Do you love touring other people’s homes, or am I the only one? I (miraculously) talked David into spending our date night at the Des Moines Home Expo last weekend and I cannot stop dreaming about the pretty homes we saw!
Unlike the home shows I’ve attended in the past that are rows of booths in an event center, you actually get to tour the inside of real homes at this show! There were six homes on the tour, all at the end of a cul-de-sac in a new subdivision so we could literally walk from house to house. Totally my idea of a great date night ;).
A different builder built each home so it was fun to see the different styles. Some were pre-sold while others are spec houses, all around the million dollar price range. And every home was fully furnished so it was really neat to see how the local designers styled everything.
These houses are most definitely not in our budget, but a girl can dream, right? I got tons of inspiration for our own house and thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite features with you today.
I hope you enjoyed a little peek at the Des Moines Home Expo! I always think it’s so fun to look around at houses, especially when they are fully furnished. Even if you can’t afford the homes, you’ll certainly walk away with some new ideas. And it was helpful for me to hear what David thought about different features.
Have a great day!
