Hometown Design Team's Finished Project at 101 Morgan Manor

Hometown Design Project Complete

Well it was a long road, but our Hometown Design project is complete. For those of you just now reading about the Hometown Design project, let me recap…

The KRC Homes custom home builder team, decided to ask a group of talented locally known women to help us design a house to put on the market to sell. We met, collaborated and passed around pictures of inspiration to create a knock out of a house. Each member of the team had a room to decorate, and in the end, KRC Homes had to put these ideas in place all while keeping it at certain price point.

Let’s break this down room by room to show you how we pulled these design ideas off.

Exterior-Adrien Rutledge

Adrien Rutledge…that’s me, member of KRC Homes, LLC. I was in charge of the exterior design of the home. The Hometown Design team decided to go with a modern farmhouse theme. So I wanted to pull this off with some unique features while keeping it clean.

Now let’s see how we pulled this off

Foyer-JoEllen Power

JoEllen Power is my mother in law. JoEllen’s favorite design feature was seeing the transom come to fruition. This was something she had admired for quit some time and was anxious to see it put into place.

Living Room-Melissa Miller

Melissa Miller is the co-owner of a Georgetown favorite when it comes to shopping…Em + Me Boutique. Check out her shop here. Melissa’s thoughts: “I love beams! They give a cozy feel all the way to the top of a room. This fireplace says welcome, sit down and stay awhile, add pretty bookshelves full of your favorite memories and it really makes a house a home.”
