Plus, design strategies and tips to make any home beautiful

Sandra Pawliger, a designer at Room & Board in Atlanta, was chosen to bring the J5 model to life. Her primary goal was to show that modern can be warm and to inspire buyers to follow their own design dreams.

“I love the large open floor plans, the high ceilings and the floor to ceiling window walls,” says Sandra. “All of my decisions for each room were led by the desire to highlight these architectural details.”

Bartow Rainey, Director of Marketing at Brightstar | Compass, is handling the J5 Condos.

“We believe their customers were the right target market, so it was a great fit for those prospects to be able to experience Room & Board in our model,” says Bartow.

Sandra’s tips on decorating:

+ There are no rules. If you love something, you can make it work.

+  Concentrate on finding things that are beautiful to you, as well as practical and functional.

+ Don’t be afraid to mix color, texture, patterns, styles and materials. Mix old with new. Overall, it’s about balance.

+ Invest in some well-made pieces with a timeless aesthetic and you won’t need to buy furniture as often.
