How do they get those model homes to look so nice?

You can find out Saturday, June 27, and it won’t cost you a cent. In fact, you could leave with a $500 gift certificate.

Pottery barn is teaming up with Atherton Homes to present a free design essentials seminar from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the model home complex for The Summit Collection at Union Ranch at 2517 Edgebrook Lane of Union Road north of Lathrop Road.

All attendees have a chance to win one of three Pottery Barn gift certificates – one for $500 and two for $250. Light refreshments will be served. You do need to reserve a spot by calling 824-2071 or e-mailing

In addition, anyone who purchases an Atherton Home in July will receive a $1,000 Pottery Barn gift card and a private design consultation. That is in addition to a $10,000 lender incentive and a $10,000 summer savings incentive.
