Holiday Home Tour at Kings' Chapel, Arrington
A Holiday Home Tour is scheduled December 4-6 and December 11-13 at Kings’ Chapel Community in Arrington. Featuring three decorated models and several additional homes available for sale will be at the heart of the event. Hours are from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday-Sunday.
“We could think of no better way to welcome in the holiday season than to invite the Nashville community to come and see our beautiful model homes,” says Katrina Roberts, principal broker for the development. Two new phases of the development featuring 65 lots have recently opened on site.

As the housing market continues its recovery, homeowners are increasingly seeking more square footage while simultaneously looking for more accessibility inside and outside of the home, according to new findings from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Home Design Trends Survey for the first quarter of 2015, which focuses specifically on overall home layout and the use of interior and exterior space.
All of the data can be accessed through AIA's newly redesigned home design trends survey infographic.
“An increase in home square footage with the rising popularity of accessible design concepts points to a population that is preparing to age-in-place, or, perhaps, is anticipating responsibility for caretaking of older relatives in the future,” says AIA Chief Economist Kermit Baker, PhD, Hon. AIA. “As homeowners prepare to stay in their current homes, investment in outdoor living spaces has also increased.”
Columbia and Spring Hill continue to grow and attract home decorators and designers with an array of offerings. To find these communities, take I-65 South and exit on Saturn Parkway/Hwy. 396. Columbia is south on Hwy. 31.
Q.I’m thrilled to be in the process of building a custom home that I have dreamed of for many years. I’ve had to make some style adjustments from my original plans, because styles have changed so much during the time I’ve been waiting and hoping. One of the most obvious changes is in wood finishes. It seems the dark cherry I planned is out. Can you give me some advice about kitchens? What is new? We plan to keep this home until we retire and downsize in about 12 years. How do I do something that is fashionable now and still desirable when we are ready to sell?—JWB
Nothing says “spring” quite like the emergence of daffodils! I love how their cheerful yellow faces banish the gloom of winter and announce the hopefulness of sunshine and warmer weather. Although it may be difficult to think spring when the holidays are right around the corner, now is the time to plant these harbingers of spring: tulips, daffodils, crocuses, hyacinth and grape hyacinths.
