Model Home Tour: California Cool

I LOVE going to model homes…maybe just as much as I love going to Homegoods. So when I stumbled across the Ashton Woods model in Highland Ridge here in Frisco, I just had to blog about it.

What struck me in this particular model was the bold mix of navy blues and graphic patterns throughout. I love blue and its nice to see it used in darker shades since the light blues are so expected in design these days.




I’m really into the almost denim like color of the sofas. With kids in the house, its so hard to keep the lighter colors clean and pristine.


Loving the white cabinets with the black island. Also dying for a wine bottle rack like this one for my island!



The porcelain subway tile backsplash is a such a classic look, and so much more cost effective.



I love the idea of beadboard on a recessed ceiling. The chandelier is fantastic as well.



The dining room is painted in a bold navy blue with bright white wainscotting. It’s quite stunning.


The coffer ceiling with the dark wood beams really draws the eye up and showcases the dramatic ceiling height in the great room. I also love the idea of putting doors on the open spaces surrounding the game room. It keeps all of the noise contained upstairs.


They used what seems to be siding that you generally see on the exterior of a home for the walls in the gameroom. It gives the room a real cottage feel and a break from boring sheetrock!


Media rooms are generally dark holes but I love how the designer kept this one light and bright with lots of glossy white built-ins.




My head is swarming with some fantastic ideas after visiting this home! Can’t wait to use some in my soon-to-be new home!
