Defining A Master Bedroom

A master bedroom should always make a statement. It should differ from the other bedrooms in the home to feel more grand and luxurious. There are many ways to accomplish this, but one of the most impactful ways is with the bed itself.

The bed is the largest element in the room. Therefore, it’s what your eyes will be drawn to when you first walk in. If you have higher ceilings, a fun way to add drama to your abode is by selecting a bed with a tall headboard. A headboard with texture such as velvet, tufting, or a patterned fabric will capture an audience and make your master bedroom a stand out. This tall navy blue velvet tufted headboard certainly makes a statement!

Trumark Homes Announces Close Out of SL70 Community in Silver Lake, Los Angeles

Award-winning homebuilder helps fulfill Los Angeles’ growing demand for market rate housing through high density and smart design

LOS ANGELES, CALIF. (November 8, 2016) – Trumark Homes, a visionary, next generation homebuilder, announced today the complete close out of SL70, a new residential development on Glendale Boulevard in one of Los Angeles’ hippest neighborhoods. The 70-newly built standalone homes are helping to meet the incredible demand for housing in this core infill location from buyers that range from first time homeowners to downsizing baby boomers.

“The swift sell out of our SL70 development this year is a true testament to the popularity and appeal of emerging neighborhoods such as Silver Lake in Los Angeles,” said principal and CEO of Trumark Homes, Michael Maples. “We were able to get creative with this specific location on Glendale Boulevard by utilizing the City of Los Angeles’ Small Lot Ordinance allowing greater flexibility in lot sizes which enabled us to competitively price the homes ultimately resulting in an increased velocity of sales.”

Located on 2.34 acres on Glendale Boulevard just south of the 2 Freeway, SL70 features design-centric living, three floors of living space and rooftop terraces on most homes. Built on the former home to Hollywood’s first permanent movie studio, the residential community features a collection of two- and three-bedroom single-family homes with up to 1,800 square feet of living space, two car garages and no HOA dues. Each home is crafted with contemporary recessed lighting, oversized windows, premium kitchen appliances and Quartz countertops. The development is situated near various Silver Lake/Echo Park entertainment, shopping, dining and recreational locations and is a short drive from major employment centers in Downtown LA, Burbank and Studio City.

Trumark Homes collaborated with long-term equity partner, The Resmark Companies, to bring the award-winning property to life in the up-and-coming Silver Lake neighborhood.

“SL70 is another standout investment between Resmark and Trumark, and the project’s success reflects Trumark’s consistent ability to innovate and perform. We send all of the homeowners at SL70 our best wishes as they settle into their new homes,” said Robert N. Goodman, Chairman and CEO, The Resmark Companies.

SL70 was honored by the National Association of Home Builders with two Gold Awards for “Detached Community of the Year” and “Best Architectural Design of a Single-Family Home Under 2,000 Square Feet” in 2015. In addition, the development also won three Silver Awards for “Best Brochure”, “Best Interior Merchandising” and “Best Website for a Community”.

“We are thrilled that our SL70 community has received several important industry distinctions,” said Mark Higgins, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Trumark Homes. “We knew that the homeowners at SL70 would place particular emphasis on design and lifestyle and we were able to deliver an urban award-winning environment close to the heart of the Silver Lake neighborhood.”

Trumark Homes recently launched sales at its two newest residential neighborhoods in Southern California, Upcoast at Costa Mesa and Tribella in Santa Ana, and will introduce two additional residential neighborhoods in Chino Hills in 2017.

Dapper Drapery

You’ve probably got shades on your windows, right? That is unless you’re a morning person and enjoy the sun peeping through bright and early. But who doesn’t enjoy sleeping in on the weekends? While you may have shades, we say let’s add something more. Drapery!

Some may argue that drapery has little to no function if you already have blinds and is therefore pointless. But we beg to differ! The look of even a simple room can change dramatically just by the hanging of a curtain rod and some drapery panels. It adds texture, layers, color and that final touch. The icing on the cake, the cherry on top, if you will. Restoration Hardware and West Elm have an amazing selection of drapery and rods for all styles!

Trumark Homes Announces Swift Sellout of Timber Community in Newark, CA

Sellout of first new home development in Newark in more than a decade underscores the unprecedented demand in the market as Trumark prepares to bring more housing to the area

 NEWARK, CALIF. (November 7, 2016) Trumark Homes announced today the complete sellout of their award-winning Timber community featuring 164 single-family homes and townhomes within two neighborhoods Shade at Timber and Canopy at Timber in Newark, CA. Trumark Homes continues to expand their portfolio in Northern California to meet the growing demand for new housing supply within the thriving Tri-City area located just 40 minutes outside San Francisco.

“Our Timber community sold out well ahead of our anticipated timeframe representing the incredible amount of pent-up demand in Newark. Along the way, we’ve been encouraged by the positive reception we received from the community and the City of Newark,” said Mark Higgins, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Trumark Homes. “The diverse product offerings at Timber drew a mix of home buyers ranging from Silicon Valley professionals to first-time homebuyers and everyone in between.”

Designed by international award-winning firm KTGY Architecture + Planning, the Timber community embodies a fresh Craftsman architectural style and standout features including bright color pallets and lush landscaping. Shade at Timber presents three-story single-family floor plans ranging in size from 2,115 to 2,405 square feet with four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, as well as a two car attached garage. Canopy at Timber provides single-family attached townhouses ranging in size from 1,540 to 2,026 square feet with three or four bedrooms and either three or three-and-a-half bathrooms, depending on the plan, and a two car attached garage. Several of the plans within each neighborhood also offer a second floor deck.

“Timber represented a tremendous opportunity for us to bring much-needed housing to this emerging market in Alameda County,” said Gregg Nelson, Cofounder and Managing Member at Trumark Companies. “We are preparing to break ground on Glass Bay, our latest development in Newark, which will introduce 217 contemporary single-family homes. These two new communities will bring a distinct synergy between the commercial, residential and transit oriented components of Newark, creating desirable walking landscapes that homeowners are valuing more so today than ever before.”

Trumark teamed up with long-term equity partner The Resmark Companies to develop Timber, as well as three other new home communities in Los Angeles, San Jose and Milpitas, which have all sold out.

“Timber’s success demonstrates Trumark’s continuous insight into its target markets and ability to meet the desires and needs of homebuyers seeking quality homes. Resmark is proud of our longstanding partnership with Trumark, the communities that our investments create for California homeowners, and the results that they generate for our investors,” said Robert N. Goodman, CEO and Chairman of Resmark.

Trumark was honored with three 2016 Building Industry Association Bay Area Excellence in Home Building Awards for the Timber community, including “Community of the Year – Multi-Product”, “Best Signage” for creative, design and overall brand and “Best Architectural Design – Attached” for the architectural design innovation, overall exterior and interior architecture and design appeal of Canopy Plan 3. Trumark also received a gold award for “Best Brochure for a Community” at the National Association of Home Builders’ 2016 “The Nationals” awards.
