The Definition of Modern Living

The core philosophy driving The City Collection’s elegant aesthetics is to craft homes that are easy to care for without compromising quality architectural details.

Choose from a Pair of Desirable Locations

Houses for sale in Missouri City, TX at Avalon at Sienna and Sugar Land, Texas homes at Imperial are situated in beautiful master planned communities southwest of Houston.

Both locations offer proximity to major highways and are premier destinations to live, work and play.

Let’s delve deeper into what makes each location special.

The Cultural Diversity of Missouri City

Named “the most ethnically diverse county in America,” by the New York Times, Fort Bend County offers a unique blend of cultures that showcases a different vision for the future of Texas.

Approximately one-third of the county’s residents were born outside of the United States and the demographics of the region are so diverse, you can find people with roots from all over the world.

From food to music to art and a dynamic think-tank of cross-cultural idea sharing, Missouri City, TX offers the same breadth of diversity found in giant cities without all the stresses that come with life in a dense urban environment.

Missouri City is home to big-time celebrities, too. Singer, songwriter and record producer Travis Scott is from Missouri City and last year he was ceremoniously handed the keys to the city. During his acceptance speech he said, “This is better than any award show I’ve ever been to. My only job is just to inspire kids to be the best they can be, to reach their ultimate height.”

Hop on the Sugar Land Train

Be within all your favorites within 10 minutes when you make the move to the CIty Collection

Sugar Land is one of the fasted-growing cities in Texas and one of the most-affluent, too. With rapid population growth and a rise in employment opportunities to match, the city is a fantastic base for settling in for a bright future.

While Sugar Land is of course known as the headquarters for the famed Imperial Sugar Company, a large percentage of the city’s residents are educated white collar employees working in Houston’s energy sector. Schlumberger, a major oil services enterprise relocated its offices to Sugar Land in 1995 and many other large businesses have followed suit. In fact, Outlook Magazine and Texas Business both named Sugar Land as one of the top ten cities in Texas for relocating or growing a business.

But it’s not all work and no play in Sugar Land. The town loves their minor-league baseball team, the Sugar Land Skeeters, and a variety of events are held annually at Constellation Field.

  • Sugar Land Skeeters at Constellation Field | 1 Stadium Drive, Sugar Land | 281.207.9128

A massive development project called the Imperial Market is underway. When open, the complex will add an additional urban facet to this growing Houston suburb.

Delicious Eats and More

We asked residents of both City Collection communities to share some of their favorite neighborhood restaurants and attractions. Missouri City and Sugar Land are just a few miles apart so homeowners at either Imperial or Avalon at Sienna Plantation can easily access both locations.

Details Matter: How to Bring Light to Every Room in Your Home

Guest Contributor Lee K. Crowder, Design Gallery and Model Home Branding Manager for Taylor Morrison and Darling Homes

Darling Homes builds in the metro areas of Dallas and Houston. However, no matter where you live, sooner or later the sun goes down (or the clouds come out) and Mother Nature needs an assist. That’s where smart lighting choices come in. Lee Crowder, our Design Gallery and Home Branding Manager, offers illuminating insights about home lighting in our Details Matter series.

Let the Sunshine In!

Lee Crowder says home lighting begins with the floorplan’s design and how the home is situated on the homesite.

Whether you get sun exposure throughout the day or only during certain times of day depends on whether you home has an East/West or North/South orientation. Pay attention to the site plan when you’re shopping for a new home. If you love waking up to morning sunshine, you’ll want your owner’s suite facing east. If you savor watching sunsets, pick a home with a balcony or picture window facing west.

Lee K. Crowder

The thought and attention that goes into details like site orientation are part of the Darling Homes Experience.  

Obviously, the more windows in your home, the more natural light you’ll enjoy throughout the day. If that’s your vision of perfection, then look for homes with volume ceilings and windows that soar the full two stories, typically offered in great rooms, living rooms and owners suites.

