The Estates Collection at the Preserve at Providence
Do you ever wonder just how a designer takes an idea for a home and brings it to life? Today we’re sharing an in-depth Q&A with award-winning designer Doris Pearlman of Possibilities for Design, as she takes us through the design process for the Estates Collection at the Preserve at Providence. Follow along to see how Doris and her team intentionally brought color, lighting, composition, texture and more details together to create a stunning, flawless design.
Progress Lighting: What was your vision for the Estates Collection at the Preserve at Providence?
Doris Pearlman: The vision that was used at the Estates Collection at the Preserve at Providence features an Urban Farmhouse appeal, complimented by a neutral color palette. It’s important to note that the absence of any color was key to this look.

The accents came from the various textures throughout the house. For example, the stone walls, rustic beams and wood flooring in the living room, combined with the elegant, dual Nisse chandeliers in the dining room created unexpected combinations. This amplified the interest, excitement and memory points making potential homebuyers stop in awe.

Progress Lighting: Why is the entryway one of the most important rooms of a home?
Doris Pearlman: It’s important to grab the viewer’s attention within seconds of walking into a model – and the entryway achieves just that by featuring three, staggering Equinox chandeliers.
Progress Lighting: How did you create continuity between spaces (specifically the living room, the dining room, and the kitchen)?
Doris Pearlman: Continuing into the kitchen, you’ll find the same combinations of the dining and living room echoed in this space.
Trestle pendants shown.
A rustic wood ceiling accentuated the architecture of the kitchen, combined with multiple Trestle pendants that are industrial in nature. The urban farmhouse appeal comes to life through the combination of rustic textures and traditional white cabinets.

Progress Lighting: How did you use your vision in the master bedroom?
Doris Pearlman: The theme continues into the master bedroom with an elegant, neutral palette and wood flooring. The eye is immediately drawn upward by the dark trim detail in the accent tray, illuminated by the Nisse chandelier.
