What Makes a Home Timeless?
How to create something that stands the test of time
This is a popular question among homeowners who want to create a lasting home and we don’t blame them. We believe in quality over quantity in all things, especially your home. The answer to us can be put in one simple word: authenticity. If a home is authentic to the people who live there, the surroundings, and to history - it's going to stand the test of time.
Authentic to the people who live there: knowing yourself and what you're drawn to (from travels, interests, heritage, etc.)
Authentic to the surroundings: Consider the elements and styles around you - both for your exterior and interior. (especially with paint colors, consider the natural landscape and what is next to you). There's a lot of flexibility on style - but to a point.
Ex. while the Tuscan style may not be timeless in a place like Utah, it always looks great in Italy.
Authentic to history: especially with remodels, consider the era of the architecture of your home. Be aware of the history of where your home is located. Every house tells a story. If the style of your home was never part of the history of your area, it won't feel timeless.
Ex. It works to build an East Coast style in Utah since many of the settlers were from the East.
Don’t forget, what you love and what is timeless don't always line up. If you make decisions rooted in authenticity, you will create something you love as a whole.
