I just returned from the 2019 Salt Lake Parade of Homes and I am so excited to share with you guys a recap of the tour. Let me just tell you guys that I think that this year’s parade was by far one of the best parades I have ever seen over the years. I saw so many new design ideas and emerging home trends that I was so inspired with every home I toured. So many fresh and creative ideas that we could use in our own homes.
Let’s jump right into my recap because I have so much to share with you!
The first home I toured was built by Eagle Point Homes and as I walked in, I instantly fell in love with the oak floors throughout the home and kitchen. Light white oak floors continues to be one of the biggest new home trends that I have been seeing the last 9-12 months in new construction.
This kitchen is so well laid out with lots of room and I really like the mix of oak lower cabinetry with the white uppers. The white uppers help to break up the wood tones and keeps it light.
I also loved the built-in beverage/coffee bar with the chalkboard and upper storage in the kitchen. This is so practical for a variety of uses and such a smart idea.
I had a chance to visit at length with the builder and he told me that the oak floors are actually a brand new product from Shaw floors with solid wood on the top surface layer and luxury vinyl on the bottom. This is brilliant because you get the solid wood look on the surface and the waterproof benefits of vinyl on the bottom layer. The builder told me that this product was not much more in price than luxury vinyl!! Wow! Isn’t this awesome?!
I’m in the process of trying to find out more about this wide plank new product from Shaw and will do a post on it as soon as I get additional information from the company.
One of my all-time favorite home builders is Silverhawk Enterprises, which some of you may remember their amazing kitchen two years ago from the 2017 SLC parade here. This year, Silverhawk hit out of the park again with an amazing Nantucket style home that was mind blowing beautiful at every turn!
Just look at all of the incredible exterior details.
I’ll be sharing a full home tour of this home in the next couple of weeks but just to give you a little peek, the kitchen in this home was my favorite space! It was HUGE!!
Notice the ceiling details and the stunning quartzite countertops. Oh and that island color is perfection!
I also love the marble subway tile on the backsplash.
On the left side of the kitchen, they built a beautiful long banquette.
Again, I’ll be sharing a lot of more of this amazing home in the next couple of weeks.
Another home that I loved on this year’s parade was a home built by Sage Homes that was loaded with beautiful details. I instantly fell in love walking into the home when I saw this beautiful dark gray moody accent wall.
I loved the kitchen layout and cabinetry color, which is Sherwin Williams Repose Gray (one of my favorite colors).
This kitchen sink corner with the floating shelves and black overhead lights was so pretty to see in person!
I love the Repose Gray on the living room cabinetry mixed with the white painted fireplace. Pretty combination! By the way, I saw a lot of white painted brick fireplaces during the parade.
I was so surprised to see so many homes this year with aged brass hardware and fixtures. I personally thought brass was not as popular as it was a couple years ago but this year, almost every home had brass.
I thought this wood accent wall was so smart and beautiful in the Sage home.
Another great idea in the Sage home was this black tiled bathroom accent wall. This is such an easy (and inexpensive) idea to add some drama to a bathroom. This could be done in any color of tile!
I shared a post a couple months ago about the plaid tile trend here and I saw a lot of plaid tiled bathroom, mudroom and laundry room floors this year during the parade. I loved this pattern in the Sage home.
Sage Homes had a second home this year during the parade, which was one of the most interesting and creative homes I have ever seen. It is an industrial modern home with exposed beams throughout and I really loved it. Notice below looking into the living room that the steel structural beams that are necessary for the home were powder coated black and exposed. It really was such a great idea and works in this space.
Again we see white oak floors (these are solid wood). White oak floors were in almost every home this year whether LVP, engineered or solid.
Notice how they incorporated wood plank on the ceiling in the entryway. Such a pretty idea!
The master bathroom was so beautiful in this home. This HUGE shower with the black grid shower door was so pretty. Notice that the top pane opens for venting.
The smaller guest bathroom also had the industrial style shower doors with a gorgeous black accent wall. Lots of black accent walls in this home.
The black and white marble basketweave mosaic floor tile is so beautiful.
Black, white and oak was the color palette in this home and I loved how they mixed in all of the modern art with this palette.
The dining room black modern accent wall brings a lot of drama as you step into the home.
Modern industrial design style is really becoming very popular in the Salt Lake Area. This year was the first time I was able to tour a couple of these homes and the Sage home really blended modern, transitional industrial design beautifully. What do you guys think about this style?
There are several more homes that I want to share with you but I have run out of room here. If I add any more images, the post will not load so I will do a “Part 2” shortly. If you missed the 2019 Utah Valley Parade of Homes recap that I did last month, you can see that here. Also, last year’s Salt Lake Parade recap is here.
Thanks for stopping by today friends!

Hi. Thank you for your posts on the home tour designs! So beautiful! Funny that 5 out of 6 homes on the Newport Beach CA. Home tour this past May had white oak wide plank floors also. And many had smooth shiplap walls, wood plank ceilings in area or beams. And most exteriors were super white with black window trim. It’s a Magnolia Chip and Joanna Gaines epidemic!
Ann C says
I liked the looks of all the homes you featured. Unfortunately the cleaner voice in my head questioned how difficult it would be to keep the Layla’s clean in those showers with all the metal grids. Brought back memories of the old windows with all the panes. At least now the panes are in between the layers of glass. Can’t wait to see your next post. Thanks .
Susan P says
Can I ask you wha the ceiling heights were on these kitchen?
Leslie Mann says
Do you know the color of the front door at the Nantucket home?
Shelley Streit says
Hi there! Just wondering if you were able to get more info about the shaw flooring that you mentioned in this post?
Please find out what new product from Shaw Flooring was used that was a vinyl/hardwood combo!
Do you know what color of blue the front door on the Nantucket home is?
Raquel Rusu says
More info on the shaw flooring?? Please!!!
Laramie Dunn says
Hi so sorry it took us a while to get back to you. The wood floors are by Shaw if you call Infinity flooring and talk with Marti he can give you all the details on this floor.
Would you happen to know where the wood floating shelves in the photo can be purchased? I’ve been coming the internet and haven’t found the size, thickness or natural color shown which I absolutely love.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I painted one of my dining room walls with SW Tricorn Black. I love it! But, I cannot find a good coordinating color for the other three walls! I want a light airly creamy color- not stark white and not grey and not yellow/ gold. Do you have any suggestions?
