Our Style Inspiration
From Classic to Contemporary
Modern homes were popularized through the mid 20th Century often called “mid-century modern”; this style is still going strong nearly 60 years later. It incorporates open floor plans, asymmetric construction, and huge panels of windows or glass walls. Modern design attempts to create a simple yet highly functional home. Done well, Modern homes integrate with the outdoors, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces. Material usage often includes natural color wood and textiles, slate and brick, steel cables and glass curtain walls. This style is perfect for anyone with a classic American style who love nature and simple yet functional design.
A quaint style which has grown in popularity over the last 5 years. This style harkens back to a simpler time, when houses came in one color – white-wash white. Although there are several modern variations of this style, the main themes include board and baton siding, front facing gable roofs, wrap-around porches, and wrought iron accenting. Interior styling includes heart pine flooring, vaulted ceilings with exposed truss beams, and large stone fireplaces. The Farmhouse/Cottage style is best suited for suburban and country settings, for homeowners who appreciate a classic style that is both modest, yet classy.
Transitional architecture and design represent the meeting point of the traditional and contemporary. Transitional homes will integrate the Contemporary aesthetic with classic styles like French Country, English Tudor, Mission style and Colonial. The homes will be built with conventional materials and techniques, but they will include stylistic embellishments which are classically inspired. This style is a perfect fit for any neighborhood and is best for homeowners who enjoy the classical aesthetic with modern home construction.
The Pacific Northwest style is a perfect fit for the rolling hills, streams, and woodlands of the Southeast. This style is the quintessential “Mountain Home”. It blends design elements of both Contemporary and Modern homes with an emphasis on the home’s natural surroundings. Pacific Northwest homes can look very modern with sweeping roof lines and large glass curtain walls, but they can also resemble the shape of a farmhouse or lodge. The difference is in the details, from an abundance of stained wood surfaces, to exposed post & beam construction. This style is best suited for large, tree-filled lots with nearby water or mountains. The Pacific Northwest style promotes the integration with nature and offers unmatched design potential. It is a perfect fit for the sophisticated homeowner, who wishes to create a home that coexists with its natural surroundings.
