The Inspired Build: Incorporating Exceptional Experiences into Your New Home

Imagine your last adventure. Did you travel somewhere new or perhaps a tried and true, beloved hot spot? How did it make you feel? Were the surroundings exhilarating and exciting or maybe calm and serene? At Drees, we believe your experiences should shape your surroundings. That’s why we invite you to bring your favorite experiences to your new floor plan. Once you’ve pinpointed what you love, let us surround you with eye-catching architecture and stylish selections to match.

For example, take a tropical vacation. How do you infuse your most favorite features of that experience into a space you’ll immerse yourself in every day?

1 | Incorporate organic elements.

Imagine wood tones and natural elements throughout your home. These days, organic isn’t just reserved for lovers of bohemian style. Those who gravitate towards traditional and modern aesthetics can also embrace light and neutral palettes, matte and brushed fixture finishes, and texture via materials.

2 | Let the sun shine in.

The bright, natural light can do wonders for your mood and energy level. When selecting a floor plan, be mindful of the elements that can provide a welcoming, sun-kissed interior. For example, perhaps its the perfect placement of windows or even a multi-pane, sliding glass door that provides you with a seamless connection to the great outdoors.

3 | Make color count.

Think through the feeling you would like your space to evoke and then go from there. Is it calm that you crave or energizing and cheery hues? In the example above, the rich, green statement wall evokes an exotic, resort-style vibe. How nice would it be to feel like you’re on vacation every day in your own owner’s suite retreat?

4 | Take cues from nature.

When finishing off your space, incorporate leafy greens, feature your favorite scenic photos and display souvenir finds that have the power to transport you back to that magical place and time. Think vacation discoveries like an exceptional shell, an eye-catching rock or even a beautiful textile to add dimension and significance to your décor.

From vacation photographs and Pinterest pins to your final floor plan, Drees makes to easy to bring it all together. We know your home is more than a dwelling. It’s an expression of who you are and what you value. Designing a custom home is a very personal endeavor, and we want to be here to help you every step of the way. Begin your inspired build today!
