Home Design Trends For 2021

There’s no better time than the beginning of a new year to give your home a “mini makeover.” As you look ahead to 2021, think about the areas of your home that you’d like to spruce up a little (or a lot)! From warm, earthy tones to house plants, there are so many fun trends to try out in your favorite spaces. Take a look at a few top design trends for 2021 that our designers recommend.

Interior Home Design Trends

 

House Plants: If you love the calming, natural vibe of house plants, situate them throughout your favorite spaces, like your kitchen, bedroom, or family room. This is an easy way to spruce up your home without having to make a big adjustment. Try herbs, peace lilies, English ivy, pothos, Chinese evergreens, and more to brighten up your rooms. You can also add pops of color and personality with unique planters.

Bedroom.

Statement Headboards: Nothing says “relaxation” quite like a beautifully designed bedroom. And nothing completes a well-rounded look than a statement headboard for the bed. This year, it’s all about vibrant, lively headboards that become a focal point in the room. From tufted and nailhead styles, to geometric patterns and bright colors, the options are endless. Plus, you can paint an accent wall behind it to complement the look!

Home office.

Home Office: If you’ve already designated a flexible space as an office, you’re ahead of the trend! We’re predicting that home offices are here to stay, which gives you countless opportunities to design and decorate your space, and change it up when you’re ready for something new. The most important thing is to create an office that you’re comfortable working in every day, whether that includes calming plants, accessories like photos and wall art, a soothing wall color, floating bookshelves, a trendy ladder, warm lighting, etc. 

Living room.

Warm, Earthy Tones: Now more than ever, we love the idea of a warm and comforting aura at home. That’s why earthy tones are the perfect colors to incorporate into your spaces, whether as wall colors, in furniture and accessories, throughout table displays and bedding, and more. The natural, earthy look can be created with browns, tans, yellows, warm grays, ivory, soft shades of green, and more — play around with these hues and see what feels best!

Flex Space.

Multipurpose Spaces: Now that you’re spending more time at home, it makes sense to maximize your flexible spaces. For example, if your kids are currently taking virtual classes, you can create a virtual classroom that doubles as a playroom or rec room for after school. For a cozy home office, add storage shelves, a desk, and a chair to your family room (or even your bedroom)! You can also use a flexible room as a home gym and hobby/crafts area, so you and your kids can both utilize the space.

Contemporary Style: No matter the style of your home, whether farmhouse or traditional, we love the look of contemporary touches here and there. Believe it or not, the “grandmillennial” trend is making a huge splash in homes — and it’s so much fun to get creative with! This up-and-coming style is all about comfort, and incorporating the “homey” decor pieces you might find in your grandparents’ home into modern spaces. The grandmillennial trend includes things like floral wallpaper, rattan coffee tables, antique paintings, scalloped lampshades, delicate china, crocheted throws, and more. Try it out and see what feels right!

 

From all of us at Homes By Dickerson, we hope you enjoy sprucing up your home in 2021!

Build a Custom Home in Raleigh

Build a Custom Home in Raleigh

At Homes By Dickerson, we believe your home is much more than walls and fixtures — it’s your place in the world. It’s where you will live your life. That’s why we build your custom home in Raleigh as if we were building it for our own families. Our team takes the time to meet with you and understand your lifestyle, so that we can create a home that fits you just right. We’ll figure out which rooms are needed or unnecessary, how much space you desire, and the look and feel that best complements your personal style. 

Our four state-of-the-art Design Centers display an array of high-quality interior and exteriors sections for you to choose from. With the help of our experienced designers, you’ll start bringing your unique vision to life, from your fixtures to your cabinets and countertops, and everything in between. Our goal is to create a customized home atmosphere that makes you feel safe, secure, and comfortable, no matter what’s going on outside. 

