An Inspiring Visit to Cincinnati's Homearama

I attended Homearama for the first time this past weekend! I'm really surprised it has taken me this long to make my way to this annual event. Without a doubt, I would live in this Carriage Hill community, especially since it provides a horse farm atmosphere. Here's a recap for those of you who couldn't make it this weekend or those looking for inspiration. Enjoy!

The home below gets my vote for top exterior design. I love the gorgeous porch area. I could totally see the hubby and I sitting out on the porch in the early morning hours. Hubby with a coffee in his hand. Me with a breakfast pastry. Perfect!

I would totally snuggle up in these areas...

This next one seems suitable for a teenage girl's room or guest retreat. It might be a little too bright for my personal taste.

My friend recently used a similar technique when painting her daughter's room. Notice how they taped off sections of the wall to create an illusion. It really helps to break up the room and add interest to the space.

Another vibrant area suitable for a teenager...

The next feature was absolutely stunning! I definitely think I deserve a stovetop like this one. Notice the water spout for filling up pots.

I gravitated towards these chairs, because of the gorgeous print. I would welcome them into my home.

I was surprised to see that most decor pieces still had price tags. I'm assuming the stores loan the designers the pieces for the show. I was thrilled to learn they choose places like Home Goods and Pottery Barn - two of my favorite stores. 

Here are some of my favorite details that can easily be recreated in your own home...

Coffee beans seem so versatile. Notice how they used them to stage a kitchen island setting. I've seen them used in a variety of ways, particularly in glasses to hold makeup brushes or writing tools.

I think this owl pillow from Home Goods will be the perfect addition to our living room for fall. Only $16.99!

Lastly, I had to show you one high end, but totally unnecessary feature.... A dance floor in the basement. I told my friends that if I lived here, I would rent this space out for children's birthday parties.

At the end of the day, we had to bust a move, especially since a hot worker guy offered to take our picture.

Are there any features you would like to recreate in your home? I was definitely inspired to go home and move some things around.
