I’m getting ready to head out on my annual trek with my girlfriend to Homearama, and I’m so excited! Will I ever tire of home tours? I doubt it, they’re so much fun! Last year’s Homearama was more local, and there was supposed to be one in my town this year, but apparently, it was pushed out to next year. So, my home-snooping girlfriend and I are driving a bit south in the hopes of getting our house touring fix.
I mean, what’s not to love about home tours? You get to preview the latest and greatest trends.
I always seem to walk away inspired, with new ideas to implement in my own home. Whether it’s colors, fabrics or finishes.
I’m sure I’ll be awestruck by some fab front doors too. You know how much I love a good front door. Especially since I’m itching to redo my own.
Plus, there are usually some over the top awesome basements on these tours as well.
Home office spaces are another popular feature in today’s new homes. All sorts of different ways to make it interesting and still functional.
Luxurious master retreats… Yes, please.
And dreamy master bathrooms. I’m sure there must be a mini fridge in there somewhere so I can keep my hazelnut creamer at the perfect temperature…
Crazy amazing closets…
Beautiful woodwork and attention to detail…
Clever storage in unexpected places…
Beautiful outdoor spaces…
And mud rooms. Please let there be lots of mud rooms.
And maybe a cool pantry or two.
Or a pantry with hidden doors – that would be even better.
Some cool kid rooms always inspire –
Some will be downright enchanting, I’m sure.
And let’s not forget the stunning exteriors!
Where our first impressions are made –
So, get ready for Homearama Week next week! I can’t wait to share all of the home goodness with all of you. Click on the links below to check out last year’s tour.
