Designs for Beach Living: Josie Myers’ Take on Coastal Lifestyle
ST. AUGUSTINE BEACH, Fla. – Sitting in the new Generation Homes’ design center in the heart of St. Augustine Beach, designer Josie Myers is excited about working with the custom focused coastal home builder to help homeowners create their ideal home.
Over the past 20 years Myers has found a couple of key ingredients in meeting customer’s expectations while working on designs for new homes. Ingredients that align perfectly with Generation Homes’ philosophy for homeowner satisfaction.
“First is getting to know the homeowner. Understanding who they are and their lifestyle. By developing a relationship, we can better translate their vision and meet their needs,” Myers said. “We also understand that this is a big investment, a life choice. Our fun and relaxed approach helps them better convey their ideas and creativity.”
Today’s new home buyers are using technology to research architecture, design and even construction before selecting a builder. They come to Generation Homes guided by wisdom and concepts.
“Our goal is making it their home. We do accomplish that by listening to what they are saying,” Myers, owner of Ms. J Design, added. “They know best what is important to them.”
Hot topics when meeting and talking with homeowners includes functional kitchens, flooring that aesthetically pleasing while resilient for beach living, and windows with light that offers up great coastal views.
She also sees the movement to open space as beneficial in promoting togetherness as a family or suitable for social gatherings. This no walls trend overflows to outdoor living – especially along the coast – with outdoor kitchens and living areas.
“We take pride in being a personal builder. We listen to our owners’ dreams. Hear what they want in their new home and then work closely with them to find a way to create it,” said Generation Homes President Cora Johnston. “Josie brings a great perspective and ability to help us translate dreams into reality.”
Another important aspect of the Generation Homes’ process is working with homeowners within their budget.
“One of our niches as a custom builder is being able to really work with homeowners on their budget. There are alternatives in both design and construction that can meet parameters set by the customer,” Myers said.
Generation Homes works with today’s most savvy homeowners desiring coastal living at its most stylish with bright, airy floorplans, gourmet kitchens, great rooms and flexible spaces that add to its fresh appeal.
