From backsplash to bar stools, celebrity interior designer Bobby Berk curated 10 finish and furniture collections for Context at Oakhurst, a new townhome community in Charlotte.

Why it matters: If you were in awe of the miracles Berk worked on "Queer Eye," now you can take advantage of his expert eye.

What they're saying: It's all about "democratizing design," Berk tells Axios.

  • New build communities have a stigma of being soulless, but all homes — even the storied historic ones — started as new, he says.
  • He started working with Tri Pointe Homes to share his expert touch across the country at a more accessible price point than working one-on-one with a designer.

How it works: The are 10 different themed packages to choose from like serene Scandinavian, transitional farmhouse and organic modern — all curated by Berk.

  • Everything — from lighting to countertops to wall colors — is included in your finish package, and you can add furniture, home accessories and artwork curated specifically for that collection, too.
  • If you don't plan on buying a new townhouse, you can still shop Berk's collections.

Zoom in: Townhomes at the Context at Oakhurst are 1,416—1,991 square feet and start in the mid-$400s. These three-story new builds have 2-4 bedrooms; 2.5-4 bathrooms; and one- or two-car garages.

We got to preview the models with Berk. Here's a look around.
