Amelia Laster Puts the Finishing Touches on Homerama

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.”
