This really is a wonderful area. From the close proximity of restaurants, supermarkets, and other super-stores to the beautiful golf course and relaxing pool environment (not to mention the peace and quiet), we have fallen in love with The Hammocks at Timber Banks!

- “The food. It’s always about the food. The more fried – the better! (But please don’t tell my wife I said that…)”
- “I usually go for the music. The free shows are great this year.”
- “I like the rides --a lot. Sometimes my dad has to go with me because my brother chickens out.”
- “The food!”
- “The butter and cheese sculptures are pretty cool.”
- “We try to go to at least 2 or 3 concerts each year. The tickets are free or a really good price. Oh, and I always look forward to the different food.”
- “Our kids love the petting zoo and learning about the animals. Animal facts are pretty much all we hear for weeks after.”

Welcome back for Part Two of how to decorate your apartment! We discuss 3 more styles that you can choose from when making your apartment your own.
The rich colors and bold statements in Europe’s Mediterranean region have grown to be more and more popular over the last few years. This style is influenced by many different cultures from Spain, Greece and Italy to name a few. Wrought iron, patterned tiles, stucco walls and bright fabrics with various textures help to bring this whole look together. You could also take a more earthy approach with this look by including accents from the sea, sky and land around you. Instead of using the soft blue of the sky, try stepping it up a notch with a vibrant teal from the ocean. Red, orange and yellow prove to be a popular color combination when it comes to this design style. Mediterranean design is all about taking risks and mixing textures, colors and mediums.
If you love the outdoors and would like to bring the outside in, then rustic design could suite your home very well. Bring nature into your home by incorporating elements from the outdoors. Include style from the sky, land, sea and plants. The use of natural woods is almost always a necessary part in rustic design. Adding a stone backsplash to your kitchen or a slate tiled floor could help bring the rock element into your design. Think log cabin or the mountain terrain when decorating.
Eclectic spaces mix many different kinds of styles and allow you to make your home as unique as you are. The crazier the mix, the more eclectic your style. Bring in family heirlooms, items you found on your travels, and other personal items to make your space as unique as possible. Eclectic spaces are often found to be interesting while remaining cozy and comfortable.

Decorating doesn’t have to be as scary as you think. Begin by selecting the style that best suites you and work your way from there. Use this guide to help you with all of your decorating endeavors.
Contemporary is really a fancy name for a combination of many popular decorating styles. Most contemporary looks consist of clean, sleek lines, simple accents, and neutral colors with a few bold accents. Most apartments that feature this style have an open, spacious layout so that it is easier to blend each area of the home together. You may choose to use ultra dark wood or very light wood depending on the feel you are going for. You want your home to feel clean, airy, and simple yet sophisticated when you are finished with your design. Try finding furniture with a neutral color scheme and accessorize with accents of color. This way you can change your design as often as you wish without breaking the bank. Always take the “less is more” approach with contemporary design.
If feeling cozy, comfortable and relaxed in your home then cottage design may be for you. This design style allows you to really express your personality and allows your guests to feel warm and welcomed in your home. You may want to consider drawing inspiration from the beach, country fields, or other parts of the natural landscape that surrounds you. Cottage design is often inspired by nature due to the fact that nature has many calming, relaxing sceneries to offer. Colors that are often used in cottage style design include soft blues, greens, yellows and whites. If you want your home to be cohesive yet stylish while still having a “lived in” look then cottage design should suite you well.
While trends come and go, traditional design always remains the most popular style for homes across America. Traditional design is influenced by English and French design and usually exudes elegance, warmth and classical elements. Homes in the 18th and 19th century began using this style to help determine social classes within the household. Don’t let that fool you though, traditional design may look expensive, but can be pulled off for a lot less than you would think.
