The Village at SouthLand Ridge in Americus, Georgia is planned as a gated community for independent living for those 55 and older. In preparation for the grand opening in June of 2008, developer Rick Davis contacted Minick Interiors to do the interior of their model home.
The idea was to design a space that offered comfort and ease for the active retirees that will be building homes here. Colors, textures and furniture groupings for the model home were chosen for their functional elegance.
“I went through everything with them,” Mark says, “The colors, the cabinets…There are two packages: the start-up package and the up-grade package. The model home shows the up-grade package on everything: the cabinets, the marble countertops, the insulation, the lighting. And we selected oil-rubbed bronze kitchen and bathroom fixtures for the model home.”
People have already expressed an interest in having Mark work with them on their homes. In fact, one prospective buyer said, “I could just buy the model home – and buy all of the furnishings that are in it – because it’s just perfect.”
Not only will there be special retail shops for residents in this beautifully landscaped community, but a 6,000 square foot club house is also being built with Mark consulting there as well on details of design.
