home.
In some rooms, such as the dining room and master suite, the furniture was in pristine condition so it was left in place. Little details, such as replacing towels and pillows with new ones, or simply changing accessories throughout the rooms, created a whole new look for the rooms.
The overall look of the model home became more inviting with the help of a lighter and brighter color palate. Adding light colored fabrics and furnishings throughout the entire home helped to create a more open feel and visually enlarged the space.
Stacey designed the home for the average, all-American family—mom, dad, daughter and son. Envisioning a family living in the home made it easier to imagine what their home might look like and gave some authenticity to each of the rooms. In order to transform the rooms and stay within her budget, Stacey shopped at various discount stores such as Ross, Target, TJ Maxx, Hobby Lobby and HomeGoods. Any new furniture that was purchased came from Ashley Furniture.
