hdr-st-jude-2017

The 2017 Colorado Springs St. Jude Dream Home and its furnished interior design, compliments of Furniture Row and Denver Mattress, are finally complete! Located just northeast of downtown Colorado Springs in nearby Falcon, Colorado, this dream home is nestled in the Banning Lewis Ranch Homes subdivision off a road with a spectacular mountain backdrop of the Rockies including Pikes Peak. This beautiful St. Jude home built by Covington Homes is 3,500 square feet full of open-spaced bliss with four bedrooms and three baths.

With a spacious modern-inspired kitchen with a gray wash floor and tile backsplash, oversized windows, a large basement area, and an open floor plan concept that includes a large living and dining room area, this year’s St. Jude Dream Home has room for all your furniture, guests, and then some! This year marks the ten-year anniversary of Furniture Row giving back to St. Jude’s, so enter a chance to win this luxurious brand new home and support an important cause.

Barbara Chandler, a Buyer and Designer at Furniture Row, has made sure the St. Jude Dream Home reflects the most popular of design trends to get everyone excited about the opening, but she says the real joy of decorating the home is knowing she gets to help families in need.

“Furniture Row as a company has family values and does a lot of humanitarian projects, which is very near and dear to what Furniture Row is about. Our company feels like its good to give back. The cost of one home that we raffle off doesn’t even cover the cost of one day of hospital operation. The hospital is run solely on donations and homes are being built all over the country, but they still need all the support they can get,” she said.

So make sure you buy your tickets now, and have the chance to win the home or other awesome prices for the 2017 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway. Tours of the house will run from May 6th to June 11th on Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm, and Sundays from noon to 5 pm. The winner will be announced on June 16th, 2017.

Office

When you first enter the St. Jude Dream Home, the hallway opens instantly to reveal a spacious home office with an adjacent bathroom. Large oversized oval windows allow light to fill the room, while convenient storage pieces such as an oversized cabinet with shelves and sliding doors are perfect for all your books, supplies, and more. Charming Magnolia Home furniture and accessories add rustic farmhouse appeal, and the tree decals on the walls and potted plants in vases and wicker baskets provide the perfect workspace oasis so that you can bring nature indoors.

Living Room

Nothing adds cheer and light to a room like a bright pop of sunny yellow, and that’s what Chandler had in mind when designing the living room of the 2017 St. Jude Dream Home. In fact, she liked it so much she added pale yellow to almost all the rooms.

“I chose yellow because spring has sprung, and I feel like pops of yellow are coming out of winter. Yellow is fresh and fun and that’s why I chose it. I wanted to do yellows and grays and gray is such an on-trend color right now, and I could’ve done all grays but that would be a bit boring, so I felt like the yellow would pop it up a bit,” Chandler said.

To tone down the yellow in the accent pillows and ottoman, Chandler also added neutrals like black and gray that also help modernize the farmhouse look. The stylish black wingback accent chair with nailhead trim is a striking contrast to this light, airy, laidback living room setting and gives the space the dramatic, sleek touch its looking for.

Kitchen and Dining Room

The farmhouse fresh look of Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Home collection is everywhere in the kitchen and dining room, but Chandler also says the space is also modern. A vintage metal linen cabinet holds dainty dishware and a cream farmhouse table gives the room provincial refinement, while the kitchen boasts sleek black cabinets, white marble countertops, and retro metal barstools.

Master Bedroom

The master bedroom is Chandler’s favorite room in the house, and it’s no surprise!

“I do like the master bedroom because of the window treatments and the amazing bed that’s in there. It’s just really soft and it looks like that’s where you go to relax and unwind at the end of the day. It’s so elegant,” she said.

Soft touches of sunshine yellow in the fabric help add color to the sophisticated bedroom with a cream tufted and upholstered sleigh bed, making the room feel completely elegant.

Basement Living Room

An oversized basement is always a bonus, and there’s just enough room in the St. Jude Dream Home for another living area! Complete with a rustic wooden entertainment wall and a plush brown Italian leather sofa group, the downstairs den is perfect for move nights and casually unwinding.

Basement Recreation Area

Keep your kids’ clutter at bay and give them a space to let their imaginations soar away from the dining table upstairs with their very own workspace area that’s perfect for arts, crafts, and more with a downstairs recreation area! Furniture with lots of drawers such as the Magnolia Home Bin Chest has room for everything you need to stay organized and the industrial Aldo Metal Chairs provide studious comfort you need for playtime and socializing.

Boy’s Bedroom

Two bedrooms occupy the basement, and this large room to the left is just right for a little boy. Rustic wooden bedroom furniture will gorgeously withstand the test of time as your little one grows older and he will love the storage features perfect for games and toys.

Girl’s Bedroom

Feminine and sweet, this downstairs bedroom to the right is pretty enough for a princess. A frilly white bedspread on a sweet white poster bed with a matching vanity looks charming and sophisticated and your little girl will feel like a grown-up with her very own space. Accents in light pink shades are the perfect girly touch, and even mom will want to sink her toes in the pink plush rug!

Outdoor Patio

Walk into an outdoor haven with a versatile and comfortable outdoor patio group that will allow you relax with family and friends when the weather’s nice. For an exotic touch, add Moroccan or tribal-inspired patterned pillows and a bright rug for some summer color. Colorado Springs gets a lot of sunshine, and the patio out back from the dining area is perfect for sipping cocktails, barbecuing, or just kicking up your feet.
