“If you love something, it will work. That’s really the only rule.” – Bunny Williams Interior Designer
As part our process at BlackRock Construction we try and get professional photographs of every finished residential project after the homeowner has moved in and spend some time with the home. There is so much value in waiting a few weeks, sometimes months after a closing. The homeowner has had the time to put a personal touch to the home, express their style and most importantly create the vision they had throughout the building process.
Personal style is everything for a home! New home owners pour over design catalogs and follow home trends closely but truly at the end of the day a home is a collection of ideas, trends and accents that suit the occupant’s personal style. Thank you Houzz, Pinterest and Instagram for the easy access to design inspiration. Pulling ideas from a variety of sources to arrive at your personal style is now so accessible and can be a really fun journey.
Equally important is the building process. The homeowner’s personal style and preferences are expressed through the building process from patio to rooftop. We see a huge variety of preferences in the details of each home build and the options are vast. Fireplaces are a favorite of ours, some may say a signature ‘must have’ in a BlackRock home. Fireplaces vary from the very sleek and modern to the very traditional. This central meeting spot and feature enjoyed by all is a great reflection of personal style.
“Success is the sum of details” – Harvey S. Firestone. In home design this holds very true. For BlackRock detailing starts from the moment the foundation is poured and follows us through the building process until the last shingle is hammered. Details such as built in bench seating in a well-lit breakfast nook, coffered ceilings in a master bedroom or a handsome real wood front door set the stage for homeowner to create their space.
Sometimes the simplest details make the most impact. A bouquet of flowers, a candelabra or a well-placed stack of books can become central design details that create your personal style. Tying a home together with simple details creates an environment that speaks of its designers and tells a visual story of the home owner.
Whatever your personal style follow your inspiration!
The style of this room leans more toward the traditional with a large elegant marble and wood fireplace as a central piece in the room design. Natural design elements are prominent, creating a very calming space with the use of sky blue and white hues, natural wood, glass and a simple flower bouquet.
