Color Your World

Are you blue? How about fire-engine red? Are your days filled with school bus yellow? Perhaps they should be. The colors of your walls are more than decoration; they can impact your mood. Painting your walls is an easy way to update the look and feel of any room. By looking at the moods different colors create, you can choose a paint color that please your eyes and your mind. To choose a paint color, start with the purpose of the room. Will it be used as a study or a room to relax with your friends? Because every color creates a different mood, after identifying what mood you want to create, the color choice will follow.

Colors and The Moods They Create:

If you need to relax, blue will do the trick, especially if painted on large walls. Anyone with a stressful job looking for a peaceful, serene home space would do well to choose blue.
Good For: study, family room

Get your creative juices going! This is a great color if you're looking to generate inspiration or want to keep young minds active. An equally good choice for playrooms and boardrooms, orange is a color for rooms where thought is the first priority.
Good for: office, children's room

If you like to entertain and want a more festive feel, then yellow is for you. Add yellow to any room that needs a jolt of energy. Not only is it welcoming and inviting, it's also the most stimulating color. 
Good for: kitchen, bathroom, dining room, family room

A bold choice, and red is the color most often associated with passion and desire. Because of its strong shade, red is typically reserved for bedrooms, but it can also be used in any room that you'd like to add energy. Try a light red (pink) and add accents of darker red in carpeting or other decor. 
Good for: bedroom

Neutral Colors 
Sometimes, you want a room to be a blank slate for those who walk in to imagine their own possibilities, such as when selling your home. In this case, neutral colors such as white, tan, or cream with subtle accents work best. These colors will make your home feel well cared for without leaving too much of your own personality.

Consistency vs. Variety
It’s okay to change color from room to room if that’s your style. The key is to think about how you want to feel when you’re at home with your family and friends.  If you decide your style is having a variety of colors, make sure to find a fabric or artwork to help pull it all together. This will allow your home to feel cohesive.  A home that’s painted with this thought in mind, gives an impression of a well thought out design and smooth transitions. The key is to choosing a color is to decide what you want the feel of the room to be. Do you want a relaxing study or one that stimulates your thoughts?

Whether you’re looking to make a change with just your paint or a new home, feel free to visit the Jeff Benton Homes Design Studio for more paint and design tips in building your new home.

The End of an Era: New Hampton Cove Homes Almost Gone!

Hampton Cove is RUNNING OUT of NEW HOMES!!! The last single family home community in Hampton Cove, Cobblestone Cove, has been one of Jeff Benton Homes most successful and beautiful communities and we are so sad that it is coming to a close. It will be difficult to duplicate the opportunity, the lifestyle, and the atmosphere.

Cobblestone Cove
During the time
Jeff Benton Homes has been building in Cobblestone Cove we have added 167 new homeowners to our family, and have enjoyed working for each one. Today we are looking for 4 more to finish out this great community and to finish out the communities of Hampton Cove! It is a great time to purchase for a multitude of reasons.

A Special Offer
As a special thank you to our final 4 newest family members that are lucky enough to grab one of the last homes left we are excited to pay your One Year Membership to Robert Trent Jones Golf, One Year Membership to the Hampton House and we will also pay your first year of Home Owners Association Dues.

Available Homes
One of the homes that are available is our Model Home. Once sold, this home can close as early as October! We have had so many people LOVE the Model Home in Cobblestone Cove over the years and now someone is going to have the opportunity to call it home.

The Time to Buy Is Now!
Interest rates, as you know, are at an al
l time low, and a point or so on your interest rate can keep a monthly investment the same for a whole lot more house! I have often sat with customers that are astonished by how much more house they can own with a little help from the mortgage company! Let’s crunch some numbers!

Visit Cobblestone Cove
If those are not enough reasons for you, how about this one… “There’s no time like the present to improve your life!” Hope you will come see me in the Cobblestone Cove model home before the opportunity is gone!

With convenient access to Redstone Arsenal, Jeff Benton communities are ideal for BRAC relocation families making the transition to North Alabama.

Our floor plans make a difference. We have one- and two-story options that include gorgeous kitchens with adjoining morning rooms and gathering rooms, peaceful master retreats that feature private baths and walk-in closets, and so many lush details you won’t believe your eyes!

And while you’ll absolutely look forward to spending lots of time in your Jeff Benton home, you’re also only minutes away from shopping, dining and entertainment. If you like boating, fishing or water sports, many of our neighborhoods are minutes from the water! Visit Ditto Landing – just minutes from the beautiful Renaissance Community.

Living in a Jeff Benton Home is Just Better. Welcome all Military families!

Spring Is In The Air At Renaissance!

I am enjoying seeing homeowners working in their flower beds at our Renaissance community. The warmer weather has been welcomed, encouraging neighbors to walk their dogs and visit on the sidewalks. I know that I will soon see flowers sprouting up and everything turning green.

Renaissance, a community located near Gate 3, is nestled off of Memorial Parkway, letting you enjoy a truly tranquil home. If you like dining out and shopping, you will love south Huntsville. For a personal tour of the model home and the community, please visit Renaissance today!
