this year's award winners. The Grand Award Winners are chosen by the public and will be announced in early August.
the complete list of homes this year.
My favorite happened to be House #4: Caroline
. At 3,920 square feet it had slight touches of sophisticated Southern charm with some European influence, and all the modern amenities you could possibly want. Aside from the beautiful touches of detail in this four bedroom and three-bath house there was simply the comfort of home.
House #2: The Pottery Playhouse
was a close second place in my mind because of the touches of gorgeous craftsman style throughout the entire home, but it also took into consideration usable living space for the family, even by building a whimsical cottage playhouse for children under the basement staircase, which my kids would absolutely die to have.
House #7: The Wilburn
was a very close third for me. It took my breath away from the street at first with it's craftsman’s exterior and beautiful turquoise door. Even more touches of turquoise were sprinkled throughout the home, which I loved at first, but then it became a little too overwhelming.
Be on the lookout for Homearama 2015 around this same time next year here in Louisville!
