A Tour of Inspiration’s 5 Luxury Model Homes

A Tour of Inspiration’s 5 Luxury Model Homes

Today we’re continuing on to part 2 of our newest Designer Spotlight Series with Doris Pearlman of Possibilities for Design. (Click here if you missed Part 1!) Follow along as we explore the differences in each of the 5 luxury model homes that make up this stunning community
Progress Lighting: What makes these spaces different than other spaces you’ve designed?

Doris Pearlman: We designed 5 model homes at Inspiration’s community, so each one had to be distinctly different from the other. We achieved this with a meticulous attention to detail, and amplifying the design sequence of each home. The surprise here is that it’s a relatively affordable community, but has the feel of a luxury home residency.

Progress Lighting: How does lighting enhance these spaces?

Doris: One of the mantras we live by is: ‘lighting is the jewelry of the home.’ It’s entirely true. Lighting changes the karma of a home, enhances every space and is truly the finishing touch. It has the ability to transform any space into a major memory point for viewers.

“Lighting is the jewelry of the home.”

Now that we’ve learned what made the firm’s Inspiration community so memorable, let’s take a closer look at each of the 5 model homes built with a backdrop of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains:
The Antero: The Equinox fixtures in the living room and Swing chandeliers in the kitchen with Edison bulbs brought our urban farmhouse design to life. The Nissé chandelier magnified the luxury of the master bedroom.

The Bancroft: The Draper chandelier in the living room and Mingle pendants in the study were the ultimate finishing touch to our “nomad chic” style. This is a design we consider to be reminiscent of the Southwest, with the coloration, textures and lighting of the 21st century. The Compass chandeliers in the master bedroom and master bath also worked together for the ultimate “en-suite” appeal.

The Carson: Our design strategy for this model was tailored for a single woman, in partial or full-time retirement. We chose a teal, grey and white color scheme with Brushed Nickel finishes on our fixtures that would appeal to a more feminine buyer – but would also not alienate a man walking through the model as a potential buyer. The Caress chandelier and pendant package helped us achieve this very look.

The Trelease: This model is for our youngest buyer – possibly moving from a big city – so creating that urban sensibility was crucial. Our use of lighting and fixtures, along with rustic and contemporary surfaces and textures, allowed us to create an authentic urban character in the suburbs. In the kitchen, we designed a metallic backsplash and wall, creating a backdrop and adding interest by staggering Progress Lighting’s Glass pendants over the island.

The Warren: This model’s “garden-inspired” design comes full circle in the kitchen where the island’s pendants are complimented by the breakfast nook’s chandelier, reminiscent of a birdcage. The Fortune chandelier in the master enabled us to create a truly luxurious affect, even in the confined space.
