Hubby and I just got home from our annual St. George, UT Home Show getaway.
We started this tradition 4 years ago. Heading to warmer weather in February makes the 3 1/2 to 4 hour drive worth while. Did I mention that it was a beautiful 68 degrees.
This is the first year that we visited all 28 homes. I got some fun ideas.
I took a ton of pictures so prepare yourself for collage mania. Hard to believe that there were plenty of homes that I didn’t snap a single pic.
As usual, my favorite kitchens were the ones with white cupboards and some glass doors. Notice the bead board on the ceiling? Hubby and I just finished doing that in our living room. Now we need to put it on one wall and then paint. Can’t wait!!
This group all sport my favorite robins egg blue color. LOVE it! I thought that the trio of bird clocks was sweet. Think hubby would let me paint my wood door that color?
Many of you are taking down wallpaper. I’m here to say, it’s back in. Don’t you love this sweet mustard combination on the ceiling and wall? Also loved the color in the laundry and around the t.v. Great idea don’t you think? I couldn’t get enough of the white moldings. My entire home has tan. This WILL change someday. Thinking maybe when we finish our basement I’ll just have the painters do upstairs as well. I can see a bundle deal coming. lol!
I am not an orange lover, but thought that this kids room was so cute! Had to throw in the sweet orange theater sign.
I loved the old fashioned feel of this shower curtain! The other curtain was just a simple store bought valance with extra strips of fabric knotted in between. Easy way to dress it up.
And let’s not forget the girls.
More mustards. How fun are the giant books? I also thought that the plate framed was a unique way to display a special piece.
The camera did not do these pics justice. This soda shop room just outside of a theater had everyone squealing with delight. It sure made me want to sit down and have a sip!
These are a few rustic things that caught my eye.
I love this large metal container and these old gate headboards are funky fun!
This was one of my favorite (gotta do) ideas. I love how they used barn wood around this bbq center. And the old tin with a blue patina was fabulous! Notice the planter to match?
Some fun outdoors. This sauna room was right off of a patio with a gorgeous pool. Lots of gorgeous pools! A bit of jealousy goin on over here at my house. I keep repeating, “I WILL NOT covet my neighbor!”
Alot of the homes were not really my taste. A bit too South Western for me, and many of them are an adobe style that are made to blend in with the earth surroundings. But I sure had a wonderful time, found some treasures (old and new), and came home with some fun ideas wouldn’t you agree?
Makes me want to get busy with a home improvement project. Oh, forgot that we are in the middle of one right now. Hee-hee! Not really an improvement, just a “add a bit of character’ project might be a better name.
I’ll keep you posted,
