In this latest installment of Shades and Highlights, the design-build team at Highlight Homes would like to shine the spotlight on a number of people, companies and design trends that inspire us. That’s right, even gifted craftsmen like ours look outside the walls of our own office for inspiration from time to time. We do so to constantly grow, learn and improve so that we might inspire YOU with our original custom home and renovation designs.
Fall Colors:As the temperatures start to drop, it’s easy and affordable to “warm up” the interior of your home through the use of beautiful fall paint colors. Try a splash of Sherwin Williams’ earthy orange Gingery (SW 6363), luxurious deep Burgundy (SW 6300), or rich dark chocolate Marooned (SW 6020) and put a little “fall on your wall” this season.
- Zana Dillard of Dillard & Company Realty Group: Builders often build more than houses. In this industry, relationships with trusted sources and word-of-mouth are key elements to a company’s success. Zana has proven herself to not only be an excellent advocate for Highlight Homes’ work, but she’s also an outstanding and highly respected licensed associate broker, senior marketing specialist, and certified luxury home specialist who has personally closed more than $120 million in residential sales since 1998. She is the first president of the luxury homes division of Keller Williams. To learn more about Zana and her realty group, visit Dillard & Company online.
- Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Magazine: Not only is this beautifully wrought publication a great local resource, the fine homes displayed within can serve as inspiration to your own future renovation projects. While we hate to suggest that you cut photos out of a pristine issue of AHL, you could collect the images that really speak to you in a “Dream Book” as you plot and plan an upcoming remodel. Not only will the “Dream Book” help you shape your projects, it will serve as a valuable communication tool between you and your contractor/remodeling company. Learn more about the “Dream Book” in our article, Inspiration Accumulation.
- Weather Stripping: This simple tool is available at any big box home improvement store or mom and pop hardware shop. While the current early fall temperatures invite us to open the windows and let the fresh air in, there will come a time when you’ll want to keep those nasty drafts out. There’s no time like the present to prepare for that inevitability. Weather stripping is a cost-effective way to save on energy costs, improve the comfort of your home by reducing air leaks around windows and doors, and can be easily installed by the homeowner him/herself.
