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?
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?
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?
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.
