Ambiance on Parade: Styling an Award Winner for Creative Homes
When you enter the Miller Farms neighborhood just outside Stillwater, Mn, the beautiful rolling hills and natural wetlands frame this development of newer homes built to complement the landscape. Among these is a 2017 award winner by Creative Homes, styled by Ambiance Home Staging for the Parade of Homes.
The double-door entry sets the tone of this rustic two-story home, leading into a large foyer.
Stepping down to the main living area, the gourmet kitchen and dining areas flow into the great room, featuring a beautiful stone fireplace, beamed ceilings, and expansive windows with an amazing view. This room called for a warm neutral palette to complement the fresh, white backdrop and fireplace tones. The cozy three-season porch with its knotty-pine paneling was also styled with neutral tones, comfy wicker pieces, and a large rug to tie everything together.
The second floor loft is a surprising bonus space that was styled with just enough furniture pieces to encourage a little getaway for reading, watching movies, or simply enjoying a cup of coffee while taking in the views of the beautiful countryside.
Each of the second-floor’s four bedrooms and three baths were styled to appeal to a wide range of buyers, with fresh colors, layers of linens, and cozy sitting areas to show the functionality of each room.
The beautiful lower level of the home is an entertainer’s dream, with a large bar off the great room, and a cozy fireplace that was the perfect backdrop for a game table.
Every year, the Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC) awards the coveted Reggie Award to builders of homes in 18 different price categories. Ambiance styled seven of those homes, including this model home for Creative Homes. This home was the Reggie winner in the $675,000-$770,000 price category.
