Vacation Style Living™
It’s living like you are on vacation all year round
Why shouldn’t you feel that way every day?
This is what makes Vacation Style Living™ a reality:
Appeal to all your senses every day.
It should feel casual and relaxed, and center around an inviting open space for dining and entertaining. Your home should also relate visually and physically to your outdoors.
Spa-like feeling of calmness, serenity, and comfort.
When designing this type of sanctuary, we connect all the functional areas (kitchen, dining, mud room, garage, and home office) in to a natural flow that expands, not constrains your sense of space.
Open Plan – the main floor plan of the home needs to be simple and clutter-free. Not all rooms are created equal, so your floor plan shouldn’t be divided-up equally.
Informal Spaces – the idea of a home displaying a furniture is outdated. Today’s lives demand a home where all the spaces are used every day and are integrated in to your lifestyle.
Central Entertaining – daily living and recreation takes place in one large open area that incorporates food preparation, dining and socializing. Not matter how big or small your home is, people just love being in the kitchen – that’s where all the action is!
Outdoor Spaces – the seamless flow from inside to outside enhances the smooth feel of a Vacation Style Living™ Home. Outdoor features like decks, patios, grottos, gazebos, pools and gardens should be an extension of your interior. Your unique outdoors should flow right through your home’s interior.
Great Views – to delight all our senses it’s important to have direct views to the outdoors from everywhere inside your home. You can frame a spectacular view from a bedroom, stretch a line of sight from an entry – or simply create a continuous experience thru multiple areas straight through to the outside. All of these elements allow you to connect to the outdoors and enjoy your home even more.
Natural Materials – stone, wood, metal and glass complete the sensory feel of this Vacation Style Living™ Home. Organic building materials really do help us connect with nature, which enhances the sense of being “on vacation” and relaxing at home all year round.
Measuring more than 10,000 square feet, with 2,000 square feet of pre-designed outdoor space, the Vacation Style Living™ Home boasts an open-plan layout. Staircases are located at the ends of the house instead of in the middle to eliminate dead space, and only three doors—two to the bathrooms and one to the library—separate the ground-floor spaces from one another. The airy design emphasizes easy living, both for family and entertaining purposes; a functional, casual vibe; a seamless flow to a host of outdoor spaces that include balconies, patios, a grotto and a pool; natural materials like stone, wood, metal and glass; a low-voltage LED lighting system; and Control 4 home automation. Buyers can choose from other, similar designs.