Home design 6734 at The Woodlands, Smooth Stream - 65' Patio Homesites | 3,415 Sq. Ft. | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Baths | 2 Half Baths | 3 Garage | 2 Stories

By contrast, rooms with lower ceilings (9 feet of height vs 11 feet or more) reduce the amount of natural light and make the space feel darker at times.

Dealing with Shade

Family rooms that open onto covered patios tend to be darker. In that case, Lee suggests adding extra LED flush-mounted lighting. This may also be a solution for brightening up a secondary bedroom where there’s only one window.

Perhaps your foyer could use some brightening during the day.  Add glass panel insert windows to your front door and let natural light flow into your home.  If you have a small or narrow entry, you might want to borrow this trick.

Landscaping is another consideration that can impact natural light. “Trees and tall shrubbery can cut down significantly on the amount of sunshine your home receives,” says Lee.

Finally, don’t overlook window coverings that provide privacy (and protect upholstery) without blocking natural light. “Your Design Consultant at the Taylor Morrison Design Studio can show you a variety of suitable window treatments for this purpose that will complement your overall design scheme.”

Brighten Up and Lighten Up

Okay, you’ve made the most of the available sunshine. Let’s see what design tips and tricks Lee advises for creating the illusion of light. Paint, especially white paint, can be your best friend, according to Lee.

“A neutral base color for your rooms will make your home look brighter, while also giving you greater flexibility with the rest of your color palette. Off-set the neutral walls with crisp, white trim for a bright, sophisticated look. And don’t overlook the power white ceilings have to create the illusion of height and spaciousness, even in small rooms.”

24/7 Daylight at Your Fingertips

Lucky us. We can flip a switch (or punch a smartphone app) and light up the darkest space, creating everything from the brilliance of sunlight to the soft ambient glow of moonlight. Best of all, we can do it without generating the harsh shadows or excessive heat of the old-fashioned incandescent bulbs.

“At Taylor Morrison and Darling Homes we use LED ceiling flush-mounted lights instead of traditional can lights. These are thin disks that affix easily to the ceiling and let you add LED lighting to any room in the house. They have the added advantages of lasting longer than incandescent can lights and, because they collect no dust, you won’t need to open the fixture to clean them. That’s a big plus!”

Lee recommends reviewing your various spaces and ceiling heights to determine where to add more LED disks.

“If you spend a lot of time in the room doing things like reading, crafts, office or homework and other tasks that require good light, you’ll want additional disks. If the ceilings are low, adding more disks is a clever way to make the room appear larger. They make it a snap to find clothing, especially in a deep walk-in closet. And they are ideal over vanities where you want good light for applying makeup and grooming.”

In bedrooms or family rooms, especially in warmer climates, you should consider adding a light kit to your ceiling fans to get the benefit of cooling and illumination in one package.

Designing with Light and Light Fixtures

Explore the lighting design in person by taking a tour of our 5031 Model Plan at Lakewood at Brookhollow in Prosper, TX | Models open daily.

Take the virtual tour of our 5031 Model Plan at Lakewood at Brookhollow in Prosper, TX and you’ll notice dramatic pendant lights over the kitchen island as well as flush-mounted disk lights in the ceiling. “Your kitchen is certainly someplace where you don’t want to skimp on lighting, and this model demonstrates how you can have the design element of pendants combined with highly functional but inconspicuous ceiling lights.”

Sparkle and Shine Your Way

A major perk of buying a new Darling home is your visit to the Design Gallery. “You’ll see a dazzling selection of lighting fixtures for task lighting and mood-setting, along with hardware, flooring, wall and window treatment options, appliances and much more,” says Lee. “It’s your opportunity to make your home reflect your taste with the expert help of a professional design consultant.”

Here’s a Bright Idea

It’s a great time to visit a Darling Home community near you. Touring a few model homes is an excellent way to understand how much details matter when they’re thoughtfully combined. It’s a fun way to spark your imagination and turn on a few creative lightbulbs, too! Explore all our Darling Homes communities online, find the one that’s absolutely YOU and plan a visit today.

