Ventana Selects Interior Design Associates, Inc.

In keeping with our promise to provide the best of the best, Buckner has selected IDA, Interior Design Associates, Inc., of Nashville, Tennessee to provide design services for Ventana. IDA is a national industry leader in interior design for senior living. In their 33 years they have designed 109 communities and counting, and have received dozens of awards for their work from the National Association of Home Builders and the Southeast Building Conference.“The interiors of Ventana are a reflection of the architecture of the building; softly urban, transitional and iconic,” said Cameron Fort, Project Manager at IDA. “Public areas are elegant yet comfortable, with a classic but current palette of umber, smoke blue, mahogany and ivory. “IDA’s plans for residential apartments include luxurious finishes, such as options for granite or Carrera marble countertops, options for hand-scraped wood flooring, plush carpet and decorative glass tiles. With a state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor pool, performing arts center and four distinctly different dining venues, Ventana has something to offer everyone.
