It is an exciting time for us here at Rick Burnstead Construction LLC! We are about to start building our first home in Hawthorne Park, our newest neighborhood or 35 custom contemporary homes in Redmond, WA. It’s especially thrilling for me because I get to design our model home. I’d love to take this time to give you a sneak peek into the design direction I am taking for the model home at our newest community, Hawthorne Park in Redmond, WA.
At The Burnsteads, we put a lot of time, thought, creativity, and ingenuity into the design of each new neighborhood and the specific plans of each house. My mission as a Burnstead in-house designer is to create a model home that compliments the house design, features current trends, and allows future buyers the ability to visualize living in the home. It is also our hope that anyone visiting a Burnstead model homes can walk away with a few creative design ideas for furnishing and decorating their own home!
Sneak peek – Here is a glimpse into the design direction for our model home at Hawthorne Park.
Design Concept: Warm Minimalism. The word minimalism might make you think of stark, cool and sparsely furnished spaces, focusing more on form than function. A modern gallery style of decorating that is beautiful, but not always inviting. We add warmth by incorporating larger scale furnishings, natural materials, texture, neutral colors and soft forms. This approach allows the home to be both comfy and modern.
Style: Transitional. A comfortable merging of the best of contemporary and traditional design styles. The challenge here is integrating the two approaches and allowing them to complement one another.
The following are a few photos from some of my favorite design stores to give you a glimpse of what you can expect to see in our new model home! Stay tuned for more information on our newest neighborhood.
