model home in kennesaw by paran homes

Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates Paran Homes for winning a Gold OBIE in the Best Interior Merchandising – Detached Models $500,000 to $599,999 category for The Manchester model home at Chestnut Farms, a community of new homes in Kennesaw. Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council, the OBIE Awards are the premier awards given in the Atlanta new home construction industry.

Serving as a “slice of life” for visitors of any community, a well-designed, exquisitely merchandised model home should set the stage for homebuyers. As they stroll through each room, guests should enjoy an immersive experience where they can envision their family gathering around the dining room table for the holidays or sharing stories about the day’s events around the kitchen island. When they see the upstairs media space, they might imagine their kids happily playing there or knocking out their homework before dinnertime. And when they stroll through the expansive master suite, they can see themselves beginning and ending each day in that space as part of their own personal ‘happily ever after.’ This model home accomplishes all of that and more.

The designer has done an amazing job painting a picture of what life might be like if one lived in this community through her use of a “less is more” approach. She drew inspiration from the home itself when planning her design by taking advantage of the home’s natural light which serves as an inviting, happy backdrop. With the lofty goal of creating the ideal every busy person wants in their own lives – a clutter-free, tranquil, joyful space to raise a family, she succeeded in keeping the look and feel of the home fresh, clean and uncluttered. To accomplish that, her overall design features elements of white on white and soft hues juxtaposed against dark wood floors, textured upholstery and dramatic accent pieces. She also endeavored to make the design as functional as it is fetching with a homework station in the media room and drop station near the garage for family members to drop their book bags, laptop bags and purses while charging their smartphones for the next day. Described as “vintage meets modern,” the design showcases distressed wood pieces, antique elements and thoroughly current upholstered furnishings. While all of the rooms are memorable, the most extraordinary spaces include the stylish dining room, home office with partners desk and reclaimed shutter as an eye-catching wall accent, serene master suite, and welcoming outdoor living space.
