Last weekend, the 2020 Salt Lake Parade of Homes finished showing off the best work from builders and designers across Utah. This year, the Parade included something for everyone, from a modern townhome to a classic remodel and a sprawling family estate to a tiny ski shed. Our favorite homes were in conversation with contemporary trends but weren’t afraid to display a distinctive sense of style, bringing their own unique, refreshing sensibilities to this year’s roster. Here are the highlights from the 2020 Salt Lake Parade of Homes:
The Big Little House by Jackson & Leroy
We’ve been a fan of this one from the beginning. We featured this sparkling remodel from designer Anne Marie Barton and Jackson & Leroy last year, and the newly updated project, complete with a newly renovated lower level, was a big hit in this year’s Parade. Barton and her collaborators retained the timeless charm of this 1940s Sugar House property while adding pitch-perfect modern details. Some of the home’s most memorable elements include several show-stopping wallpapers, a brass-framed open shelf in the kitchen and a music room boasting a drool-worthy vinyl collection. This home may be little, but its bold style is anything but.
The Millcreek Retreat by Unified Contractors
This one-of-a-kind home elevates the urban jungle to a new level. Using an eclectic range of influences, from the property’s mountain views to Disney’s “Jungle Cruise,” the Millcreek Retreat takes a walk on the wild side. Dominated by an earthy color palette of browns and greens, the playful design includes touches of the outdoors in every room. And who could resist this whimsical kids’ room, including a cozy teepee?
Wasatch SkiShed by Breen Homes
There’s not a spare inch wasted in this miniature home located near Big Cottonwood Canyon. At just 360 square feet, this minimalist’s dream is eco-friendly, sustainable and completely portable. This comfortable space has everything you need—though with the slopes so close, why spend your day lounging inside?
Mauna by Dimond Built
At 9,518 square feet, Mauna is the Parade’s largest home, and the space is an ideal home base for entertaining and family living. This Draper property boasts multiple kitchens and family rooms, a party-ready game room and a happily-ever-after child’s bedroom. Mauna, which translates to “mountain” in Hawaiian, appropriately features grand mountain views.