The Process of Building a Custom Raleigh Home Exterior

Of course, the process begins with you — your dreams and your goals. No matter how you prefer to get acclimated to our homes, whether that’s by browsing our visual galleries and floor plans, driving our communities, or even meeting neighbors, this is your time to imagine the life you want to live in a Homes By Dickerson home.

Next, you’ll choose the perfect Raleigh community for you and your family. We believe that where you live determines how you live, which is why we create our custom homes in only the best neighborhoods. We’ll help you determine what you want in terms of surroundings, conveniences, and lifestyle — so whether you want to be closer to downtown, enjoy a shorter commute, or benefit from a larger home site in a tranquil setting, our team will provide you with options that make sense for you.

When it comes to customizing your home, we offer two unique options:

Modify an existing plan in our portfolio

  • Choose one of our existing, award-winning floor plans and customize to fit your family’s needs
  • Place a refundable lot hold on your home site while we finalize your plan and pricing details

Create a custom design

  • Sit down with our on-staff licensed architect to review your goals and needs
  • Get inspired by plans we have done in the past or start from scratch 
  • The design agreement fee can be applied towards the purchase price of your new home

Once you’ve chosen the features and finishes of your home, you’ll have the opportunity to review your personalized pricing and specifications. This will help give you an idea on how to maximize your self-appointed investment range, as well as stay within that range during the process.  Kitchen.

After the details are finalized, you’ll be able to review Homes By Dickerson’s Purchase Agreement, as well as ask any questions before moving forward with paperwork. You’ll receive finalized drawings to ensure that our team has accurately captured your unique vision.

Design center.

Next, we’ll complete the finishing touches — arguably the most fun part of the process! Your personal designer will work closely with you (up to 15 hours) in one of our Design Centers to choose the colors and finishes that reflect your style and preferences.

Throughout different milestones of construction, you’ll have several scheduled opportunities to meet with your project manager onsite and view your home. Whether it’s your electrical walk-through or interior trim walk, you’ll see your home throughout its various stages and be prepared for your homeowner orientation to review final details before closing.

Before we present you with the key to your new home (yes, it’s just as exciting as it sounds!) your closing coordinator will ensure that all details are accounted for and shared with the closing attorney at settlement. Then, once you have closed on The Home of Your Life, you’ll meet with your client care representative, who will guide you through the first year as a Homes By Dickerson homeowner. Our warranty process involves three-month and ten-month walk-throughs, as well as helpful information on maintenance details.

Enjoy the Opportunities in Raleigh Raleigh

If you currently live in or near a larger city, you may be at a point in your life where the hustle and bustle doesn’t excite you anymore. In a neighborhood outside of Raleigh, a small town with a big personality, you have the best of both worlds. You’ll enjoy the peace and quiet of a scenic, secure neighborhood, while being close to the things you love downtown, without all of the traffic, congestion, high prices, and cramped space of larger cities. Outdoor living

If you prefer the intimacy of a local coffee shop or family-owned restaurant, where there’s always a friendly face to see, a neighborhood outside of Raleigh is the place for you. At home, you’ll enjoy the comfort of an open-concept living area that’s designed for connection, along with a wide open outdoor area to enjoy the seasons — then when you’re looking for a downtown excursion, you have the family-friendly fun of Raleigh just a short drive away. From shopping and dining to outdoor recreation (did we mention the beach and skiing opportunities are just a short road trip away?) you can enjoy the things you love, and return to a home and community that feel just right.

Build a Custom Home in Raleigh

When you choose to build a personalized Homes By Dickerson home in a safe, secure Raleigh neighborhood, you aren’t just choosing a beautiful house with beautiful surroundings — you’re choosing peace of mind for today, tomorrow, and every day after that. You’re choosing a lifestyle that’s rooted in simplicity, so you can enjoy your time the way you want to, without anything standing in your way. And of course, with our caring, knowledgeable team by your side, you can be sure that your experience building The Home of Your Life will be just as enjoyable as living in it. 

