Land lease communities are not your average trailer park or mobile home community. Today's land lease communities offer safe, affordable housing in well managed communities where you can rent or own your own home.

10 Years After Hurricane Katrina

Katrina Cottages 6
It's hard to believe that's it's been 10 years since Katrina set her eye on New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. So much of the media was focused on New Orleans, but the entire Gulf Coast especially in Mississippi has yet to fully recover from her wrath.
When it became obvious that here was going to be extensive loss of housing , the Manufactured Housing Institute and the manufactured housing community sprung into action to make sue that people would have a place to live that was safe.
A few years after the storm MHI's magazine: Modern Homes had an article written by Lifestylist® Suzanne Felber with photography by Lisa Stewart Photography that shared what progress had been made, and what an important part of the rebuilding process manufactured housing played.

Timeless Home Design

Coral Sitting The Louisville Manufactured Housing Show was held this week, and hundreds of manufactured housing buyers attended the event that had 48 homes showcasing what's new in home design. It motivated me to revisit the homes that Lifestylist Design had merchandised for Patriot Homes over the years and I came across this one. It's the perfect example of timeless design, or even deign ahead of it's time. Drapery panels instead of fussy valances? Yes. High flat ceilings? Yes again. Soft muted colors accented by fabrics and accessories? Exactly what we are seeing today. Believe it or not, this was a home that was shown 8 years ago! This is a perfect example why great design will never go out of style. When looking for your new home look for ideas that aren't trendy but are something you want to live with for a long time. By adding color in items that can easily be replaced like fabric, furniture and accessories you'll always be in style.

Hapy Easter!

As a Lifestylist®, I love to decorate for the holidays. It doesn't have to big a huge expense or time challenge - just bringing out the things you love and creating new memories makes that special day one to remember.
This is a home that we LifeStyled for Patriot Homes back in 2002 - where has the time gone! It was at the Tunica show, and I love that Patriot always let me merchandise our homes to show lifestyle, including holidays and special events.
The home was their least expensive model, but we reminded people that every home is a place where the new owners can create their own special memories.
Happy Easter from all of us at The Lifestylist Brands and American Housing Advocates.
