In our current post-recession economy, home owners are downsizing to homes that are more reflective of their needs. Practical-sized jewel box homes are becoming especially popular with today’s buyers, from Millennials to empty-nesters, who have this less-is-more mentality. This session will cover how to design and finish a jewel box home with top quality materials, exquisite detailing and custom finishes with an emphasis on tailoring the home to the owner’s way of life for maximum elegance, harmony and function.