If you’re ready to move to a custom home in Raleigh, all of us at Homes By Dickerson can’t wait to help make your ideal lifestyle a reality. For more information, please contact us at 919-205-3404.

Parade of Style, Meet the Designer: Olivia Cerrillos!

Parade of Style, Meet the Designer: Olivia Cerrillos!

The Void.

With our Parade of Homes event just around the corner, we’re happy to introduce you to another one of our talented designers! We sat down with Olivia Cerrillos to give you an inside look into how she designed 4 of our remarkable homes: True Arch, The Void, 64 East, and Moss Hill.

True Arch.After graduating from Meredith College with a degree in interior design, Olivia worked in design-related roles that focused on furnishings, tile, cabinetry, and full-service turn-key remodeling. Her work experience combined with her pleasant and welcoming personality ensure that her customers are happy and satisfied with the design process and can call their new house a home. Outside of work, Olivia is an avid camper and enjoys the outdoors with her husband, family, friends, and of course, her four-legged kids (two German Shepherds).

What inspired the unique designs and themes for your homes?

64 East.

True Arch was inspired by 1930s Durham architecture (it pays homage to the history of Durham)! With The Void, I wanted to show that HBD is more than capable of doing super contemporary designs. 64 East was inspired by the landscape of eastern North Carolina. With the Moss Hill Towne, I wanted to show that our townhomes are just as high quality and stunning as our single-family homes, with lots of great design and features.

What is your favorite part about designing homes featured in the Parade of Homes?  

Moss Hill Townhome.

I really enjoy designing for the Parade of Homes because it gives me a chance to try unique designs that allow me to step outside of the box. I use colors, finishes, and products that can inspire future clients when designing their custom home.

We can’t wait for you to experience the distinctive details of The Void, True Arch, 64 East, and Moss Hill homes at Homes By Dickerson’s Parade of Style during the 2020 Triangle Parade of Homes! For more information about this event, please contact us at 919-205-3404.

Parade of Style, Meet the Designer: Susan Falcone!

Parade of Style, Meet the Designer: Susan Falcone!

As our Parade of Homes event approaches, we want to introduce you to the talented designers behind our 10 unique homes. Each designer chose special selections to fit a particular theme, and we’re excited to give you a behind-the-scenes look into their unique process! This week, our team is happy to introduce you to Susan Falcone, who designed our First Fiddle, Duke’s Revival and Eden Retreat homes.

Not afraid to branch out with a bold feature or fun detail, Susan has several award-winning model homes and Parade homes under her belt, and is excited to share the same creativity with her clients. With a background in the building industry with specializations in tile, she’s passionate about working with her clients to incorporate their personalities throughout their homes, while achieving a timeless design. When she’s not working, Susan enjoys spending time with friends and family, particularly her husband and their two cocker spaniels, Stella and Archer. Take a look at what Susan has to say about the distinctive touch she brought to each home!

What inspired you to create First Fiddle’s unique design and theme?  First Fiddle.

The architecture of this specific plan combined with the beautiful wooded lot gave me immediate inspiration. I knew I wanted something that felt modern yet still timeless a house where you could feel right at home in North Raleigh or in the outskirts of Nashville.

What inspired you to create Duke’s Revival’s unique design and theme? Duke's Revival.  

The combination of this house having a true colonial-style exterior and it being located in Durham. I wanted to channel the tradition of a timeless colonial home, but add some fresh, funky details, colors, and finishes to bring it up to date and carry through for years to come.

What inspired you to create Eden Retreat’s unique design and theme?   Eden Retreat. 

The vaulted ceilings and beam details in this house and how the sunroom and master bedroom enclose the outdoor living. I knew I wanted to take advantage of the natural light and the views to the outdoors.

What is your favorite part about designing homes featured in the Parade of Homes?  

Getting to flex my creativity and really push the boundaries of what we do as a company as well as what I’ve done in years prior for Parade of Homes.

Why do you love living in Raleigh? What is your favorite activity to do here?   

