A few weekends ago we attended the Indianapolis Home Show. We went just for fun, really. The highlights for me were the landscape/hardscape vendors and the show home that they construct in the Exhibition Hall of the state fair grounds.
I really liked the show home – both the architecture and the interior design. The show home was built by Fischer Homes and they teamed up with Touch of Class interior designer Joy Perkins. Here were our favorite parts and our take-aways:
Take note of the different window casing colors. I love windows with black mullions and have wondered if we could get that effect by adding black window casings in certain rooms. This shows me its possible to do different casing colors in different rooms.
I really enjoyed the house tour. I thought it was really well decorated and a different style than you see in a lot of model homes and show homes. Going to these events is one of our favorite things to do. And surprisingly, our kids don’t seem to mind it. In fact, our oldest (5 years old) even seems to enjoy it! She still talks about a bedroom we saw in a house last summer. You can get so many ideas, and its just fun to look at pretty things.
You can expect more of these types of posts. We will definitely hit up the Home-A-Rama this summer, and there are also awesome home tours in some of the great old neighborhoods in Indianapolis that we have been to a few times.
We’d love to hear what you think about the house or if you have any good suggestions on other home tours we should attend relatively close to Indianapolis.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures of the kitchen renovation at our first house! Now let’s talk about our current house. We have so many ideas for this house. Like I mentioned in my first post, we built the house. However, it was not custom, and our budget prevented us from doing everything we wanted.… Read More

It was a very well kept house and was clean and structurally sound, but it definitely needed some updating! Parker had big plans for a kitchen renovation. As I am known to do, I tried to… Read More
About four years ago, we moved from our corner home in a city neighborhood to our corner home in the suburbs. Plus, Parker grew up on a corner, so there’s that. We loved our first house, and put a lot of love into fixing it up (I hope to share some of that here). Once… Read More
