    Wish you knew what the future holds? What trends in interior styling will get people talking? Get a sneak peek from Toll Brothers design experts on making your house a home.How you live and how you make your house

    your own speaks volumes about your standards and unique lifestyle. Nationally acclaimed for its innovative, yet timeless styling, Toll Brothers shares its vision for the future to enhance the dynamic lifestyles of its diverse family of buyers.Upscale buyers are embracing a

    new sense of value by maximizing their homes potential and interacting with their personal surroundings. Whether a multigenerational family, an entrepreneurial couple, active retirees, or young homeowners still raising a family, todays selective buyers are relinquishing standard room names and utilizing living spaces more

    creatively than ever, while making design versatility a priority. Whether in an urban, rural, or suburban setting,

    buyers are making conscientious choices about the design and livability of their ideal home. Does it enhance my lifestyle, accommodate the way I live, and function well in the long term?

    Continually striving to anticipate homeowners needs and desires, Toll Brothers also adapts to regional preferences for more formal and traditional living areas in the Northeast, and the penchant for easy living, single-story designs in Florida, Texas, Arizona, Nevada, and the desert region of California. According to Jed Gibson, President of

    Toll Architecture, Where large home sites are less common on the West Coast, buyers are maximizing living areas by choosing great rooms with expansive kitchens and large islands around which families can gather; whereas, multigenerational families are often drawn to secondary bedrooms and baths on a homes first floor.Adds Mary Cook, president of Mary

    Cook Associates, Inc., an interior architecture and design firm, Chicago, Illinois, More than ever before, people are looking to interior design

  • 6to enhance their lives. They want their spaces to elicit feelings, set moods, and literally perform for them. The latest trend isnt a color or a style. Its livability. That makes sticking to the fundamentals all the more important. The essentials are color and texture, scale and proportion, light and lighting, then layering them all properly to demonstrate that a well-thought-out objective will always be the key to successful interior design that lives well for the homeowner. Doris Pearlman, president of

    Possibilities for Design, Denver, Colorado further describes, Unexpected combinations are also being created through real and textured surfaces, combined with furniture and furnishings that are both new and fresh. From vibrant hues to bold and colorful floral

    patterns, to textures and modern designs with a splash of retro, how a house lives and feels is key to buying decisions nationwide.

    Helping to more clearly visualize the home of their dreams, Toll Brothers offers this exciting sampling of what buyers can expect to see now and in the near future: Smart, multifunctional spaces such as built-in kitchen banquettes that offer the perfect gathering spot for breakfast with the kids, an after-school hangout, or a casual study area

    Oversized kitchen islands that increase versatility with style, and serve as workspaces and centers for weekend gourmets, while offering added storage Bathrooms designed as luxurious and relaxing retreats with separate tub and shower spaces enhanced by multiple water delivery devices, including rain showers, handheld showers, and body-massaging showerheads; also showers with integrated speakers such as Kohlers Bluetooth enabled MoxieTM showerhead are attracting music lovers Specialty spaces that feature intimate pocket areas from nooks to

    alcoves, joined by transition points with custom built-ins Laundry rooms with useful islands and valuable storage for art and hobby supplies Areas where the owner can retreat: a media room, a wine room, or a basement equipped with a bar
