I'm headed over to the model home. I'm so excited to show you because it's been a

several month project that the JD's team has been working on. I'm very excited

that the Jones company hired us to decorate this model we decorated it from

top to bottom!

So we're here at the Jones company model home, let's go on in! So we're in the

entryway of the model home and I'll tell you one of the things I love about this

model home is the floor plan. Now, in this hallway you'll notice they took the

wainscoting up pretty high which made that pretty tricky for me to try to find

some artwork to fit above it but, found one and quite happy. Alright, let me show

you the guest room first, come on back here.

Okay, this is the guest room. Now, as in with every project, there's a budget so

that's where I'm gonna try to think through what I need to spend my money

where do I need to save it. The bedding ensemble actually is a home goods find

and I pulled several things together, in fact, the really dark pillows that you

see here are just regular throw pillows but I thought it pulled very well

together. The furniture was another place that I

saved. I found a dresser and a nightstand on Facebook marketplace and I chalk

painted it blue to match within the design that I'm doing in this room and

then for the headboard this is a Magnolia Home piece, love the wood tone

color and if you'll notice, I found two pictures that have the same kind of wood

tone in there. So I wanted this room to be comfortable for guests so let's head

into guest bathroom and let me show you a few things in there. So instead of

having a builder-grade just square mirror I went and found

this mirror at Lowe's and for a guest bathroom just kinda keep things minimal

but yet, you want your guests to feel that it's a really kind of cozy and

happy place. Artwork, plants, and some special hand soap,

are the perfect thing. So now that you've seen the guest bedroom I'm going to show

you the man's office and it's kind of one of my favorite rooms. Just love the

rich color in here and this is actually a buffet but because it was black with

gold, paired so beautifully with the artwork and it's a great place to hide

all of the office work. When I'm adding accessories to any room I really like

unique things that you just can't find anywhere and where I'm gonna go is the

flea market! And usually my daughter Sarah and daughter-in-law, Alice trail along with

me! I found an old, old ledger book at the flea market just, I don't know, I just love it.

I just think what history is with this. I also found these antique brass elephants

and Mama and a baby so on the bookshelf we have old and new, again, a flea market

find, some old metal trays, these are some new accessories but kind of still

keeping the theme of a manly room and if he's working and he's wondering what

time it is this is the coolest clock! 60 inches! I thought, you dont need anything else on the wall, this

looks stunning! One of my favorite things about this model home is the open floor

plan. Let's check out the living room. So for the furniture layout in the living

room is pretty easy. The Builder put a TV above the mantel so we placed the couch

facing the TV and then a loveseat facing the patio and

then just one chair right here. What's so great about this room is the open light,

the open windows there's just a great view no matter where you sit. Now, when I

notice with clients with living rooms they struggle, they do a great job picking

their furniture, I find where the struggle is is choosing maybe some of

the smaller tables and then accessories so I always lean towards adding a little

greenery and some candles and I love books, just keep it simple and

uncluttered. The definite wow factor of this home is the dining room and kitchen

area. We were able to place an 84-inch table in the dining room. I have eight

parsons chairs sitting around it and these parsons chairs are so adorable

with the little bows on the back. For the buffet, I chose a black buffet.

Everything doesn't have to be matchy-matchy in a room but what I love

about this buffet is that it's extra tall and given the height of this room,

it's perfect. I put simple accessories on top, a mirror,

and two buffet lamps with mercury glass that just looks stunning off of the

black. I know you've probably heard me say it before but one place to put money

is definitely in your drapes. These drapes are velvet,

they're completely yummy with a beautiful white tape on the end and we

took them very high up on the wall. One of the wonderful things about this

kitchen is this huge bar area it seats six! How great is this when you have a

party and you have guests at this table and this is a perfect place to put kids,

I mean, easy clean-up! I love, again, the openness of this kitchen it's so well

lit, beautifully beautifully sized, I love the white marble and then for the

backsplash, these are just subway tiles but they're beveled, just a little bit of

an upgrade from just your normal subway tiles. A really neat, unique DIY that you can

do in your kitchen, I have a friend, she has I believe is called a Crickett, I sent

her this logo and she cut it out and painted it on this cutting board and we put

in the corner. It's a great way to add a little bit of style in your kitchen. Now for the

windows. This would be a great place if you wanted to add some color or pattern

but I wanted to keep things monochromatic so I just got these, they're called,

relaxed roman shades, made. The brilliancy of them was we just put them on a tension

rod and it just added a softness in the kitchen.

