Model homes are commonplace, but Olivia Clarke Homes’ model in Celina Hills is unlike any other. Besides maximizing the space and trendy interior design, the outside is extraordinarily unique. Jennifer Johnson, Olivia Clarke Homes owner, boldly painted it black. “No one else is brave enough to do that,” says Johnson. “We’re in love with it.”
Olivia Clarke Homes’ robust sales in Celina made focusing on a model home impossible until now and Johnson is beyond excited. She loves both the exterior and interior. “It felt like home,” she notes.
The interior includes earth colors, natural wallpaper, and black and gold lighting. Johnson purposefully did not use every upgrade available. “I wanted people to not feel they had to spend every nickel and dime on upgrades,” she states. She wanted to prove you can get a gorgeous, comfortable home without paying thousands extra. The home feels and looks bigger having practical use of space. Being a woman-owned business helps with design, Johnson believes. The design is family-centric, “second nature to us,” remarks Johnson.
In a male-dominated industry, Johnson has been well-received. She is thrilled to break the proverbial glass ceiling. It is already leading the way for future female home builders with people contacting her daily asking how their daughter can follow in her footsteps. This, according to Jennifer Johnson, makes it all worthwhile.
