Home-A-Rama 2015 Review: Old Town Design Group

(I've decided to split up each home into separate blog posts, so that it is easier and quicker to scroll through pictures and to go back and get the information in the future!  Scroll through to see each of the 5 homes on the 2015 Home-A-Rama home tour.) 

Home #5:  Old Town Design Group & Everything Home

There were a lot of new, surprising things from Old Town Design Group for me.  The homes overall color scheme and design style was a lot darker and more traditional than I typically see from them.  They have one of those building styles that is noticably their own.  I can spot one of their homes a mile away, normally, but this home was very different than what I am used to.  In a good way.  It is refreshing to see a new style and ideas from such a distinct neighborhood builder. (floor plans here)

The home office to the right, as you enter the home.

The powder bathroom to the left, with W A L L P A P E R!!!  Wallpaper is definitely back in style guys!

The kitchen was nothing to write home about, but I loved everything about the eat-in kitchen area. (except the chandelier.  A little too traditional for me.)

Beautiful dresser in the Master Bedroom.

Typically, I see a river rock tile like this on a shower floor, but I loved the rustic twist of running it up the wall as well. And who doesn't dream of having a rain showerhead?!?!

I HAD to snap of picture of this adorable play room, that also doubled as a home gym becase I have this same Ikea rug in my dining room.

A great display of sports memorabilia on the walls.  What guy doesn't dream of having this?!?

This faucet was REALLY neat!  I get giddy over stuff like this!

Another awesome barn door.  I love that you can hide away a secret bar or wine storage in a closet.  A really neat idea.

This shower wall material is new from Kohler.  It looks like stone, but it is actually a fiberglass composite in sheets.  Overall, Kohler is usually a more high end material, so I don't know how this compares to tiled walls in a shower, but when you have to add in labor, waterproof material behind the wall tile, and then the tile itself, this could be a very cost effective way to get a high end look in the shower.

This rustic, unique piece of artwork in the hallway was really beautiful!

Another great use for a barn door.

I love painting interior doors anything but white.  I chose a similar gray for basement doors in this Westfield project I designed.

Overall, I love touring these homes every year and getting inspired for my own design projects, but actually I was slightly disappointed this year.  I felt like the interior decorating was not as on point as the past.  There weren't a lot of new ideas or trends that I haven't seen before, and unfortunately, I just wasn't that inspired.

Each home of course was gorgeous and had its fun surprises.  I LOVED how KBD Home decorated and designed their home!  It was refreshing to see something different and fun from them.  I think my expectations were a little high this year because last years home tour was SO amazing!  It was a great day walking around on a Thursday afternoon, and overall every home was just gorgeous and so fun to tour!  It is always fun touring someone else's house!

Stay tuned for a list and pictures of a round up of all the details and reoccurring design trends I noticed in all 5 homes.

Last years Home-A-Rama was located in Westfield, IN in the neighborhood of Brookside.  Next year, Home-A-Rama tour will be back in Westfield in the Chatham Hill neighborhood.
