Don’t build a house… BUILD A HOME!

When I’m going house hunting the first thing I look for is the neighborhood. I have a family and I want to provide for my children a safe community that they can call home. Last week I shared HERE what I love about Daybreak.

Keeping that in mind I am going to focus today on the house itself and tips of how to make a house a home.

Are you ready to see it?

My dream home is situated at Lake Village in the Daybreak Utah Community.

It was love at first sight!

Loved the gorgeous egg-blue color, the red doors, the cottage timeless design, and the adorable white picket fence.

When I saw it from the outside I felt like Holme Homes had built this beauty for me!

Isn’t it pretty?

Good BONES

An empty house should speak to you.

I always try my best to look beyond the decor of a home.

Pay attention to what I call the bones of a house…Things like flooring, backsplash, windows, faucets, hardware, and wall treatments… All the details that make a house a home!

Let me show you what I am talking about…

Check out this laundry sink!

LIGHTING

When you are looking for a home make sure to choose a house  that has plenty of natural light.

No lamp can substitute the natural light that comes from windows.

Natural light is not just gorgeous but helps us feel happy, energetic and optimistic. It is inviting and lifts us up!  

Wait to see what is behind these side-yard doors and windows!

The thing that I love the most about Daybreak and Holmes Homes is how bright the community and houses are.

For the love of windows!

The natural light in this house is AH-MAZING!

We all know that hallways are nothing but a useless dark tunnel that takes us to rooms.

Not in my dream house baby!

This is what you’ll find behind those side-yard doors that I showed you earlier…

I introduce to you the mother of all hallways!!!

Shut UP! Right?

Did you see those windows?

Did you see the light that comes from those double doors?

Did you see the built-in hallway bookcase?

OK, if you could excuse me for a minute…

I am having a moment!

 

TEXTURE

One of the keys of great design is mixing patterns and materials to create texture.

This is not just a way to decorate but to bring your personality into your house.

I loved how the Holmes Homes team mixed and matched patterns and materials in this master bedroom.

You can also see how the lines of the plank wall, against the stone fireplace, the checker chair, the double rugs and the baskets all add personality and dimension to a room packed with neutral colors. I love it all!
