The Art of Distinctive Homes

The Art of Distinctive Homes

It takes more than just superior craftsmanship to make a house a home. Distinctive Homes recently partnered with local artists to help decorate our newest model home in The Preserve at Harveston, and what a difference it made! Original art is not only beautiful, but also has the power to evoke emotions, tie a space together, and create a powerful focal point for any room. Meet the talented local artists and be sure to follow them for more great art and inspiration:
