Participating in the Parade of Homes has always been a rewarding experience for us at Thomasville and this year is no different. We were able to furnish house #27 in the Salt Lake Parade of Homes, built by Jarom Iacono at Tree Haven Homes. With our talented interior designer Michele Reid at the helm, the 7,928 square foot home came together beautifully.
“I have worked with some of my favorite clients on this home,” Michele says in describing her experience with this project. “They are so fun and easy to work with. They have over 20 grandchildren and even great grandchildren. The home is definitely built for a large family to enjoy when they get together. Furnishings are from many different great lines that Thomasville has. It is so nice to select pieces from each line. There are no limitations.”
The home is transitional, with light colors and contemporary lines that are refreshing. Neutral grays were used as a base with a pop of turquoise.
The great room was Michele’s favorite room to design. She explains, “I think it feels inviting and alive with the turquoise velvet chairs and a pop of turquoise in the pillows and accessories, but staying neutral with fabrics on the sofas and rugs that are textural and durable to seat a large family.” The two sofas, two chairs, and two leather ottomans provide plenty of seating that is inviting to guests. Michele continues, “I always like to have a little bit of leather so everything isn’t fabric. I love the airy florals with glass containers which keep the room light and airy.”
With 12 foot ceilings and a wall with floor-to-ceiling bookcases, the den’s architecture is stunning. To balance out the weight of the bookcases, Michele lightened the room with silvers, grays and creams. “I think it is a calming room where anyone can sit down and put their thoughts together,” she says. “I love the two distressed gray tufted leather chairs that are so comfortable.”
The master bedroom is elegant, with the off-white tufted bed and its gray driftwood finish. The height of the headboard draws the eye in and becomes a statement piece. “I like having mirrors above nightstands,” Michele explains. “They bring so much light to the room and are so elegant when the lamps are lit. I also did the credenza with mirrors. I think it brings romance to a room. The blue chairs are some of my favorites with a unique fabric that shimmers, bringing in some elegance.”
The basement family room area is more casual. Having a relaxing space to spend time with family was a key objective for this room, and the gray leather sectional is one of the most comfortable you can find. The reclaimed barn wood in the bookcases adds some fun. The 1950’s kitchen area only adds to the whimsical feeling.
It’s no surprise that the home won Best of Show. We feel fortunate to have participated in such an incredible project. See it for yourself before the Salt Lake Parade of Homes ends this Saturday.
