Finding the Balance Between Trendy and Timeless in Home Design

August 21, 2019 11:31 pm Published by Comments Off on Finding the Balance Between Trendy and Timeless in Home Design

The homes at Willow Branch community are designed to maintain a timeless beauty while still incorporating new building materials and advancements. If you’re looking at Chelsea AL homes, then take advantage of the fact that Phase III in Willow Branch is now open and selling. This community has been a major hit with homebuyers and now is your chance to pick out your ideal homesite and home design. As you go through the building process, you will be able to work with the interior design team to put your own personal style on your home, balancing the best of trendy and timeless for a truly unique home.

Ultimately, the blending of timeless and trendy is up to your personal tastes. After all, it’s your home and you need somewhere that makes you feel comfortable. Still, there are ways to incorporate the latest trends in a way that is easy to update each year, without requiring a major overhaul.

Aim to keep major pieces of furniture as timeless as possible, both in color and style. Neutrals for expensive pieces give you more leeway to play with smaller pieces of furniture that are less costly. Embrace the mirrored side tables or ornate metal coffee tables and let the neutral sofa stand as an elegant backdrop.

Of course, even if you choose a more timeless sofa and chairs, there are often covers available in a variety of colors, prints, and patterns that let you play around with trendy styles without being stuck with a piece that will quickly look dated. Depending on the rest of your living room color scheme, a rich burgundy sofa cover could really make a statement this season, but can easily be switched out come spring.

Minimalism will always have its place, but you may want to add in some curves to soften straight lines and hard angles. Plus, with a minimalistic setting, a colorful, quirkier piece that also represents your personality really has room to stand out.

For example, use shades of white, beige and grey for timeless colors, but offset them with bold works of art or accent colors in accessories that can be changed as trends change.

Wood floors are always appreciated, but you can add rugs for contemporary updates. In the same way, natural materials such as wood, stone, and brick have a timeless quality, but can be incorporated into less expected ways, such as a rough cut bricks surrounding a fireplace, or stone tabletops and countertops.

The Chelsea AL homes from Scotch Homes are available in a variety of floor plans that combine elements of traditional architecture with more modern updates, helping you find a home that speaks to your personal vision. Now with Phase III of Willow Branch available, be sure to visit the website to see the site map and pick out your preferred homesite. This in-demand community is sure to sell quickly so reserve your homesite early before your favorite lot sells. You could soon be in your own perfectly trendy and timeless home.

    Client Testimonials

    We had a wonderful experience having our home built by Wayne Scotch and the Scotch Homes Team. They were very patient in helping us get ready to start the project and even helped us find the perfect location. He was always available to help us through each step and to explain everything. Wayne's wife, Stefani, works hard behind the scenes to make sure that orders are placed and deadlines are met. She is also available to answer questions and to make recommendations! We felt that our house was always of the utmost importance to Wayne and his team! Now that the house is finished, we are so glad that we had Scotch Homes do the building. The quality and workmanship in our home is very obvious. Wayne and the entire Scotch Homes team are extremely honest, caring people and their Christian concern is a huge part of their business. There could not be a better company or a better builder anywhere than Scotch Homes. We recommend them highly and we are very grateful that we found them!Jim and Maria Brandt
    After living in the same home for 28+ years, we decided to build a home. We feel so fortunate to have contracted with Scotch Homes and Land Development for the project. Scotch Homes listened to what we wanted in our new home, provided house plans that met our needs and made wonderful suggestions throughout the building process. We were amazed at the progress each day when we visited the construction site. Scotch Homes constructed a quality built home that we love, in a very convenient location on a great lot! Their team provided us with contacts for selections of our lighting, flooring, etc, emailed me when selections were due, and provided a valued opinion about selections when I asked for her help. Not only are we thankful that Scotch Homes built our home, we also are blessed to now call them our friends.

    From the moment we met with Scotch Homes, they listened to all the different things we wanted to include into our new home. They discussed every step. The budgets we had for brick, lighting , flooring and even the landscaping were generous enough that I could stay in budget and not go over.

    Besides being a great builder Scotch Homes is a great company that takes pride in their work. I recommend Scotch Homes to everyone I meet. If you have thought about building a home with Scotch Homes ,I promise, you will have a wonderful time!
