The Geoffrey Home

The Geoffrey Home, [ pronounced Jo-free ] has been quite the journey. I had so much fun designing this home! Its named after my dear friend Geoffrey. I always had her style in the back of my mind. I wanted to think outside the box, and being intentional about offering something that is different than what is currently on the market, but keeping it my signature style. The design style is classic, yet fun. It has a modern coastal style with clean lines, that is seen throughout the whole home.

I used a color pallet of granite blue, grey, white, and wood tones to bring the coastal style together. The granite gray blue cabinets are used in the island, media cabinets, bathroom vanities and lower level bar area. Seeing the blue/gray color throughout the home brings it all together. You will also see the wood tones throughout the home in cabinets, shelving and light fixtures. White shows up in the quartz, backsplash, shiplap, beams, and the millwork. It is important to keep seeing similar design features in several areas of the home to pull it all together.

I also used a blend of metals. This can get tricky, but by choosing a dominate metal, you can mix in 2-3 metals as accents, depending on the size of the room. In this house, black was the dominate finish. and gold was used as an accent in several places. Knowing this was a home designed for the masses, I used gold cabinet hardware in places that could easily be swapped out with black.

The fireplace wall in the main living area is finished with white painted shiplap, we repeated this in the lower level fireplace wall, along with the custom built range hood in the kitchen! Many people see shiplap as farmhouse style, but it is also seen in numerous coastal interior designs. I love how it can be versatile.

We recently had this home staged by Design That Sells. I love how they captured our design style by just viewing photos of the home! I would buy everything they put in this home!

This home was being built smack dab in the middle of the pandemic. No one knew what was coming. We seen a lot of product delays and price increases. It really taught us to accept, adapt, and move to plan B when needed. And when plan B doesn’t work, there is always a plan C. We even realized that plan C, was just always meant to be.

We have always been one to adapt well, you have to when you are in this business. We find it as being one of our best assets. Also, part of being a designer is to make plan C the best that it can be! We are a team that looks at the glass half full. We know building isn’t a perfect process, but in the end, you get a pretty awesome result.

Walking in the door and knowing someone is going to call this their home, is why I keep showing up, learning, adapting, and making the best out outcome of what is meant to be.

Rolling Hills Progress

Our Rolling Hills house has made a lot of exciting progress the last couple weeks! We have a framed and sheeted house with windows, doors, and all the rough in for plumbing, HVAC and electrical is happening. Soon the fun interior choices begin!

Interior finish board

I’m staying very close to my original design board of this house. I’m very attached to it! I can’t wait to see it come to life.

I’ve put a lot of thought into the exterior of this house. I love and appreciate a classic look of a home. So I’ve kept that in mind while choosing the exterior materials and colors.

If this house speaks to you, please contact us! We’d love to show you around. We’ve had so many compliments regarding the floor plan and layout of this house. It’s perfect for a small family or a growing family!

My goal of this whole Design is to bring a family home. ❤️

Rolling Hills

Our next custom spec is currently under construction! I am so excited about the design concept of this house. It will have a coastal farmhouse feel that mixes elements of old and new, using metal, wood, and bright white paint colors to bring this home a clean traditional look.

This home is located on a corner lot in the Country Hills Subdivision. It has established trees with plenty of shade and sunshine. I have to admit, I am a bit envious of this lot. We have been eyeing it for a couple years actually and when it returned back on the market we jumped on it.

This time we are putting the house on the market before it is finished. This will give potential home buyers a chance to add their own personal touches.

I am excited to share the design process of this house with you! Stay tuned to be part of the building process.
