Top Interior Design Trends of 2021

Posted by: Sherry Davidson in News, Tips
 

While in quarantine, you’ve likely grown an appreciation and love for the interior design of your home out of a renewed respect for your space. To satisfy the newfound designer in you, enjoy a roundup of the latest interior design trends of 2021! 

Wallpaper

In recent years, wallpaper has become increasingly popular and it looks like wallpaper has made its official comeback in 2021 in a new and exciting way! Wallpaper can be used to create a statement wall, add a pop of color, and even make a bold statement when used on the ceiling. Peel-and-stick wallpaper has led the charge in the wallpaper comeback because of how easy it is to remove and change, especially for renters or homeowners with evolving tastes. 

House Plants

Bridge the gap from outdoor to indoor living with fresh, luscious greenery. Plants not only bring natural beauty to a home, but have the added benefit of purifying the air and improving your mood. Some of our favorite low maintenance house plants include Bird’s Nest Fern, Bromeliad, and, the nearly impossible to kill, Snake Plant! 

Multifunctional Spaces

This trend is inevitably a side effect of the quarantine. With more people working from home and schools going virtual, rooms were quickly serving multiple purposes as everyone adapted to quarantined life. However, these spaces don’t have to sacrifice style. Maintaining a seamless flair throughout the room will not only unify the space, but make it more enjoyable and productive to spend time in. 

Textured Walls

Adding texture to your walls is the perfect accent to any space that needs a little boost. Textured walls bring dimension and mood to a space. With the addition of textured walls, rooms will appear larger as eyes will be drawn to the outer edge of the room. Trending textured wall applications include marble slabs, padded velvet walls and plastered walls.

Natural Elements

Organic materials and natural wood hues are making a statement in 2021. From earthy tones, terracotta vases, marble, and wicker there is no shortage of options to add natural mediums to your decor. The earthy appeal is just another way to add texture to your home especially if you have upholstered furniture. Adding natural accessories can help make your home more welcoming and complete. 

Sustainable Design

This year, interior design will take a more conscious approach than ever. While some will shop at antique and thrift shops for unique pieces to bring back back to life, others will research to find designers whose production is ethical and sustainable. Choosing decor made from wood, bamboo, cork and recycled metals are easy ways to make an impact on the environment.

The Vision of World Golf Village

Posted by: Sherry Davidson in News
 

Behind anything great, you find a great story. World Golf Village is no exception. In the 1980s, St. Johns County had less than 100,000 residents. It was inevitable that the area would blossom with the right vision and execution. Jim Davidson, President of Davidson Development, was the man for the job. 

Jim could see the pieces of the World Golf Village puzzle come together. “Not only could Jim see the Jacksonville market heading south and knew this was the perfect area between Jacksonville and St. Augustine, but he could see the pine trees becoming the development he envisioned,” shared Davidson Realty President and Jim’s wife, Sherry Davidson. “Jim saw beyond the golf courses, lakes, and homes and saw people walking their dogs and pushing their children in strollers on the sidewalks.” 

Jim was persistent in bringing World Golf Village to life. He met regularly with land planners, engineers, attorney’s and an environmental team to make sure the pieces came together as he planned. Although many along the way didn’t believe, Jim never doubted he could get the job done right. Once the World Golf Village developer financed a new interchange on Interstate 95, the development became extremely attractive to commuters, as World Golf Village was one of only a few options for buyers in St. Johns County who worked in Jacksonville. 

The pieces continued to come together after Jim brought the PGA TOUR and other golf organizations on board to build the World Golf Hall of Fame. From there, Jim assembled various partners for the golf courses, the hotel, and the retail stores to further bring attraction to the area. World Golf Village turned out to be exactly what people were looking for, including the Davidsons. Jim and Sherry Davidson were one of the first homeowners in World Golf Village and still live in World Golf Village to this day. 

While building World Golf Village, the Davidsons worked hard to protect the environment to ensure the community maintained its natural beauty. More than 2,775 acres, nearly half of the project site, was set aside for preservation. These efforts were recognized by the Florida Association of Realtors ®  when the Davidsons received the ENVY award in 2002. The ENVY award honor is given to developments that preserve Florida’s natural quality of life. 

The infrastructure added by World Golf Village paved the way for the development of other communities in the area like The Hutson Companies’ SilverLeaf, which will have 10,700 homesites, 2,650,000 square feet of mixed-use commercial space, and more than 3,500 acres of conservation land. It is clear that World Golf Village blazed the trail. 

The master planned community has prospered over the last 23 years and is regarded as one of the most desired communities on the First Coast. With more than 6,000 homes and more than 15,000 residents, World Golf Village provides a place to live that is picture perfect. Whether you are a golf lover eager to take advantage of the award winning golf courses or a family wanting to give their children the opportunity to attend fantastic public schools or interested in enjoying an active adult community, you have a home in World Golf Village.

World Golf Village has a vibrant history to be proud of and a legacy to look forward to, as it continues to be a highly sought-after area. No one knows World Golf Village better than Davidson Realty.

You are looking for a new home – and you are looking in all the right neighborhoods. Our location, on Florida’s First Coast, should satisfy your expectations and suit your most every need.

As you preview homes, you will be best rewarded if you consider curbs, commons and community along with the attention you focus on curtains, countertops and cupboards. What I mean is – the layout, character, atmosphere and overall environment of a neighborhood is equally as important as the fixtures, features, style and condition of the home you will ultimately choose. Of course, the neighborhood amenities and its proximity to schools, shops, services, entertainment, work and play is also tremendously important.
