An Inside Look at the Latest Design Trends in Our Newest Model Home

Thursday, May 5, 2016  |  Harbor Club  |  Latest News


2016 is looking quite stylish — and so is our brand new model home! Check out how we’ve incorporated some of the hottest new interior design trends at our newly finished model home located at 1030 Carnoustie Drive.

Houzz stipulates that islands have increased in importance as a central feature of the kitchen. Not only do they provide more workspace for prepping meals, they’ve become favorable seating and storage areas. House Beautiful also predicts that everyone will love a pretty pendant this year, and the ones used in our kitchen certainly make a statement.


A recent Wall Street Journal article stipulated that old world ornamentation is a hot trend too. One of the contributors stated that, “People want traditional and dressy, with a shot of nostalgia, to feel like everything is going to be OK.” You can see it very clearly with the use of this delightful chandelier in the living room of our model home.


Pantone recently named Serenity, a beautiful powder blue color, as one of two Colors of the Year (the other being Rose Quartz.). They describe “Serenity” perfectly, stating that it is, “weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.” With that in mind, it’s the perfect color for the calming master bedroom in our model home.

As per Decoist, bold mirrors are yet another design trend that has become increasingly popular. You can see an example of this trend in the master bedroom (above) and master bathroom (below).


Houzz states that outdoor fabrics are now being utilized indoors. Outdoor fabrics have come a long way, making it challenging to distinguish them from traditional fabrics typically used indoors. This is a very fitting trend for homes at Harbor Club, considering that we are on Lake Oconee and favor a multitude of outdoor activities, such as swimming, boating and of course, golfing on our award-winning course.


Speaking of outdoors, Macala Wright shared that the number 1 interior design trend in 2016 is “Bringing the Outdoors In”. Our model home was built with that in mind, offering up gorgeous transitional spaces between indoors and out. Enjoy your cup of coffee on the screened dining porch off the kitchen (shown below) or take refuge on the huge vaulted covered porch off the living room (shown above). There’s also the large terrace level where you and your company can comfortably lounge while enjoying the view of the hardwood trees and pond.


Sure, these images are great to look at but there’s nothing like seeing this gorgeous new home in person.
