Maybe it was the perfect outdoor living space that inspired an update to your yard.
Perhaps it was the way the bold granite countertop went with your to-die-for white-kitchen.
Or, maybe you just wanted to meet Donny Osmond.
Whatever “it” was, visitors from around Utah Valley — and far beyond — saw dream homes and dreamy ideas at the 2016 Utah Valley Parade of Homes, presented by the Utah Valley Home Builders Association and sponsored by Osmond Designs.
Utah Valley Magazine selected one dreamy detail from each of the 40 homes. If you were one of the record-setting 29,253 attendees this year, here’s a stroll down memory lane — or a chance to peek into homes you didn’t have time to get to. If you didn’t attend, enjoy the next 14 pages and mark your calendar for next year’s real-time local Pinterest board on June 8-24, 2017.

Home #31, Ezra Lee Design + Build


This master bedroom took home a Silver Award from the People’s Choice Awards for Best Master Suite and is one of the highlighted features that led to this home earning a Platinum Award for Tier 6 homes in the Judges Choice competition.

Home #7, Arive Homes

This Gold Award-winning home was noted for its sweeping curved staircase in the great room and the ceiling details in the master.

Home #3, Rainey Homes

“This Parade home showcased a new look for the area. The whites, grays, brushed gold and navy were beautifully combined to create a Parade crowd favorite.” — Heather Osmond, owner of Osmond Designs

Home #35, Emerald Homes

Emerald Homes is the luxury building division of national powerhouse D.R. Horton. “The Palmer,” one of four homes showcased in Highland, was certainly luxurious.

Home #40, Raykon Construction

Builder Casey Cloward is known for his amazing carpentry, but 12,662 visitors to this home saw that his master bedrooms are measured perfectly, too.

Home #26, Oakwood Homes

In the heart of American Fork, Oakwood Homes displayed its urban-living, single-family style home that shows being the smallest home in the Parade doesn’t mean you can’t pack a punch.
