The Veracruz model features a spacious great room plan with 3 bedrooms, a den and a bonus room. What makes this home plan distinct is the ability to fit a sectional in the great room for seating with plenty of additional space. This home also boasts a large Master Suite with additional seating space that opens out to an outside fireplace feature. The use of high end, clean line furnishings with mixed materials give this home its sense of sophistication. Stained wood beams and accents bring warmth to the home.
We talked with ARH Model Home Interior Designer, Kim LaQuire, to learn more about this model home and how she incorporated current trends into her design.
How would you describe the style of this model?
The overall feel of this home is light and airy, clean line modern.
What did you enjoy most about this particular project?
It was a pleasure to work with the builder and their team. I love seeing it all come together. After putting in many hours of work, the best part of my job is the end result and knowing the builder is pleased.
What was the biggest challenge for you during this particular project?
Because this was the 3rd time for me designing a Veracruz plan, there were no real challenges on this particular project. There was some duplication of details from a previous Veracruz model, so everything went pretty smoothly as planned.
What is one of your design secrets/ tricks that you used in this project?
I would not say that I used any particular secret or trick on this project. However, when designing a model, I create a family, giving each space its own identity. For example, this particular model is marketed for a family with older children. So I think about the ages, creating fun spaces for both a boy and a girl. I then carry out the family theme as if they truly live there.
What feature in this particular project would you want in your home?
I enjoy the fact that there are sliding glass doors in the great room, casual dining and master suite that allow the home to open up .The outdoor living space is my favorite with pool, spa, outdoor kitchen and fireplace.
