6 model home design ideas we love
Showcasing new homes priced from the high $400,000s to more than $1 million, the beautifully decorated model homes at The Grove Frisco are filled with creative and inspiring design ideas. Here are 6 of our favorites, one from each model home.
Zen-like outdoor living. American Legend’s Plan 1554 model home has a large covered patio, and their backyard landscaping extends outdoor living possibilities with an open-air firepit area. The oversized concrete pavers, black gravel and lush plantings create a soothing Zen vibe for this backyard. As a bonus, it also makes it much easier to maintain.
Painted brick. Whether it’s on the interior or exterior, painted brick adds a classic touch to any wall. We love the dark painted brick wall in the study of Drees’ Violet model home. It’s the perfect backdrop for the textile art hangings behind the industrial chic desk. The dark palette continues along the wall of bookshelves, and the red rug adds an energizing pop of color.
Counter to ceiling backsplash. Most backsplashes end around the bottom line of the cabinets, which is fine. But in Southgate’s Madison III model home, the geometric tile backsplash extends all the way to the ceiling, creating a bold but neutral accent wall in the open kitchen and family room area. The natural tones of the tile are carried through in the painted cabinetry and the oversized island, and in the window seat upholstery in the casual dining room.
Oh, Romeo… A Juliet balcony provides a stunning focal point for the two-story family room in American Legend’s Plan 1620 model home. With its hardwood handrails and wrought iron spindles, the balcony exudes traditional elegance, echoing the materials of the curved staircase in the two-story foyer. Back in the family room, the sleek tile fireplace adds a harmonizing contemporary note.
Relaxing oasis. The freestanding bathtub in the master bathroom of Southgate’s Hanover model home provides a gleaming white focal point for this relaxing retreat. The cabinetry and trim add some dark yin to the bathtub’s light yang. From the large squares of marble and porcelain to the intricate bits of mosaic, the tile in this bathroom displays a masterful blend of scale, texture and color.
A spot to study. From a curved staircase in the foyer to a beamed cathedral ceiling in the family room, Highland’s Plan 296 model home has many standout design features to love. One of our favorite features is the study center, located upstairs between the gameroom and the secondary bedrooms. With its two knee spaces, bookcases and charging outlets, this study center means business. With its tile wall and solid-surface desktop, it also looks great.
