Model Home Crashing

Don't you love looking in other people's homes?  My mom and I stopped into a model home the other day in a neighborhood they are looking to purchase a home in.  There were definitely things I would have done differently, but that's just my opinion.  I've noticed that a lot of times model homes are overdone or a little over the top.  I guess maybe that's the intention?  Nonetheless, it was fun to look around and find some cute ideas.  Pardon the cell phone pictures, this was an impromptu visit so I didn't have my "real" camera with me.

Love the chairs in this dining room and the placement of the three wicker balls, the wall treatment is a little much for me.




I've always loved the look of these ceilings, adds so much to a room...




Nothing really special about this room, I think the walls would have been better left solid, minus the swirls.


and this one, I just wasn't feeling the spots, reminds me of a petri dish or something.  Overall the room had a nice beachy feel to it but I feel like that just ruined it.




I thought this was a pretty assortment of mirrors


loved this ceiling...











I loved the idea of this lantern as a bathroom light, especially in a nautical bathroom




So what do you think?  Do you like wandering in model homes for inspiration?

I love wandering through model homes... at the same time, they make me super jealous. Model homes don't have clutter! :)

All those swirls and spots made me dizzy! lol Absolutely not my style. But that baseball bedroom, so cute! I love looking at model homes, though most in my area are just ho-hum.

I love going into model homes. They are definitely over the top but so much fun to look at.

The swirls were definitely a bit much! It was so much fun, I'll definitely have to do it again!