Your Guide to Rodeo Houston

If you live in Houston, you know exactly what Rodeo Houston means to the city. Cowboy hats and boots, live music, carnival rides and the world’s largest livestock show and rodeo. Known as the best tradition in Texas, Rodeo Houston is much more than just entertainment. It’s a celebration of Texas culture that aims to educate and raise money for various charities around the state.

Go Texan Day kicks things off. The day celebrates the unofficial kickoff of the 20-day Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Houston residents dress up in their Texas best, sporting jeans, cowboy hats and boots to school or work, showing off their western pride for tradition. You’ll see #GoTexanDay everywhere on local social media, from Houston news stations displaying their Rodeo style to elementary school classrooms full of tiny Texas boots. Go Texan Day is a day for everyone of all ages to come together to celebrate Texas’ Western heritage and raise awareness for rodeo season.

The Rodeo takes place at NRG Park in Harris County and takes over NRG Stadium, NRG Arena and NRG Center. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo was first established in 1932 as the Houston Fat Stock Show and has now grown to more than 30,000 entries. The show is organized by three categories of competitions known as the Junior Show, Open Show and Youth Show. The show sets world records in the junior market auctions, raising more than $12 million in 2016. Submissions for the junior auctions include school art as well as different types of livestock and wool entries.

The official sport of Texas is rodeo and at Rodeo Houston, you’ll understand why. Events include tie-down roping, bareback riding, team roping and more happen throughout the event. The bull riding competition tests the cowboy’s physical strength as he faces off with a bull weighing up to 2,000 pounds whose single thought is removing the rider off its back. Participants in these events come from across the nation in hopes of taking home one or more of the Rodeo’s coveted grand prizes, totaling a $2.17 million payout.

Every night after the rodeo dust settles, a superstar will steal the show. With this year’s performances from pop star Camila Cabello and EDM entertainer Zedd, the music is larger than life, true to Texas tradition. Not to mention the performances from some of country music’s finest including Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, George Strait, Chris Stapleton, Zac Brown Brand and much more.

Why Houston? A Spotlight on Sports

From football to soccer, Houston is home to many successful professional sports. Not only is the city home to a number of professional teams and college sports programs, many other annual sporting events for teams outside of Texas are also hosted in Houston. Plus, Texas pride and loyalty makes for an unparalleled fan culture.

Houston is home to six professional major league teams and four stadiums that hold over 150,000 fans collectively, making it worthy of the title, Sports City, USA in 2016.

The Houston Texans anchor the city’s fascination with sports and have established themselves as the most iconic part of Houston’s sports identity. Led by fan favorite J.J. Watt, NRG Stadium is packed with football fans during home games making attending a game an experience in its own.

Then there’s James Harden and The Houston Rockets – another huge part of Houston’s sports culture. The Rockets plays their home games at Toyota Center in downtown Houston and have collected two NBA championships and four Western Conference titles during their time in Houston. With the arrival of star player Harden in 2012, the Rockets soon became one of the highest scoring offenses in the NBA.

The Houston Dynamo are yet another professional sports team that the city has to offer fans. The soccer club was established in 2005 and quickly went on to win the 2006 and 2007 MLS Cups as well as the U.S. Open Cup in 2018. Then there’s this fact: In 2008, Houston Dynamo became the first American club to secure a point on Mexican soil during the CONCACAF Champions League.

Last but most certainly not least are The Houston Astros. The 2017 World Series champs play their home games at Minute Maid Park in downtown Houston and have established themselves as one of the American League’s top teams to beat this decade.

There are many reasons why Houston is a great city to call home. One of them is the abundance of professional sporting teams and events to enjoy, but more importantly is the spirited culture you can experience throughout either city. Know a sports fan looking to make the move to Houston? Have them take a look at all that Darling Homes has to offer.
