Ballard idea houseI was searching for some new model ideas on Pinterest yesterday and I came across the Ballard Designs Idea House…..look familiar?  Ding, ding, ding, you’re correct if you answered that Idea House and the Beaufort Cottage here in Arlington Place are one and the same!  I guess a few folks who really know their style stuff liked the floor plan as much as we did.  One of the things that so many people love about the Beaufort, is that it’s a cottage where traditional style meets modern function.  And that’s what I always think when I see the Ballard catalog, a mix of trendy yet somehow still timeless.  So what if the Idea House is a little fancier than we are here at AP, a bit cluttered for my taste personally but I suppose that’s the point of a show home when you’re in the furniture and knick-knack business.  I can tell you one thing that the Idea House doesn’t have….a $246,900 price tag!
