Modern Interior – Utah Valley Parade of Homes Tour part 1

- house inspiration, parade of homes, Uncategorized

I’m sure part of it is the barbecues, crisp air, yummy desserts and a little house planning that makes this time of year so fun, but a big part of my love for this season is it’s Parade time. Utah has a few different areas that host the Parade of Homes so from June to September we pick and choose houses to walk through (and probably see 75+ homes) from the St. George Parade of Homes, Utah Valley Parade of Homes (definitely my favorite), Northern Wasatch Parade of Homes, Salt Lake Parade of Homes and Park City Showcase of Homes (which is also a favorite) and we love every dang second of it. There’s something about the Parade that gets my blood a bubblin’. Modern interiors and out-of-the-box ideas are in the air.

To say I’m a Parade veteran is an understatement. We’ve went for as many years as I can remember and the love started waaaay before I ever planned on growing up, having a family or building a house of my own. I’m only half teasing when I say my obsession with houses is my dad’s fault. I remember helping pick out his countertops at his projects when my sister and I were still in Elementary school.

To start this series of posts, I want to share with you some of my favorite houses from the Utah Valley Parade of Homes and give you a glimpse into some of my favorite houses that incorporated modern interior design perfectly. So, here you have part one of your virtual Parade of Homes tour.

In order of my favorite houses, (it was a hard race for first place between #1 and #31) but first up house #31 by Emerald Homes. Too cool. The thick beams and the stacked brick were my favorites on the exterior. Let’s not forget the incredible modern landscaping and don’t you love the steel boxes that make a cozy little home for those killer trees? Inside you can find the same stacked brick on the fireplace and the same thick cedar exposed beams. It made a great combination for a mid century feeling while still keeping a very modern interior and a sense of elegance.

Very few houses rock the flooring like this one did. The carpet, tile and wood were all unique and definitely caught my eye. On the tile they mirrored the same stacked look as they had on the fireplace and paired it with a very light contemporary wood that had tons of texture.

Love how modern this tile looks stacked like this! Find more trendy house ideas on Happy Confetti's Parade of Homes house tour.

I’m still searching for these awesome copper air plant holders that were on their kitchen table. Love their styling and attention to all the little details.

      You know, I didn’t even think of that but you are right. It definitely seems like a classy masculine.

    I love looking at homes around the country. They are so different from state to state. This one is so unique (to me) but I love it! So beautiful.

      I was curious if you ever cosediernd changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