The Raleigh area provides a ton of stuff to do, endless places to grab a great meal, and is only a couple of hours away from the coast or the mountains.

We can’t wait for you to experience the exceptional details of the First Fiddle, Duke’s Revival, and Eden Retreat homes at Homes By Dickerson’s Parade of Style during the 2020 Triangle Parade of Homes! For more information about this event, please contact us at 919-205-3404.

Parade of Style, Meet the Designer: Kelsey Hennington!

Parade of Style, Meet the Designer: Kelsey Hennington!

As we continue to prepare for our Parade of Homes event at the end of September, we want to introduce you to another one of our talented designers behind our 10 unique homes! We’re excited to give you a behind-the-scenes look into how Kelsey Hennington designed our Life of Hygge home.

Before joining our team, Kelsey focused on interior design renovations and worked as a project manager for a high-end custom builder. With a natural eye for aesthetics and innovation, Kelsey is passionate about staying ahead of trends and looking for new ways to bring fresh insights and ideas to her clients. A native of Hickory, NC — the heart of the furniture industry — Kelsey is in tune with the quality and craftsmanship of all the products she works with. Outside of the office, she loves to spend time traveling with her husband and their sweet, energetic fur baby. Get to know more about this incredible designer and her distinct thought process!

What inspired you to create Life of Hygge’s unique design and theme?

Life of hygge

 A Nordic/Scandinavian theme is not something we often see in this area, so I wanted to start with something fresh and new! I’m in a place in my life of simplifying and being very intentional in what I bring into my home, the people I surround myself with, and just being the most present that I can be. This design theme is really much more of a lifestyle and way of living, and in my design research it felt exactly like what I have been focusing on personally, so it really spoke to me!

What is your favorite part about designing homes featured in the Parade of Homes?  

I often have ideas throughout the year that I fall in love with but don’t necessarily fit into that “inventory home” feel, needing to attract the most people as possible. So being able to bring those unique ideas to life during the Parade of Homes is the perfect opportunity to really test the boundaries. I love challenging myself with unique ideas, then translating those challenges in the field to make them happen. So it really turns into a growing and learning opportunity for the whole team.

Why do you love living in Raleigh? What is your favorite activity to do here?

Raleigh is such a melting pot of people and experiences. There’s always something new opening that you can’t keep up! I love that you can literally drive 20 minutes, in any direction, outside of Raleigh and have a completely different experience of food, culture, and nature. Yet we all call “Raleigh” home. Some of my favorite activities include college football, the State Fair, the variety of restaurants and breweries, and hopping on the greenway for a walk or bike ride. There’s always something going on, so finding something to do is never hard.

We can’t wait for you to experience the distinctive details of the Life of Hygge home at Homes By Dickerson’s Parade of Style during the 2020 Triangle Parade of Homes! For more information about this event, please contact us at 919-205-3404.

Parade of Style, Meet the Designer: Turner Hairr!

Parade of Style, Meet the Designer: Turner Hairr!

As we gear up for our Parade of Homes event at the end of September, we want to introduce you to the talented designers behind our 10 beautiful homes! Each designer chose distinctive selections to fit a certain theme, and we’re excited to give you a behind-the-scenes look into their unique thought process. This week, our team is happy to introduce you to Turner Hairr, who designed our Staycation and Belle Vue homes.

Before joining our team, Turner worked in customer service, furniture sales, and home staging, and is equally passionate about design, colors, aesthetics, and customer care. Outside of the office, she loves to spend time outdoors with her husband, daughter, and cocker spaniel, Easton, and relax on the beach at Topsail Island. Get to know a little bit more about this incredible designer and the unique touch she brought to each home!

What inspired you for your Staycation unique design theme?

Staycation

My inspiration behind this home was the beach and the feeling of being by the coast. (Not necessarily the NC coast, but maybe Cape Cod.) That’s where the name “Staycation” came from. I wanted you to walk inside the home and immediately feel like you were at the beach or on vacation. The shades of blue and natural wood tones help to bring this feeling to life.

