Best of San Antonio’s Parade of Homes

Last week, my coworkers & I went to go check out the Parade of Homes at the Dominion here in San Antonio.  With 12 different homes to tour, there was a lot of ground to cover.  Rather than boring you with every detail, I’ll get right to the good stuff.  Here are my personal faves:

.

BEST BACKSPLASH

This is one of the coolest backsplashes. Period.

.

 .

BEST FABRICS

Loving the Kravet fabrics in this room.

You may recognize this fabric pattern from a previous post.  The chairs look absolutely fab in it!

.

MOST COMFY SPACE

Slipcovered sectional.  Neutral palette.  Striped poufs.  Perfect place to curl up and read a book.

.

MOST INNOVATIVE MATERIAL

Maybe I’ve been living under a rock but I’ve never seen this type of wall covering before – recycled paper bound together like grasscloth!  Really cool!

.

BEST OUTDOOR SPACE

 This pool is to die for.  The steps across = pure genius.

.

 And the U-shaped built-in bench with the orange and sky blue pillows takes the cake.

.

 BEST CRAFT/ACTIVITY SPACE

.

With so much storage and counter space, this room would be the perfect place to house all my little DIY projects.

.

BEST LIVING SPACE

.

This Adam Wilson home was my favorite overall.  Love the use of materials and the open concept….Everything from the architecture to those Barcelona Chairs (*sigh*).

.

MOST CREATIVE HOME

Awesome architectural elements of this urban ranch.  Rustic meets modern, in a very interesting way!

.

Also in the Urban Ranch were these big red doors in the Media Room that closed off for privacy, or opened up the living/dining area for entertaining.  LOVE!!

.

BEST GREEN FEATURE

Yes, that is a giant rainwater collector.  My heart skipped a beat.  Such a great concept – especially here in San Antonio with all the water restrictions we have in the Summer.

.

BEST BATH

Ironically with all of the beautiful baths I saw, my favorite was the outdoor one.  Lets face it – I’m a sucker for pebble mosaics, subway tile, and natural sunlight.

.

BEST KITCHEN

I know this isn’t the best shot in the world, but I can promise you if you saw this Scavolini kitchen you would have fallen in love.

.

BEST DINING

Simple, yet stunning.

.

BEST LAUNDRY ROOM

Ah yes.  I MIGHT actually fold my clothes if I had this type of set up!  (Keyword is might, no promises there… )
