Southern Living Community: Get Holiday Inspired With a Festive Model Home Tour

Wednesday, Nov 29, 2017  |  admin  |  At Home


So you may have already heard about, and perhaps have even already toured, our new Southern Living inspired model home. Either way, we don’t want you to miss out on what’s new. In the spirit of the season, we now have our model decked out beautifully for the holidays, and it’s a stunning sight to see!

Once you experience it, and the entire Harbor Club neighborhood for that matter, you’ll understand our pride in being chosen as a Southern Living inspired community. We genuinely enjoy upholding the philosophy of creating “environments that foster gatherings, interactions, and celebrations” — especially during the holidays. Our decorated Southern Living inspired model home is no exception.

Here’s why:

The decor

The universal centerpiece of the holidays is, of course, the Christmas tree. Is there such a thing as going overboard on decorating such an iconic piece? We don’t think so. Afterall, it has to match the swag on the mantel, the wreaths on the doors, the pretty centerpieces, and the rest of the festive trimmings throughout the house. As you’ll see in our model, use of bold colors, mixed materials, seasonal flowers, and a mix of both traditional and modern accents were encouraged. All will undoubtedly make you feel merry and bright. 

The gatherings

Southern Living communities are ones that have fun-loving neighbors who enjoy celebrating together. No matter the occasion, Southern style and hospitable charm flow. And speaking of flow, Southern Living inspired homes are perfectly set up for entertaining. As you’ll see in our model home, it’s easy to gather your family and friends around a big kitchen island. Afterall, everyone always seems to congregate in the kitchen. We think it’s got something to do with…

The food

Traditional or not, festive food is one of the best parts of the holidays. Delicious feasts and thoughtful homemade goodies abound. Sharing meals with loved ones is a heartwarming way to show you care, especially when using family-favorite, time-honored recipes. Whether it be party-fare, a lovely dinner, fun cocktails, or creative cookies, the fabulous food is always part of the charm of the season.

The giving

Gift giving is as synonymous with the holidays as good old, jolly St. Nicholas. However, everyone knows that it’s more about the giving than receiving. In that regard, tours of our newest Southern Living inspired model home are free of charge. However, a $10 donation is suggested. Those donations will fully benefit the Greensboro-based Circle of Love Center — an organization that provides support services to domestic violence victims and their children in Greene, Morgan, Putnam, Baldwin, and Hancock counties.

So if you’re looking for something to do that inspires glad tidings to all, enjoy a tour of our Southern Living inspired model home. Seeing the beautiful decorations and knowing your donations are going toward a good cause will warm everyone’s hearts for the holidays.
