“Home” is the kindest word in the world, it’s where the heart is and there is no place like it.  How you decorate your home reflects your unique personality and directly impacts how you feel when you “come home.”  We all know that to take care of the body of the home, we do annual maintenance.  But to take care of the spirit of the home, try some annual decor maintenance.  A little creative room refresh will lift the energy of the space and change the way you experience it.  Here are four simple steps you can take, that won’t break the bank.

1. Start Fresh

Take the time to remove everything from the desired room including: furniture, décor, rugs and wall hangings.  Then do a thorough cleansing including base boards, windows and even door frames.  Before you move anything back into the room, clean each item thoroughly.  If any items are damaged or broken, repair them or consider discarding them. Interesting to note, cleansing ceremonies have been used for thousands of years as a symbolic way to cleanse a space and to make room for new things to come – have fun with it.

2. Create Balance

Before placing any items back into the room, consider all possible configurations. To make this process easier, take measurements and sketch the options.  All you need is a measuring tape and some graph paper, or if you want to upgrade your sketch, consider an online sketch service.  As you are considering the various placements, research Feng Shui and learn about this ancient practice of balancing the flow of energy in your home to create harmony and prosperity.

3. New Light

Of all things that can be introduced into a space, a new lighting source will give you the biggest bang for your buck.  A new light will not only introduce a new aesthetic, but also offer a new way of looking at old things.  Whether you do a new overhead light or floor lamp, pick one that makes a statement.  Based on your budget you can find value and luxury options from markets around your area.

4. Personal Art

If buying new artwork is not in your budget, just “go shopping” around your home to find an item that can be switched.  Another inexpensive (and fun) activity is to introduce new arrangements and uses of your personal photos, for a unique way to combine 1000 little images to create one large one.

Whichever steps you decide to take to refresh your home, be creative and check out the decorating articles on Lennar’s Open Door Blog for a regular stream of unique ideas. There is truly, no place like home.

There’s grown adults with black patches placed over one eye and red bandanas around their heads.  Rainbow-colored streamers are draped along the masts of a mysterious pirate ship anchored in the middle of Tampa’s bay. This could only mean one thing– an invasion is upon us! It’s Gasparilla season.

You’ve likely heard of the Gasparilla Pirate Festival. This pirate-style Mardi Gras is the third largest parade in the United States.  But, do you know the history, legend, and lore of its origins?

The story begins with the legendary Spanish pirate Jose Gaspar, also known as Gasparilla. Gasparilla, a menacing and mystical character, ravaged the west coast of Florida in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Legend states that when he died he left behind an untold treasure somewhere along the coast of Florida. While that treasure was never found we continue to celebrate his legacy over a hundred years later with the annual Gasparilla Pirate Festival.

Every year, on the last Saturday of January, Tampa hosts over 300,000 pirates thirsty for treasure, beads, rum and the keys to the city. Eager mateys flock to the famous Bayshore Boulevard and eagerly jump and scream for beads as cannons boom and the elaborate floats slowly move into downtown. Here, they meet the mayor and demand the keys to the city.

When the pirates come, will you be ready?

Here’s how to prepare for the invasion of a lifetime:

Gasparilla season is all about community, festivities, and having fun. The best part is that the fun doesn’t stop at the close of the Gasparilla Pirate Parade! The Gasparilla season runs all the way to early March and features a Gasparilla Children’s Parade, one week before the main parade, and the Sant’Yago Illuminated Knight Parade on Saturday, February 10th. Other Gasparilla monikered events include the Gasparilla Film Festival, the Gasparilla Festival of the Arts, the Gasparilla Distance Classic, and the Gasparilla Music Festival.


Buying a new home can be a daunting decision. Especially, with all the options that are available to home buyers. One big choice is purchasing a new construction home. Today, we are going to break down the advantages of buying a new construction home.

Make it Your Own

One of the major advantages of new construction homes is that you can chose options that match your needs and taste. Choose from a selection of flooring colors, tile selections, and countertops. In some cases, you can even upgrade certain features of your home such as turning a dining room into a study or adding an additional bedroom.

Piece of Mind

With new construction your home is brand new. You are the first to ever live in the home. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about the fixtures or appliances being on their last leg. You even have the assurance that if something happens to be faulty, then you can have it covered under the manufacturer or new homeowners’ warranty.

Modern Conveniences

Along with a comfortable, new home you will also receive the latest in home technology and energy efficient appliances. Lennar is proud to be offer Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Design which includes state of the art home automation devices.

Move-In Ready

Moving is expensive so you definitely don’t want the added expense of getting your home upgraded once you move-in. With new construction, you do not have to worry about any unknown repairs or upgrading old styles once you’ve moved into the home. Your home is move-in ready from day one!

Does a new construction home sound like it be the right decision for you?  Then schedule your visit today to take a tour of a Lennar Nashville community!
