Studio 5 Interiors Wins Best Interior Merchandising for New Marietta Home

Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates Studio 5 Interiors for winning a Gold OBIE in the Best Interior Merchandising – Attached Model $300,000 to $399,999 category for a new Marietta home at North Square. Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council, the OBIE Awards are the premier awards given in the Atlanta new home construction industry.

The decorated Florence model at North Square is modern, fresh and open. The open plan is great for entertaining as well as everyday living for today’s active professional. The interior merchandising is expertly developed to maximize the livability of each room by providing ample seating and functionality. The strategic space planning enhances the size of the rooms by allowing effortless traffic flow throughout, great for entertaining on any scale.

To accentuate the open and airy floor plan, the merchandising entices young active professionals with subtle tones of blush contrasted with crisp, sheer draperies and textures of off-white and gray linens. The soft tones and textures complement the tailored lines of chrome and glass furnishings. The interiors are modern, soft and comfortable with an eclectic mix of unique furniture and abstract art selections that are as individual as the buyer.

By incorporating luxurious finishes and cabinetry, the model portrays a sense of quality rarely seen in townhomes from this price point. This quality is what attracts today’s sophisticated and savvy active professionals. The dark hand-scrapped hardwoods with a slight gray wash add balance by anchoring the room and creating a contrast to the lighter finishes, linen fabrics and sheer draperies.

The merchandising is subtle and touches on interests of entertaining, photography and the necessary home office. Importantly, each of the secondary bedrooms is designed to show its functionality with queen size beds, two nightstands and double dresser. The second bedroom even has space for a desk on one side of the bed, which is a great place for the home computer.

The spacious owner’s suite is dreamy with the king-size, linen-upholstered bed and center seating area accentuated with a modern ceiling chandelier. Touches of gold mixed with linens of all tones and textures develop a unique style that is the added touch to set the owner’s suite apart from the other rooms. The well-appointed owner’s bath is a true retreat from a busy day.  The designer selected oversized porcelain tile flooring, white Carrara-style countertops and white cabinets accentuate the walk-in shower and large garden tub. Spa accessories and large artwork are the finishing touches.

The Florence model is so well received by the target market, 46 units have sold since opening in July 2017, and construction has already started on Phase II.
