Duluth, Ga, May 18, 2018 – Serving as a “slice of life” for visitors to Chestnut Farms in Kennesaw, the professionally merchandised model home at the West Cobb community is now open to the public. Merchandised by Tracy Cook of Design Etc., the home represents one of the builder’s most popular floor plans – the stately and sophisticated Manchester, showcasing over 3,600 square feet of living space including four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms at the heart of the Kennesaw neighborhood.
“Our model homes set the stage for homebuyers,” said Paran Homes’ President, Michael Rosenberg. “As they step through the front door and travel through each room, we want them to have 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 massive island in the kitchen. When they see the upstairs media space, we want them to imagine their kids happily playing there or knocking out their homework before dinnertime. And when they stroll through the expansive master suite, it’s our hope that they can see themselves beginning and ending each day in that space as part of their own personal ‘happily ever after.’ Tracy has done an amazing job painting a picture of what life might be like if one lived in Chestnut Farms.”
The designer drew inspiration from the home itself when planning her design, which features elements of white on white and soft hues juxtaposed against dark wood floors, textured upholstery and dramatic accent pieces. Seeking a “less is more” approach, she endeavored to make the design as functional as it is fetching with a homework station in the media room and a 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.
“There is a lot of natural light in this home – it’s an inviting, happy place,” recalled Cook. “I wanted to keep the look fresh, clean and uncluttered. We all have so much clutter in our daily lives. This home represents the ideal we all want for our own lives – a clutter-free, tranquil, joyful space to raise a family.”
Cook describes the design as vintage meets modern with distressed wood pieces, antique elements and thoroughly current upholstered furnishings. Some of her personal favorites include the stylish dining room, home office with partners desk and reclaimed shutter as an eye-catching wall accent, and serene master suite.
“I love all of Paran Homes’ special unexpected, practical touches, like the soft-close drawers in the kitchen, abundance of storage spaces throughout, generously sized bedrooms, upstairs laundry room that’s accessible from the master closet and spacious covered back porch with fireplace. My absolute favorite element of this home is the must-see oversized shower in the master bath. It’s like everyday is a spa day!”
