Amelia Laster Puts the Finishing Touches on Homerama: Our Design and Merchandising Manager Gives Tips & Details on The Jefferson’s Interior Design

Amelia Laster, our Design and Merchandising manager completes the finishing touches on Jagoe Homes’ Homerama entry. The luxurious Jefferson Craftsman home is masterfully designed for family living and ultimate entertaining. You can tour this home at Catalpa Farms, a Conservation Community in Fisherville, Kentucky, located just east of Louisville, Kentucky. The Builder Industry Association of Louisville hosts this annual event to showcase custom built new homes at a single site. Each home is fully-furnished, landscaped and features the latest in building trends, technology and interior design.

While about 30,000 people attend the event each year, some of the most common questions are, “where did you get that table,” or, “how much was that sofa,” or, “where can I find that countertop?” Jagoe Homes’ 2018 Homerama home features a multitude of innovations such as an abundance of oversized windows, a floor to ceiling linear tile Plazmafire fireplace and cathedral ceiling with wood beam detail, just to name a few.

Much of the awe this home radiates comes from its construction, but it’s beautifully capped off by Amelia Laster’s interior design. “With every Jagoe Model Home, I sit down with our VP of Product, Lindsey Hughes, and we discuss the demographic of our buyer in that area,” Amelia states. “I do research on current trends and then play a matching game and select which trend I think will grab the attention of the buyer we are targeting. Not long ago I did a Facebook poll with three different trends and paid attention to the age group and life stage that selected each trend. That helped tremendously because THEY told me what they wanted to see.”

During the process, Amelia says that once she has the design scheme in mind, she finalizes the floor plan with the VP of Product and the VP of Architecture, Paul DiGiorgio, to finish the floor plan, features and color selections based on the design scheme. “For example,” Amelia details, “for our Homerama home we wanted to be on trend with an open, modern and airy floor plan featuring an amazing kitchen, entertaining space and an Owner’s Suite that would WOW. Navy has been a strong color for the last few years, and it has stayed on top because of its ability to work in any design. By pairing it with black and white and adding touches of chrome, wood and leather, we were able to make the home feel modern and fresh. The use of tufting and nail head details in the upholstered furniture added traditional touches that bring the design to the transitional side of modern, broadening the appeal.

Amelia on her favorite places to shop: “I’m a Trade Partner with several companies and can purchase at wholesale, so I buy from all over. I do 90% of my shopping online because it aids me in planning out the home. I also use Pinterest to create design boards. I always try to Pin a clickable link that homeowners can purchase through if they see something in one of our homes they would like to have for themselves. If I need some retail therapy, you’ll find me at HomeGoods, TJ Maxx, Target, and Marshalls. With each home, I like to add touches that represent the community, so I’ll seek out local artisans and boutiques to purchase those items.”

IBS 2018: New Products from Our Vendors from the International Builders Show

IBS 2018: New Products from Our Vendors at the International Builders Show in Orlando

The International Builders Show (IBS) is a world-wind for Jagoe Homes employees. With three days of non-stop education, show floor time, and networking, we are excited to share with you some of the new products that several of our vendors debuted at the convention from January 9th – 11th in Orlando, Florida.

Sherwin Williams – Indoor Paint

Sherwin Williams has made color-matching smarter with the ColorSnap Match smart device app, which pairs with a specially-designed ColorSnap Match paint color matching device. IBS attendees saw that the ColorSnap Match use can press the paint color matching device directly against a paint swatch or solid color of any kind to transfer an image of that color directly to the app. The app will precisely identify a Sherwin-Williams paint color, provide a palette of similar colors, or identify a Sherwin-Williams color that closely resembles the color that the device has picked up. With so many similar paint colors, this will be an easy way for all of our home buyers to choose colors with confidence.

Formica – Laminate Countertops

Formica continues to impress us with their innovations in laminate. This is not your grandmother’s countertop! Formica Corporation debuted the Quartz Composite, inspired by the look of traditional quartz, which is a much more expensive countertop material like granite. Created from concrete and recycled glass, Formica’s Quartz Composite patterns include medium to fine-fill background particulates and a blue-gray river-like vein. The composite’s Artisan finish offers a smooth, slightly glossy surface that brings out the details of the pattern. Formica also showed off its Magnetic Laminate – perfect for any kids room, where you can place this product on a wall. This is ideal for communication and display for a strong magnetic effect that can be written on with chalks or special board markers.

Napoleon – Fireplaces

Napoleon launched two new electric fireplaces this year at IBS – Alluravision and CLEARion. CLEARion is the industry’s first see-through electrical fireplace. While some people still prefer a more traditional standard gas fireplace, this is quite an innovation! The 48-inch fireplace fits in a standard wall cavity and can heat both sides of a room separately with different temperatures, and can heat a room that is up to 800 square feet in size. It is all electric, so that means that this product can be installed with no gas lines or vent runs. It can be plugged into the wall or wired directly into an electrical system. Alluravision is a frameless electric fireplace that can be built in or wall mounted without the need for venting. Homeowners can change the speed, color, and display of the flames for added customization.

