25 Easy as ABC Ways to freshen your Colorado Springs Home

Posted by Campbell-Homes

This easy design tip is brought to you courtesy of Campbell Homes where your stylish and comfortable new Colorado Springs home is just a click away!

As summer comes into full swing, many of us are looking for ways to give our homes a quick, easy, and inexpensive facelift to make for fun summer entertaining.  With the creative ideas from Caroline Eberly and Kelli Brazier of Colorado Homes and Lifestyles, a handful of hot products and a few tips,  you can refresh your home in a single afternoon and just in time for snacks and libations on the patio!

1. Introduce a quick coat of paint in a bold color behind your built-in shelves or TV nook to add contrast and visual interest to your space. For a more conservative approach, go for a color that’s a few shades lighter or darker than your shelves.

2. If your dresser or cabinets are looking a little glum, give them a facelift with some new hardware. Can’t decide which style you want? Try mixing and matching.

3. When it comes to the kitchen, stainless steel is the new black. If you’ve got a little more spunk in you and want to add some real fun in your life, try sprucing up your kitchen and laundry room with fun-colored appliances and accessories—all of which come in practically every color of the rainbow.

4. Not yet ready for high-end art? Buy a collection of beautiful frames and hang them on your wall for a funky, modern display. Pottery Barn sells frame risers (that even come with design inspirations and directions) so you can overlap them for an interesting effect.

At Campbell Homes, we take your new Colorado Springs Home as important as you do!

Posted by Campbell-Homes

When you’re a locally owned home building company and you’ve been building new homes in Colorado Springs since 1965, you have to believe that our reputation Is as important to us as the new Colorado Springs home we would like to build for you and your family!

You’ll find that when you’re looking at new homes for sale in Colorado Springs, a lot of Colorado Springs home builders will talk about “quality construction” as if it were an amenity or a gesture deserving of a pat on the back. But at Campbell Homes we see it differently. At Campbell Homes, we take your new Colorado Springs Home as important as you do! To us, quality is simply doing the right thing every time, no matter what the project or the price point! It means designing the best plans, investing in the best building materials, and hiring the best craftsmen.

This simple business philosophy has earned Campbell Homes in Colorado Springs the title of “Builder of the Year” three times by the Housing and Building Association of Colorado Springs and lead to great letters like this one from one of our number one fans!

“When you grow up the son of a contractor like I did, you inherit an eye and an appreciation for craftsmanship. So when I saw the pristine jobsite and top notch building materials that went into Campbell Homes, I knew Campbell Homes was the homebuilder for my wife and me. Campbell Homes uses all the right name brands and back up their work with old-fashioned attention to detail.

Well, that’s the reason my wife and I bought our new Campbell Home in Colorado Springs in 2008. But why would we buy another one? The customer care department at Campbell Homes! I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to Campbell Homes for helping us deal with a problem that recently occurred out of warranty. I don’t know that there is another builder in the country that would have done what Campbell Homes did to help us out on a three-year-old home.

I was convinced three years ago when I bought our Campbell Home that I’d found the best homebuilder in Colorado Springs, and I’m even MORE convinced today.

We are so happy with our home, and so grateful to have found a homebuilder like Campbell Homes. Thank you SO much!

Scott F.
US Army – 24 years”

12 Tips for Holiday Decorating Success in your new Colorado Springs Home

Posted by Campbell-Homes
Experts say that holiday perfectionism is one of the main causes of holiday stress. We feel pressure to make sure everything is perfect from our homes and decorations to our dinners and parties. But whether it’s due to the impossible standards of holiday bliss sold to us by commercial marketing campaigns or simply our own perfectionism, holiday perfectionism is all too common and all too stressful!
During the month of December, Campbell Homes will bring you our best tips and ideas for holiday success without all the stress!  This week we focus our efforts on tips for holiday entertaining success.  And who better to consult than the entertaining and decorating experts at HGTV.
1. Forgo a traditional floral centerpiece on the dining table and instead create a charming holiday scene featuring gingerbread houses or ceramic Christmas village miniatures. Sprinkle faux snow along the center of the table, then place homes, stores, trees and people to create a focal point that will delight guests of all ages.
2. In lieu of purchasing expensive holiday themed china, glasses and silverware for a special get-together, consider renting it. No matter where you live, chances are there’s a party rental store near you. The prices are reasonable and by renting rather than buying you also avoid having to store the items year after year. 

If you own a new home in Colorado Springs, we suggest Bruno’s Party Time Rentals.
3. A simple way to give your holiday decorations a professionally decorated look is to stick to just two or three colors. Deciding on a palette before you shop makes the selection process quick and easy.  A great place in Colorado Springs to go for holiday decorating inspirations for your new Colorado Springs home is Rich Designs.
4. Flickering candlelight is beautiful, but if small children or pets will be part of the celebration substitute battery-powered votive and pillar candles for a warm glow without the worries. These can be purchased inexpensively at either Colorado Springs Costco location.
5. For a custom look that’s easy to achieve, add ornaments, wrapped candies, children’s toys or glittered greenery to a plain wreath. The decorating options are nearly endless and embellishing a wreath is a fun project to do with the kids.  A great location for purchasing supplies for your holiday wreath is Platte Floral. Not only is the selection amazing, the decorations are incredible and sure to inspire you to start decorating your home in Colorado Springs.
6. Adding a vintage element, such as homemade gingerbread men, hand-strung popcorn or a cranberry garland to your holiday decorations lends a sentimental, old-fashioned feel.  If you’re looking for a local bakery to provide your homemade gingerbread men, visit Othos Cookies and Brownies in the Chapel Hills Mall.
7. Always test Christmas lights before adding them to the tree. Nothing is more disappointing (and frustrating) than spending an afternoon carefully wrapping the tree with lights only to plug them in and discover that they don’t work.
8. Give your chandelier a simple holiday update by draping the arms with an evergreen garland and embellishing plain paper shades with an assortment of ribbon attached with hot glue.  We really like Colorado Villa Décor off of Hwy. 105 in Palmer Lake for your holiday greenery needs.
9. To cover an unusually shaped or extra-long table, simply drape it with fabric from the bolt. Measure the length of the table keeping in mind that 36 inches is equivalent to one yard. Add a few inches to each side to allow the fabric to puddle on the ground — no sewing required.
10. Add fragrance and an unexpected touch to evergreen garlands and the Christmas tree by placing fresh flowers among the greenery. To keep flowers fresh for days, first clip the ends then insert into water-filled bubble tubes, which are available at florist-supply stores.
11. A lit fireplace is beautiful but can quickly heat up a room filled with guests. To get the look without the warmth, instead fill the hearth with lit pillar candles.  New Homes in Colorado Springs come standard with gas fireplaces so use the lit pillar candles on your hearth or mantle for ambiance and holiday cheer.
12. Make your decorations shine by working strands of twinkling mini lights into garlands, topiaries and tablescapes. If you plan on using lights outdoors, check the packaging to make sure that both lights and any needed drop cords are rated safe for outdoor use.
