Touring homes, new and old, provides inspiration for me to spruce up our home. I recently enjoyed touring five newly built homes that were highlighted in a local home show called Home-A-Rama. It was put on by the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis (BAGI) in the beautiful neighborhood of Sagamore in Noblesville, Indiana. All of the homes back up to the Jack Nicholas Signature Golf Course. I'll show you the homes with a collage of my favorite photos of each home. I'll conclude with four decorating ideas I saw during the tour that have inspired me to perhaps use at our home.
Home #1 by Williams Custom Art Builders
A common theme of the homes is an open concept. There are no walls separating the living/great room areas from the kitchen and dining room. The earthy color scheme in this wonderful home is neutral and elegant. Note the ceilings are a darker shade than the walls.
Home #2 by McKenzie Collection
More neutral colors here with an amazing basement, bottom photo on the right. The basement ceiling rafters were painted in a metallic color which adds a neat feature to the room.
Home #3 by Gradison Design Build
I found it quite interesting to see how the aqua color theme is carried throughout this gorgeous home, from walls, to floors, to furniture to accent pieces.
Home #4 by Matt Beecher Builders
This lovely home has accents of yellow throughout.
This fabulous home has elegant neutrals, an amazing basement and back porch living space.
As I mentioned above, here are some decorating ideas I saw that I may want to incorporate in our home. Using a wheel to attach papers of interest with clothespins; this framed sneakers print makes me want to create a mixed media piece with book pages in the background (this reminds me of our son who had a vast collection of sneakers); a collection of glass bottles in an elongated wooden box; using a mason jar as a photo frame.
If you would like to see these beautiful homes firsthand, the final week of the home show is October 1-4th. More information about it can be found here.