Kwikset – Door Locks

Kwikset is growing its line of smart locks through partnership with Amazon to work with the new Amazon Key technology. Amazon Key allows Prime members in 37 cities to receive in-home delivery and grant secure home access for guests using the Amazon Cloud Cam and a compatible smart lock. Kwikset offers two of the lock options available when purchasing the system– Kwikset SmartCode 914, a touchpad smart lock, and Kwikset Convert, a smart lock conversion kit that converts standard door hardware in rentals to a smart lock – to work exclusively with the Amazon Key In-Home Kit. Kwikset is also expanding the Kevo line of Bluetooth enabled touch-to-open smart locks with Kevo Contemporary, a new square-shape contemporary style for a modern aesthetic.

LP Building Products – Siding

LP Building Product’s Smartside group is a tall order! The new cedar texture vertical siding comes in lengths of up to 16 by 4 feet and also comes pre-printed. LP also introduced the Perfection shingle, which features cleaner lines and what a company official called a “modern classic look.”

Simpson Strong-Tie – Hurricane Clips

You may be wondering what this is, but Simpson Strong-Tie has made an impressive building innovation that one of our owner’s, Bill Jagoe, was especially excited about. Simpson Strong-Tie’s new Fascia-Fastening Solution is designed to securely fasten composite and PVC fascia boards while providing corrosion resistance. The two-part system consists of stainless steel fascia screws and a counterbore bit, which bores a hole that is wider than the shank of the screw. Designed for use with ½-inch to ¾-inch fascia boards, the Fascia-Fastening Solution accommodates expansion and contraction of installed boards to prevent material failures due to changing environmental conditions.

We are rolling out even MORE innovations for our team in addition to our vendor’s new products for 2018 – Stay Tuned!

Celebrate the Holidays with Jagoe Homes at 4200 during the Owensboro Symphony Tour of Homes

We are opening up our gorgeous Model Home in 4200 to the public during the 2017 Owensboro Symphony Tour of Homes! Each year, the Owensboro Symphony Christmas Tour of Homes showcases some of the region’s most stunning and exclusive homes. On Saturday, December 9th from 10 AM – 2 PM, guests are invited to tour each of these lovely homes. Our 4200 Model Home, which features the Pinot floorplan, was beautifully and personally decorated by our Design and Merchandising Manager, Amelia Laster, AKBD.

  • 4200 2017 owensboro symphony tour of homes owensboro kentucky

Special Thank You to Welborn Floral Company for our Stunning Exterior and Interior Greenery Decor!
Amelia Laster, AKBD, Jagoe Homes Design and Merchandising Manager

Amelia initially decorated our gorgeous 4200 Model with a predominantly black, white, gold, and gray pallet, so she “felt the Christmas decor needed to reflect personality of the home.” Of course, the family tree traditionally belongs in the living room, but how do you decorate a bedroom? Amelia says that, “it’s easy to bring holiday cheer to any bedroom by adding pillows that match your color scheme, filling vases or trays with ornaments and placing them on a nightstand or a dresser, or even replacing a focal piece on the wall with a wreath.”

Lights are sure to bring your home many “cheers”. If the commonly-used string of lights isn’t really your thing, light up the season with a brilliant array of paper luminaries. Line them up along your front walkway, or scatter them on your front porch for a bright, twinkling Christmas display that’s simple and affordable. A holiday wreath can also make a cheery entrance to any home. “A traditional greenery wreath with a simple red bow is absolutely my favorite,” Amelia claims. “I have long needle pine wreaths throughout my home. I’m also a big fan of red berry wreaths with ornament wreaths being a close third.”

As for sticking to a more traditional color palette, Amelia recommends a lot of red and green with touches of black. “This year,” she adds,” I included black and white buffalo check in my decor.” Another traditional pattern is not just for collared shirts – use a plaid theme for your Christmas decorations for an old-school take on holiday cheer. To avoid overloading on one pattern, don’t be afraid the mix and match plaids of varying sizes and scales. Start with a transparent plaid garland, and decorate with metallic, solid-colored ornaments.

 

Tickets are now on sale for the Owensboro Symphony Tour of Homes for $25 online advanced purchase, or at select retail outlets until December 8th. Tickets may also be purchased on the day of the event for $30 at First Presbyterian Church located at 1328 Griffith Avenue from 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM.

Sun products are designed to maximize energy-efficiency. The frame and sash materials are designed to combat the harsh effects of the weather so that Sun Windows and Doors will provide protection and energy-efficiency year after year. The insulated glass systems use the latest advances in energy performance technology. This includes new generation Low-E glass, Argon gas filled air spaces, and Duralite™, the most advanced warm-edge insulated glass spacer system available.

