Culver City, CA - Interior design firm Color Design Art (CDA) announces new regional awards for its interior design, model home merchandising and sales office design achievements. "For every demographic and price point, we take pride in creating lifestyle environments that respond to the aspirations of real world buyers," says CDA president Don Anderson. "We are delighted with this most recent recognition of our success in this regard." Color Design Art's latest accolades came at the SAM Awards, sponsored by the San Diego Sales and Marketing Council and the Elan Awards, sponsored by the Sales and Marketing Council of Los Angeles/Ventura. Color Design Art also contributed to a "best of show" honor in the SAM program, where Shea Home's Sanctuary was named Best Detached Community of the Year for homes priced more than $700,001. Winning a SAM for interior design was Plan 3 at Silhouette in San Diego for John Laing Homes. The firm took an Elan for model interior merchandising of Plan 3 at Cordelane in San Diego by John Laing Homes and Plan 3 at Sanctuary for Shea. The firm also earned an Elan for the model sales center for Encantada at Ladera Ranch for Pardee Homes. This honor contributed to the top award for Encantada as Community of the Year for detached housing priced more than $850,000.

"We rely on our industry's finest and most innovative professionals to create model homes that reflect our company and speak to our buyers," says Teri Shusterman, vice president of marketing for Shea Homes. "We thank Color Design Art for their contributions to our success and applaud their honors in the Elan and SAM competitions."

Anderson notes that Color Design Art project teams deserved the highest credit for the firm's ongoing recognition. "All of these honors are a direct reflection of the work from our designers and project managers in Culver City and in Thousand Oaks," he adds.
