The 2020 Utah Valley Parade of Homes is back—and it’s featuring some of the most awe-inspiring homes in the state. Designers and builders pulled out all the stops on these extravagant estates, and we have some of the hottest tips and trends from this year’s Parade.
Black and White Dominates
Black and white continue to rule as a modern-day palette power couple. This tried-and-true color combo provides sharp contrasts and classic appeal that never goes out of style.
Things are looking up as detailed ceiling treatments elevate the style of rooms throughout the home. From dazzling light fixtures to unique materials, these beautiful ceilings are going straight to the top.
The Mix is In
Kitchens prove the mix is in—and oh-so-hot. Why settle on one finish for cabinets or a single stone for countertops when compelling pairings deliver interest and character to the most-used space in the home.
In the Dark
Dark rooms continue to add contrast to homes defined by predominantly white-painted spaces. From offices to laundry rooms, deep, moody colors continue to add surprising depth to one-note palettes of white.
Rounded elements take the edge off spaces defined by sharp corners and strong angles. From circular mirrors to oval tables, curved coffee tables to orb-shaped lighting, round is all the rage.
Blonde woods, washed treatments and light-toned finishes thrive. From floors to furnishings, beams to cabinetry, many décors are lightening up with fresh finishes that reject dark or drab.
Designers are elevating private spaces in the home with joyful, vibrant walls. Jaw-dropping wallpaper and fearless paint treatments transform walls from blah to ahhh.
Today’s top builders aren’t skimping on windows. Bold, large windows flood rooms with natural light and give the home a chic, modern finish.
Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, you can still enjoy the 2020 Utah Valley Parade of Homes. In addition to touring in person, you can tour each property virtually on their website from the safety of your own home. In-person tours are being hosted until Aug. 8.
