“A talented local builder and a talented designer from the largest furniture store in the world, make for a great partnership”!
Furnitureland South recently partnered with Tripp Bunker, Builder and Developer of Sagamore Homes in Clemmons, NC to furnish their flagship model home. When completed, this development will consist of 200 homes stretching across three nearby communities. These quality built homes will appeal to a wide variety of buyers from young families to empty-nesters. Tripp’s vision for the model home was a casual, slightly rustic style that was welcoming and relevant to today’s home buyer.
Cherry Yount had the distinct privilege of leading this Interior Design project on behalf of Furnitureland South. She worked closely with Shannon Rohden, their project manager, to complete all the interior furnishings for the model. Before selecting furniture Shannon and Cherry selected a cohesive color palette and discussed how each room would function for prospective buyers.
For the color palette Cherry chose a warm gray for the entire house, with the exception of the Master Bedroom where she painted the walls a beautiful cream. Cherry’s design vision was to keep the walls light against the darker hand-scraped hardwood floors. To complement the floors she selected deeper toned, distressed wood tables seen here in the dining room, living room and kitchen. To give the space some modern elements polished chrome was used as the predominant metal accent throughout the main floor.
The second floor of the model is all about the kids! At the top of the stairs is a fabulous homework, art and media space. There are two bedrooms- one pretty in pink and the other with a skateboard theme that is all boy. These spaces were designed to be happy and bright with an element of fun!
On opening day one favorite element that everyone seemed to comment on was the hand cut and hand painted stencil in the Master Bedroom. It was an unexpected surprise that added a bit of elegance to the room.
From ground breaking to the grand opening, it took only 3 months to pull this project together. Cherry did a great job and we love how this model home turned out! Furnitureland South is lucky to have such a talented designer in Cherry Yount who was able to help turn Tripp’s beautifully crafted house into an beautiful and inviting home.
