Birmingham Parade of Homes

We took a break from working on the house this weekend to take a peek round the Birmingham Parade of Homes.  It was my first time at the parade, and in all honestly, most of the homes were unbelievably old fashioned, with generic staging furniture.  Nothing noteworthy or inspirational, just lots and lots of over sized matchy bedroom sets.

When we came across the Signature Homes latest model, it was like a breath of fresh air.  Modern fixtures and bathrooms and kitchens that I would have loved to pick up and plop straight into our house.

There was some serious moulding in the living room.

I loved the back splash in the kitchen, a beautiful grey elongated subway tile.

Neutral tones in the bedroom, and I liked the different hanging heights of the 3 pictures above the bed.

A pretty headboard and unusual pendent bedside lights.

I loved the pop or orange in this bedroom.

And the old locker.

If you don't love a graphic bolster pillow well, you're wrong.

This was a genius use of an awkward nook - a little playhouse with teeny door, window and planter.  Inside you can see the play kitchen and through the window you can just about make out the chalk board wall.

This outside area was my favorite.  It had large barn style sliding doors and a built in kitchen.  Perfect for game day.

Has anyone else been to a Parade of Homes in their area?  What did you think; worth it or a bit disappointing?
