Model Home: Part 1

The past two weeks have been a whirlwind for me. Two and a half weeks ago, I was asked to design a model home that they needed done by Memorial Day weekend for a fun run they were hosting there. The home is located in the beautiful Hawks Landing subdivision here in Southeast Idaho. The builder is Phelps Homes and they do amazing work. It is a 6 bedroom 3 1/2 bathroom home. I am going to post the main level first and then I will get the the upstairs and the basement another day. I forgot to take a picture of the exterior, so I will have to post that another day, but here is the beautiful entry as you walk in the front door.

I was not involved in the finish or paint selection process. I don't know the names of the paint colors, and actually neither does the builder. He said they were sort of a mix they made out of some left over paint they had.
They wanted a bench for people to use to take their shoes off before walking through the home. I found that at TJ Maxx and the rug is from Target. The clock is from Walmart. We were working on a pretty tight budget, so I had to do a lot of shopping around to find the best items for the best price. I am really pleased with how it turned out though.

The office is on the left of the entry.

This will actually be their sales person's office. The desk is from Office Max. I did not purchase the chairs. They were already owned by the developer, so I don't know where they came from. The art is from Tuesday Morning.

The dining area.

I love this table and chair set. Sorry, it is kind of hard to see. When I took these pictures it was right in the middle of the day, so the lighting was horrible. But it is from Sam's Club and here is the link. We purchased our table and chair set from Sam's too. Who would have thought they would have such great furniture.

The buffet table is from Downeast Home. The fabulous mirror is from TJ Maxx. The Lamps are from Lowes and the shades I found at Hancock Fabric.

Living Area

The loveseat is from Furniture Row. The clock is from Lowes ( great price too, by the way: $49.99). The lamp is from Target.  The big empty spot in the built-in is where a T.V. will go, in case you were wondering.

Those fabulous chairs are from Pier 1. I absolutely love them! They make the room. The art above the fireplace is also a favorite of mine. It is from Fred Meyer.

Isn't this a great kitchen?!! I love the size.

I didn't have to do much here. I made the simple window valance. The decorations above the hood are from Pier 1. That big empty spot next to the wall ovens is where the refridgerator will go.

Stay tuned for the rest of the house later...

Amber it turned out beautiful! It's kind of scary though when the builders decide to "make" their own paint color:) I think the Pier 1 chairs are my favorite.
