Lifestyle | Preview Tour Of The 2017 BIA Parade Of Homes (Columbus, Ohio) + GIVEAWAY!

 Hi friends!

I could not wait to go on the Muddy Boots Preview Tour! I love to look at and explore beautiful homes and spaces and I'm sure I'm not alone in that! I just love to be inspired by all of the creativity. It's so fun to get ideas for your future home and/or present space. I just like dwelling in pretty spaces too and appreciating their design. Last week, the Builder Industry Association (BIA) of Central Ohio invited members of the media to a Muddy Boots Preview Tour of the 2017 Parade homes and we were able to check out nine high-end, luxury homes!

The Parade features homes by the region's premier builders, including:
Ambassador Homes | Fischer Homes | Manor Homes | Maple Craft Custom Homes 
 Preston Development | Rockford Homes | Silvestri Group | Trinity Homes | Westport Homes 

The 2017 Parade opens on Labor Day Weekend. It runs from September 2nd through the 17th. It will be held at the new Cheshire Woods development in Delaware County. The parade hours are Monday-Saturday: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $15 at the door and there are discount tickets  available online for $13. Children 12 and under are free and parking is $5 per car. The Parade is sponsored by AEP Ohio, America's Floor Source, Columbia Gas of Ohio, EverDry Waterproofing, First Federal lending and LP SmartSide.

Find and follow them on FacebookInstagramTwitter and Pinterest!

The 2017 Foundation Home not only gives Parade guests ideas and inspiration for their own homes, but it also gives back! The sale of the Foundation Home benefits the BIA Foundation and Habitat for Humanity - MidOhio... which is amazing!

Here are the homes we toured:
This was one of my favorite couch setups! I loved the mix of prints and the color combination they choose. I also really loved the rug!
How stunning is this room? All of the details of this house were just perfect. 
All of the beautiful wood pieces below are by Damsel In Distress Design.
I had the pleasure of meeting Bethany of Damsel In Distress Design during our tour. She was so sweet. I'm not sure if I loved the shoe storage or the bath tray caddy more! You can check out more of her work on her Facebook page!
So many fun textures!
This house had major '60s vibes. The entire house had a black and white color scheme. I loved the uniqueness and simplicity of it. 
Dream bathtub?! I think I need one of these.
I didn't know that I was obsessed with white brick until I saw this house! 
I loved all of the unique light fixtures in this home. 
Such a lovely kitchen space!
Every room in this home was just so beautiful! 
I want this chandelier! It's so stunning. 

Fred loved all of the pale gray color schemes that we saw. That's his fave!
I loved the modern meets farmhouse look that we saw in many of the houses. There were beautiful recycled barn wood accents and open concept floor plans. 
At first, I didn't even realize that the closet was the closet. I thought it was another room! It was so huge!
I love the refurbished wood pieces. This house consists of many wood pieces that come from local Amish families. 
Fred and I really loved this house and all of it's unique textures and features. We were ready to move in ha ha. Be sure to check out Couture Designs.
The countertops feature GEOLUXE, which is a slab material combining the beauty of natural marble with superior technical performance.
We loved this feature! Below, is is stone made to look like wood. It was so pretty.
I would encourage all of my local readers to attend the parade and check out all of the houses we got to see! If you'd like to tour the completed homes, be sure to follow the steps below for a giveaway!
