The Madison, the third single Tamarack Model Home at Poole Creek in Stittsville, is undeniably the most eclectic in it’s design. Sonya and I decided that each model home would have a designated $$$ value and a unique personality. The smallest of the three singles, the Madison, had a $ value assigned which meant there were more standard finishes chosen. Thankfully Tamarack has a wide selection of standard finishes, but the unique and eclectic design elements woud be achieved with colour, fabric, furniture, lighting and accessory selections. We decided this home would be edgy with a blue, orange and white colour scheme.

A FEW CHANGES
To create more efficient traffic flow in the kitchen, we took out the peninsula with the raised counter and added an island with a flush counter. We also removed the cumbersome pantry wall dividing the kitchen and great room. Wine cubbies, corner display cabinet and ceiling to counter glass cabinets were incorporated into our design. The island counter was dressed in solid walnut, while the perimeter counters were upgraded with quartz.
The entire process for choosing every single design and decor element for each model home began with the finishes selection. Below are the final Madison kitchen finishes. All other finishes throughout the model where chosen to coordinate with these. The Shaker white cabinets, Mirage, cream/white subway tiles and the Mirage Savanna Maple floor are standard finishes. The Snowden White Quartz and Walnut Butcher block are upgrades. We felt it was important to show potential Tamarack clients that combining mostly standard finishes with a few strategic upgrade finishes will yield a fabulous end result without breaking the bank.
FURNITURE, ACCESSORY AND COLOUR INSPIRATION
As mentioned above, The Madison was dressed in an up to date white, orange and blue palette. Pattern, texture and colour with a strong dose of natural wood and warm finishes ensured that The Madison’s spacious and open floor plan would have comfy, family appeal. Below are the original mood boards depicting the look we were going for.
