Interview with the Designer: Bakerfield Cordova Model

At WaterGrass in Wesley Chapel, Florida, we are celebrating the grand opening of Phase II and several incredible new fully furnished and professionally decorated models. Since each model is so thoughtfully planned, we have decided to interview the builders and designers about the work behind each breathtaking design. The first model we will feature is the Cordova by Bakerfield Luxury Homes. We sat down with Arlene Mueller, Director of Marketing and Design, to learn more about this incredible home.


Bakerfield-Cordova-ExtFireplace-2-10-9-14-1024x768What is your favorite aspect of the model floor plan?
My favorite feature of Bakerfield Luxury Homes’ most current model in The Gardens is the all-encompassing feel of the indoor living space extending to the exterior living spaces. Simply walking up to the house one is greeted by beautiful brick and stone detail work as well as an outdoor courtyard with a fireplace. The outdoor sitting area is a unique extension to the warm feel of the double-door den with its rich woods and bricked ceiling. It sets the tone for the very handsome setting in this Tuscan-style home.

Cordova5What is your favorite room in the model?
As always, it’s very hard for me to choose which room is my favorite. Although this model design is quite large and its bedrooms are private to the flow of the house, it still feels open and integrated. The master suite has unique qualities that provide a sanctuary away from the rest of the house. The long hallway to the expansive bedroom/suite space, with access to the pool deck area, is beautiful and so inviting. Additionally, the mixture of tile and river rock used in the design of the master bath and spa almost provide an outdoor spa feel. It’s beautiful. Also, its own private access to the laundry is a brilliant time-saver.


Cordova-300x225What was the basis of your inspiration for the interior design?
My inspiration for the interior design was based on a lifestyle – casual, inviting and accessible. Using a warm, simple palette, I tried to create an interior that denoted casual living. Nothing fussy or over done. The great room has sturdy pieces – one could picture themselves relaxing with family in this huge but cozy room. The expansive kitchen with its view of the pergola and fireplace on the pool deck area is definitely the recipe for large entertainment gatherings.

Bakerfield-Cordova-Ext-10-9-14-300x225How did the architecture inspire your selections?
The Tuscan style provides the backdrop for this house, integrating textures and curves and a warm palette of woods and stones. The Tuscan arches, brick, stone, and plaster-treated exterior was the driving force for keeping this model inviting and warm. We also brought the interior living space outside, which makes this house all that much more grand. It starts at the front entry—the courtyard and fireplace offers a place to gather and sets the tone for the interior design

Cordova4Which accent pieces do you find most interesting?
My favorite piece in the house is the rare wood-carved screen in the great room highlighted by the stone entertainment wall. It enhances the height and angled walls of the room – it was a great find. Another element is the overall presence of the foyer. The heavy, arched front door flanked with a stunning brick treatment is a piece of art in itself. Add the stone niche with bench and custom artwork creates a uniquely dynamic entryway that sets the tone for the rest of the house.

Tell us more about the most distinct finish, selection, or option included in the model.
What I find captivating about this model is the second level entertainment/suite area. It provides an additional space for entertaining that is set away from the rest of the house. The balcony expanses the entire width of the upper level, providing the guest bedroom with an incredible view of the pool deck below. Bakerfield offers countless selections and options for new home construction – the latest in granites and stone surfaces, tiles, woods, and cabinetry, so there’s little problem creating a showplace home.

BakerfieldCordovaOutdoorKit-300x225Do you have any decorating tips for those looking to enhance their home?
The key thing to remember is that your living space should make you happy. If it’s difficult to find a starting point, begin with neutrals and build from there. Color can be integrated in the simplest ways – through pillows and textures that can be edited or through staple elements like curtains, paint, tile, and furniture. Decide on a focal piece and build from there. Whether it’s gorgeous granite in the kitchen, a keepsake piece of furniture, or even a meaningful artwork – find a palette and style to build upon based on a focal piece and your space will come together.

What is your decorating background?
I have a Bachelor of Fine and Professional Arts from Kent State University and have worked in the advertising and marketing/graphic design arena for over 25 years. Over time, my training in those areas has transitioned to interiors. I’ve had the added benefit and experiences of relocating many times. Building several new homes challenged my creativity for space, convenience, practicality and aesthetics. In addition, my two passions are photography and reviving old furniture, so it’s a mixture of these interests and experiences that have now led me to interior design.