Sun products are also designed to prevent air infiltration around the opening sashes and panels when they are closed. This helps prevent energy loss and makes the home more comfortable. Sun products are top quality in the industry, competing with the the major industry brands.

Notable Features with every Sun Window:
  • Family owned with true lifetime warranty
  • Made with “virgin vinyl” – holds over time
  • Four-corner welding – provides a structurally sound window
  • Non-metallic spacer – energy efficient, less conductor of heat
  • Best Argon gas retention
  • Best Low-E glass

The entire Jagoe Homes Sales Team was fortunate enough to tour the Sun Windows factory on May 12th. The team met with John Anderson in Owensboro and was able to see up close and in person how every window is made for every Jagoe Home.

Make Your Home Pet Friendly

Pets are more than just animals. It’s important that homeowners with pets make their home pet friendly.

Our furry, feathered, and finned friends require time, attention, and a home that is just as safe and comfortable as it is for us. Most people don’t think about pets when they are building their new home, not even the pet owners themselves. Over half of all homes have pets living in them, but animals are still an afterthought when it comes to home design and improvements. Here are some things to consider for your pet through the design process.

When you’re planning a home for both you and your pets, consider their particular needs. Think about whether you’re putting your door-dashing dog on a high-traffic street. Will your protective pup go postal on guests? How can you make your multi-story home comfortable for your elderly dog? What common household items are hazardous to pets and not humans?

Mudrooms – What Are They? 7 Elements of a Family Entry

7 Elements of a Perfect Family Entry – What They Are, and How to Best Utilize Them in Your Home.

Unlike the front entrance to your home, your family entry (formerly known as a mudroom) is your overly-used second entrances that you normally do not want guests to see.  They take a beating.  It’s one of those rooms that older homes do not have, and many of us pine for.  It is a hardworking space.  Even the smallest family entry is helpful and Efficient for keeping your home clean and organized.  Here are seven elements of the perfect family entry.

family entryHooks & Racks

Coats, hats, scarves, backpacks – they all need somewhere to hang out.  If you do not currently have a family entry in your home, this is a good place to start small.  Try putting in multiple rows of hooks to maximize the usage of your wall space.

Bench

The next most important element of a family entry.  When you come home, what’s the first thing that you do?  You more than likely kick your shoes off.   A bench would allow you to do this with ease, especially with shoes that are harder to get off, like boots.  You can also store the sandals and tennis shoes that you use often underneath.  A boot tray next to it would help to condense the mess as well.

family entryCubbies

The ultimate family entry feature is a set of open cubbies.  Have one for each member of your family, so that everyone has their own storage space.  High storage would be more for seasonal items, while lower storage would be used for everyday necessities.

Closet

Even though a family entry is sort of like one giant closet, providing a designated closet in the room is great for out-of-season wares, sports equipment, utility storage, cleaning supplies, and miscellaneous items you would rather have out of sight.

family entryThe Laundry Room

Laundry rooms have moved out of the basement and into other more convenient areas of the home.  Adjacent and/or convenient to the family entry creates the perfect place for them.  It makes sense to quickly and easily throw dirty clothes and linens directly into the wash without dirtying up the rest of your home.

Sink

A utility sink is useful for gardening, cleaning up paint and crafts, or other messier duties that you do not want around your beautiful kitchen sink.

family entryHard Surface Flooring

Durable and easy-to-clean is the most sensible flooring option for a family entry and laundry room.  Vinyl, hardwood, and tile are great options for the family entry, while vinyl and tile are most ideal for the laundry room.

Let the Light into Your Home

Lighting in your home can brighten or damper your mood according to room, natural light, windows and doors, and types of indoor and outdoor lighting. Let the light into your home with these simple tips!

Whether it is subtle or not, lighting makes a huge difference to any living space. It can take a room from dull and drab to bright and cheery, or it can add just enough softness to create a calm atmosphere. Lighting does more than add function to a room; it affects your mood. Have you ever noticed that when it has been rainy for a few days, your mood suffers? Then, on sunny days you tend to be more cheerful and energetic? This same concept translates to the home, where the lighting in each room can affect your mood.

The good news is, knowing that different kinds of lighting can help boost your spirits or unwind after a long day, there are things you can do with the right lighting equipment and lighting fixtures in each room to create a positive atmosphere in your home.

The Family Room

large-30-20160513The living room is where you gather as a family, where you visit with guests and where you enjoy entertainment. For many people, this is one of the most-used rooms in the home, so the lighting here is important.

You likely want a cheery yet homey atmosphere in your living room. A strong ceiling light and accent lights like floor lamps, smaller lamps and wall sconces can accomplish this. Keep in mind that there may be areas in your living room, like art, shelves or bookcases that you want to highlight, so these spaces may require recessed lighting that can be directed to highlight special features. If you watch television or like to kick back and relax in your living room, install lights with dimmers so you can adjust the brightness according to what is happening in the room.
