I had the opportunity to tour the King's Chapel Parade of Homes in Arrington, Tennessee last week at an event hosted by Forest Home Media. Several bloggers were invited for a tour and high tea to promote the event.
King's Chapel Parade of Homes is full of gorgeous homes decorated with Christmas charm.
All to benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The event starts December 6, 2014- December 21, 2014. Tickets are $12, twelve and under are free. This is an event not to miss.
King's Chapel is a community built with 350 acres of dedicated green space.
I have to admit, I was in heaven.
There were so many vignettes, holiday ideas, and designer influences all over the beautifully constructed homes by Drees Home Builders, Greg & Rains, Arnold Homes and Tennessee Valley Homes..
Each one had their own designs and personal touches. Each one had something that stood out.
It was sensory overload for this creative soul. You just have to see for yourself. Note: pictures do not do it justice.
So sit back because you are in for a treat.
This was one of my favorite homes. Layered with fresh greens inside and out. This home was built by Drees Home Builders.
love the use of a drapery rod for lettered banner flags
Pinterest worthy ideas
Adorable place settings
and have you noticed the greenery?
The fresh and dried pieces of nature is what sets off the look to this home. There is nothing like real floral design. From niches to staircases this home had it all.
The kitchens were huge and beautiful. I can't even imagine cooking in those spaces.
This was my favorite kitchen. Loved the tile work and cabinet space and oh the lighting!
Two islands...enough said!
amazing marble slab island
Then there were the stunning bedrooms
lots of color and that bed has such charm
lovely details like the iron bed and love the sliding door
soothing color pallets
and vibrant ones
creative and playful too
Not sure how kid friendly this is but I love it!
I really love texture in design. When I decorate, I like the volume of layering textures in a space. I like layering paints for effects, colors fabrics and woods.
These homes did not disappoint.
This reclaimed wood ceiling ...ahhhh
stone walls and different fabrics
tobacco stick ceiling
technique painted walls and faux finishes
Love the layering of this one done by Bella Tucker Finishes
I am inspired to try this on a piece of furniture
The bathrooms highlights were the tiling and the tubs. Here are a few of my favorites. I can imagine taking a bubble bath in these but don't know how I would manage to get out of them!
It was so enjoyable to see all of the little nooks. Doggies, Kids and Grownups could all enjoy having their own little retreats.
Since Dreamingincolor is based around creativity, these pieces were some that stood out that I had to share. Painted, artsy, industrial and refreshed items.
lots of pin-terrific ideas!
This probably should have been two posts but there were just so many things I wanted to share.
Oh and the big Christmas reveal of Make-a-Wish trees. Bloggers Jenna of Rain on a Tin Roof ( Grammy tree) Lesley of Chaotically Creative (glam tree), KariAnne of Thistlewood (circus tree), and Kristy of the Decorologist (Greece Tree) had themed trees of each Make-a-Wish participant. They will be auctioned off in a silent auction. Here's a sneak peek.
a few more Christmas treats
Even Elf on the Shelf made an appearance!
We then had a High Tea sponsored by Kirklands and prepared by Chef Brian.
So excited to have been part of this event. Please get a ticket and support this worthy cause. This holiday season pay it forward. We all know of someone that has benefited by Make-A-Wish. It is truly a wonderful gift.
