Parade of Homes Trends & Highlights

Pin It!
I recently went to some of the houses featured in the Utah Valley Parade of Homes with my friend Toni from Design Dazzle
Here are some of the things that stood out to me.
1 - Modern French Design
This beautiful dining area was in one of my favorites - Home #24 - "The Highland Hideaway Manor". The decor in this house was traditional, but current. I fell in love with it!

Local Yocal - Tea at the SLC Grand America

Pin It!
One gem you absolutely must see if you are visiting Salt Lake City - or if you live here - is The Grand America Hotel. I've blogged about it before here & here


One of the highlights of "The Grand" is their traditional tea. {If you don't drink caffeinated tea, there are lots of herbal caffeine-free options & hot cocoa.}

A Contemporary Family Room

Pin It!
John & Kerri live in a beautiful contemporary penthouse downtown with bamboo floors, cable stair railings & amazing views. Their family room was already furnished with a sectional that wasn't really their style {and it was getting tired & worn}. When they called on me for help to spiffy up their space, we decided to start from scratch . . .

Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe

Pin It!

In my last post, I shared some of the details of my friend Cathy's 
For the food, we served a chicken veggie crock pot dish, several fruit & greens salads & rolls - all in those "Cafe Rio" aluminum bowls. My friend Becky made a  peach cobbler & I'm sharing her delicious recipe with her permission. It's SO easy, but no one has to know! It's our little secret.

From Crappy to Happy - My Walk-In Closet Makeover

Pin It!
There are few things that make me as happy as organization. If everything is clean & organized, it makes me feel like I can face the things in my life that I have no control over. I've been meaning to take on my master bedroom closet for some time. And now that it's done, I have a good feeling every time I go in there.

Hawaiian Cake - A Refreshing Treat You'll Love

Pin It!
- Photo by Christian Lunt - 

This cake is different & refreshing. It is served cold & it actually tastes better if made as a sheet cake in a 9x13 pan {I made it as a layer cake so it would look prettier for the photos, but I didn't like it as much}. Try it next time you want to serve something out of the ordinary.
