My family and IÂ went to the Vesta Home show a few weeks ago. For those of you who don’t know it’s a twice a year showing of open homes where you can look at what the home builders are doing in regards to new home construction. The open homes are for sale and are filled with several home decor items like art, rugs, lamps, candles, sofas, pictures and more. Anyone who owns a house or is planning on building a new home should make the trip. This years show is in Arlington, Tennessee and is from October 10 to November 1. Detailed info is here: http://www.mahba.com/vesta/index.html.
There are 8 houses this year and the focus is going green. The houses are smaller than previous years and the price range is $299-354K from several Memphis builders like Signature Homes, Regency Home Builders, Faxon Gillis and more. I enjoyed walking from house to house and looking at the new home accessories. One house actually had a piano playing which was nice. There was even a relaxing Koi pond in the backyard of one house. I really liked the outdoor fireplaces and leisure areas. I guess that’s the “in thing” now. When we build our new house I definitely want to add an outdoor fireplace. There were two homes that had home theaters. I voted for the one with the big red comfy seats as the best home. As usual the man from Henco Furniture was there. I was surprised that his company only decorated one home. In previous years, the decorations were from a mix of designers in each home. Most of the home decor items were from The Great American Home Store. This year was odd because virtually no items had the price tag on them except for the house that Henco Furniture decorated. I’m definitely going to have to make it down to Henco one of these Saturdays. After the show is over, you can buy home accessories that caught your eye. I remember one year one lady purchased one of the homes along with everything in it. Now that must be NICE!
Well this weekend is the last week of the show, so if you’re going to go you better get to it!
