Since moving to Utah, I’ve attended the Utah Valley Parade of homes each year (see my posts for 2014/2014 B & 2013). I’m a bit late sharing my favorites from this year, but looking through them a month later was so much fun. These aren’t in any particular order (I can’t remember the house numbers either), but if you have questions, I’ll do my best to remember what I can!
There were two mudrooms that I loved. The first had these lovely reclaimed wood ceilings and black lockers with house numbers and recessed pulls…
the other had this lovely settee and a giant round mirror. I love the elegance added to a space for shoes and coats.
There were so many awesome textures and details in the homes this year. I love this style of railing, a little modern cape cod.
These lovely paneled cabinets in the craft room…
Pretty much everything about this room I love. Of course its similar to my boy’s bathroom, so of course I do!
This adorable, feminine, mint green vanity.
One of my favorite bathrooms was this one. I loved how oversized everything felt and those mirrors are just to die for, along with the large hex tiles on the walls. I might have to rethink the styling in one of my unfinished basement bathrooms.
A lumberjack-y room! (check out my son’s lumberjack room)
Now to my favorite exterior. Hard to tell from this photo, but the majority of this house is white painted brick. It looks amazing. I love the symmetry as well, and just how unique the whole thing is.
More painted white brick in the family room.
And now here are a few random rooms that I loved. This cheery yellow and white laundry room.
This modern kitchen with black glass-door cabinets and pipe shelving.
And I’ll end on my favorite bedroom. An attic of course, and I love all the details including the giraffe sheets.
I had the awesome opportunity to attend a blogger event at IKEA (the location in Draper Utah) where they gave us a preview of all the lovely new products that were just released. All of my favorites were office/desktop items and I’m super excited to show you my picks:
I got to take one item home with me, and I chose this chic desk lamp with a base that wirelessly charges my cell phone! I was thrilled to get it all set up and test it out, and it works great!
Here’s what the base looks like on my lamp. Your phone has to have a special ikea phone case that functions as a receiver and charges your phone through contact with the base. So far I’m loving it! And there are other wireless charging items as well, even a nightstand that wirelessly charges your phone!
If you’ve been to Ikea lately, I’d love to hear about your favorites too.
Oh and I haven’t talked about this here, but Mr. Project is going to be assembling and installing an Ikea kitchen in a home that he’s working on. I’ll be updating soon on that process!
