2016 Parade of Homes Photos

The Central Ohio BIA Parade of Homes is a showcase of fine living and decorating trends that promise to wow, and this year was truly spectacular. Built on the former site of Shamrock Golf Club in Powell, Ohio, the 2016 edition took place in a community named Verona Village. Custom home builders Romanelli and Hughes, Bob Webb, Memmer Homes and 13 others were represented with prices ranging from $900,000 to $1.3 million.

2016 Parade of Homes design trends:

  • White kitchens. Almost without exception, marble counters and white shaker cabinets were the choice du jour.
  • Indoor/outdoor living. Bringing the outside in and vice versa was a notable feature, some with full floor to ceiling windows/doors and screens that open with a push of a button.
  • Space for man’s best friend. Dog showers or baths near the laundry room were an added convenience.
  • Massive Showers. Some were as big as an efficiency apartment in New York City!
  • Shabby chic. If you are a fan of Fixer Upper with Chip and Joanna Gaines, you would have loved these houses.
  • Combinations of elements. Mixture of light wood and dark metals were omnipresent.
  • Barn doors. They are not just for barns any more and this trend has no end in sight.

Enjoy our photos!

Equal parts dog lover, real estate aficionado, social butterfly and music enthusiast. My idea of a good day is putting the pups in the car, turning up the tunes, sharing funny stories and looking at some houses. If this sounds like fun, let's start a journey that ends with a lifetime friendship and a new home for you. My love of all things houses started by driving around Central Ohio with my mom and admiring the fabulous neighborhoods our area offers. The radio was always on and my eyes were wide open. I loved the variety of designs and imagining what life was like in those places we saw. Perhaps that's the best thing about being a Realtor is knowing that a house is so much more than the wood, stone and concrete of which it is made. It's a place for birthday parties, movie nights, sleepovers, graduation celebrations and creating memorable moments with loved ones. There's few greater joys than watching buyer's faces light up when they imagine these things during a showing and knowing I am the one that has been invited to be part of the process of making the place where this will all happen theirs. I could tell you how I've been a part of hundreds of real estate transactions, that my experience will provide lasting financial value, and that my area knowledge will help you achieve your goals, whatever they may be. And all of these things would, of course, be true. I'd rather, though, share that I made real estate my life passion in 2007 and have since created countless meaningful relationships along the way. Ultimately, for all the things I've done, getting to be even just a small part of such an important stage of so many people's lives gives me more pride than anything else I could imagine.
