Great Designs...Great Locations...Great Value!

Happy Holidays to All!

Jennifer Cosco, Sales Manager 


A special thank you goes out to all of our community residents that have taken part in the Harlow Farms sponsorship of  two families this holiday season with their donations! It is so good to see a community at work for the sake of others! And a warm thank you to Simone, who has done such a good job of coordinating the effort. 

It is lovely to see all the lights up in the neighborhood, the trees in the windows, the wreaths on the doors. Harlow Farms truly is beautiful year round thanks in part to you, our residents!
Remember that the Community Center is available to you for your family and friend get togethers for the holidays! We have had a few residents sign up for the center, but there are still several dates available. With plenty of space, a flat screen TV, convenient kitchenette, cozy fireplace, and plenty of seating, it's a great way to through a party.
Wishing you a safe and happy Holiday Season!  

We have done a considerable amount of updating on the content of our website. You will now find several galleries of photos, maps, links to virtual tours, useful information, etc.

Designing Tips With Chris

Chris Richards, Customer Care


Chris Richards

10 Holiday Decorating Tips 
1. Stay with one theme and style for your holiday decorating. It makes shopping for decor easier and makes your space feel professionally finished.


2. Let your nose know it's the holiday season. Place potpourri and scented candles near your entry and throughout your house. Or, better yet, bake some cookies shortly before guests arrive.


3. Choose two to three colors for your holiday palette and keep it consistent. Multiple color palettes can be too distracting. Try silver, blue and white or red, gold and brown.


4. Create an inexpensive family tradition that involves the kids. Purchase a ready-made wreath of greens then gather items to decorate it. Use pine cones, ribbons, crystals, feathers, beaded garland or homemade paper snowflakes.


5. Give your space a different look and feel for this special time of year. Rearrange your furniture so the focal point is the fireplace or wherever you hang stockings. If you don't have a fireplace, arrange the furniture to create the best layout for cozy conversations.


6. Colored lights can be costly if you change your color palette from year to year. Stick with white lights; they can be used with any color scheme.


7. Start investing in a collection - something that can continue to grow through the years and can be passed on to the next generation. Check out online auction sites for vintage decorations.


8. Use lots of candles. Nothing makes a room feel warmer and more inviting than candlelight.


9. Bring the holiday celebration into every room. Kitchens and bathrooms are a great place to put scented candles and smaller seasonal knickknacks.


10. The holiday season is definitely one time where "less is more" does NOT apply. Have fun and do it up big.
