20 Feb 2019 Nationals
HRI started 2019 off strong at The NationalsSM 2019, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). Every year our team travels to IBS to attend the largest and most respected award show in the industry. This year we were once again overjoyed to take home multiple awards. HRI walked away with 7 silvers and 2 gold awards, an overwhelming accomplishment. We were especially honored to receive Best Interior Merchandising of a Model Priced $700,000-$850,000, and Best Design Center.
We couldn’t accomplish all that we do without our wonderful team, clients, and consultants. A special thank you to EDGEHomes and Infinity Home Collection for collaborating with us. We are continually grateful that we are able to design and work with brilliant builders and developers.
EDGEHome’s design center located in Draper, Utah was designed to appeal to the influx of technology giants and digital entrepreneurs migrating to the ‘Silicon Slopes.’ Our sleek but refreshingly simple design incorporated an upscale industrial style with natural elements that were complimented by clean lines, and muted tones. The center’s seamless design and exquisite exhibition resulted in a 30.2% increase in option sales and solidified EDGEHomes as the top homebuilder in the state.
Infinity Home Collection’s model home located in Castle Pines, Colorado was merchandised to an active and social adult bachelor. This space was created to portray a lifestyle of culture while allowing our buyer to entertain in style. We used white oak flooring, a color scheme accented by iron to create a clean yet masculine space. The furnishings were provocative and chosen specifically to compliment a lively and dynamic home buyer. Moreover, our partnership with Infinity home Collection and Woodley Architectural Group created another opportunity for a truly compelling product that we are incredibly proud of!
In addition to our gold awards, we took home 7 additional silver awards for our various merchandising and marketing efforts. This past year we worked diligently with Milesbrand’s creative energy to revamp our website and ended up amongst the top websites for an associate or supplier. HRI was also a top contender for Best Interior Merchandising for a Model Priced $700,000 to $850,000, Best Interior Merchandising for a Model Priced $850,000 to $1 Million, Best Merchandising for a Model Priced over $1 Million, and Best Interior of a Custom Home. We couldn’t have gotten this far without our partners Infinity Homes, Quadrant Home, Toll Brothers, and Woodley Architecture. We are very grateful to be considered winners amongst very talented individuals and teams.
These awards motivate us for our upcoming projects and remind us that hard work truly pays off. It is an honor to be recognized amongst the nation’s top talent. Here’s to another year of designing beautiful spaces! Cheers!
