We had a fun afternoon Sunday at the local Parade of Homes. We toured eight houses, each from different area builders, and I think it was a successful show. It's always amusing listening to all the other people touring the houses to see who likes what.
For the most part, I think everyone played it pretty safe design-wise. These showhouses generally aren't about trends or pushing the envelope, so I didn't see any extremely bold colors, patterns, or off-beat design choices, but I saw a lot that I liked that would appeal to the average homeowner. There were a few things that weren't necessarily my taste, sure, but nothing that really turned me off—that has happened in the past.
I wanted to share the elements and ideas I liked best that, for the most part, anyone could do.
In honor of the great New York State Fair's opening day, I present the New York State table by creative studio 900 Blok. This solid-wood carved accent table is the perfect quirky touch to any home that's Empire State-proud. Available through Urban Outfitters, in four lacquer colors.
The New York State Fair runs today through Labor Day at the fairgrounds, here in Syracuse, NY. I'm looking forward to going there with my family for kid and adult fun, fried goodness, candy apples, and of course, a look at this year's butter sculpture.
