Here at Shaddock Homes we try our best to build in the best areas around Dallas and we’re excited for some commercial progress near several of our communities. (Click here to see them all) The newest addition to Plano is The District in The Shops at Willow Bend which is going to feature five fabulous new restaurants. These new restaurants host a variety of types of food to appeal to every crowd!

The first restaurant to join The District is Knife, the second location of celebrity chef John Tesar. When dining at Knife you’ll find a variety of menu options such as Texas-raised steaks along with a variety of seafood offerings and even vegetarian meals. In addition to the restaurant, Knife offers a butcher shop for guests to take home any cut of meat featured in the restaurant along with Knife Burgers to-go.

Across from Knife you’ll find Mexican Bar Co. Cocina with Mexican offerings cooked on wood and coal-burning grills, a concept from Chef Patricio Sandoval. You’ll find tacos on handmade corn tortillas along with fresh ceviche, guacamoles and salsas. There’s also a full bar with a variety of Mexican cocktails focusing mostly on tequila and mezcal. Mexican Bar Co. Cocina also has a walk-up window with tacos and smaller menu items to-go.

Next to the new main entrance of the shopping center you’ll locate Terra Mediterranean, owned by brothers Jalal Chanaa and Adam Shanaa. Terra Mediterranean features a lunch buffet packed with healthy dishes served hot from the pan or grill. The diner menu has specialty items like lamp chops and oven-roasted trout. A huge perk to this new location is that Terra Mediterranean will have a second-floor patio overlooking the plaza.

Unlike the former restaurants, you’ll find more casual fair in Whistle Britches, the second location of Chef Omar Flores. Guests can dine on comfort food like fried chicken sandwiches, fresh buttermilk biscuits and southern-style sides.

And to top off the dining experiences at The District you can find an outpost of a popular Dallas coffee shop and restaurant, Ascension Annex. This location will offer specialty coffee drinks, wine and beer, and light food options. While the permanent shop is being built, you can currently grab some Ascension Annex coffee at a pop-up shop inside the shopping center.

Along with these restaurants, you’ll be able to look forward to various entertainment coming to The District as well. The Crayola Experience is already open, but Cinepolis movie theater is in the process of being built. There will also be Equinox, an upscale fitness club, and a seven-story office building. Look out for events in this area too! For the month of October, The District is hosting free concerts every Friday and Saturday from 7-9pm. You’ll be able to enjoy a wide variety of local bands and some great cover bands. Jump on over to Visit Plano here for the line-up and all the details.

Home Trends: Decorating for Fall

Categories: Design Trends, Shaddock Homes, Uncategorized | Posted: October 11, 2018 | Comments Off on Home Trends: Decorating for Fall

The weather is finally cooling down and we’re gearing up for the cooler months ahead! One of the greatest things about fall is that it’s the kick-off of the holiday season and we’re all about celebrating with festive décor. We’ve complied a list of some of our favorite design trends and tips to update your home for this season.

Homemade Paper Banners
One trend we’re really excited about is paper banners. You can create paper banners of leaves, bats or anything your heart desires and also make it a fun family activity. You can use foil paper, patterned paper or even layer your banners in so many ways. This craft costs very little to make and is easy to swap out as often as you like. We personally love a classic fall toned leaf banner.

Unconventional Pumpkins
We know that pumpkins have always been a Halloween staple, but we’re seeing more and more of untraditional colors of pumpkins for décor. While we love the classic orange pumpkins, we think mixing it up and decorating your home with muted toned pumpkins gives a beautiful farmhouse feel while still being festive. We are loving this sage and cream collection from SF Girl. The beauty of this trend is that they’ll carry over décor-wise for after Halloween!

Wall Hangings
One of the bigger trends over the last few years has been yarn wall hangings. There have been simple ones, macramé and even intense woven ones. But one fun idea is to create one you can change out all year long based on the season. We love this one featured on the abeautifulmess blog. It’s a simple touch that updates your room from summer to fall.

Gold Accents
When in doubt about your fall décor you can always play it safe by acquiring gold accent pieces! Gold is something you can have in your home year around, but it’s particularly appropriate around the fall through the new year. It adds warmth to your home and you can utilize gold accents in so many ways! We love this combination of gold, candles and earthy elements.

Velvet
Cozy accents are definitely a must at this time of year. Stock up on blankets you can display, new throw pillows and candles but also consider adding velvet into your cozy mix. Velvet has been gaining popularity again and it’s made its way into home décor. Pick up some velvet pillows in a bold fall color. Or if you’re ready for some major décor changes maybe pick out a velvet furniture piece! The options are endless.

Wreath Update
Give your guests a seasonal style greeting with a wreath update! Wreaths are timeless pieces themselves with a wide variety of ways to style them. You can go for seasonal colors, holiday specific or even get a little wacky. It’s all up to you and how you want to impress your guests. We personally love this wreath one of our homebuyers has displayed for this season.
