I had the pleasure of touring some new construction homes in October as part of the Parade of Homes in Raleigh, for 2020! This home has some amazing touches top to bottom, and is filled with great design ideas. I left feeling so inspired about what I want in my own home- I had to share some of these photos!
You can see another tour on the Parade of Homes in Raleigh too – this stunning more traditional Nantucket style home, which was also part of the Triangle Parade of Homes tour!
Parade of Homes in Raleigh, 2020
The Parade of Homes in Raleigh is a self guided tour where you can peek inside newly constructed award winning homes, built by local builders. It’s a great way to keep yourself up on new design trends and see the latest custom builds!
If you are renovating or building – I recommend taking part in these tours in your area, as they are loaded with ideas and inspiration! You also will want to read this post to see the 7 biggest kitchen trends for 2021.
See Inside This Dream Home on the Triangle Parade of Homes Tour
This home was crafted so carefully, it looked as if it was an existing home in the area that had been perhaps renovated! But all of the homes on the triangle parade of homes are new builds – and this one had so much character from all the custom touches it was loaded with charm! The designer was Rebecca Driggs Interiors, and she did a fabulous job.
The dining room was right in the front of the home, between the entry and the wet bar. Look at all those gorgeous windows! If you notice, they are black in the front of the house but white inside.
I thought I was a fan of super light oak hardwoods, but I fell in love with the color of all the hardwoods the builder used in this home.
The stain has a rich medium tone that brings warmth and comfort to the space! I think it’s an especially nice contrast with the black. This warm wood was used as beams, trim, and shelving throughout the house and gives it a cohesive feel.
Isn’t it funny when you think you love a style done a very certain way, but then you see it done differently and it’s pulled off so well it completely reverses your thinking? That’s why I love the Parade of Home Tours so much – they will open your creative mind!
All the wood beams that were done with the same stain as the floors are making these rooms sing! The use of black, brass and wood as a theme throughout the house really sets off the crisp white.
This home had cute bathrooms throughout.
Touring the Parade of Homes in Raleigh in true 2020 style:
And of course, a few “fun” touches done by this Raleigh builder to really set the house apart. A built in dog house (is that what you would call this? More like a dog room!) is not only adorable but practical too! The framed photo of the dog inside his room is hilarious.
The tile that was picked is the ideal example of form and function. It is practical for a mudroom with pets- but equally as beautiful, looking similar to a dark brick.
Each bedroom upstairs had a secret room or closet, hidden behind bookshelves. Obviously every kid’s dream, including my girl, who wanted to move right in!
A look out the back bedroom window at what kind of views the neighborhood offers- more gorgeous homes on a hilly tree lined street in Raleigh!
You will love taking a peek at my favorite home – a true classic Nantucket style home that was also part of the Triangle Parade of Homes in Raleigh, NC. You can see my post sharing the inside of that dreamy home here!
