We are very excited to share this interior design preview of the 2014 St. Jude Dream Home. Located in scenic Colorado Springs, the beautiful new home was built by Classic Homes, and was fully furnished and styled with Furniture Row products by our team of expert designers. The weekend of April 4 was the open house, and visitors previewed the wonderful home and it’s design. Be sure to check out photos below, and words from our designer Barbara Chandler about the home.
The versatile Classic Homes design lends itself wonderfully to many styles of interior decorating. The overall inspiration of the home was “the beautiful great outdoors of Colorado”, and was brought in with”green, chocolate brown, with splashes of orange and white”, Chandler says. These rich neutral earth tones, and bursts of color give this Colorado home a warm, livable feeling–and we love it!
The home design is anchored by complementary textures, and cohesive design pieces. While each room has a unique style, the overall inspiration of the home is reflected in each space. Accents of spring green, rich beiges, and occasional pops of orange and other warm hues are throughout, and tastefully bring surprising style to every room.
If you love this home as much as we do, and want to get started on your own Dream Home, Barb has a few recommendations on where to begin your design: “Gather photos of styles and colors of rooms you like…Make a Ta-Da list of what you really want in the rooms you are designing. Measure TWICE, sketch it out”. No matter your budget, planning well and sticking to what you know you want & love in your home can make your dream design a reality, too.
From the handsome hardwood floors to the rich finishes the furnishings, this home is a beautiful reflection of Colorado, and of interior design. Barb said it well and we agree, that the best part of being involved in the home is helping such an important cause: “It’s a wonderful feeling knowing our efforts are helping the children at St. Jude.” To support St. Jude–and for your chance to win this beautiful home, be sure to get your ticket for the 2014 drawing.