I'll let me show you the master bedroom, but before I do, these were another find

from the flea market. Two really cool, narrow windows, fit perfectly in this spot. I

just added a command hook and two little wreaths! I'm a huge believer that the

master bedroom needs to be uncluttered and clean and it is your retreat from

the world. In this design that I did, did beautiful bedding with an upholstered

headboard and then two nightstands and a dresser that matched and I put a bench

at the end of the bed. I find a lot of husbands love benches at the end of the

bed because that's where they want put their shoes on, at my house, it's where the

puppies jump on the bed. I also placed a casual chair over here for sitting and

reading. I made another floral in here in a really unique mercury glass

container that I actually found at HomeGoods and then for in the ceiling, I

asked the Builder to put some raw wood just to give me another texture in this

room. Okay, another cool feature that the Builder

added to this.....

Come on into the master bathroom. A great marriage saver is to have two vanities way far

away from each other.

So we're upstairs. I placed a huge picture up here that looks great when

you're in the bonus room as well as, when you're coming up the stairs. I always say

the bonus room is where you can really have a little bit of fun and of course

living right outside of Nashville, this model home is located in Franklin

so I'm going to pull a little bit of that into this design I found an old

guitar, an old steel guitar, and then this really cool old piece I don't even know

what it was used for but I loved it! So against this wall I placed a sofa table

and I had a fun little craft project. I went on line on Etsy and I ordered a map

of Nashville that was kind of already a little yellow and old and then what I

did I Modge Podged it onto, I had my husband cut out a piece of wood that fit

the exact size of the map and I Modge Podged it on there and so then it had

wrinkles in it so I took an Exacto Knife and kind of cut it open, re Modge Podged

it on, darkened the edges and the last thing I did was I took a little bit

of acrylic brown paint mixed it up, add in a little water and dropped it on to

that mat to look as if it was in the old days it was on the desk and they spilled

their coffee on it. Turned out cool, very cheap DIY. You may recognize this clock

from my office. Again, love the clock especially the big ones. So for up here

in the seating I have slipcovered couch and loveseat- zippers on the back, easy

maintenance! Then, I went on Etsy again and found that Hank Williams poster and

another Ryman Auditorium poster, had them framed and matted exactly the same and I

love how the reds pull off of the dark blue in the wall and then in the corner

I just placed a very simple game table. Some people watching TV,

some people can play games!

Another one of our favorite rooms, this was the teen girl room. I actually did a

whole other video on it but picking the paint color in here, I went through

probably five or six different pink's until I found this beautiful light blush

pink color. Again, had beautiful drapes made, simple chair in the corner and just

simple bedding.

So this is a jack-and-jill bathroom. Kept it very simple, again. Now, the shower

curtain I could not find any shower curtains that were long enough because I

wanted to have the rod really high so we got a shower curtain and Alice actually

sewed some fabric onto the bottom.

This is the teen boy room. Kept it a little

bit industrial. Bedding simple blue and white with a little bit of red on the

bottom. I went to Etsy, let me tell you, if you want something unique in

your house, go to Etsy, there is some great artisans on there and I took the logo

from the high school and she actually had this stitched onto the pillow- I

thought it looked stunning! For this wall decor design I found some old boxing

gloves another flea market find and then I went

online and found Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali poster, had it framed, made a

great little wall decor!

So I want to thank the Jones Company for hiring JD's to decorate this model home.

I want to thank my entire family and staff because it was, it took a village,

to get this all put together. I hope you enjoyed this video! Please subscribe to

my channel because I'm gonna have a lot more videos out later and I hope you

have a great day!