What inspired you for your Belle Vue unique design theme?

Belle Vue

The inspiration behind this home was California Vineyards. I wanted to do a home that had a French Country feeling to it, but also put more of a modern twist on it. The name “Belle Vue” actually means “beautiful view” in French (how fitting)! The pops of matte black mixed with medium-toned woods and gray-greens are prominent in this home. I have vine-like wallpaper accents and simple trim features throughout to help pull this theme together!

What is your favorite part about designing homes featured in the Parade of Homes?

My favorite part about designing homes in the POH is being able to take risks and give the home a bit more personality. POH allows a designer to do things they may not do on a traditional inventory home. It’s so fun to create an idea on paper and then see it come to life months down the road, and have other people walk through and be able to see and love that theme you worked so hard to create.

Why do you love working in the Raleigh area?

Being in Raleigh is great for so many reasons. My favorite thing about it is the amount of opportunities to be outside. Whether it’s walking a trail, shopping, or grabbing dinner and a drink, there are so many ways to be outside and enjoy the city. It allows you to meet new people and enjoy new experiences.

We can’t wait for you to experience the singular details of the Staycation and Belle Vue homes at Homes By Dickerson’s Parade of Style during the 2020 Triangle Parade of Homes! For more information about this event, please contact us at 919-205-3404.

Use Your Loft Space as a Home Office

Use Your Loft Space as a Home Office

At Homes By Dickerson, we believe the spaces in your home should be able to adapt to your changing wants and needs — today, tomorrow, and down the line. This means that if you need a home office at this point in time, you deserve a flexible space that can double as the exact room you’re looking for. 

That’s where a spacious loft comes in! Our second-floor lofts offer the private, extra space you need in your daily routine, so you don’t have to use one of the other rooms in your home as a “makeshift” office. After all, your kitchen table shouldn’t have to double as a desk… Study Loft

Are you ready to set up shop? “Home office” will become “home getaway” in a loft designed just the way you like it. Below are a few of our favorite tips to turn this space into a private, productive work area:

Home Office Tips

Calming Scents: Pleasant scents have the incredible power to positively impact your mood. Whether you opt for candles, a diffuser, a fragrancer, fresh flowers, etc., incorporating an aroma that you love into your space will have you feeling refreshed and ready to take on the work day. 

Standing Desk: You don’t need an official standing desk to reap the benefits of standing more while you work. Place your computer on an elevated surface that you can access from where you stand, and try some “standing exercises,” including hamstring curls and desk pushups, or simply move your body however you like.

Soothing Colors: Just like scents, certain colors affect how you feel. Orange and yellow hues typically stimulate energy or excitement, whereas greens and blues might evoke calmness. If there’s a color that makes you feel your best, integrate it into your space through accessories and flowers (or even by painting the walls)!

Stylish Storage: It’s easy to let your workspace pile up, but utilizing functional storage options that you actually enjoy looking at will help you keep everything in order. From your desk to shelves to filing cabinets and everything in between, there are so many trendy and useful options for your personal work needs. 

Warm Lighting: Gone are the days of harsh office lighting… Whether you prefer a soothing, subtle glow of a desk lamp, a bright, energizing floor lamp, or simply natural sunlight, the aesthetic of your home office is entirely up to you.Flex Space

Personal Decor: What would any office be without a little personalization? From bookshelves and plants to wall art and everything in between, don’t be afraid to insert a little personality in your home office. After all, you’ll be spending a lot of time here, and you should feel as cozy (and inspired) as can be. 

Part of what makes one of our living spaces the Home of Your Life is its ability to function exactly the way you need to. If you want a roomy home office, we have a spacious loft that can be turned into the ideal work area. Because at Homes By Dickerson, nothing matters more than creating a home that fits your lifestyle.
