Touring Model Homes

I like to consider myself an expert when it comes to home architecture - after all that's how I've been making my living for almost a decade. Model homes are a fascinating and fun place to tour when you are looking for design and redecorating ideas.

Each home will always have a distinct color scheme and theme. For example, the home might have a Country French theme designed with reds, golds and greens. The furniture, artwork and accessories (if it's well done) will always follow this general color scheme and theme.

If you think you want a contemporary theme - go sit in a contemporary model for awhile. If it feels good to you then you're pretty safe to move right along in that direction. But what if you don't like it? And you are still convinced that this is the theme that you are going to love. It's most likely the color scheme throwing you off.

Try try again; go sit in another contemporary model. Color has a powerful psychological effect on people and if you don't like the color you won't feel comfortable in that home.

If you've gone to three distinctly different model homes in the style that you feel you want to redecorate in and still don't get a comfortable feeling you may just need to modify the style a bit. Model homes are rather strict in their approach to their themes.

If the model was designed with a country theme you may see chickens and plaids, but that doesn't mean that you have to have chickens in your house! Take what you like and leave the rest behind.

This is especially notable with contemporary design. The contemporary look can be quite beautiful in a picture but it can often feel cold and stark in reality. That doesn't mean that you can't take elements of that style and soften it up utilizing color and textures that you find more comfortable.

You can have a contemporary themed home without sitting on a straight board sofa with a stainless steel coffee table in front of it! Again, take the elements you like and work with them - leave the rest behind.

Take a look at this for example.. if you wondering how the  $24.5 Million house looks like then watch this video
