At Richmond American, color is always on our minds. From paint to carpeting to tile, we’re continually coordinating color options for our homebuyers. When you offer as many fixture and finish selections as we do, you have to keep your options organized by hue. After all, the average homebuyer doesn’t have our design experience and eye for color matching.

The answer: Color Studios. When you visit a Home Gallery™, you’ll discover we’ve done the color homework for you. You don’t have to spend hours wondering if the tile you love will match the cabinetry you’re eyeing. All of our options are pre-sorted into Color Studios. All you have to do is find the Color Studio (aka color scheme) that resonates with your personality and style.

The great outdoors probably plays an important role in your life. We'd venture to guess you're a stop-and-smell-the-roses type of person. When you think about decorating your home, you may get inspired by the rich textures of a mountainside lodge. But that doesn't mean you don't like to keep things light and bright. Open those window shades and let in the sunshine. Natural lighting will be key to your home's overall look and feel.
Nantucket Taupe
