BIA Parade of Homes 2016 - My Favorite Home Exterior

Parade of HomesSara Michelle B.1 Comment

If you've followed my blog for awhile, you know of my all-time favorite things to do is to attend the annual BIA Parade of Homes in Columbus, Ohio. I think I've gone every year since I was in the fifth grade - no joke! And seriously, this year was one of the BEST years yet! So many beautiful, well-designed, impeccably decorated homes. As usual though, my favorite home was the New England Homes. It was a-m-a-z-i-n-g! I loved the layout, the color scheme, the curb appeal, and especially the back yard. I took so many pictures that I will break up the house tour into two separate posts, starting with the exterior:

One of the coolest things about this backyard porch was that it has screens that you could automatically open and close with the push of a button on a remote.

The curb appeal? Ah, love this on so many levels. So my style!

I also love the idea of the barn door on the back of the garage, This led into an indoor basketball court. By far my husband's favorite thing about the house! (And as a mom of two boys, I could see this coming in handy, especially in the cold Ohio winters!)

Pretty cool right? Check back tomorrow for the interior tour!
