This weekend the hubs and I checked out the Kaleidoscope Of Homes in west Fort Worth. This is an event that is put on by the Greater Fort Worth Builders Association every year in which they sell tickets to the general public who would like to tour some grand homes in new developments around the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. Nifty idea, huh? I thought it was even cooler that part of the proceeds go to the Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital. So when Lobster came home with a couple of tickets, I was more than happy to strap on my trusty camera and spend the day gleaning inspiration from these gorgeous homes!
This year, the tour consisted of three homes. The first home we toured was the Hermoso Castillo by HGC Residential Development.
Here’s the floor plan:
What I loved about this home was how open the main area was and I loved what the interior designers did to the space. So bright and cheerful!
I’m a big fan of blue, so I especially loved the color scheme in this room. Soft, calming, pretty. Lovely. And I love the beams on the ceiling and the chandeliers!
Do you see the t.v. screen above the fireplace? With the push of a button, a faux “painting” comes down to cover the t.v. when not in use. I WANT one!
I love the details of the scroll work built into the arches between the main room and the kitchen. And don’t you love those curtains? I thought the bold stripe in the middle of the panel was a fantastic touch.
I adore this chair and the monogrammed pillow.
This little breakfast table caught my eye immediately. I love the soft blue legs and warm wood top.
And these slipcovers!!! Be still my heart…
I fell in love with this kitchen. So crisp and clean with touches of blue and fresh green. The marble countertops made me drool.
Isn’t this a fantastic little bar nook? Every house should come with one, don’t you think?
I need a formal dining room. With a fireplace. Stat.
This was the master bedroom. Lobster looks pretty relaxed with a free beer in hand.
Hello, lover. I need this closet. Badly. I think this closet is about four times the size of my current closet. I could LIVE in this closet. Who doesn’t want a closet like this? And the chandy! Perfection!
This was one of the extra bedrooms. I loved the gorgeous sage on the walls and the light airiness of the space. I especially loved the sitting area. I would have stolen those chairs if Lobster had let me. He seems to think I have an obsession with chairs and is trying his best to regulate me. Silly man.
What do you think? Gorgeous house, no? Stay tuned…I’ll be posting about the other two homes we toured later in the week!
