Parade Of Homes 2014: {Color}

The Salt Lake Parade Of Homes comes every August & it feels like Christmas for me!
  It feeds my addiction of touring homes!  

{Part 2}: Color
I loved the homes that had a neutral background and added pops of color with furniture & accent pieces.  This was such a bright & cheery house and I thought the turquoise and coral accents of color were beautiful!

 I love this colorful couch!
This kitchen was so bright... I love the pop of color the barstools added!
 I loved the whole look!
 This was a little sitting area at the other end of the kitchen...Look at those views!
 This little nursery was adorable!
Here was the other side...These colors look great together!

 I love the light blue color of the exterior!   The porch was also pretty dreamy! 
 This was the living room...notice the neutral background with pops of color with the accessories.
 This home had a cottage feel, which I loved!
 Isn't that the cutest sink in the laundry room?
 I LOVED these windows...look at the view!
The master bedroom was beautiful!  
Look at the tub in the master bath!
This whole house was like a charming cottage!  It was one of my favorites!

Parade Of Homes: Home Tour #1

 The Salt Lake Parade Of Homes  just ended on Saturday.
  It's something I look forward to every year!   
It's so fun going on home tours to see how they are styled and decorated!
There were so many amazing homes this year, I will be breaking this into a few posts.
I noticed a few trends this year: Bright colors, beautiful bedrooms with upholstered beds, sliding barn doors, fun family rooms & cute play areas for the kids.
Let's get to the home tour!

Home #1: CD Construction Inc.
This home was AMAZING!

It was originally constructed in the 1920's and they completely renovated the existing home and added a 2,400 square foot addition.
 This is the original staircase when you walk in the door.
 This is the living room...I love the arched doors!
 On the other side of the living room is this original woodwork and doorway that shows the upstairs hallway.
 Then you go up a few steps to the dining area.

Here is the view from the other side...it was so charming!
 The kitchen area is so bright!  I loved the pendant lights and the hood above the stove.
 From the kitchen was this gorgeous hallway.
It led to a bathroom...
A laundry room...
 A little mudroom...
This is the view from the doors in the hallway...

A beautiful pool!
 With a beautiful patio area...
 This home is full of character and charm!
  It is also in such a beautiful neighborhood...
 All of the streets are lined with big, old, beautiful trees!
I hope you enjoyed the first home tour!
This was definitely one of my favorites!

Fall Decorating Ideas...

It's always a sad time when summer is coming to an end, unfortunately my kids go back to school in a few days! 
There is one positive thing about the end of summer...Fall!
It is one of my favorite seasons.

Here are a few things I like to incorporate into decorating for Fall:

1-Use Pumpkins

2- Use Fall Foliage

3- Use Different Containers To Display Fall 


4-Put Them All Together

All of that inspiration helps my depression about school starting & summer coming to an end!
When do you start decorating for Fall?

A new soap dispenser - Show and Tell Friday


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday! 


 Before I get to the little thing I'm sharing this week, I have some good news to share! 


 I mentioned before that I was in training to become a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) and I'm happy to say that after 30 hours of training, I was sworn in by the judge on Tuesday!  For those that don't know...I will explain it as quickly as I can.

Show and Tell will be delayed until Friday

Show and Tell will be up on Friday! Sorry for the delay! 

Lemon-Garlic Shrimp & Veggies {quick, simple, last minute meal}

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of American Frozen Foods Institute and the Frozen Food Roundtable for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

This is such a simple meal. It takes very little prep, is ready in minutes, and the serving sizes are easily adjustable so you can make enough for a large crowd or take it down to a single serving. (Perfect for last minute guests!!)
